The Duncombe Arms pub in Ellastone is situated 5 minutes walk from Cross Farm along Main Road. There are plenty of good pubs offering excellent meals in the locality, including the award winning Coach and Horses in Fenny Bentley.
|Ellastone is also the home of 'Adam Bede'. In the book 'Adam Bede' (1859), George Eliot took the well-worn tale of a lovely dairy-maid seduced by a careless squire, and out of it created a wonderfully innovative and sympathetic portrait of the lives of ordinary Midlands working people - their labours and loves, their beliefs, their talk. The lovely 'Adam Bede' house still stands in Ellastone, 6 minutes walk away from Cross Farm.|
|For visitors who enjoy walks, there are plenty of walking spots to choose from near Cross Farm. Nearby Weaver Hills has spectacular views of the beautiful countryside. If that is not enough, then the whole of the Peak District awaits. Dovedale, Illam, Bakewell and Chatsworth are all within an hour's drive away.|
