Adventure Time | Hiking To Dovedale Stepping Stones

With it being autumn time and so pretty outside what better way to enjoy the season than go for a hike?

With the Peak District full of pretty trails and paths to hike we headed to dovedale to find the pretty stepping stones which go across the river. Dovedale is located at the bottom of the Peak District near the little village Ilam. The river dove runs alongside dovedale with a little path between the hills to the stepping stones.

When visiting the stepping stones you can park at a variety of different car parks. 

The car park in Ilam is one of the furthest away from the stepping stones but will allow you to see the most on your walk. 

However if you are walking from Ilam be prepared to walk through fields with sheep and cows. 

The walk to the stepping stones is signposted when walking through the fields. 

The path to the stepping stones runs along the side of the river ... 

all you need to do is follow the path to the end... 

The stepping stones are easy to cross - some gaps may however be bigger than others so make sure you look where you are stepping and wear shoes that won't be slippery. 

When across to the other side you can continue your walk following the path up the hill - or walk back down the other side of the river and cross the little bridge on the way back. 

You can follow the same path bath to Ilam through the sheep and cow fields. 

Ilam is home to Ilam park - a national trust house and gardens. The gardens include a pretty little church surrounded by sheep and a house to explore. 

Watch out for the little duck signs near the road... 

Ilam park is a pretty national trust house with beautiful grounds and gardens... 

We hope you enjoy visiting the stepping stones and Ilam park as much as we did!
