Some areas are likelier to attract bigger price rises than others in 2021, as their streets become increasingly attractive and demand pushes up the value of houses.
We spoke to independent estate agency ELR – which has a Peak District branch in Hathersage – to find out which locations buyers are likely to focus on in the months to come.
Tideswell has 'seen good growth over recent years', says Tim Venn, ELR director and valuer. "It has, dare I say, a bit of a café culture scene - lots of eateries and delis. It's the second-biggest settlement in the Peak District, but is still a village. I think it will only get better in Tideswell." Photo: Anne Shelley
"It's so well-served for a village of its size," says Tim Venn of Tideswell, home to St John the Baptist Church, known as the 'Cathedral of the Peak'. "People do commute there from Manchester and to Sheffield. You've got the Wye Valley on your doorstep and places like Chee Dale and the Monsal Trail." Photo: Anne Shelley
"It's a Hope Valley village, it's got the train line and it's very close to Sheffield," says Tim Venn, explaining Grindleford's appeal. Photo: Chris Lawton
Tim Venn adds about Grindleford: "You've got the Longshaw Estate, beautiful National Trust woodland and the River Derwent that meanders through." Photo: Roger Nadal
