Welcome to Britain's first National Park, the Peak District National Park, a sprawling mass of rolling hills and remote moorland peppered with rocky outcrops and limestone caves. For lovers of the 'great outdoors' it's truly paradise found!
Step out from your Peak District cottage and discover landscapes ripe for rambling, rock climbing, mountain biking and more. Explore the gentle hills of the White Peak or the peat bogs and wild, windswept scenery of the Dark Peak. Cycle, ride or walk along the traffic-free Tissington Trail. Go underground and enjoy the thrills of potholing among dark, spooky caves. Or float across the skies by hot air balloon and soak up the views from higher ground. Where else in the world would you find such a wonderful mix of activities?
Add to this a thriving cultural scene and a fascinating heritage. Find pre-historic sites such as Arbor Low and exquisite stately homes like Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House (Austen's inspiration for Pemberley in her masterpiece 'Pride & Prejudice'). Come evening, snuggle up in your self catering cottage or enjoy a night on the town at Buxton's stunning Opera House. And don't miss a stop in Bakewell for a generous slice of that legendary pudding!
