The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Slap bang in the middle of the UK, our Derbyshire holiday cottages are welcome retreats whatever the time of year. From family adventures and romantic escapes in the Peak District to a cultural and shopping break with friends in Derby, this wonderful county offers the finest blend of ingredients to keep everyone happy.
Get out and about in the Peak District, Britain's first national park, a sprawling region of scenic delights mostly set within Derbyshire's boundaries. Ramble, cycle or ride a plethora of traffic-free paths across dales, hills, moors and valleys. (Why not walk with like-minded souls and time your Derbyshire cottage holiday around a walking festival?) Scale sheer rock faces and soaring edges, or head deep down into a labyrinth of underground caverns. Bring binoculars for feathery encounters with many kinds of birds, irons for a round of golf or a wetsuit for windsurfing on Carsington Water. Or follow the trail of Hollywood film locations. So much here to discover!
Another reason to consider a self-catering stay in Derbyshire is to sample the many manmade attractions. Take your pick from historic houses and glorious gardens like the Chatsworth Estate, attractive settlements with fancy architecture like the spa town of Buxton, industrial heritage like Derwent Valley Mills - not to mention delicious local delicacies like Bakewell Pudding. And if you have younger ones tagging along, all the thrills of Alton Towers are just over the border in Staffordshire.
Here you will find cottages throughout Derbyshire, including in The Peak District and in towns and villages like Castleton, Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock.
