Discover The Peak District

Discover The Peak District

Elegant country houses and ancient halls, subterranean caverns and dramatic hills, heritage railways and pretty villages; with so many wonderful things to see and do, Derbyshire is the perfect place for a cottage getaway.

The Peak District National Park encompasses miles of moorland, heaths, woods and hills. It is one of the UK’s most popular destinations for walking and cycling holidays and there is a wealth of trails to explore for lovers of the great outdoors.  A visit to the Peak District wouldn’t be complete without a journey up the breathtakingly beautiful Stanage Edge.  Gazing far and wide from atop this impressive stony outcrop will have you feeling as though you’re stood at the very end of the world.
