Derbyshire Holiday Cottages To Rent

The Peak District National Park will always be the major attraction in Derbyshire, where visitors will find a rich mix of large and small Derbyshire self catering holiday accommodation in which to enjoy a holiday at anytime of the year. Most visitors opt to stay in a Derbyshire holiday cottage to enjoy the delights of the Peak District whether on foot by bike or in a car. And, if walking this natural marvel is not enough, adventurous visitors can go potholing in limestone caves, climb down the Hope Valley and even try paintballing at Wild Park Leisure in Ashbourne. Culture lovers should head for the historic spa town of Buxton with its wonderful Opera House, Pavilion and grand Victorian architecture, or visit Chatswoth House and Gardens near Bakewell with their wonderful lakes, cascading waterfall andviews of rural Derbyshire. Whle Chatsworth is regarded as the best and most impressive of England's stately homes, the lesser known but equally impressive Kedleston Halll also located in Derbyshire near Quarndon, will give Chatsworth a good run for its money. Visit both and decide for yourselves! Within the Peak District, walkers and cyclists will find some excellent trails such as The High Peak Trail or the Tissington Trail for exploring on foot or by bicycle. Some of theese have been converted from railway lines closed by Dr. Beeching, now enjoying a new life as scenic trails through the Derbyshire Countryside.
