Peak District and Derbyshire Self Catering Accommodation

The Peak District straddles Staffordshire and Derbyshire and offers a wealth of outdoor activities for the intrepid (and, more sedate) explorer. IThere is also a splendid choice of self-catering accommodation in quaint cosy holiday cottages. Some of these are in historic towns such as Buxton and Bakewell, while, for a real Peak District escape, there are plenty of remote moorland cottages or farm cottages to choose from. If you like walking or cycling there are miles of stunning hills, valleys and trails to explore on your own or with friends, family or just the dog. Alternatively, to ensure you don’t miss anything, try many of the Peak District Ranger guided tours. Enjoy a ramble with an expert knowing you won’t get lost and they will have all your questions answered along the way. The Peak District isn’t just about walking the hills. Trips to some of the beautiful Peak District villages such as Ashford in the Water (known as the Peak District Venice), Whaley Bridge and Castleton are a must and a great way to enjoy all the area has to offer.
