Holiday Cottages in The Pennines

As it is often described as the “Backbone of England” there are no prizes for guessing that the Pennines run down the middle of the country. These limestone hills (and montains) stretch almost the length of middle England from the Scottish border at the Cheviot Hills through Cumbrian Fells and The Yorkshire Dales, finally ending at The Peak District in Derbyshire. Visitors will find themselves welcome at hundreds of luxury barn conversions and holiday cottages in quaint stone villages from Derbyshire to Northumberland. Most of these will have a pub in which a typically excellent local ale can be enjoyed. The whole range can be walked via The Pennine Way, one of England's most notable long distance footpaths.

Much of the region is regarded as “an area of outstanding natural beauty” and a wonderful place to visit and take long walks with the dog.  

Although the start of the Pennines is usually said to begin in the High Peak district of Derbyshire at Edale (the start of the Pennine Way), they extend south into Staffordshire and the southern parts of Cheshire and Derbyshire.  The natural scenic beauty of Pennine landscapes makes the region a major tourist destination particularly for those looking to walk or cycle through them or climb its peaks.. It's also a mecca for outdoor sporting enthusiasts, with plenty of opportunities for climbing, kayaking, caving and mountain biking.
