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 paint-balling at Wild Park Leisure in Ashbourne. If you fancy a swim, then why not book a luxury Derbyshire holiday cottage with a pool? 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 and views of rural Derbyshire. While 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 these have been converted from railway lines closed by Dr. Beeching, now enjoying a new life as scenic trails through the Derbyshire Countryside.

Going up: If you'd prefer another form of travel then head for the beautiful town on Matlock Bath at the foot of a steep valley and take a cable car up to the Heights of Abraham. Going down: You don't have to be an expert pot-holer to go underground: just visit the inspiring Poole’s Cavern often referred to as Derbyshire's 'hidden wonder'.

There's plenty for children to do as well, even if joining the family for walk or cycle ride through stunning countryside is not enough. Gulliver's Theme Park at Matlock Bath will entertain them (and the young at heart) for hours. Alternatively, treat them to a work out on the Go-Ape ropes course near Buxton.

Visitors in the latter part of June will be able to enjoy a very local tradition, that of well dressing when villages in Derbyshire decorate ancient village wells - a charming and pleasant way to pass a couple of days, especially if combined with a lunch in the many pubs, restaurants and tea rooms to be found in the locality returning to your holiday home for a relaxed evening toasting crumpets by the fireside or eating al fresco on the terrace on a warm summer evening. Whether staying in the Peak District or elsewhere in this historic midland County, self catering visitors will be delighted with the splendid choice of Derbyshire cottages to rent.
