Peak District and Derbyshire Self Catering Accommodation

The Peak District National Park straddles Staffordshire and Derbyshire and offers a wealth of outdoor activities for the intrepid (and more sedate) explorer. Known as 'The Peak District or 'The Derbyshire Dales this is a beautiful region in which to take a short break or longer holiday. For holiday ideas, view this splendid choice of self-catering accommodation in quaint cosy Peak District cottages. Some of these are in historic towns such as Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock, while, for a real Peak District rural escape, there are plenty of remote moorland cottages or farm cottages to choose from. Being in the Midlands, this is a great meeting point for large family gatherings or reunions. Unsurprisingly therefore, the region is nicely blessed with a wide choice of large holiday cottages. If you like walking or cycling there are miles of stunning hills, valleys, trails and cycle paths such as The Monsall Trail to explore on your own or with friends, family or just the dog (you'll find plenty of dog-friendly cottages within this Midland walkers paradise). Go underground and explore the [Peak Cavern](http://peakcavern.co.uk/ (known locally as The Devils Arse! Alternatively, to ensure you don’t miss anything, try many of the Peak District Ranger guided tours.

Enjoy a ramble with a Derbyshire Dales expert knowing you won’t get lost and have all your questions answered along the way. A Peak District cottage holiday doesn't have to be about walking the hills. From Chatsworth House and Alton Towers to the Blue John Caverns and the Heights of Abraham, the Derbyshire Dales offer a wide choice of adventurous and relaxing days out. For other active holiday options, consider booking a luxury Peak District holiday cottage with a hot tub, swimming pool or games room. Trips to some of the beautiful Peak District villages such as Ashford in the Water (known as the Peak District's Little Venice), Whaley Bridge and Fritchley are a must and a great way to enjoy all the area has to offer.

Take a trip to the market town of Bakewell in the heart of the Peak District. Like many of the market towns of the Derbyshire Dales, the variety of pubs, shops and restaurants makes this charming town a great place to visit. You can always try some of the famous Bakewell Pudding while you’re there. While Bakewell is known for its pudding (or tart), the little village of Winster is known for its pancakes, in particular its Pancake Race, which runs the length of its main street every February on Shrove Tuesday.

Near by Bakewell is the famous Spa town of Buxton, which is most famous for water, but is also well worth a visit to enjoy the old streets and pretty shops. For those interested in architecture there’s the Devonshire Dome - it’s the largest unsupported dome in Britain and is bigger than the one in St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

My Favourite Holiday Cottages has a wonderful collection of Derbyshire cottages scattered throughout The Peaks in such picturesque towns and villages as Hope Valley, Bakewell, Castletoun, Buxton, Matlock and Matlock Bath.
