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.
