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. There 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. 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 Peak District holiday cottages. 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. A Peak District doesn't have to be about walking the hills. For other active holiday options, consider booking a luxury Peak District holiday cottage with a pool or games room. Trips to some of the beautiful Peak District villages such as Ashford in the Water (known as the Peak District Venice), Whaley Bridge, Fritchley and Castleton 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 Peak District 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 cottages scattered all over the area, such as the impressive Winster Hall in Winster or Haddon Grove Farm cottages neat Bakewell, or for a more remote location, try Losehill Cottage in Castleton.
