Holiday Cottages in The Pennines

As it is often described as the “Backbone of England” there are no prizes for guessing that the Pennines rdominate the upper central landscape of England. These limestone hills, limestone crags and montains stretch almost the length of middle England from the Scottish border at the Cheviot Hills through Cumbrian Fells, The Yorkshire Dales, the rural heart of West Yorkshire, finally ending at The Peak District in Derbyshire. Visitors will find themselves welcome at hundreds of luxury barn conversions and large and small Pennine 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.
