Quality Self Catering in the Heart of the Peak District
Steeped in history and with a fascinating cultural heritage, the Peak District and Derbyshire is packed with things to see and do – from the World Heritage site of the Derwent Valley and bustling market towns to picturesque villages, palatial country mansions and the stunning landscapes of Britain’s first National Park.
Discover how the other half lived in magnificent stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Hardwick Hall or the medieval Haddon Hall all surrounded by enchanting gardens, delve into the area’s rich industrial heritage at the Silk Mill – Derby’s Museum of Industry and History and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution or visit Heage Windmill, the only working stone towered, multi-sailed windmill in the country.
Take a trip down memory lane at Crich Tramway Village, step even further back in time with a trip to the English Heritage-owned Bolsover Castle where you can see a medieval joust or watch skilled combat displays by battling knights, or experience the exhilarating white knuckle rides of Alton Towers, Britain’s biggest theme park.
Explore the streets, sights and shops of towns such as Ashbourne, Matlock Bath, Chesterfield and Buxton, with its beautiful Opera House and renowned as the site of pure, volcanic mineral water since Roman times – and if you’re the green-fingered type, you’ll love the region’s excellent range of gardens, from the formality of stately home parks to small, specialist gardens.
We suggest that you visit the many dedicated websites on the Peak District ahead of your stay to look at the things to do and places to see that take your fancy. We are more than happy to make recommendations upon your arrival if you like.
