The vast majority of the Peak District National Park can be found in Derbyshire, meaning it’s the perfect place to base a Peak District holiday. With our fantastic choice of holiday cottages in Derbyshire, you can stay right in the heart of this wonderful region. Walkers will simply love the variety of treks on offer here, including the classic Great Ridge Walk, which looks out onto deep valleys on both sides and scales the 600m-high Mam Tor, also known as the ‘Shivering Mountain’. Other locations such as the High Peak and the Derbyshire Dales are also must-dos for a hiking holiday. April and May is one of the best times of year for walkers to visit, as they will be treated to more than a hundred themed events and walks which make up the Peak District Walking Festival.
For those seeking something a little different, there’s a host of unique experiences to be had in Derbyshire, from journeying through the spectacular underground caves at Castleton to taking in the grandeur of Chatsworth House, which played a starring role in Pride and Prejudice.
After a day exploring the countryside, there’s plenty of quaint villages and market towns to retire to for a spot of shopping or an evening in a pub; Chesterfield and Edale are just two excellent examples. While Derby itself lies outside of the boundaries of the National Park, it still makes for an excellent day trip, if only to scale the 189 steps to the top of the city’s towering cathedral. For a quieter day, head to the small village of Foolow.
