Peak District Hotel in Derbyshire

The Peak District and Derbyshire offers a world of contrasting natural beauty, with moors and dales, rivers, spas and caverns, enjoyed by many tourists every year for its spectacular views and tranquility as well as a myriad of things to do whatever the weather. Home to the the market towns of Chesterfield, Buxton as well as Matlock, Ashbourne and Bakewell; pretty villages such as Ashover, Crich and Eyam; historic houses namely Chatsworth, Haddon, Hardwick, Renishaw and Bolsover Castle; family fun attractions from Gullivers, Heights of Abraham to the world famous Alton Towers; if it’s a bit of shopping you are looking for then try out the Peak Shopping Village in Rowsley, McArthur Glen Designer Outlet in South Normanton or Sheffield’s Meadowhall for some serious retail therapy!

Furthermore, the National Park is one of the UK’s most popular walking and rambling destinations. There is something for everyone, from challenging hill walks to simple leisurely circular walks.

Cycling has come to the fore in the last few years and there are cycling routes to suit all the family in the Peak District. If you haven’t cycled for a few years, then go for cycle hire on a fun and easy route. If you’re after a challenge and feel the need for speed and an adrenaline rush plump for a more challenging mountain bike route.

If it’s a short break or a week long break then spoil yourself, stay over and relax in one of Derbyshire’s highest rated AA 4 star, a stones throw from the Peaks.
