Self-catering holidays in the Peak District
Home to rolling hills, historic market towns like Matlock Bath, picturesque villages and one of the UK's most visited national parks, the Peak District makes for a fantastic staycation and short break for friends, family and even couples. As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there's plenty to see and do in Peak District National Park beyond its stunning views. Visit charming market towns and stately homes, visit a local pub for a warming meal, adventure along the Monsal Trail or get your heart racing by rock climbing or exploring Speedwell Cavern with our guide to Cave Exploration in the UK. But it's the Peak District's wonderful location that means you've got great access to Alton Towers, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House - all family friendly attractions ideal if you tire of the great outdoors and beautiful countryside (unlikely!)
If the Peak District national park is your main reason for visiting the area but you still want a relaxing stay, make sure to add the gentle rolling Hope Valley, the Heights of Abraham cable car or the White Peak area of the southern Peak District to your to do list. You'll still enjoy the stunning views the Peak District national park is famous for, but with much less effort! Or, for those looking for a wilder experience, head to the Dark Peak moorland of the northern Peak District. This area of heathland is characterised by its often desolate and exposed landscape, studded with fields of heather.
Our extensive range of Peak District holiday cottages includes holiday homes with modern features like underfloor heating, off road parking and unspoilt countryside views from the sitting room. We have contemporary houses with an indoor heated swimming pool and a games room, as well as cosy cottages ideal for a romantic retreat. If you're looking for family friendly self catering accommodation, a holiday home with enough room for large groups or somewhere dog friendly with an enclosed garden and unique features like a dog shower, you're in luck! Just set your requirements and you'll see just how extensive our range of Peak District cottages is.
