peak district holiday cottages, lodges & parks - derbyshire

The East Midlands is my neck of the woods so Peak District holiday cottages are never far away from us for a lovely short break with my family whatever the time of year. This region covers the counties of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire - if you are looking for Lincolnshire, then please go to the East of England page..
Whether it's adventure and action at Alton Towers, rock climbing on the stunning cliffs and crags, getting dirty on a mountain bike which can be hired locally, private family cycling on Tissington Trail or just a good long walk around Dovedale, the Manifold trail, to name but a few, it's all here in the Derbyshire and Staffordshire Peak District. Or maybe you're after a more relaxing time, a stroll around the excellent Blackbrook Zoological or why not go and visit the magnificent Chatsworth House with its adventure playground or browse around the market towns of Leek with all it's antique shops and warehouses, Ashbourne, Buxton & Bakewell. Take a trip down memory lane on the Churnet Valley Steam Railway or visit the place that inspired Rudyard Kipling's parents.
For the thrill seekers on holiday in the Peak District there is Gullivers Kingdom Theme Park (under 14s) in Matlock, Heights of Abraham Caves with cable cars and play parks, Waterworld at Stoke, Go Ape hire wire tree climbing (10+ years) or of course, the popular theme park of Alton Towers.
