Ideas & Inspiration
When we are looking for holiday ideas we all need some inspiration. So whether you’re seeking wide open spaces and wonderful views, country comfort or city chic, action packed adventure or a fun day out for all the family – the Peak District and Derbyshire is the place for you.
Nowhere else in the UK will you find such a wide variety of stunning landscapes, first –class places to stay and visit, a wealth of things to see and do and quality venues to eat and drink in such a compact and accessible area – right at the heart of the country.
Take a hike in the hills or enjoy a woodland stroll, inspired by the special landscapes of the Peak District National Park. Love exploring historic houses? Don’t miss the splendid Chatsworth, medieval Haddon Hall or one of the several superb National Trust or English Heritage properties in the area. Step back in time at the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site to experience the area’s rich natural and industrial history. If outdoor activities are your thing you’ll be spoilt for choice, with miles of cycle trails and walking routes, and activity providers who will be happy to help with rock climbing, caving, horse riding, airsports and watersports. See the sights and hit the shops in attractive market towns; feast on fine local produce or catch up on culture at a bijou theatre, deluxe cinema or arts festival.
