Self-catering holiday cottage accommodation in the Peak District, Derbyshire

cottages in the Peak district for self catering holidays

Book a cottage in the Peak District, farmhouse, log cabin, country cottage or house for a fabulous holiday or short break out in the dales. To most people, the Peak District means Derbyshire.  However, the hills and dales of the first of Britain's National Parks extends into the surrounding counties of Yorkshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire.  The Peak District is divided in to two areas, the White Peak and the Dark Peak.  Ask visitors what the Peak District looks like and they will describe rough hillsides with rocky outcrops where sheep wander at will, dry stone walls, tumbling brooks, lakes, reservoirs, waterfalls, and caves - some of which are large enough to sail a boat through.  Stone is the star performer in the Peak District - in white limestone, grit and shale. It graces the landscape and buildings.
