Derbyshire self-catering holiday cottages
Looking to rent a cottage for a self-catering holiday in Derbyshire?
When people tell you that they are going on holiday to Derbyshire, the chances are that they will be visiting the Peak District National Park – a natural asset of extreme beauty that covers acres of moor, woodland, hill and dale and that they will be staying in one of the many stone holiday cottages that make up Derbyshire’s towns and villages.
There is a huge choice of holiday accommodation in the Peak District, we concentrate on self-catered cottages and houses where guests have an entire property to themselves. This can be a little luxury when booking a small one bedroom or two bedroomed cottage but becomes better value with larger houses, especially those that have enough bedrooms to sleep a big group of people. The larger properties also tend to have extra facilities such as a games room, hot tub, mini gym, tennis court, sauna or swimming pool.
This Midlands county offers considerable appeal for weekend breaks, rural breaks and outdoor holidays. The county of Derbyshire is sandwiched between the Midlands counties of Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire. It begins a little north of Birmingham, sweeps past Nottingham on its east side and almost encounters Sheffield to the north east. Its western flank skirts Manchester and Macclesfield. These areas of high population find Derbyshire conveniently close for weekend breaks in the country. Most people associate Derbyshire with the Peak District national park and considering the populous towns and cities around it partly accounts for the popularity of visitors who come to hike, cycle and enjoy its tourist locations.

The recent threat of a dam bursting in Whaley Bridge, near Buxton, has attracted a number of tourists who now come to stare at the fractured dam and enjoy the western side of the national park. All of these visitors need accommodation which is wonderful for anyone who owns a holiday home in Derbyshire.
Short term accommodation in Derbyshire
The truth of the matter is that there is a demand for short-term rental accommodation in all parts of Derbyshire and not just the Peak District because people travel for all sorts of purposes, for family functions such as weddings and funerals, for business and job interviews. Holiday rentals come in all sizes from one bedroom cottages, two-bedroom up to large houses. The demand for really large properties rented for weekend breaks is surprisingly high, however, they offer a place to stay for stag and hen celebrations and any events where a group of people needs accommodation.
Hen and Stag weekends in Derbyshire tend to be based around the city of Derby and larger towns that offer clubs, pubs and eateries for the revellers.
