Cottage Holidays in Carsington, Derbyshire, England

The small and scenic village of Carsington is well located for exploring the Peak District National Park on holiday as it takes less than 10 minutes to get there by car.

The countryside is well worth exploring and you can easily spend many hours doing just that thanks to the many picturesque trails.


Information on Cottage Holidays in Carsington

There are a variety of things to do if you book a holiday rental for a few days in Carsington. Within walking distance of the village is Carsington Water, a large reservoir that also happens to be a popular tourist attraction because of the large number of activities that are available here. Some of the many exciting water sports you can practise include paddlesports, windsurfing, sailing, rowing and canoeing - if you've never tried any of these before, don’t worry because you can book lessons at the Carsington Water Visitor Centre. If you prefer to stay on dry land, you can hire a bike and cycle a lap or two of the reservoir, go for a gentle horse ride or spend some time birdwatching. Close by is the bustling market town of Wirksworth and the pretty village of Brassington, which is known for its many limestone houses.

If you’re looking to stay in a country cottage but want easy access to lots of activities, Carsington is definitely a place to consider. There’s a lot of fun to be had on and around Carsington Water and there’s plenty to see in the village of Carsington itself. Though it may be quite popular with visitors from all over, it still maintains its relaxed character and slower pace of life.

Book a Carsington cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Derbyshire on holiday.
