Self-catered breaks of a high standard in Derbyshire
When people mention that they are going on holiday to Derbyshire, they usually mean that they plan to stay or spend much of their time in the Peak District national park. The national park is spread across several Midlands counties but the great part lies within Derbyshire. Acres of farmland, moor and hillside create stunning vistas. Imagine it as an adventure playground for all ages with good scenery and enjoyable outdoor activities and you get some idea of why people keep coming. A popular type of holiday accommodation is a self-catered cottage, or house for larger groups of holidaymakers. The cottages vary in size and there is literally something for everyone; for dogs owning couples, families with two or three children, for extended families and hiking clubs.
Stone-built houses predominate in the national park. The modern properties are built in a style reminiscent of the original stone houses and farm cottages. One of the most attractive types of holiday homes to rent in Derbyshire is a barn conversion, they look beautiful both outside and within. The charm of the original stone cottage is retained and incorporated with luxurious flooring, fitted kitchens and bathrooms. These are holiday homes that tend to be at the expensive end of the market but such a joy to stay in.
Of course there is so much more to the selection of a holiday home in the Peak District, you may have someone with you who has a mobility problem and therefore parking adjacent to the house takes foremost importance. Families might rank a garden as one of their top features so that the children have somewhere safe to play when not out and about in the national park.
We can assure you that each and every one of the Derbyshire holiday homes featured is of a good quality, sound and comfortable. Self-catered holidays in Derbyshire are accommodation only – you bring your own supplies, or buy as you need them locally. It is an excellent excuse to discover more about the Midlands.
