Book the perfect Derbyshire holiday cottage

The county of Derbyshire is the very heart of the English Midlands. Spreading from the city of Derby in the south to the wild fells and green valleys of the Peak District National Park in the north, it's a patchwork ochre-hued moors and quaint country villages strewn with rose gardens and stone-built pubs. Hikers and bikers are likely to love the range of Derbyshire holiday lettings that dot the trekking tails of the nature reserves. Other travellers can discover medieval stately homes and rich local history, taste creative British fare in the gastropubs and shop in the boutiques of whimsical English towns.

Outdoor activities in Derbyshire

Because so much of the Derbyshire countryside is given over to farm fields and the vast reserves of the Peak District National Park, the county remains a real favourite for outdoors adventurers. You can discover rural, rustic Derbyshire holiday cottages that sit close to hiking paths and long-distance cycling routes. Popular walks include the Peak District section of the Pennine Way, which starts here and wriggles right through England to the Scottish borderlands. The landscapes of Derbyshire are also pockmarked with caves. That draws adventurers underground, to navigate the stalactite-splintered tunnels of Speedwell Cavern and the glittering Blue John Cavern, to name just 2.
