Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in Derbyshire your home away from home

Derbyshire is a wonderfully varied county right in the heart of England. The countryside is littered with magnificent national parks, encompassing some of the most spectacular scenery of the English mainland. From the vibrant towns and cities to the open countryside and numerous golf courses, Derbyshire is a magnificent place to take a holiday cottage, disappear for a week and really relax, fill yourself with hearty food in a range of Derbyshire public houses and just enjoy the best of the English countryside.

Things to do on holiday in Derbyshire

Although there are a huge number of national parks in Derbyshire, the most loved is actually England’s oldest; the Peak District National Park which can be found between Manchester and Sheffield. There is extensive country in which to relax, whether you decide to enjoy the land on foot, bicycle or horse back. The Peak District National Park actually lies across a handful of counties, but the lion’s share of its caves, rivers, hills and valleys fall within the boundaries of Derbyshire. There are many miles of footpaths, and enough Derbyshire public houses to refresh walkers to continue on their way! Birdwatchers will already know much about the Derbyshire Dales, as they are a hugely important asset for European bird life.

Those taking a Derbyshire holiday cottage for walking, cycling, fishing or bird watching holidays cannot fail to be delighted. There is so much countryside of such variety that Derbyshire accommodation in one village can be completely different to Derbyshire accommodation just a few miles down the road. There are some fantastic restaurants in Derbyshire, but if you really want to eat well, try catching your supper in one of the fish rich rivers which transverse the county and cooking them in your own kitchen in a Derbyshire cottage.

Across Derbyshire, golf courses appear in numbers, many of which are open to the public to just turn up and play. If you are heading to Derbyshire for a golf holiday, it may be worth finding out if the local courses are all open to the public before taking a specific Derbyshire holiday cottage.

Places to visit on holiday in Derbyshire

The city of Derby is England’s youngest city, being awarded its status as a city as late as 1977. Derby, the starting point of the Industrial Revolution, is a historical gem, yet is a hugely contemporary city. There are a huge range of chops, restaurants and performances, in locations ranging from the Derby Arboretum to the Derby Playhouse.

Weather in Derbyshire

Due to its central location, Derbyshire is one of the driest places in England. Temperatures are similar to the rest of the country, with winter weather being fairly unpredictable and summer temperatures averaging around 19°C.

Cheap flights to Derbyshire

Reaching a Derbyshire holiday cottage could not be any easier. Located right in the centre of the country, it doesn’t matter where home is, there will be a quick and easy route from home to your Derbyshire accommodation. The East Midlands Airport (EMA) is located within the county, and there are a number of Derbyshire car hire firms working from the airport.

                                            I couldn't agree with Carl more, all 9 of us thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend and we would have loved to have stayed longer. A big thank you to Margaret & Graham for their brilliant hospitality. Phil S

                                            Spotlessly clean on arrival, photos accurately show the rooms. Beds very comfortable. Highly recommend this apartment.
