The Heart of England / Peak District / Peak District/Derbyshire region
Dramatic gritstone edges, wild heather moorlands and gentle limestone dales make the Peak District National Park one of Britain's best-loved landscapes so no wonder it was Britains 1st National Park. It's renowned for its pretty villages, beautiful scenery, good walkes in the hills and stately homes. The Peak District is perfect for couples or families as it has something to suit everyone whether it's a walk in the hills, caving, hangliding or just pottering.
The Castleton area
As a great place for a holiday, Castleton is unmatched even in this lovely part of the Peak District.
With stunning scenery taken as read, memorable walks from our doorstep (just around the corner into Cave Dale and you're away!), marvellous cycling (mountain bikers take note) all around, and the most notable attractions of the National Park within easy reach by car, the village is a delightful retreat at all times of year.

Just absolutely wonderful. The cottage had every appliance needed and even more. So very clean and tidy and even had hidden little extras. The owner had such insight to add little extras like flowers, pictures, ornaments etc, etc, list is endless making the cottage so homely - outrated some B&B's, as the feel in the cottage was so tranquil, an absolute delight - catering for every eventuality!
Garden just as exquisite; and so very well kept.
