The Heart of England/Peak District

The Peak District offers some of England’s most wild and beautiful scenery, and is one of the country’s most treasured National Parks. Holiday cottages make good bases for walking or cycling holidays to explore the delights of Buxton, Castleton, Bakewell and Eyam. There are quaint pubs and teahouses to be found in this area, with local beers making the perfect end to a day’s walking.


Holloway was the home of Florence Nightingale and family and is steeped in history of ‘The Lady with the Lamp’. The High Peak Trail, a popular walk, also begins less than one mile away from The Old Mill & Cottage. This 17 miles (27 km) High Peak Trail is now a national route of the National Cycle Network and popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

The Heights of Abraham cable car ride, Gullivers Kingdom, Arkwright Mills and Crich National Tramway Museum are all minutes away, whilst Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Carsington Water and Alton Towers are all within easy travelling distance. There is also a handful of charismatic pubs a stroll away, offering an excellent choice of food and drink. Explore by foot, bicycle or car and take in some of the most astonishing sights and charms the Peak District has to offer.

"Beautiful house in a great location, with a charming host"

The Old Mill is a lovely, characterful building, with adequate amenities for a large group to cater for themselves and enjoy a comfortable holiday. The location, just outside Matlock and on the edge of the Peak District, is perfect for a casual walking holiday. We got on well with the owner, who was attentive to our needs, but also discrete, and generally very friendly. (The adjacent "Cottage" is a perfect addition for a large group, providing additional space for anyone who wants a bit of peace and quiet.)
