The Peak District

This is an area of great natural beauty with rugged, peat-covered moorlands and magnificent limestone dales, with picturesque towns and villages, historic churches and some grand houses. It is the location of Britain's first National Park - the Peak District National Park, which is the the world's second most visited National Park. The Peak District is located in the central northern part of England, covering parts of the counties of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and South Yorkshire.

Peak District Holiday Cottages

The Peak District is a wonderful place to visit, whether it be just for a day or for a long holiday. There is so much to see, and plenty of accommodation. We recommend the local Peak District holiday cottages, of which we have a wide range listed on the site, including all types - from quaint sixteenth century cottages with mullioned windows to log cabins, and we have recently developed a new specialised holiday cottage website, Great Peak District Cottages.

Peak District Hotels, Bed and Breakfast & Guest Houses

If you prefer Peak District Bed and Breakfast accommodation then this is the place to look - we also have a great range of Peak District Hotels, Pubs and Inns.

Peak District Caravan and Camp Sites

If you are one of the hardier types or just like the freedom to roam, then we have a long list of Peak District camp sites, spread right cross the whole region.

Peak District Tourist Attractions

The Peak District has numerous interesting and exciting tourist attractions, from great houses to caverns and stem railways.

Probably the biggest single attraction is Chatsworth House - a magnificent house set in a landscaped park which is the home of the Dukes of Devonshire - but there are many other great houses, such as Haddon Hall, Lyme Hall and Hardwick Hall - built by Bess of Hardwick, one of the most powerful women of the Elizabethan era - and many others. See our 'Great Houses' page for information about these.

There are numerous museums in the area - ranging from formal museums like Buxton Museum, to outdoor ones such as Crich Tramway Museum. See our Museums page for a complete list.

The Peak District also has show caves at Castleton and Buxton, steam railways at Churnet Valley and Peak Rail and a cable railway at Matlock Bath, while Alton Towers - one of Britain's biggest theme parks - lies just outside the Park Boundary, within easy reach for a day trip. See our Caverns, Theme Parks and Railways page for a full list

Peak District History

If you are interested in history then the Peak District has many places of interest. These range from the Stone Circles at Arbor Low and Stanton Moor, through the hill fort at Mam Tor and the Norman Castle (Peveril Castle) at nearby Castleton through to Richard Arkwright's original cotton mill (the world's first) at Cromford. See our 'Ancient Monuments' page for more about these.

In addition, there are numerous fine churches, including Tideswell Church, known locally as 'The Cathedral of the Peak. See our 'Local Churches' page for a fuller list.

Peak District Walking, Cycling & Outdoors

The Peak District is a great place for outdoor activities and in summer and at weekends fills with walkers and cyclists. To find out more, sample our Peak District walking and and Peak District cycling routes. We also have outline information about minority sports such as rock-climbing, caving and hang-gliding.

Peak District Towns and Villages

Buxton has some lovely buildings dating from its heyday as a spa town - notably the Georgian Crescent and the Opera House. It also has a thriving music and arts festival each summer.

Bakewell was founded in Saxon Times and is the home of the Peak District National Park Authority. It is a busy market town notable for its livestock market. To the south lies Ashbourne, another market town founded by the Saxons, and the southern gateway to the Peak District.

In the north of the Peak District Glossop is a former mill town which is the gateway to the routes across the Pennines, while on the western fringes of the Peak are more mill towns - Macclesfield and Leek, which were both once centres for the manufacture of silk.

Matlock lies almost in the centre of the region and was once a spa, and is now the county town of Derbyshire. Not far away, Wirksworth is an ancient Saxon market town which was once the centre of the local lead mining industry, which has left it with narrow winding streets and rows of quaint miners' cottages.
