Places to stay in The Peak District

Spread out over six counties, the Peak District has long been a firm favourite with anyone who loves the great outdoors. Its diverse mix of landscapes and extensive network of public footpaths make it a favourite destination with hikers, while gritstone outcrops like Stanage Edge and The Roaches provide a worthy challenge for even the most seasoned of rock climbers.

The many charming towns and villages of the Peak District are another good reason to visit, and spa towns like Buxton and Matlock Bath have been drawing tourists for centuries. Lovers of folk history will find plenty of interesting tales amongst the ancient settlements and mediaeval castles.
