Places to stay in Peak District

The Peak District National Park sits primarily in northern Derbyshire, but straddles boundary lines with many other adjoining counties. Anything you could want from a UK adventure holiday is on hand in the park, including walking and cycling routes, rivers for gorge walking, caves for exploring, rocks for climbing and lakes for all manner of watersports.

This range of activities, coupled with convenient road access from some of Britain's primary motorways, means that more than ten million people visit the Peak District for a holiday or short break every year.
