Derbyshire

Derbyshire provides for the most perfect cottage holiday break, with a contrasting landscape that includes the rugged open moorland found in the High Peak to the picture postcard villages set amongst the pretty vales and winding rivers to the south.

The region is dominated by the magnificent Peak District National Park; a playground for walkers, cyclists, naturalists and those seeking the simple pleasures of an outstandingly beautiful part of the UK. In fact Derbyshire has been attracting visitors for decades, with its convenient location, bordering no less than five adjacent counties and of course its abundance of natural assets.

Derbyshire’s varied landscape is perhaps its most notable feature, so it stands to reason that it’s perfect for all sorts of different breaks. If you’re after an active holiday you’ll be spoilt for choice, with fantastic cycling trails, country walks and climbing spots. Pets and their owners will be in heaven too with all that open countryside and unspoilt scenery to explore. Despite its proximity to the urban conurbations a cottage holiday in the Peak District will transport you to rural bliss!

The county has a large collection of excellent visitor attractions and a rich cultural and historical pedigree, including the renowned Chatsworth House home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The House is set amongst 100 acres of magnificent grounds, with miles of walks and floral displays. Inside you’ll find a wonderful collection of rare treasures, antiques and paintings.

If you’d like to further explore historic Derbyshire then visit Bolsover Castle and Sudbury Hall; both combine wonderful architecture, great locations and stunning views to make for a great way for visitors to pass the time.

Families will love scaling the Heights of Abraham and is one of the best ways to gain an appreciation of the region’s beauty from its cable cars! Drop by Buxton with its unique charm and wonderful Opera House and don’t miss Solomon’s Temple and Poole’s Cavern.

    The Wee House on the Hill is a gorgeous detached cottage set in the lovely location of Wirksworth. It is an 18th-century cottage with stunning views across the rooftops, surrounding countryside and historic buildings of the bustling cosmopolitan market town. The cottage has been lovingly restored to the very highest standards to include all the modern day facilities to make a stay one to never forget. It has been thoughtfully renovated by the owners, who have put love and attention to detail into making The Wee House a real gem. With a warm inviting feel the open-plan kitchen and living area enjoys a wood-burning stove to snuggle up in front of after a day exploring, whilst the upstairs has a luxurious feel with its open, light and calming bedroom and bathroom. The area around The Wee House has the feel of a Cornish fishing village – a random patchwork of houses and gardens removed from traffic and noise. The Wee House is peaceful, quiet and has an ‘away from it all’ feel, yet it is only a short amble down the hill to the quirky boutique shops and independent eateries below. It is great for a relaxing break away or an ideal place from which to set off on adventures in the surrounding peaks; you can walk and cycle from the door.

    Wirksworth offers visitors a funky independent cinema, a weekly market and a monthly farmers’ market. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient ’jitties’ and courtyards of the Puzzle Gardens, along with the heritage centre and the delightful surrounding countryside including nearby Carsington Water, Black Rocks and the High Peak Trail. Rock climbing and cycling can be enjoyed here at every level, and there is great walking all around. Well dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and Wirksworth combines this tradition with a lively carnival, and the annual September arts festival attracts international performers of every kind. Beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath, with its spectacular cable car, the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver’s Kingdom. Only two miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is not to be missed. Shop, pub and restaurant 400 yards.
