The Peak District is one of the most special places in Britain. The jagged tors, rolling meadows, and unbridled nature evokes a sense of Britain’s ancient past…that is, until a passing paraglider brings you right back to the 21st century again.
Cottages with pools in the Peak District offer unparalleled access to the natural beauty of the National Park, and its many activities. The area is most famous for its walking tours, and these well-worn routes which take in some of the most spectacular sights in Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Yorkshire. A network of caves and caverns forms an eerie labyrinth underneath the park, including Titan Cave at Castleton, the highest natural cavern in the UK. Guided tours are available for brave adventurers!
If you like to combine exercise and culture, follow the nine-mile path to Eyam, where you will discover a 17th century plague village on a hilltop – Britain’s answer to Machu Picchu! Or if you really fancy a challenge, the world-famous Pennine Way route traverses the Peak District – join the long-distance hikers from Edale to Kinder Downfall and see all the highlights of the local scenery in just a few hours. After a long day of trekking, there is nothing better than returning to a cottage with a swimming pool where you can cool off, relax and watch the sun set over the trees.
Holiday cottages with pools bring a little touch of luxury to Peak District holidays which even the hardiest hiker will appreciate! Rural cottages also offer the freedom to go off the beaten track and discover all the nooks and crannies of the Peak District in your own time, whether you are there for the stunning view tops, the ancient woodland, or the living history.
When you are staying at a cottage with a private pool, the national park will feel like your own private garden, which you can explore at your own leisure.
