The Peak District is a place of open country, dales and moorland dotted with stately homes including Chatsworth House, featured in Pride and Prejudice.
Three of the very best stately homes in the country sit in the very heart of Britain's first national park, Chatsworth the home of the Dukes of Devonshire, arguably one of the most popular in the country and Haddon Hall, the historic Tudor seat of the Dukes of Rutland. You may recognise it as the location for films like Jane Eyre. You will also find our very own Hopton Hall and it's beautiful Snowdrop and summer gardens.
For cycling enthusiasts there is bike hire at Hassop Station. Historic Bakewell, the capital of the Peaks, with Monday markets, the Old House Museum and of course the famous Bakewell Pudding is always worth a visit.
For foodies the selection is immense, from a Michelin Restaurant, to upmarket bistro, quaint village pubs and cosy tearooms.
During the summer months each village has its Well Dressing Festival and of course, most importantly the countryside around is glorious.
