Peak District: family holidays and dog friendly hotels
Taking in the southern end of the Pennines, Derbyshire, parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Staffordshire and Yorkshire, the Peak District and its National Park offer breathtaking views and opportunities to enjoy cycling, walking and wildlife watching in a uniquely beautiful part of the country.
Brimming with history and activities, the Peak District is a family friendly holiday destination with outdoor pursuits for all ages and plenty of space for the family dog to roam as well. Marked trails for cycling and hiking, peppered with villages in which to stop and refuel, are all parts of the experience. Locally sourced food and drink add to the enjoyment, and amongst it all, the hotels in the area have their own particular brand of rustic charm to add to the getaway. The beauty of the Peak District has also attracted wedding parties since time immemorial.
The Cavendish at Baslow for example lies in the grounds of the magnificent Chatsworth Estate, owned by the Duke of Devonshire. It is a heady mix of beautiful views and home baked scones, welcoming you with traditional warmth and faultless details. Equally, walkers are joyful at the sight of Underleigh House, a B&B in the heart of the National Park, where adventurers can rest their heads and watch the nuthatches and woodpeckers who visit the nearby feeders. For history and literature fans, few things can beat a night at The George Hotel, where Charlotte Bronte is said to have written much of Jane Eyre in the village vicarage.
