The Peak District National Park

SUNRISE ON THE GREAT RIDGE



The Peak District is the UK's oldest national park, formed in 1951. An area spanning 555 square miles it offers vast areas of moorland, rolling hills and mountains, crystal clear limestone streams, famous villages (such as Bakewell and Castleton), stately homes like Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, easy access from major cities like Manchester, Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham, Birmingham and Leeds. Check out the pretty villages like Ashford-in-the-Water and, of course, wonderful Great Longstone, close to the famous, traffic-free Monsal Trail. If you're thinking of staying in the area for a few days, we don't offer accommodation ourselves but Let's Stay has a huge directory of Peak District Cottages and other holiday accommodation on their website at https://www.letsstay.co.uk.
