AUTUMN AT HADDON HALL - ONE OF ENGLAND'S BEST PRESERVED MEDIEVAL HOUSES
BAKEWELL - CAPITAL OF THE PEAK PARK
GULLIVERS KINGDOM PARK MATLOCK BATH
There's so much to see, do and enjoy in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales & Peak District National Park...
The small village of Two Dales, complete with pub, lies between the popular towns of Matlock and Bakewell, capital town of the UK's oldest national park, the Peak District. Close to Chatsworth House, awarded the title of UK's finest Stately Home by the Times in a recent poll, all five cottages are well-placed for a holiday in the Derbyshire Dales which adjoins the Peak Park itself.
Whether you intend to enjoy lots of walking or perhaps lots of doing absolutely nothing (!) you have the choice of these options and everything in between too. Fancy Sunday lunch on a steam train? You've got it, just 5 minutes up the road. How about an afternoon in England's finest Medieval House followed by sumptuous Bakewell Pudding in Bakewell? No problem, that's all within easy reach.
Matlock Bath or 'Derbyshire-on-Sea', as some choose to call it, is a mecca for motorcyclists at weekends and the range of fish and chip shops, amusement arcades and other entertainment will keep the family happy for hours. If that's not your cup of tea, you can choose to expore the famous Peak District gritstone edges where rock climbing routes abound for climbers of all skill-levels.
