Find cottages in DerbyshireVisit Derbyshire

Derbyshire provides for the most perfect cottage holiday break, with a contrasting landscape that includes the rugged open moorland found in the High Peak to the picture postcard villages set amongst the pretty vales and winding rivers to the south.

The region is dominated by the magnificent Peak District National Park; a playground for walkers, cyclists, naturalists and those seeking the simple pleasures of an outstandingly beautiful part of the UK. In fact Derbyshire has been attracting visitors for decades, with its convenient location, bordering no less than five adjacent counties and of course its abundance of natural assets.

Derbyshire's varied landscape is perhaps its most notable feature, so it stands to reason that it's perfect for all sorts of different breaks. If you're after an active holiday you'll be spoilt for choice, with fantastic cycling trails, country walks and climbing spots. Pets and their owners will be in heaven too with all that open countryside and unspoilt scenery to explore. Despite its proximity to the urban conurbations a cottage holiday in the Peak District will transport you to rural bliss!

The county has a large collection of excellent visitor attractions and a rich cultural and historical pedigree, including the renowned Chatsworth House home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The House is set amongst 100 acres of magnificent grounds, with miles of walks and floral displays. Inside you'll find a wonderful collection of rare treasures, antiques and paintings.

If you'd like to further explore historic Derbyshire then visit Bolsover Castle and Sudbury Hall; both combine wonderful architecture, great locations and stunning views to make for a great way for visitors to pass the time.

Families will love scaling the Heights of Abraham and is one of the best ways to gain an appreciation of the region's beauty from its cable cars! Drop by Buxton with its unique charm and wonderful Opera House and don't miss Solomon's Temple and Poole's Cavern.

If you're ready to begin your exploration then take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Derbyshire.

‘‘...imbued with noble history...set in a dramatic and varied landscape...’’

Take a beautiful Peak District National Park setting, just 3½ miles from Bakewell, add a historic hall (first recorded in the Domesday Book), and an ancient cluster of listed buildings converted to form superb holiday cottage accommodation....and the result is the captivating blend that is Harthill Hall. Nestling in 14 acres of grounds on an upland called Priest’s Hill with excellent walking available from the doorstep, the properties have the use of an extensive range of leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, solarium and treatment rooms. Noble names have woven the threads of the hall’s long history including Henry de Ferrers, the Cokaynes and the Harthills. Henry VIII is also believed to have stayed at the hall.
It was here in 1259 that Sir Richard de Hartle was issued a Papal Bull by Pope Alexander II, allowing him to appoint his own chaplain. The chapel ceased its functions as a place of worship in 1546 and now takes the form of The Chapel and Hartle Cottage. The eight cottages are furnished with antiques and surround a medieval cobbled courtyard. They all retain a wealth of original features including thick stone walls, large oak beams, mullion windows and flagstone floors.

Boasting a varied and beautiful landscape, they offer a blend of heritage, history and family attractions.

Park Hall Manor Ref: RVV2

This Grade II listed manor house is set within 14 acres of natural grounds, together with the occupied adjoining servants’ wing, and has been sympathetically converted, retaining many original features to provide comfortable accommodation for families wishing to meet up for that special family occasion, and wi-fi is available in the living room.
Perfectly situated just off the main road between Glossop and Chapel-en-le-Frith, the pretty hamlet of Little Hayfield provides an ideal base for walking or touring all the Peak District has to offer. In the village, Tony Warren created the television series Coronation Street and the village is now home to the annual Hayfield sheepdog trials and country show which takes place in September each year. Situated just 1 mile from the charming village of Hayfield in the narrow valley of the River Sett, it is surrounded by some of the wildest hills in the Dark Peak, a popular base for exploring the Sett Valley Trail and walking on Kinder Scout. For many years Kinder was barred to walkers, being preserved as a grouse moor until interrupted in 1932 by the famous Kinder Scout Mass Trespass! There are excellent walks literally from the door and a good variety of traditional pubs within walking distance. Close by and just a short drive away are the caverns around Castleton, the plague village of Eyam, the popular walking village of Edale and the attractive village of Hope.
For guests who enjoy visiting stately homes and gardens, there are several notable places to visit in the area. Just 3½ miles from Bakewell, the spectacular Chatsworth House is set in extensive parkland with a backdrop of wooded, rocky hills leading to heather moorland. The house itself contains a collection of paintings, furniture, old master drawings, neoclassical sculpture, books and other artefacts. It was built in the 17th century by the first duke of Devonshire and has been in the family ever since. Both the house and grounds (redesigned by Capability Brown) are open to the public and they make for a memorable day out. The small estate village of Edensor is also worth a visit; it was remodelled by the sixth duke for his employees.
Impressive Haddon Hall is another stately home to visit. Originally dating from the 12th century, it is a fortified medieval manor house which has featured in many films and TV programmes, including the BBC’s 2006 production of Jane Eyre and the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice. It has a fine collection of English, Flemish and French tapestries. A visit to the stately homes in the area would not be complete without seeing Lyme Hall in Disley - a fine, Italianate house which featured as the home of Mr D’Arcy in the BBC’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
The towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Glossop and Holmfirth (setting for Last of the Summer Wine) are all an easy drive, as is Manchester with its excellent shopping. Shops 1½ miles, pub ¼ mile.

This property is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, come and experience the spectacular scenery for yourself and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends.

Lea Hall Ref: RSS7

Lea Hall is a Grade II* listed 17th and 18th-century manor house sleeping 20 guests in 10 en-suite bedrooms. The holiday property has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is set in the heart of rural Derbyshire. Located within the village of Lea, it has been sympathetically and stylishly refurbished by the owner, and extras such as fine toiletries and bathrobes are also provided. The drawing room with crystal chandelier, open fire, flatscreen TV and soft furnishings is the perfect setting in which to relax. The dining-room is set in the older part of the hall, which dates back to the 1600s, and has a wood-burning stove and seating for 20.
The parish of Dethick, Lea and Holloway is steeped in history and Lea is recorded in the Domesday Book as Lede; the notorious Babington Plot of 1586 was planned at Dethick and Florence Nightingale spent much of her early life at Lea Hurst (and almost certainly lived at Lea Hall while that house was being built). The peaceful village of Lea offers visitors friendly pubs, tea rooms, restaurants and the famous John Smedley factory. Rural Derbyshire is a real treasure trove offering everything for the visitor including country houses, historic halls, medieval ruins, heritage railways, cycleways, beautiful unspoilt countryside and pretty villages. One of the closest attractions to Lea Hall is the Heights of Abraham. Built on the site of historic lead mining, the hilltop park is approached by cable car which rises up and offers some spectacular views of the Derwent Valley and surrounding Peak District. Visitors can tour the network of caverns and passageways left behind and explore the 60 acres of woodland hillside and buy souvenirs at the gift shop. Alternatively, for those who appreciate stately homes and gardens, magnificent Chatsworth House (3½ miles from Bakewell) is highly recommended, as well as Haddon Hall and Lyme Park, all of which have been film or TV locations over the years. Shop 1 mile.
