Designated a National Park in 1951, the Peak District is an upland area in middle-England, boasting wide history, scenic vistas and wonderful seclusion, whilst remaining very accessible. The Peak District’s location has contributed to its popularity. Close to Birmingham, Manchester and Sheffield; the Peak District offers a great destination, whether for a weekend or longer, and is a perfect site for our luxury cottages.
Famous for the incredible walking trails which traverse the highlands; the Peak District offers every type of scenery from mountainous hills, rolling pasture or beautiful lakesides. One of the UK’s most-walked trails begins in the Peak District – The Pennine Way begins in Edale, stretching up the backbone of England, all the way to Scotland.
The Peak District seems to have a magical place in the hearts of the English. From Beatrix Potter to Wordsworth and Jane Eyre, the Peak District is the setting for many English treasures.
