Derbyshire's honeypot villages are mainly found hidden among the dramatic dales and lakes of the Peak District. Why not try a day walking or cycling on the Monsal Trail? The many traditional village pubs in nearby Bakewell are the perfect place to relax after an active day. Just a short drive from the national park are pretty Matlock and the old Roman town of Chesterfield.
Look on a map at the Derbyshire Dales District and you'll see an area entirely covered by green. Deep, forest greens show the wooded valleys and crags of the Peak District, before mellowing into the smooth mint greens of rolling countryside. The wealth of natural beauty in this part of Derbyshire makes it a perfect place for a rural retreat. What's more, nestled within these hills and valleys are an abundance of characterful market towns, meandering hiking trails and magnificent stately homes.
