Derbyshire is a wonderful place to spend February half term, with beautiful hikes, cycle trails and hills to climb. From Shiningford you can walk or cycle around the stunning Carsington Reservoir. Dovedale and the Tissington Trail are just a short drive from all of our venues, offering walks for all abilities and warm cafes to welcome you in along the way!

The famous Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide match is on the 25th-26th February, and is a brilliant spectacle, even if you don't take part in the game. The roads close for the Up'Ards and Down'Ards to compete in the "medieval football" match, starting at 2pm on each day.
