During this period of uncertainty surrounding Brexit, staycations are becoming increasingly popular among Brits. If you aren’t already aware of the term, a staycation is a holiday within your own home country. With no worries over exchange rates and passport control, why not explore the many beautiful locations the UK has to offer?
Being centrally located, Derbyshire is easily accessible for a family holiday or group getaway. With the Peak District on its doorstop and many major cities within a short drive, you won’t be short of stunning scenery, outdoor activities, and attractions for all ages. See our list of local attractions and nearby towns for recommendations.
Hiking, climbing and water sports are available around our venues. The Peak District is a hot spot for outdoor activities, with the Derbyshire countryside offering plenty of opportunities for cycling and walking holidays. For outdoor enthusiasts Standlow or Shiningford are perfect, with walks right from your doorstep, and water sports and cycling just 5 minutes away at Carsington Water.
A huge benefit of travelling within the same country is that your pooch doesn’t have to be left behind. Standlow, Shiningford and Ashbourne Hall are all pet-friendly, so you can book in your dogs for £20 each.
The Derbyshire countryside is a fantastic backdrop for a relaxing getaway. Most of our venues have hot tubs, so that you can soak up the fresh air and picturesque views. For the ultimate indulgence, we even offer pamper packages, so that you can have a massage in the comfort of our holiday cottages. You can see more details on our pampering here, along with catering packages that make your UK holiday stress-free.
Another advantage of not flying abroad is the ability to invite a bigger group of friends and family, even if you’re just going for the weekend. We specialise in group accommodation, with holiday rentals that sleep between 20-40 people. If you all want to be in one property, check out Ashbourne Hall or Hollywood House; or for venues that allow individual families or friend groups to have their own cottages, Standlow is the ideal location for you.
