Our family-friendly accommodation is perfect for a summer getaway, with a whole host of activities in Derbyshire and the Peak District. We have compiled a suggested itinerary for your stay, which keeps the whole family entertained and allows you to see the best of the local area.

 

Day 1

Check in at 4pm

Go for dinner in a local, family-friendly pub. The Red Lion is within walking distance of Standlow, and The Miners Arms is under a mile from Shiningford.

Toast marshmallows around the fire pits at Standlow Farm, or relax for the rest of the evening in the hot tubs at Shiningford.

Day 2

For theme-park lovers, Alton Towers is a must! Smaller children can explore CBeebies Land; and for anyone who isn’t a fan of rides, try out the water park or crazy golf.

Stop at Ashbourne on your way back through for a walk around the pretty market town, with numerous cafes and restaurants. It is also a chance to stock up the fridge, being where you will find the closest supermarkets to Standlow Farm.

 

Day 3

Visit Chatsworth House and Gardens. There is something for everyone, with a brilliant play area and a fantastic farm shop. Children aged 6-11 can even help out in caring for the farmyard animals on Wednesdays throughout August, from 1.30pm-5.30pm.

If you have time, stop in at nearby Bakewell for a chance to taste the original Bakewell Tart!

 

Day 4

Stay closer to home for a relaxing day at Carsington Water, where you can walk or hire bikes to cycle around the beautiful reservoir. The visitor centre has an educational section for kids, a restaurant, cafe and a few shops. There is also a large children’s play area and the option to take on a water sport.

The market town of Wirksworth is just a couple of miles away, and a great spot for dinner or to see a film at the independent cinema.

 

Day 5

Make the most of the facilities before you check-out at 10am. Have a dip in the pool at Shiningford, or play in the games room if you are staying at Standlow Farm. If you need more time, why not extend your stay to a full week?
