Derbyshire is one of the most picturesque counties in the whole of the UK. Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park we have a duo of exclusive retreats to choose in peaceful rural locations close to cosy country pubs, and award-winning restaurants you’ll find right on the doorstep.
Here is a list of our accommodation available to date:
Due to their special location our rural accommodation is ideal for enjoying excellent walking holidays with easy access to the network of footpaths that connect the small villages and hamlets that can be found throughout the Peak District countryside.
Town & Country
The bustling town of Matlock is just eight miles away and Ashbourne is 5 miles away for a wider range of shops and other amenities. Carsington Water can be reached by car, or easily by foot. Its Watersports Centre offers many outdoor pursuits such as sailing, boating, windsurfing and cycling. There is also a restaurant, shops and an adventure playground for children of all ages.
Local attractions such as Alton Towers, Matlock Farm Park, Dovedale. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Sudbury Hall and Kedleston Hall are also a short drive away.
Cycle the Dales
Cyclists can enjoy quiet country roads while exploring the area, and there are plenty of opportunities to go off-road too. There are an abundance of easily accessible cycle routes. The Tissington Trail is just up the road and provides traffic free road all the way to the High Peak Trail in the Buxton area.
Part of the joy of choosing luxury holiday accommodation with Rustic Retreats is the ability to bring your beloved pet along with you (a small charge will apply). Both you and your canine companion can enjoy a comfortable, relaxing break in the heart of the British countryside. Enjoy countless walks then curl up in a cosy firelit pub and feel your troubles drift away.
So now you can choose your own rural retreat in Derbyshire that truly is away from it all to ensure you come back from your holiday thoroughly refreshed and ready to take on anything!
