Derbyshire and the Peak District is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK. Even in the world! Pretty villages, rambling rivers and majestic mountains all make up this stunning landscape.

 

For those who enjoy being out and about in the great outdoors, you will struggle to beat the beauty of the Peak District. Spend a relaxing holiday there and you can get away from it all and return home rejuvenated by nature.

 

The best way to experience the Peak District is by walking – so what are you waiting for? Pack your walking boots and walking maps and head for Derbyshire. Here are some of the best walks in the area…

 

Bakewell – yes, the home of the famous Bakewell tart – is your starting point as you walk the route through some pretty woods and the little village of Edensor before arriving at the famous Chatsworth House, the jewel in Derbyshire’s crown.

Kinder Scout – If you are up for a challenge, the walk to Kinder Scout takes in some of the most beautiful views and a waterfall as you head for the summit – the highest point in the whole Peak District – where you will be able to take in all the beautiful landscape beneath you.

Castleton – Start in Castleton and make your way along the ridge where you will see beautiful views and wildlife aplenty as you head towards Mam Tor – also known as the shivering mountain. On your way back the route takes you past some traditional local pubs where you can stop for a hearty dinner and some local beer!
