Peak District

Somersal cottages are within easy reach of the Peak district which is full of places to visit and activities to try.

For the active there are numerous walks, some more strenuous than others but all with beautiful scenery. Or if you prefer biking the bikes can be hired to meander along the various trails, maybe with a stop off for a pub lunch. For people who prefer water based activities there is Carsington water.

For the less sporty there are numerous pretty towns such as Buxton and Bakewell with a variety of shops. You can also go underground at the famous Blue John caverns or ride high in a cable car to the top of the Heights of Abraham.

In this area you will also find the beautiful Chatsworth House, a day out here has something for everyone. It isnt just a house and the wonderful Capability Brown landscape, theres a farmyard and adventure playground for the younger members of the family and a shops and places to eat.

The Chatsworth estate hosts a huge variety of events throughout the year, from art and sculpture exhibitions, guided walks, food fairs and show gardens, to International Horse eventing, running and outdoor theatre. They also have a country fair in September. There really is something for everyone.
