Derbyshire's Top Attractions for Self-Catering Holidays
The Peak District
Derbyshire is synonymous with the Peak District. Britain's oldest national park covers much of Derbyshire and is a hot spot for walkers and day trippers who trample every moors and path across the hilly terrain. The limestone rock bed underlying Derbyshire has eroded caves and left deposits on the moors. Some of these caves have been turned into tourist attractions for visitors to explore on foot or by boat. A rare fluor-spar stone called Blue John is mined in Derbyshire and made into trinkets for tourists. Much of the countryside is farmed and the fields are divided by distinctive dry stone walls which criss-cross the landscape. Sheeps are everywhere, in the fields and wander freely on the higher moorland. People flock to walk around the reservoirs and view the Lady Bower Dam. There are dedicated cycle paths and a cycle network for safe cycling.
The Peak District has been turned into a walkers and day trippers paradise with every historical exploit or tragedy turned into a tourist attraction. People can read about the heroism and horrow of the medieval Plague on plaques on cottages in Eyam, in the church and around the village. The main Derbyshire towns in the Peak District are dominated by tourism and for tourist that is a good thing. Some of the very best tea shops can be found here. Visit Buxton, Bakewell, Matlock, Castleton and many other towns for a history lesson, tradition and myth. The countryside is superb, a horde of interesting places to visit and everything laid on for tourists.
