Whatever the occasion we have an incredible Big Cottage for you
From the heart of Staffordshire to the rolling hills of Yorkshire and the edge of Lancashire, the beautiful Peak District is known and loved by many for its idyllic views and picturesque villages. With bustling market towns, historic houses and acres of stunning scenery, the Peak District is the ideal destination for a relaxing getaway.
Whether you’re travelling with friends and family, kate & tom’s have a huge range of luxury holiday cottages in the heart of the Peak District. Hot Tub, tennis courts, games rooms and so much more, we have everything you need for an unforgettable escape in the Peak District.
For many, a trip to the Peak District simply wouldn’t be complete without a walk or two in the beautiful rolling hills. Take a stroll through the countryside, and a venture through the past with a day out at Kinder Scout. Back in 1932, around 500 walkers from the nearby city of Manchester took to the hills and walked the 8 mile route from Hayfield to Kinder Scout to protest the restricted access of the Peak District countryside. Walk in their footsteps and take in the beautiful views that the protesters fought so hard for.
Ladybower Reservoir is another must-see nature spot when visiting the Peak District. The large, Y-shaped reservoir provides water for the surrounding towns and villages, not to mention a perfect summer’s day out. Walk around the stunning waters and enjoy the magnificent views or woodland and moorland. If you prefer to cycle around the countryside, the Monsal Trail is a traffic-free route through the Peak District’s impressive limestone dales. Cycle, walk or even horse ride along the 8.5-mile route, stopping for a picnic in the sun along the way.
Of course, the Peak District isn’t just idyllic scenery and rolling hills. The historic stately homes, exciting theme parks and spectacular caverns are perfect for those stereotypically wet and cold English days.
For the big kids looking for an adrenaline boost, Alton Towers is the ideal day out for the whole family. Get your heart pumping on Rita, your stomach dropping on Oblivion and your pulse racing on Nemesis. With so many rides and attractions, you may find that one day simply isn’t enough. Or, if you’re travelling with the kids, Gulliver’s Kingdom is a fun theme park for children aged 2-13. With exciting rides, an enticing dinosaur area and even a safari zone, the kids are bound to burn off some of that excess energy with a day at the park.
After the heights of Mam Tor and the lengths of Saddleworth Moors, head down into the Peak Cavern for a change of scenery. The natural cave is one of the UK’s largest guided tours, taking you down underground for a closer look at the unique rock formations. For an even more unusual trip underground, head to Speedwell Cavern, where you can hop on a boat tour of the 18th-century lead-mining cavern 450m below ground.
The Peaks are the perfect destination for a group getaway with the whole family. With so much to see, do and experience, you’ll all be able to fill your days with fun activities and idyllic relaxation. Opt for a large group cottage, big enough for a party with the whole family and reconnect with loved ones and you unwind in the most beautiful of environments.
