Home to Chatsworth House and the Peak District National Park and 'if you must' Alton Towers, and housing part of the National Forest, Derbyshire is a perfect location for a family holiday. Superb for walkers, cyclist, climbers, and canoeist. Also the wonderful Crich Tramway village.
Self-catering cottage holidays in the UK and Ireland can still be a green option. You can have the comforts of home and the flexibility to do what you want; when you want - without the hassles of air travel!
