Take a Peak District Christmas or New Year break. Chatsworth House will be dressed for the season and the Garden has a 12 days of Christmas Trail. Do some Christmas shopping at one of the Christmas markets. Take a bracing walk in the countryside. Relax and get into that Christmas spirit.
If you’d love to get away for a mini break before Christmas, then consider a break in Byre or Hayloft Cottages. Our cottages have underfloor heating, log burning stoves for added atmosphere and are cosy all day long.
Christmas and New Year 2020
We currently have availability in either cottage for Christmas 2020 but not New Year. Both also have plenty of availability for breaks before Christmas.
You can start your break on any day that you like, our breaks are flexible. Our minimum stay is 2 nights (except over Christmas itself). Come and stay to make the most of all the seasonal events that the Peak District and Derbyshire have to offer.
We decorate the cottages from early December to get you into that Christmassy spirit.
Things to do in late November & December
Very sadly, many events have been cancelled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We hope that you will still find enough to do, however, to have a nice break away.
