Take a Peak District Christmas or New Year break. Visit stately homes dressed for the season and Christmas markets. 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, two of our well-equipped Peak District holiday cottages. Our cottages have underfloor heating and are cosy all day long. There are also log burning stoves for added atmosphere
Christmas and New Year 2018
Byre Cottage is available for both Christmas and New Year 2018/19. Hayloft Cottage is available for the New Year only. To allow our staff time to spend with their own families, we only accept bookings of 7 nights or more over the Christmas period. For 2018, this would be Friday 21st December or Saturday 22nd December. Our start days for the rest of the month are totally flexible, so stay to make the most of all the seasonal events that the Peak District and Derbyshire has to offer.
Other seasonal breaks
Throughout November and December, we offer stays of 3 nights or more from just £252.
We decorate the cottages with Christmas decorations from early December to get you into that Christmassy spirit.
