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 2019
Hayloft Cottage is now booked for Christmas 2019, however, Byre Cottage is still available. Both have plenty of availability for breaks before Christmas.
Start days for the rest of the month are totally flexible and our minimum stay is 2 nights, however, so 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 with Christmas decorations from early December to get you into that Christmassy spirit.
