(updated 31st July)
We understand the anxieties that people are feeling about visiting the Peak District whilst we are living with the Coronavirus still in the community and wish to reassure visitors that the Peak District can be a safe place for people to come to. We have plenty of room for social distancing, particularly if you avoid the hot spots!

A request from us
Please come and enjoy yourselves in the Peak District but please be respectful of our beautiful countryside and others around you.
If you feel unwell, please stay at home.
Please park considerately – so that emergency vehicles can pass and farmers can access their fields
Be aware that most public toilets are only open during limited hours so prepare accordingly.
Come and stay! We’d love to welcome you into one of our cottages
