There's plenty going on this Easter in the Peak District.  We've put together a guide of a few of our selected highlights for families young and old.  So why not pop over to the Peak District this Easter and join in the fun?

  • There's Easter holiday fun at Calke Abbey. The Cadbury egg hunt in the meadow runs daily from 14-16 April 11 am to 3.30 pm. Pick up a map and follow the clues to the treasure at the end!  There are also nature-themed activities and lovely walks to enjoy for all the family. 
  • Why not climb the towers of St Mary's and All Saints Churches in Chesterfield?  You'll get stunning views of the Crooked Spire and the town.  The tour lasts about 40 mins and do book in advance. 
  • Loads of family fun at Conkers indoor and outdoor play and adventure in a national forest.  From 1 to 23 April there are various activities and events including a circus, Punch and Judy, sublime science, juggling, craft and ranger activities and and an Easter egg challenge.  
  • At the Tropical Butterfly, Wildlife and Falconery Centre from 1 to 23 April there's an Easter Mad about Madagasgar theme.  You can meet species close up, take part in an Easter Egg hunt (Easter Sunday and Monday), enjoy tractor trailor rides and there are Easter bunnies and chicks to meet.   

These are just a few of the Easter events going on for families in the Peak District.  We've picked a few that offer something a little bit different.  We hope that you enjoy them!  Happy Easter holidays!

Are you a dog owner planning your next holiday or short break?  Don't leave your best friend at home or pay for expensive kennels!

 

We love having dogs come to stay at our holiday cottages, and we welcome up to five well-behaved dogs at any one time. 

 

Our four-legged visitors love the walks from the doors of the cottages, along the river Dove, and walking on the traffic free Monsal Trail are just a couple of the highlights.  Others include safe and secure gardens with outdoor space, log fires with limitless logs for a cosy sleep after a long walk and lots of local pubs and attractions that are dog friendly.

 

Some of our favourites include the Crich Tramway Museum, which allows dogs on the site and in the trams and there are lovely walks such as the Woodland walk. 

 

Or Peveril Castle above the village of Castleton gives stunning views and you and your dog will appreciate visiting this National Trust property as part of the daily dog walk (it is a bit steep!).  Castleton also has dog friendly pubs for much needed refreshments afterwards.

 

How about Chatsworth House, which is great for an outdoors visit with your dog?  Dogs are allowed in the gardens, sculpture areas, maze, waterworks areas and there are dog posts just outside the farm area and restaurant.  Assistance dogs are allowed in the house. 

 

Some of our favourite dog friendly pubs include The Red Lion at Litton (a lovely town with a village green) and The Church Inn at Chelmorton.  And newer additions to the dog friendly pub scene are The Old Dog at Thorpe and with new owners The Angler's Rest in Miller's Dale. All these pubs are ideal for using as a base for walking in the Peak District. Take a look at our dog friendly pub guide for more information.

 

Our holiday cottages in the Peak District will take up to five dogs so if there is a group of you we won't restrict you to one well behaved dog only as many other holiday cottages will do. 

 

We take our own dog on holiday with us to the Peak District, so we want you to enjoy your holiday with your dog too!

If you are thinking of booking a large holiday cottage, here are some key tips when making an enquiry  – from a cottage owner’s point of view. Some may seem obvious, but there’s no such thing as a silly question when you’re planning your holiday!

1. Don't forget to include the dates that you are interested in on the enquiry email.  You’d be surprised how often people forget!  If you have a range of dates, give them in order of preference.  If you are flexible with your dates mention that too.

2. Do put down the numbers of adults and children in your group (and their ages). It really helps, as holiday cottage owners will know immediately if the cottage is the right size and suitable for the group.

3. Let the holiday cottage owner know the reason for your visit. e.g. family holiday, group reunion, walking holiday. At Visit Peaks we don't accept stag or hen parties (sorry) but it would be really helpful to know if that is the purpose of the visit, as we often recommend other holiday cottages in the area that do!

4. Mention if you have pets, what kind, and how many.  We do accept dogs (as well as cats, rabbits, gerbils and budgies!), but it never ceases to amaze me that people forget to mention that they want to bring their four-legged friends with them on holiday.  Many holiday cottages don't allow pets, so it is a crucial piece of information!

5. Ask for the price and if there are any hidden costs.  Are you surprised that this isn't tip number one?  Often it is not the key deciding factor in choosing a holiday cottage.

6. Hoping for a discount? Don't ask for 'the best price' (all our prices are good for the size of the accommodation and facilities, of course!) Instead ask if there are any offers on the website at the moment, or ask if there is a newsletter when reductions may be advertised.  Don't expect discounts for busy periods or weekends. If you can be flexible and stay mid-week that is the best time to get a discounted price.  

7. Feel free to ask as many questions about the facilities as you like.  If you are travelling with young children for example, you’ll want to know if there are high chairs, stair gates, fire guards etc. Or if you are with a group of friends, you may want to know about the TV package, wi fi, available board games, etc.  If the number of bathrooms/ensuites is important to your group do ask, it might not be obvious from the holiday cottage details, so check it out.  As holiday cottage owners we love to talk about our facilities!

8. Ask about the area, what is there to do locally and further afield.  We love to tell you about this and we have plenty of insider knowledge to share.

9. Do ask about eating out too.  We visit lots of the local pubs and cafes and are always happy to pass on recommendations.  This is especially true for large groups as we can tell you which pubs are large enough to fit you all in, how far away they are, the standard of the food, beer, wine, whether dog friendly and plenty more!

10. If you are planning a special birthday or anniversary, ask how we can help.  We know caterers and spa services that can be booked at the holiday cottages.

I’ve saved my two “bonus tips” for the end, because they’re the ones people often forget…

11. Don’t forget to ask about mobile phone reception.  You don't want to be disappointed (especially with a rural holiday cottage) if the area doesn't have signal.  Although for some people that is a bonus!  

12. You may also want to ask about wi fi speeds.  Our holiday cottage in Litton Mill has wi fi, but it doesn't have the fastest of download speeds, so it is something that you will need to know.  It isn't a deal breaker, but it is better to be forewarned!

Large self catering holiday cottages are ideal for family celebrations, special birthdays, anniversaries, reunions and groups of friends to holiday together. 

 

When you book a large holiday cottage rental, you want to be sure that it is right for you and the group. 

 

As holiday cottage owners we stay in our self catering cottages and use them with friends as our guests do.  That way we know what is needed to create the perfect self catering holiday cottage break.

 

We check the cupboards to make sure that there are plenty of glasses, so if you want to toast a special birthday or anniversary there's at least one glass each with spares. 

 

We supply enough plates, bowls, mugs so that you can have a dishwasher load on with another whole set available for you to use. 

 

There's plenty of information about the area, the walks, the pubs, restaurants, places to visit.   We can recommend places too for larger groups for dining out for special occasions and pub lunches.   We have contacts with a visiting spa and catering service for those really special group breaks.

 

For families and adults alike there are games galore, board games for all ages, table football, multi-games table, and at Riverside House a fully equipped games room including table tennis.  Wi fi is available at both cottages.

 

Both our holiday cottages have Sky Sports, BT Sports, Sky movies so there's never a chance to get bored, not matter what your interests. 

 

And if the weather does turn inclement we provide an unlimited and free supply of logs and kindling so that you can keep dry and warm with a cosy glow. 

 

We will be visiting again soon and making sure everything is in place for your group holiday cottage rental.  Let us know what things you'd like to see included to make the self catering break special?

The best advertising that your holiday cottage can get is direct from your guests.  Testimonials are an excellent way of finding out what is working (or not) and happy guests are more often than not guests that will return again! 

Our guests are often happy to provide testimonials and allow us to use them on our websites and other advertising sites too.  Here's some of the most recent.

Riverside House holiday cottage

"The birthday surprise went really well and we had a lovely stay at Riverside House.  The location and house are beautiful (my husband said Riverside House would be his dream home).  We sampled the food at the Red Lion which was excellent as you said.  The only disappointment was not being able to stay longer".

This is from a guest who has just stayed in early January 2017.

Valley View holiday cottage

"We just wanted to say that we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cottage in Milldale.  The area is beautiful and the cottage had everything we could possibly need and made our stay so easy.  I am sure we will stay again and I have already recommended you to a friend".

This is from a guest who stayed in December 2016.

So holiday cottage owners, don't forget to ask for testimonials, use them in marketing materials, on your website and social media.  Also use your guests comments to find out what they think about your holiday cottages and immediately address anything that wasn't up to stratch.  Guests will appreciate you getting back to them with how you have resolved things.   

Use the opportunity to carry on a conversation with your guests after they have stayed.  Try and keep it chatty and gently suggest if they would like to come again or recommend a friend.  Use this opportunity to keep your holiday cottage in their mind for the future.

It's the best marketing that you have!

There are many reasons why holiday cottage owners should stay in their own self catering accommodation.

Unless you actually stay somewhere, sleep there, use the oven, turn on the TV, sit on the sofa, load the dishwasher it is impossible to know what it is really like from the guests point of view. 

What works?  What is uncomfortable?  Can you see things differently when sitting down?  Maybe an odd cobweb or two has escaped your view?  Are there cracked plates, chipped glasses, does the diswasher clean properly? Are the pillows comfortable or the duvets warm enough? 

We stay in our holiday cottages for at least two or three mid-week nights about every six to eight weeks, sometimes with friends or family, sometimes on our own and sometimes with our dog.  Each time it's a different experience and each time we find little things that we wouldn't pick up otherwise. 

Some of the jobs that we seem to do everytime we stay include: removing chipped glasses, plates, bowls and mugs, sharpening knives, putting back loose pages into the information folder, removing out of date information leaflets, replacing light bulbs, tidying the spare duvets and pillows, deleting recorded programmes from the Sky box and mending board games boxes.  All these jobs are small, but when you stay somewhere they are the annoying little things that make an impression. 

Unless you stay a night or two in your own holiday cottage, you just won't pick up on all of these things or more.   It is the attention to detail that shows that you really care.  You can only find out exactly what needs attention if you stay in the holiday cottage yourself.

A different blog today.  I love using Twitter and social media to promote my holiday cottages so I thought I'd post a few tips I've learnt along the way.  Mainly this time using the hashtag (#) on Twitter.

  • Use the # symbol to categorize your tweets so that users can simply find you in these areas e.g. #holidaycottage #selfcatering #holidaycheer #familytravel #staycation or #bookdirect - these are some of my favourites, but there's plenty of others
  • Don't try and put too many #s in your tweet though it looks a bit cluttered and off-putting I think!
  • Do use topical #s in your tweets, so how about using #christmassy or #christmaslights to tweet about your holiday cottage Christmas decorations?
  • Try adding stickers to your tweets - it's fun and engaging. Tap to compose your tweet, tap camera and then tap sticker icon and have fun!  Then add a # that's relevant to the stickers.  #dogs #dogfriendly are some of the ones I use with stickers of dogs and paw prints.  Works well for dog friendly holiday cottages!

Direct contact with the holiday cottage owner has got to be the best way for potential guests to find out if the holiday cottage is right for them and their group.

That's why Visit Peaks is happy to support #BookDirect on Twitter and would prefer to speak directly to our customers.

Large booking websites, such as Owners Direct and Holiday Lettings take away that personal touch.  It's even worse on Owners Direct as potential customers have to pay direct through their website and will incur the additional Owners Direct administration fee.

At Visit Peaks we want to spread the holiday cheer and help our customers make up their own minds about our cottages by speaking to us direct.  We can help with accommodation size, things to do in the area, local pubs or restaurants, suitability for children, advice on arrival, parking and many other things that are important.  You only get this when you Book Direct!

So Book Direct and search out the friendly independent holiday cottage owners!

There's an autumn chill in the air and the nights are drawing in.  But there's still plenty to love on a holiday cottage break away. 

At both our holiday cottages, Riverside House and Valley View we have lovely log fires and what's more we provide an unlimited free supply of logs.  You can snuggle up to the log fire at any time of the day or evening!  After a long walk in the Peak District countryside there's nothing more welcoming than a warming log fire.  

At Riverside house holiday cottage we also have underfloor heating in the kitchen and dining room, so you'd be even more warm and toasty! Both holiday cottages have been insulated too so although large they won't feel chilly. 

If you are free to holiday outside of the school terms why not take a look at our mid-week deals for November and December and grab a cosy autumn bargain at our holiday cottages?

There's mid-week breaks at both Riverside House and Valley View holiday cottages, sleeping from 9 to 15 in four to six bedrooms.  At only £699 or £799 for four nights that's great value.  And don't forgot the logs for the log fire are completely free!
