Planning a short break in the Peak District?  Our National Trust guide to days out in the Peak District can help!

  • The White Peak Estate including Ilam Park and Dovedale has some beautiful walking areas, such as the stepping stones shown in the picture above. For the adventurous there's a 10-mile circular walk taking in the Estate with limestone caves, (the stepping stones) and spectacular scenery.  Our holiday cottage Valley View offers immediate access to this area, so is ideal for exploring The White Peak Estate.  
  • Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood.  The late seventeenth century Hall has many highlights including a Gainsborough of Lady Vernon, a 1930s kitchen, an amazing long gallery, great staircase, carvings in the dining room and some stunning ceiling paintings. And if you are a Jane Austin fan walk in the steps of Mr Darcy, as Sudbury Hall was used for the 1996 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.  The Museum of Childhood reopens in February half-term where you can visit a Victorian school and museum.
  • Eyam House and Craft Centre. A Jacobean Manor with a walled garden, two kitchens, family portraits of the Wright family lived in by 11 generations.  There's a craft centre in the stable yard with local crafspeople and special gifts including Eyam Real Ale, Hartington Cheese, recycled handcrafted wood, pre-loved books and a cafe.  A scenic walk around Eyam is also a must do. 
  • Lyme Park, House and Garden. Step back into the Regency era and the life of Thomas Leigh of Lyme, a great traveller, romantic hero and entrepeneur.  The house is glorious and the gardens are well worth visiting with stunning views and an ancient deer herd.
