As the days get warmer and the evenings get longer it's a great time to get out and about.  If the Peak District is on your list of places to visit we've got a few events and festivals picked out for you during May and June. 

Tideswell Food Festival Sat 5th May, Bank Holiday weekend

With over 50 foodie stalls and many locally produced items, why not pop into Tideswell and sample some goodies.  The local pubs, shops and cafes will all be taking part.  And new this year is a Makers Market based around the stunning Tideswell Cathedral in the Peak (shown in the picture).  With over 20 craft stalls there's sure to be something to take your fancy. 

Devonshire Dome, Buxton, gin event, Sat 5th May, Bank Holiday weekend (afternoon and evening sessions)

The Gin Society Festival returns to the Dome in Buxton, where over 120 gins are available to try.  The gin stations are divided in British, World, Fruit and Cocktail bars and there's a Prosecco bar too.  Over 18s only.

Derbyshire Open Arts, Spring Bank Holiday weekend, 26 May to 3 June

For the 12th year this is a great chance to enjoy the arts and crafts of the county at selected venues, some off the beaten track.  Meet the artists and maybe take something special home?

RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, Wednesday 6 to Sunday 10 June (10-6.30 Wed to Sat and 10-5 Sun)

In the grounds of Chatsworth House, the RHS returns for a second year.  Highlights include the Great Conservatory full of orchids, a living labratory and a river of flowers (a mass planting of Cosmos).  Plenty of shopping opportunities too!

Eroica Britannia, weekend of 15 - 17 June

A festival of the heritage of cycling with cycle rides on the Sunday over a choice of distances.  Bikes and gear must be pre-1987 only.  Or enjoy the festival itself with music, entertainment, shopping, food and drink and camping.  

Let's hope that there's something here for you and your family to enjoy.  For some events tickets and registration are available in advance, for others simply turn up and enjoy.

There's nothing better than trying local produce and supporting local shops and producers when staying in and visiting an area.

During your self-catering stay in the Peak District that's hopefully what you will want to do to. 

Cooking with friends and family is great fun when you have time and lovely fully-equipped holiday cottage kitchens.  So here's our choice of two Peak District foodie shops, each one ideally located for access to either of our holiday cottages. 

Tindalls of Tideswell (handy for Riverside House holiday cottage)

Some of the foodie delights to try include a homemade pork pie or a steak and ale or turkey and ham pie, as well as a traditional Fidgety pie made with apples, onions, potatoes and bacon.  It was originally produced in Derbyshire to use up apples during harvest time.  Tindalls have some authentic Derbyshire cakes and biscuits, such as Thar Cakes, Wakes Cakes and a Tidza pud (their take on the Bakewell pudding), all ideal dessert options for self-catering.  Tindalls has a great range of homemade jams, chutneys, pickles, bread, rolls, local made yoghurt as well as a selection of cheeses, olives and pates.  We think your holiday cottage group will all find something to devour here!

The Village Stores Hartington (ideal for Valley View holiday cottage)

This local Peak District shop really does have everything.  Where to start?  Perhaps a fresh coffee while you decide - it really is delicious!  The shelves are full of local jams, pickles, fresh coffee from the Buxton roastery (already mentioned, but truly wonderful), pies, Bakewell pudding as well as plenty of storecupboard ingredients, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat, cheeses, milk and even traditional sweets.   One of our favourite isles is the selection of beers from Thornbridge Brewery with names such as Tizara, Chiron, AM:PM, Jaipur (our personal fav) and Wild Swan.  We suggesting pairing them with food!  And Jaipur is sometimes available in kegs for the very thirsty!

One of the great pleasures of visiting the countryside is enjoying the great outdoors and fresh air.  It's even more fun if you are with your family and your dog too.  Dog walks and family walks are a great way to get together and spend some quality time.

We've put together three suggested walks in the Peak District, which are ideal for all family members and your four-legged family too!

One of our favourites is the traffic free Monsal Trail with 8 miles of traffic free walking with tunnels, views (Monsal Head viaduct), cafes, pubs and heritage information on the route.  If you need a pit stop the dog friendly Stable Bar at The Monsal Head is ideal, with views to die for too.  Bike hire is available at Hassop Station, with plenty of parking, a cafe, book shop and gift shop.  Lovely outdoor tables and chairs too.

Then there’s the delightful Dovedale with its famous stepping stones across the river Dove, idyllic picnic spots, caves and wooden bridges to explore.  All traffic free but some parts of the walk dogs need to be on a lead, especially in lambing season.

And finally the Tissington Trail another traffic free gem with probably one of our favourite pubs just off the Trail.  The clues in the name, The Old Dog, 100% dog friendly with open fires, sheepskin throws and a modern twist on heritage architecture as a theme.  The burgers are pretty amazing too!

It’s never too late to start a new hobby or get fit.  Even for the less active hiring an electric bike in the Peak District National Park is a great way to enjoy the countryside.

On the traffic free Monsal Trail you can have a great day out.  From Hassop Station on the Monsal Trail you can hire electric bikes (book in advance) and the pedal assist makes for effortless cruising. My husband and I enjoyed setting the speed and level of assistance on the bikes which are easy to use and ideally suited to leisure users.

The bikes have an upright position offering the most comfort for cycling and even come with a handy basket to carry your essentials for the trip.  They are heavier than a conventional bike because of the battery but you can start in gear and with power assistance and once going they feel lighter and easy to pedal.

There is plenty of parking at Hassop Station plus once you have enjoyed a power assisted cycle the Hassop Station Café serves a delicious range of homemade food including locally sourced produce. There’s even a sun terrace, covered outdoor area, bookshop and gift area.

So if you want a silver biking day out in some glorious traffic free countryside why not try hiring an electric bike in the Peak District?

We often get groups of friends and families celebrating special birthdays or anniversaries at our holiday cottages.  Well there's nothing quite like a special afternoon tea as a way to celebrate a special event.  We've chosen three places that would make a great afternoon tea celebration. 

Biggin Hall - a lovely historical house dating from the seventeenth century.  There's a stunning restaurant, serving lunch and dinner and most ingredients are sourced from the Peak District.  Afternoon tea is served daily from 3-5 pm either in the dining room or if the weather allows in the garden. 

Newton House tea rooms - local quality produce is sourced and with it's location a stones throw from the Tissington Trail this is an ideal spot for Afternoon Tea.  Options include a tradtional afternoon tea for £25 for two, deluxe afternoon tea £35 for two, as well as vegetarian afternoon tea and a chocolate indulgence afternoon tea. 

Herberts tearooms - formerly The Old Coach House, located in the heart of Tissington Village this is a lovely setting.  Vintage crockery and a quirky decor with breakfast, lunch and cream teas all served.  Tissington is a lovely village to explore with a duck pond, shops and walks including the Tissington Trail.

There's always plenty to do in the Peak District during February half term.  Here are our top picks for all the family.

  • Medieval Mayhem and Bolsolver Castle - take a trip in time and test your skills and fun in medieval games.  Open 19-23 Feb 11 - 3. The castle is also worth a visit to soak up the Age of Chivelry.  There's a fairytale little castle, atmospheric ruined terrace and interesting Venus Gardens. 
  • Matlock Farm Park - On Sat 15 and Sun 16 February there's a reptiles event featuring bearded dragons, geckos, a tarantula and Lucy the seven foot boa constrictor!  Bring cameras for photo opportunities.  There's so much more to do at Matlock Farm Park, with lots of animals to visit, horse riding, trails, play areas and a cafe.  
  • Arkwrights Cromford Mills - visit the Derwent Mills World Heritage site where there is something for everyone.  Interactive films with a Sir Richard Arkwright hologram, the world's first successful water powered cotton mill, narrowboat rides along the canal, walks, trails, galleries, shops and places to eat. 

There's plenty of other things to see and do in the Peak District this half term including Gulliver's Kingdom, Poole's Cavern and Country Park, Heights of Abraham and Chatsworth Farm and Adventure playground.  Have fun!

One of the delights of visiting the Peak District is to enjoy walks centered around visiting pubs.  There are many pubs to choose from in the Peak District and both the holiday cottages, Valley View and Riverside House, are within easy walk or drive to some great pubs. 

During our recent visit to the Peak District in January 2018 we visited some old favourites and reconnected with past haunts.  Here's our shortlist.

The George, Alstonfield

The new owners are delightful, friendly and welcoming.  They are keeping the tradition of excellent food, wine and beer going and are happy to welcome bookings from larger groups staying at Valley View holiday cottage.  There is a room to the side of the bar that can be booked along with a large stand alone room across the courtyard.  

The Devonshire Arms, Hartington

There's always a friendly welcome here from the cheerful landlord.  We visited the walker's bar with our dog but there is also a larger dining room available.  The pub food is of a consistently good standard and the beer is always well liked by the beer drinkers in our group.  

The Church Inn, Chelmorton

Another favourite of ours and ideal for guests staying at Riverside House holiday cottage.  Dogs are welcome in the bar area, the landlord is welcoming and the food is varied and good.  The rabbit pie special went down particularly well.  

The Old Gate Inn, Brassington

It's been over 10 years since we paid this pub a visit and we regret not going back sooner.  A roaring log fire, great beer and excellent food and service makes this pub well worth a visit.  Dogs are welcome too.  

Of course there are plenty of other lovely pubs to visit in the Peak District, and we can advise you when staying with us at our holiday cottages.  We've visited quite a few (all in a days work) so do ask us!

Running a holiday cottage business is great fun, especially when you get to stay in your own holiday cottages and enjoy the walks, scenery and relaxing in front of the log fire.

However, sometimes there are plenty of jobs to be done and last week was no exception.  We stayed at Riverside House holiday cottage for a week and certainly got a lot ticked off.

Here's some of tasks we acheived:

  • Annual boiler service
  • Annual chimney sweep
  • Fixing some snooker cues and table football in the games room
  • Getting a brand new TV, free sat box and satellite dish for the games room
  • Meeting up with lovely new caterers and sampling their food
  • Meeting Sauced Here a local delivery company where food and provisions are from the Peak District
  • Getting the oven cleaned and given a once over
  • Having a new mattress delivered for the downstairs double bedroom
  • Replacing some older pillows with new ones
  • Giving the utility room and washing machine a spring clean
  • Replacing an extractor fan in the ensuite bathroom

It's very satisfying to know that Riverside House is ship shape and ready for the Christmas and New Year guests.  We stay in our holiday cottages on a regular basis and this is one of the things that makes us different from other holiday cottage owners.  We know how many mugs, glasses, knives, forks are in the kitchen; we know if a light bulb needs replacing or if a door knob is loose.  We know if the pillows and mattresses are comfy and how warm the house feels on a winters day.  We experience our holiday cottages in the same way as our guests do, and we wouldn't want it any other way.

If you are looking for a short break or longer holiday cottage stay in 2018 do get in touch and book direct with owners who know their holiday cottages inside and out!

Another blog I know about the Asbourne food market, but it really is becoming a highlight of the Ashbourne and southern Peak District area. 

The next market is on 25 November 2017 and will coincide with the switching on of Ashbourne's Christmas lights. The market stalls will include scrumptious foodie delights, seasonal gifts, handcrafted items all from artisans in the area.  There are vintage dealers and hot street food sellers too as well as local musicians. 

The market is located in the Market Place very central in Ashbourne and there are plenty of car parks in Ashbourne too. Don't miss 8 Dec (the twilight market) and 9 and 10 Dec (the Christmas markets).

Here's our very own Conor, enjoying a holiday in the Peak District at one of our holiday cottages. (The cottage in the picture is Valley View with stunning views over Dovedale). 

Many holiday cottages will only accept one or two dogs at the most.  That's where we are different from the rest.

You know your dogs and pets deserve a holiday as much as you do and that's why our large self catering cottages accept up to five dogs at any one time.  So if you are on holiday with family members and friends you can all bring your four-legged friends along too.

There are walks galore from the holiday cottages.  At Valley View enjoy walks along the river Dove or the nearby Tissington Trail and at our other cottage, Riverside House, there's the river Wye and Monsal Trail right on the doorstep.

And just like you, your dogs will love snuggling up to our cosy log fires.  We don't stint on logs either, when you book with us you get an unlimited free supply of logs and kindling to use during your stay.  

If you'd like more information on taking your dog on holiday with you, or details about our short break prices for 2018, get in touch now!

Autumn is here, the leaves on the trees are looking beautiful and the Peak District is gearing up for Halloween.

Here are our top choices for things to do this Halloween in the Peak District.

  • Chatsworth House has spooky goings on in the garden, farmyard and playground.  Why not join in the half-term fun activities?  There's a trail of pumpkins, spooky stories or let the little ones weave a spiders web or even become zombies! 
  • Chesterfield Ghost Tours running on 5, 12, 19 and 26 October.  Thursdays starting at 7.30 pm.  Take a tour round the historic streets of Chesterfield and discover a ghostly past, murders and more!  Booking essential.
  •  Alton Towers Scarefest on the following dates: 7-8, 14-15, 20-31 October. The theme park stays open until 9 pm on these dates so you can experience the rides in the dark.  There's scary mazes and a freak show too.  
  • Matlock Farm Park has some Halloween activities from 23 - 31 October.  Try out pumpkin carving, go on a treasure hunt or a spooky guided tour featuring the headless horesman and Wanda the Witch.  

So it's time to get out and about in the Peak District for half-term and Halloween this October.

This a fun-filled family event not to be missed.  Every Saturday and Sunday from 9 September to 28 October 2017 a parade of illuminated and decorated boats will sparkle along the River Derwent.  Boats are decorated with coloured lights mounted on rowing boats.  The event starts at 7.45 pm on Saturdays and 7.30 pm on Sundays in the Derwent Gardens

Every Saturday evening there are firework displays from 9 pm in the Gardens.  Sundays are aimed at families and start and finish earlier with no fireworks.  That's the best day to take your four-legged friends, as whilst well-behaved dogs are welcome on leads, our advice is to avoid the fireworks on Saturday night if you are taking dogs with you.

Our advice is to get to Matlock Bath early, as particularly on Saturdays it can get very busy and parking can be an issue. 

Prices for the illuminations and fireworks for Saturdays are £5.50 in advance and £7.50 on the door for adults with under 16s free, and on Sundays £4.50 in advance and £6.50 on the door.

The whole event takes place in Derwent Gardens, which are well worth visiting during the day.  These gardens overlook the River Derwent and there are thermal springs, water gardens, pools, grottos, alcoves and footpaths.

Tideswell in the Peak District National Park is one of our favourite towns for a morning or afternoon visit and stroll.  It is home to the Cathedral in the Peak, (shown in the picture above) which is worth a visit, but it also has some great foodie delights.  

Some of favourite cafes are High Nelly's, The Peak District Parlour and the recently acquired The Woodman (previously Vanilla Kitchen).  

We have had one of our best breakfasts in High Nelly's with Derbyshire oatcake, free range eggs and local bacon.  A friendly and warm welcome and plenty of space for groups.  Dogs are welcome but on tables outside only.

The Woodman is run by H&D Exoctic Teas and you won't be disappointed.  Home baked cakes are paired with speciality teas; all with timers to get the perfect brew.  There is a bistro menu as well as tapas, Thai, Caribbean and on Thursdays takeaway curry.  We sampled the tapas and teas and we would highly recommend.  Dogs are welcome.

The Peak District Parlour is another great breakfast spot or perhaps for Sunday lunch.  There's also a deli section with cheeses and a good choice of deli items.  Light lunches, daily specials, fresh baked bread and home made ice cream all available.  This is a good dog friendly cafe too.  

Don't miss out a visit to Tindalls of Tideswell famous for their pies, homemade bread, chutneys, cakes and much more!

Finally for a lunch or dinner we recommend The Merchant's Yard, which have also reviewed in our earlier blog.  Great food, craft ale and wine.   

Riverside House holiday cottage our large holiday cottage is only a 40 minute walk away from Tideswell along the lovely Tideswell Dale or by car in just over 5 minutes.  There's plenty of parking on the main road.  For more information contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
