There is no better place than the Derbyshire Peak District to enjoy a short break or a family holiday.
Our award winning lodge holiday park is set in beautiful surroundings and is an ideal location from which to explore this fantastic area which is ideally located in the Heart of England.
The Peak District National Park is home to breathtaking views with an abundance of walks and cycling trails just waiting to be explored. Add to this a vast array of attractions including stately homes, theme parks, family attractions and natural wonders such as caverns and dales and you and your family will be sure to enjoy a fantastic holiday in the Peak District.
The Peak District has miles of picturesque footpaths to explore with routes to suit all ages and abilities. The more energetic can enjoy hiking in the Dark Peak and enjoy spectacular views from Kinder Scout or Stanage Edge. For the less active or for those with children there are many charming walks along trails and more suitable paths, with equally spectacular views of some of the country’s most magnificent landscapes. There is also an abundance of walks around the parks. Landal Darwin Forest is adjacent to a woodland walk and Forestry Commission woodland and Landal Sandybrook is minutes from Dovedale, which is one of the most loved areas of the Peak District.
The Peak District has 65 miles of off road cycling trails and an abundance of scenic quiet lanes. The area also includes many challenging roads with the Tour of Britain having passed through the Peak District. We have cycles for hire at Landal Darwin Forest or you can hire them at Hassop Station and cycle the Monsal Trail. The Tissington Trail and cycle hire centre is close to Landal Sandybrook making it an ideal base for exploring the miles of former railway lines that traverse the delightful Derbyshire countryside.
For the More Adventurous
For experienced mountain bikers looking for a new challenge, the area has plenty of mountain bike trails waiting to be conquered. The Peak District also has some of the most challenging rock climbing routes in Europe including Stanage Edge and the Roaches. You may also want to take to the water with fishing, sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking all available on the rivers and reservoirs in the area. There are also outdoor pursuits and clay shooting available locally which is great for groups of friends to enjoy together.
