For walking there can’t be many spots to rival the Peak District (and not that many can better the choice immediately available to guests in our two Orchard Farm holiday cottages).

And when you get back, whether after a two mile potter or a twenty mile marathon, there is a gorgeous bath awaiting you and- on a more practical level – you may even possibly be grateful for boot dryers and a washing machine.
