Owner recommendations

  • Head to Wild Park Leisure for several thrilling outdoor activities including paintballing, archery and quad biking.

  • Matlock Bath is one of the country's first tourist destinations, full of character and charm, it’s worth a visit.

  • Carsington Water park is a must. Be sure to book onto some of their watersports lessons, a memorable experience for you and the kids.

  • Heights of Abraham is a hilltop park reached by cable car (very exciting!), with cavern tours, walking trails, fossil exhibitions and a lovely cafe.

  • Dovedale is a National Nature Reserve managed by the National Trust. The River Dove flows through this limestone valley and is home to the famous stepping stones. From the stepping stones it's possible to hike to the top of Thorpe Cloud with stunning vistas once you’re at the top.

  • Alton Towers is only half an hour away with its infamous roller coasters and rides. It’s a popular option for overcast or slightly grey days when queues are shorter and a hike up a cloudy hill may not appeal.
