About the owners

The Knockerdown Cottage Team

October 2020

We have a small dedicated team who live and work on site or very close by. The team has operated the site for a significant number of years and add the personal touch to every stay–there's always a happy face here. We adore the Peak District and everything it has to offer.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • 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.
