The Peak District National Park
The Peak District, we feel, probably offers the greatest variety of activities which can appeal to a mixed level group with a cross section of abilities.
It is always a surprise to us that so much variety exists in such a relatively small area and is so near to so many places. The Peak District is your own natural 'theme park' not to be forgotten about for your own short break or weekend away from the inner city bustle.
Walking in Derbyshire
From the easy walks around the reservoirs of the Dark Peak, to the higher level walks upon Kinder Scout and Mam Tor ('the Quivering Mountain'), to the first class climbing on Stanage Edge, the Dark Peak is an outdoor lovers paradise for short breaks and weekend activities.
Further South, the White Peak also offers easily accessible walking for everyone. Come find the hidden dales of south Derbyshire, running from Monsall Head near Bakewell through Millers Dale to and onto Buxton. An awe inspiring short break away, doing activities you would enjoy.
Further excitement can be found walking the Roaches, with amazing views over the White Peak and Ashbourne.
Mountain biking in Derbyshire
As well as walking, guided mountain biking can be offered to all levels of experience, whether it's converted railway tracks, more challenging rides off the beaten track or technical trails for the more adventurous, there is an adventure for everyone.
Your short break or weekend away in the Peak district could include a mix of both guided walking or biking, whatever your ability and is within in easy access of most UK cities.
