Welcome to our tourist information web site for the Peak District of the UK. If you want information about Derbyshire’s Peak District or are seeking to rent bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation in a hotel, guest house or farmhouse, or if you prefer to rent a self-catering holiday cottage, this site should be of interest to you. In fact, all things Peak District are here (almost!). OK we are not the biggest Peak District site, but at least all of our pages have meaningful content … The Peak District is mainly in Derbyshire but extends into surrounding counties.
