The diversity of the countryside landscape around the Derbyshire Peak District offers many different outdoor sports and pastimes, but it is always a firm favourite with cyclists. With the miles of dedicated cycle paths, it’s easy to see why it is the most visited National Park on the British Isles by tourists. Cycling is one of the most popular pastimes in the UK and a great way for you and your family to stay fit. For well over a decade now, with the growing popularity of mountain bikes, cycling across some of the more remote and less accessible areas has grown within easy reach of all terrain cyclists. This has seen the Derbyshire Peak District quickly becoming one of the most popular places to ride in the English countryside.

For the less inclined or less able, there are the usual A and B roads to cycle along, plus the networks of child friendly cycle paths and dedicated cycle trails, which have been converted from disused railway lines. These cycle friendly routes pass through or close to many rural villages and other places of interest along the way.

So, whether you are looking for holiday cottages Derbyshire or you would like to rent a local Peak District cottage, you will be sure to be staying in one of the most beautiful places in the UK. You will be well placed to find plenty to do and see in and around the Peak District and the exquisite surrounding area.
