Easter Break in the Peak District

Easter Break in The Peak District 2022

An abundance of snowdrops and a handful of colours are peeking their heads out from their winter slumber. The spring equinox is just around the corner, and the easter bunny is planning a visit. ​ 

At Peak Venues, we're excited for the longer days of rambling up the rolling hilltops and soaking in the views as the leaves return to the trees. 

In 2022, Easter Sunday falls on 17th April. We've gathered some gorgeous homestays for you to take advantage of the 4 day Easter weekend.

Applehoe Cottage

Applehoe is a delightful cottage nestled in the beautiful village of Great Longstone. It's in a perfect spot to enjoy the Peak District's tourist honey pots, Buxton, Bakewell and Hope Valley.

After a long day of exploring, visit the many pubs and shops nearby, then slowly meander your way back to the cottage. It's perfect for couples or small families. Sleeps 4.

The Stocking Mill

The Stocking Mill was featured in a Conde Nast Traveller article as one of their 10 best stays in the Peak District.

It's a cottage from the 17th century that holds thick exposed stone walls and deep windowsills. Contemporary interior design has been combined with its traditional charm. It's a perfect resting spot after a long walk. Sleeps 4.

Rose Cottage

A haven for couples or small families, Rose Cottage is cosy and secluded with a beautiful outdoor space. It's a traditional Derbyshire cottage nestled in the south of the Peak District in the rural village of Chelmorton. A perfect place to unwind, and its garden means there are lots of places to hide easter eggs! Sleeps 4.

Edge Cottage

Doorstep walks to Curbar Edge and White Edge. A stone's throw from Bakewell and Eyam, make sure to bring your walking boots as Edge cottage is excellent for explorers and has a wonderful garden for egg hunting on Easter day.  Sleeps 6.

Thornbridge Lodge

We love Thornbridge Lodge for its location, as it's right by the Monsal Trail. It's an old railway track, which means it's relatively flat and family friendly.

Peak District Kids have a great blog about cycling the Monsal Trail with kids. We recommend this blog for school holiday inspiration. Sleeps 10.
