#1 Cycle Trails
Cycling is one of the major activities to do in the Peak District. There are lots of cycling trails across the area – that are only accessible by bike. Explore the beautiful villages, stunning views, and trails around the reservoirs from the saddle of your bike.
Tour the Derwent trail, which is a bit steeper and more challenging than The Carsington trail.
#2 Walking Routes
You can spend some time exploring steep-sided rocky dales or simply taking a stroll around a charming village. You’ll love it here if you enjoy going for a walking tour. Even if you don’t fancy such, there’s something for everyone.
If you’d like to take on a difficult challenge, head over to the Pennine Way National Trail for a 268-miles walk, leading to Edale. Want something more challenging? Then, you should try a 2500-miles walk through The Trans Pennine Trail, which connects Cork in Ireland to Istanbul (Turkey).
If you’ve got some time, go for a walk through one of the most charming estates in the region – the Chatsworth Estate Walk. Also worth mentioning is taking a 3-hour Hiking to Thor’s Cave.
The Peak District is one of the top areas in the UK for keen cavers and adrenaline junkies. Most of them are composed of limestone which is also part of weird natural sculptures, labyrinths, and beautiful waterfalls.
Explore the depths of Titan Cave at Castleton, which is the highest natural cavern in England. Walk through limestone passageways, and learn how the rocks were formed through water centuries ago. If you want to try something new or take a challenge, then go wade in underground rivers, crawl through narrow passageways, or travel through clear rock pools.
Other highlights include Poole’s Cavern, Treak Cliff Cavern, and Great Masson Cavern. However, do yourself a favour by taking warm clothes along with you while you go do cave adventures!
#4 Horse Riding
Whether you’re a novice or a professional rider, exploring the area sitting on a horse is worth giving a try. Immerse yourself in the scenery on a self-guided rіdе оn the brіdlеwау network. One of the fun moments is riding off-road on the dedicated 65 miles route in the Peak District. If you ever find yourself, you surely don’t want to miss this.
#5 The Famous Attractions
The endless list of famous attractions is more than enough reasons to choose the peak district to host Airbnb.
Travelling with your kids? No worries! Head over to Lyme Park for some kid-friendly activities, including cycling guided walks, and exploring deer park.
If you want something different and adventurous, you should visit The Heights of Abraham. Be reminded though to have your camera with you for some ecstatic shoots of Derwent Valley. Visit the Masson Mills, a working textile museum with authentic machinery dating back to almost 1783.
