Too good to miss - winter discounts in the Peaks
Now is the time to enjoy a fine glass of Leatherbritches or lay your head down in the Old Laundry while saving money on a visit to the Peak District.
For the Bentley Brook Inn, home of the Leatherbritches Brewery in Fenny Bentley, and the Old Laundry in Ashbourne are just a couple of the 38 tempting Peak District hideaways offering four nights for the price of three, or three for the price of two during January and February.
New Year is the time to launch a fresh, healthy lifestyle and the Peak District is the ideal place to do it: visitors can just step out into some of the UK's best walking country - where, incidentally, the first Peak District Walking Festival will be held in April-May.
For the adventurous, new access rights to the open country give unparalleled views across sweeping uplands, while on lower ground, well-maintained trails offer safe, traffic-free cycling, riding or walking - and when it's time to eat and sleep, the choice of accommodation in the winter discount scheme is wide.
Hotels, bed and breakfasts and self-catering cottages include such evocative names as the Holly Homestead in Middleton by Youlgreave, Shepherds Folly in Bradley, Ladyhole House in Yeldersley and Knockerdown Holiday Cottages in Carsington.
In addition, there's the Offcote Grange Holiday Cottages in Biggin, which won a silver award in the East Midlands 2005 Enjoy England Excellence awards, and the historic George Hotel in Hathersage where Charlotte Brontë drew some of her inspiration for Jane Eyre.
