Winter Walking In The Peaks - How To Beat The Conditions
If you enjoy weekend breaks in the Peak District in the spring and summer, but would like to try something a little different, you might like to take a trip to the Peak District at Christmas time. The crisp and fresh outdoors combined with the warmth of a lovely hotel in Derbyshire adds up to be the perfect Christmas break! The scenery of the Peak District is beautiful at Christmas time, as the glittering frost glimmers in the woodland and the towns display their Christmas lights and markets.
The Peak District is a perfect place to do your Christmas shopping. Its picturesque towns and villages boast many wonderful independent shops and boutiques to cater for everybody, be they fashion boutiques, chocolate shops or quaint gift shops. You may come across a craft fair where you could purchase something entirely unique for someone special in your life. Shopping in the Peak District offers an alternative to the busy, stressful city shopping centres and shopping malls.
The attractions in the Peak District can be particularly beautiful at Christmas time. Chatsworth House is a particular highlight when it comes to Christmas. It adopts a wonderful Christmas theme in the farm shop, selling all the favourites from mulled wine to venison and pheasant from the estate. This year, Chatsworth is holding an exhibition based around Christmas carols named 'Deck the Halls: A visual celebration of carols'.
As well as the attractions, the villages and towns in the Peak District deck the streets with beautiful Christmas lights and you can feel the Christmas spirit just by walking amongst the festive atmosphere. Part of what makes Christmas so beautiful is the community spirit, so why not enjoy a drink in the local pub or join in with some carolling. Children and adults alike will feel the anticipation and excitement of Christmas, and the memories of your trip will stay with you throughout the Christmas season.
Whether you would prefer a day in the great outdoors or a day exploring the lovely shops and cafes, the warmth of the hotel is what you can look forward to at the end of the day. There is nothing more satisfying than enjoying a mug of hot chocolate with a Christmas film in your hotel room at the end of a cold and busy day. Whether you are a family or a couple, you can enjoy the warmth and cosiness of your hotel room, knowing you can relax and unwind but also look forward to returning home for Christmas.
