Hiring a motorhome? Here are some great places to visit in the Peak District

Stanage Edge – Motorhome holiday in the Peak District

Motorhome hire is a great option if you’d like to explore and visit areas such as the beautiful Peak District. You can travel anywhere the road takes you and you’ll normally easily be able to find somewhere to park up and spend the night. During the coronavirus pandemic, when holidays in many destinations are looking, at best, uncertain, motorhome hire is a very attractive option for many.

One of the benefits of the visiting the Peak District is the huge range of sights and attractions you’ll find; the beauty of the Peaks remains constant, so it’s only the very strictest lockdown that can prevent you enjoying it. But hiring a motorhome means that you have the flexibility to make the most of your holiday whatever restrictions are in place when your time off finally arrives.

Here are a few of our favourites from the Peak District. It isn’t an exhaustive list, but a selection to illustrate that however socially distanced we might need to be, you can still have a great holiday.


Perhaps the most iconic image of Dovedale is the stepping stones across the River Dove. The riverside path is a delightful, family-friendly walk taking you past woods that are teeming with wildlife. But if you are feeling up for a challenge then climbing Thorpe Cloud will reward you with incredible views across Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Bring walking boots!

Chatsworth House

On the bank of the River Derwent Chatsworth House is the magnificent home to the Cavendish family that has evolved over more-than-500 years it has been in the family’s ownership. The house itself has over 30 rooms normally  accessible by visitors, along with the shops and gardens which mean that whatever the restrictions there is likely to be something to do there for everyone.


A fixture on any list of the country’s most picturesque villages, Castleton is one of those small places that feels like it has everything. The village itself is packed with beautiful stone buildings and pubs where you can enjoy a pint with a view of Winnats Pass or Mam Tor. Or why not try the climb up Mam Tor to see the view that was celebrated as one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Peak’ by the 17th century philosopher Thomas Hobbs.

Alton Towers (actually, just outside the Peak District)

One that might be susceptible to current coronavirus measures, but also one that highlights the huge diversity of the Peaks District and surrounding areas

Alton Towers is one of the country’s leading theme parks and has something for everyone, from thrilling rides for the grown-ups to CBeebies Land for those that might still be a little short (or a little scared) for the roller-coasters!

If your kids are not too happy about the prospect of spending time in the outdoors, you could consider sweetening the deal with a trip here 

Find your favourite

The beauty of a motorhome hire in the Peak District is the freedom to explore the country’s most beautiful region. It’s simply impossible to list everything you could want to see or do (although the Peak District’s tourist site makes a superb attempt). Most people find that however well-researched their itinerary they will end their holiday with a list of places they found they want to come back to see. But the great thing about the Peak District is that will still be here: just hire a motorhome and come back!
