Peak District National ParkA perfect weekend
Despite the name, this popular National Park is far from mountainous. What it does offer, however, is a gorgeous landscape of rolling green hills, limestone outcrops, vast reservoirs, pine forests and historic villages. Hire a bike to hit the main cross-country trails, or test yourself on the many climbing routes. Alternatively, discover the historic 'Pride and Prejudice' grandeur of Chatsworth or fill up on tea and sweet treats in the charming village of Bakewell, home to the famous cakes.
