Peak District Christmas Breaks

Peak District Christmas Breaks offer an alternative to spending Christmas at home. Whether you prefer to hibernate in a rural retreat or celebrate in Peak District style, there is sure to be the ideal solution listed under Peak District Christmas Breaks.

Peak District Christmas Breaks offer amazing experiences. What can be better than a refreshing walk in scenic countryside; especially if there has been a nice keen frost which has put paid to pesky flies, hardened up a muddy path and added a sprinkling of silver to the foliage, with ice diamonds dangling from bushes and a rosy glow warming your cheeks?

The week over Christmas and The New Year is for many a time to celebrate, but it can also be a convenient opportunity in the dark days of winter for a chance to escape to the country – chill out and explore with one of our Peak District Christmas Breaks Shopping can be a chore with many high street shops selling the same gift packs and goodies.

In the Peak District we have countless individual shops, craft workshops and small rural enterprises making novel and new ideas.

Why walk shoulder to shoulder in some busy hypermarket and huge retailer outlet when you can shop in comfort and ease to find that something special which will be treasured and appreciated.

Peak District Christmas Breaks would not be complete without a spot of retail therapy! Towns and villages take Christmas and The New Year to heart, and are often bedecked with sparkling colourful lights and decorations with Christmas trees in all directions.

The Peak District is packed with age old traditions and quaint country customs, and never more so than around Christmas and The New Year Where else can you sing carols by candlelight in caverns, take part in a Christmas Cracker Fell Race, sail downriver on a Boxing Day Raft Race or listen to The Devil’s Arse Sings! And what you may ask is a Christmas mummer or guiser all about? Christmas Breaks offer you the opportunity to join in the fun and experience Christmas with a difference.

Perfect for families. Santa and his helpers are very busy in the The Peak District and he can be found travelling by steam train, handing out presents from grottos and general stores as well as making special appearances at many of the Christmas and New Year events.

On the other hand you may wish to escape the festive season and choose to avoid all that turkey and tinsel, the party hats and streamers. For visitors wanting to getaway from it all there are places just for you.

Snuggle down by a roaring log fire or venture out on a walk or bike ride and let Christmas simply pass you by!
