There's no denying, there are some rather picture perfect spots here in Britain that are perfect for your next staycation in the UK. If you're considering a getaway in the idyllic Derbyshire countryside, then we've rounded up the best hotels in the Peak District to inspire your next holiday.

If you're not familiar with the Peaks, it's an area of outstanding natural beauty in the UK, full of stunning scenery, mountains, cosy countryside pubs and protected meadows. It's also a lot more affordable than many other UK countryside retreats such as the Lake District or the Cotswolds but in our opinion, is equally as beautiful.

In 1952, the Peak District was awarded National Park status, making it the very first place in the UK to achieve this status, and since then, lovers of walking holidays and the great outdoors have been flocking to Derbyshire to holiday in this protected landscape.

From quiet hideaways to luxury retreats, there are plenty of different accommodation options to choose from. To narrow things down for you, we've rounded up our top pick of the best hotels in the Peak District national park.

If you’re in search for the perfect romantic getaway with your partner, then we’d recommend Derbyshire’s Callow Hall. While the rooms at the Hall are idyllic, it’s the treehouses that we’re fans of. Tucked away in the shelter of the trees, these woodland hideaways provide a calm and quiet retreat for couples or even larger families.
