Holmefield House is a large holiday cottage very close to the Peak District
What better place to spend a few days with friends and family than by exploring the high ways and bye ways of the Peak District National Park. The town of Matlock is well known as the gateway to the Peak District National Park, and the popular Heights of Abraham is certainly something which has to be seen - Heights of Abraham, technically, isn't in Matlock, but in Matlock Bath - although this is only a mile away.
Darley Dale is another small village close to Matlock on the Peak District's southern fringes, with the lovely Whitworth Park to discover. The reason I've mentioned Darley Dale is that this is where you'll find the rather large holiday cottage of Holmefield House. Holmefield House sleeps 14 people, so if you're looking for an abode for a few days, for lots of people, Holmefield House could bake your cake.

A little bit about Holmefield House
Holmefield House was a "gentleman's residence" in the olden days - not too sure what that means; but let us not worry about that now. Holmefield House is now a holiday cottage with 7 bedrooms, and sleeps 14 people. What a place for a get-together. Oh, and the living room has an open fire, so after a day walking through the Peak District you can swirl a brandy around your glass and sit in front of that fire, like lord of the manor. There are some pretty terrific views across the gardens and countryside too, so while taking breakfast you can gaze out across the surroundings.
Oh, and Alton Towers is a short drive from Holmefield House, so if you've got children in tow, and they don't fancy another day walking the British wilds, you can always whisk them off to Alton Towers for the day!
