    Frolic in the forest in South Derbyshire

    Pack your walking boots and get ready to explore the great outdoors! Bang in the middle of England, South Derbyshire District vacation rentals have more than their fair share of green and pleasant land, from the walking and cycling trails of the National Forest to the Derbyshire hills that roll towards the mighty Peak District. The area is home to quaint villages, market towns, and historic houses, as well as the creative city of Derby—once a center of the Industrial Revolution. Come the summer season there are quirky local festivals aplenty—if you're lucky, you might even get to meet one of the local town criers.

    South Derbyshire District—get your blood pumping

    A paradise for walkers and cyclists, you'll want to make sure you take full advantage of South Derbyshire's biggest-and top-billed-attraction, the National Forest. Work up a sweat on the walking and biking trails, thunder through the trees on horseback, go for a spot of sailing on one of the local reservoirs, or make like Robin Hood and learn some ancient woodland crafts. If that all seems like a bit too much action, a traditional tea or pub lunch in one of the many watering holes is a great way to cool down. And let's not forget that South Derbyshire District vacation rentals offers plenty of attractions for history buffs, too.

    Descend through the mists of time

    Historians young and old can pretend they're in a period drama while wandering around the area's stately houses and gardens. Sudbury Hall has lavish interiors, manicured gardens, and a Museum of Childhood to keep the kids happy. Meanwhile, Calke Abbey embraces the unusual with its maze of corridors, tunnels, and rooms crammed full of stuffed creatures and antique furniture. Elvaston Castle Country Park's 321 acres of parkland, woodland, and formal gardens are great for blowing off steam, and Melbourne Hall and Gardens looks as if it's been plucked straight from the pages of a Jane Austen novel.

From March and April, spring brings an array of life and color. Prices aren't yet at their peak, but the mild weather means it's a great time to hit the local hills.

    It's all about the greenery

Squeezed between the Peak District and the National Forest, this walking hotspot has a healthy dose of rolling hills, woodland, farmland, and forest, as well as some lively market towns and the cultural city hub of Derby. For watery frolics, there are a number of lakes and reservoirs, as well as the Trent and Mersey Canal, from which visitors can explore the sights and sounds from the comfort of narrow boats and barges.
