The summer’s shaping up to be a scorcher and we know that if you join us at Oaklands Country Lodges, you’ll be in the best place to make the most of the wonderful weather and the great British outdoors with the Peak District on our doorstep.
There’s no shortage of fantastic activities to take part in – from leisurely cycling, walking and boating to the more daring tree top adventures at Go Ape (http://goape.co.uk/days-out/buxton), 80 feet of abseiling at Millers Dale Bridge (www.abseilingderbyshire.co.uk) or caving and a myriad of other activities with www.twinpeaksoutdooractivities.com/home.html– all in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District, and just a hop, skip and a jump away from Oaklands!
So you don’t believe there’s that much to do? Or you’re not sure exactly what you want to do? Then why not check out the best activities on offer on one of the specialist Peak District visitor information sites at www.visitpeakdistrict.com/ or www.peakdistrictinformation.com/visits/
If you’d like to know what top tips others have got for you, then take a look at what The Guardian said about the Peak District earlier this year at www.theguardian.com/travel/peakdistrict, Lonely Planet’s recommendations for what to do while you’re here (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/england/the-midlands/peak-district/things-to-do) or The Independent’s review of walking the Pennine Way www.independent.co.uk/travel/uk/the-pennine-way-at-50-walking-the-cumbrian-leg-from-langdon-beck-to-alston-10193247.html?origin=internalSearch
And if the great British climate does fail you and the rain closes in, then just take another look at the visitor information sites – they’ve got plenty to do whether it’s rain or shine!
Whether you’re a dare devil, history buff, leisurely lifestyle lover or wildlife enthusiast, we’ve got something perfect for you. And if you’re not all about the outdoors, then why not visit an indoor attraction, swot up on historical facts at one of the county’s museums or visitor centres or have a blast on our social scene?
There’s always the classics like Chatsworth House, Alton Towers and many well established National Trust properties like Sudbury House or Keddleston Hall – or if you’re feeling less traditional you could always try fabulous family attraction Conkers (www.visitconkers.com) or recently rejuvenated Twycross Zoo (www.twycrosszoo.org)
