With ancient settlements and historic villages, Derbyshire is a time machine, and you can go back as far as you like. Many of the villages have stood for hundreds of years, with the oldest areas preserved and protected for you to discover.

All of this history is wrapped up in beautiful countryside, where craggy hills, sweeping dales, picturesque water bodies and areas of dense woodland converge. 

So, why should you book a hot tub lodge break in Derbyshire? Because you get beauty and history wherever you go. The Peak District National Park and High Peak Moors are unrivalled in their splendour. You really can’t go wrong holidaying here. 

Things to Do in Derbyshire 

Ready to book your hot tub lodge holiday in Derbyshire, and want to plan some things to do? Here are some of our favourites.

Chatsworth House

Chatsworth House is a glorious stately home by the River Derwent. Construction of the main building started in 1687 and was completed in 1708. Additions were added a hundred years later, creating a jaw-droppingly beautiful place to visit. 

Chatsworth House is perfect for walks, picnics, lazy days and double bank fly fishing, with a four-mile fishing route. Many of the walking routes are accessible and the grounds are very well-maintained, with not an overgrown hedgerow to see.  There's a full guide to walking holidays with hot tubs here.

Haddon Hall

Described as “The most perfect house to survive from the middle ages,” Haddon Hall dates back to the 11th century. Additions were added between the 13th and 17th centuries, creating a place where incredible architecture and beauty converge. 

Going to Haddon Hall during your hot tub break here, is like going through a time machine. The grounds and buildings are preserved with their original character, which is clear to see in the uneven steps. You can also get a tour of Haddon Hall if you’d like to learn all of its secrets. 

Castleton and Peveril Castle

Castleton is the most beautiful village in the Peak District if you ask us. Whether you arrive through the dramatic limestone gorge of Winnats Pass or from the Hope Valley, everything about it oozes history, character and beauty. 

Castleton is home to many things, including an outdoor cinema in a cave. But the real draw is Peveril Castle, a ruined 11th century fortress. The keep was built by Henry II in 1176, and a walk up the site reveals breath-taking views over the Hope Valley. 

Thornbridge Hall Gardens

Surrounded by 12 acres of quintessentially British gardens, Thornbridge Hall Gardens offers a great day out on a clear summer’s day. The gardens were designed at the end of the 19th Century, but the hall itself dates back much earlier. 

The hall dates back to at least the 12th century, although the original building was demolished and rebuilt in 1871 in the Jacobean style. The hall we see today was designed by George Marples, who in 1896 enlarged the house and laid out the gardens. 

Arbor Low Stone Circle

Arbor Low Stone Circle is a prehistoric monument consisting of some 50 stones set into a 40-metre diameter circle. The monument dates back to at least 3,000 BC and is considered to be the most important prehistoric site of the East Midlands. 

We know that numerous settlements have existed around the Arbor Low Stone Circle over thousands of years. Stone, bone and antler tools have been excavated and evidence suggests the site was in use until into the Bronze Age.
