Castleton, Peak District
Now more than ever people are turning to 'staycations' rather than travelling abroad. Living in the UK I am lucky to have so many national parks so close to home and one of my absolute favourites is the Peak District National Park. Home to some breathtaking landscapes and stunning camping spots, but don't worry if camping isn't your thing then here are three of the best places to stay on your visit.
Dunscar Farm Bed and Breakfast
Castleton is not only one of my favourite villages in the UK but also home to this incredible B&B, with rooms from £37p/night it is a very affordable and perfect location for walkers. Breakfast includes a traditional cooked breakfast along with a range of cold selections as well. What really draws us back to this B&B along with the stunning location, clean rooms and delicious breakfasts is the staff! They are all amazing and can never do enough to help you, need advice on a walking route... no problem. Need recommendations on where to have dinner... they'll help book a table for you. Even throughout COVID restriction difficulties, they were always happy to do as much as they can to make you comfortable.

Also located in Castleton this hotel and restaurant sits right in the hub of the village along the main high street, with rooms from £50 per night it is a more expensive option but I would still highly recommend it. Whether you decide to stay here or not you must try their restaurant! The food is phenomenal and I have never had a bad meal, if you can it's best to pre-book as they are usually quite busy. You can check out their website for more information or make bookings: yeoldenagshead.co.uk
This Inn is not exactly a cheap place to stay, but if you have the budget then I would highly recommend a stay here. The huge rooms are decorated beautifully and surrounded by amazing views from all directions. The bar and restaurant are so cosy with beams and a fireplace to keep you cosy in the winter and the meals are incredible. Located in the Holmfirth, North of the Peak District, there are plenty of hikes nearby or a short drive away to keep you occupied or if you're feeling a little bit more adventurous check out my previous post:
