Woodside House is a quality 4 Star self-catering holiday home that sleeps 14. Located in the lovely Derwent Valley, a perfect spot from which to explore the Peak District and the glorious countryside of Derbyshire, the house makes a spacious venue for a large family holiday or celebration.

Built in the 1840s as a home for the Chief Engineer during the building of the Midland Railway, this superb house nestles in an area of natural beauty near the historic town of Belper, located at the gateway to the Peak District National Park. Bordering on 555 miles of natural beauty with lush farmland and peaceful dales to the south, and rugged moorland and peaks in the north, Woodside holiday house is within easy reach of all the activities the Peaks have to offer. From walking, cycling, climbing and caving, to watersports and fishing, there is so much for do for all ages.

The area boasts many of Britain's finest heritage sites too including the stunning National Trust property of Chatsworth House.

With some 2500km of public rights of way, the Peak District National Park really is a walker's haven. Its varied landscape of beautiful forest, dark peaks and dancing rivers is equally suited to a gentle stroll, or a energetic uphill hike. If you prefer two wheels, then the cycle paths and mountain biking opportunities suit all levels of fitness. For watersports, nearby Carsington Water offers sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, powerboating and fishing. Or climb the crags towering high above the water at the River Derwent, and take in the beautiful countryside from a new angle.

For children, the Tramway Village theme park provides thrills, spills and amusements and Alton Towers, the most famous theme park in the country is also a 30 minute drive away.

The house is well connected for public transport - Ambergate railway station is a mere 100 meters away and local buses link the towns of Belper, Matlock, Derby (form national train connections), and Bakewell so you can easily sample the unique character and hospitality of each of these historic market towns. This house is easily accessible from the M1 and the A38 too, making it a good location for a short break.
