Pamper parties in the Peak District
There are 13 National Parks in England and Wales, and the Peak District was the first national park to be established in 1951. The Peak District is located centrally in England and covers more the 550 square miles. The park has stunning landscapes to enjoy throughout the year, from the edges, to the reservoirs, viaducts, cycleways and varied wildlife and habitats. The park has been shaped by people and nature over thousands of years.
The Peak District National Park has three main landscapes, the Dark Peak, White Peak and South West Peak. The Dark Peak is composed of more rugged landscapes, providing ideal territory for visitors looking for challenging walks and outdoor experiences. It is well known for the gritstone plateaus and heather moorlands. The landscape is wild and remote and includes wooded areas too. The White Peak is characterised by limestone dales, with meadows, pastures, dry-stone walls and varied habitats. Derwent House is located close to the edge of the White Peak. The South West Peak has similarities to the Dark Peak, although with smaller area of moorland interlinked with hedges, pastures and farmland.
