The best self-catering accommodation in the Peak District

Local author Helen Moat shares her favourite self-contained lodges, cottages and shepherds’ huts from the region.

From Stoney Middleton to Eyam: a walk through The Great Plague

The story begins with a delivery of cloth from London to George Viccars, an Eyam tailor.
Helen Moat was born in Northern Ireland and spent her childhood travelling the length and breadth of the island in her Dad’s Morris Minor – or so it seemed: she still suffers from wanderlust. Helen studied German in England, living in Switzerland and Germany for extended periods. The author has since settled in the Peak District, her adopted home. She is constantly inspired by the local landscape, and the people and places shaped by the Peaks. A keen walker and cyclist, she’s happiest when outdoors and on the move. As a travel and fiction writer, she’s always on the hunt for a good story. The Peak District gives her plenty of material.
