5 Things to do on a Rainy Holiday


You may have chosen the best detached holiday cottage in Derbyshire, you may have secured your favourite holiday home, you may have even planned out your holiday with military precision; but what can you do if the weather doesn’t hold up as you expected?

Indoor Centres for Young Children

If your young children are driving you up your stunning holiday home walls, perhaps it’s time to look at indoor play areas where they can blow off some steam.

Lunar Lift Off is a fantastic soft play centre for young children. Located in Ashbourne this adventurous space style play centre was made with the relaxation of mums and dads in mind. So while your little darlings are busy running around, exploring other planets and distant galaxies, you can put up your feet with a much needed cup of tea.

Creative Endeavours

Five minutes from Ashbourne, Sticky Fingers is a stunning place to retreat to during a rainy day. With plenty of scrummy homemade cakes to tempt your taste buds, you can enjoy a warming drink whilst letting your creativity roam. With a variety of pots to choose from, there’s nothing like a good painting session to brighten up your overcast holiday.


Watch a the Latest Movie

Sometimes the best way to spend a rainy day is with a bowl of warm popcorn and a comfortable seat. With a number of easy to reach cinemas scattered across Derbyshire and the Peak District, such as Showcase and CineBowl, you’re spoilt for choice.

If you’re wanting some movie magic with a difference, the Ritz Cinema in Belper offers a little of that Old World grace which you may be looking for on a relaxing holiday.


A Touch of Exploration

If you ache to be outdoors but the weather just isn’t playing, never fear. There are plenty of caverns to explore across Derbyshire and the Peak District. Our rich landscape has heralded the dramatic Poole’s Cavern in Buxton and the Treak Cliff and Blue John Cavern’s in Castleton.

With plenty more stunning, cultural, entertaining and relaxing places to see and visit, there’s no doubt that you’ll find somewhere to go everyday no matter the weather!
