Why Derbyshire is the perfect place for an Airbnb rental

Derbyshire has a combination of characteristics that some counties can only dream of, but the home of the peak district often goes under the radar as a place for a weekend away. With some absolutely stunning places to stay, Derbyshire might well be your next location for a scenic break, and what better way to do it than in an Airbnb. If you’re not familiar with the concept of Airbnb, we’ll explain how it works and why staying in one in Derbyshire is such a good idea.

How does Airbnb work?

Airbnb, founded in 2007, has experienced tremendous growth in the last decade. Many people now prefer staying in Airbnb accommodations over hotels and resorts for both leisure and business trips. The concept is simple: property owners or landlords rent out their properties for short-term stays through Airbnb’s website, catering to travellers seeking a more affordable, flexible, private, and homely experience compared to traditional hotels.

Managing the property is the responsibility of the owner or a hired property management company, including uploading the listing on Airbnb. Guests can easily book their stays through the host on Airbnb’s platform, streamlining the entire process for both hosts and visitors. Staying in an Airbnb is distinct from other accommodations because of its simplicity; there are no complicated booking systems or long-term rental contracts. It’s like temporarily borrowing someone’s house or apartment, making it suitable for short stays that might not be feasible or affordable with other accommodation options.

Why staying in an Airbnb in Derbyshire is a great idea

With its central location, beautiful surroundings and bustling towns, Derbyshire is an underrated location when it comes to renting an Airbnb, whether it be for a short stay to visit family or a slightly longer one to walk some of the peaks, there’s a few reasons an Airbnb rental in Derbyshire is a great idea.

Stunning scenery

As mentioned a couple of times now (we know!), Derbyshire is home to a large part of the Peak District, as well as other areas of outstanding beauty. Trips to well known beauty spots including Mam Tor, Kinder Scout and Dovedale should be on the list if you’re renting an Airbnb in Derbyshire. Alongside these fantastic walking spots, scenic places such as Carsington Water, Elvaston Castle Country Park and Calke Abbey are a fantastic visit. We’ve only named a few, but Derbyshire has some real beauty to explore!

Charming villages

What better to do after a scenic walk than stop in a charming village for a spot of dinner and a well-earned drink? Luckily, Derbyshire is full of quaint towns and villages that are home to lovely shops, restaurants and unique forms of entertainment. Our favourites include Matlock Bath and the cable cars up to the Heights of Abraham, Bakewell and the magical Chatsworth House and Ashbourne with its rich history surrounding the yearly Shrovetide tradition (look it up, it’s fascinating!). All of these towns are easily accessible by public transport and as Derbyshire isn’t too big, an Airbnb just nearby will suffice if you plan on visiting these wonderful towns!

Central location

This applies to those who may be staying in Derbyshire for business as well as families that are visiting relatives nearby. Derbyshire is a very central county, with fantastic connections by road or rail to cities around the midlands and afar. This good accessibility makes Derbyshire a very convenient county to stay in, especially for short-term rentals like Airbnb. In or around an hour you can jump on a train and be in Birmingham, Sheffield or Manchester, and not have to pay the prices that sometimes come with staying in the larger cities!

Eateries and breweries

With tasty delights such as Bakewell Tarts and Derbyshire Oatcakes originating from the county, Derbyshire has a severely underrated foodie scene! The county also hosts many farmers markets and is home to some amazing farm shops due to the busy farming culture present in Derbyshire. As well as these, Derbyshire is also home to some amazing breweries that create an abundance of tasty ales and ciders for you to try. The picks of the bunch being Thornbridge Brewery, Derby Brewing Co and The Hole in the Wall. All of these are in locations that are fabulous places to stay a few nights in an Airbnb so you can soak up the atmosphere (and beer) and get a good night’s sleep after!

Overall, Derbyshire’s combination of natural beauty, cultural attractions, outdoor activities, accessibility, and local charm makes it a desirable destination for Airbnb rentals, catering to a wide range of travellers seeking unique experiences in the heart of England’s countryside. This captivating county offers a plethora of opportunities for exploration and relaxation amidst its stunning landscapes and historical landmarks, providing an ideal setting for memorable vacations and getaways.
