We visited Peak District village and these 13 photos show why it was named among the UK’s best hidden gem holiday destinations

A Peak District village has been named as one of the UK’s best holiday hidden gems – perfect for those planning a staycation in Derbyshire.

A new study has identified the top hidden gem holiday destinations across England, and Monyash – located five miles away from Bakewell – has been ranked among the country’s best staycation spots.

Schofields Insurance, a leading provider of holiday home insurance, conducted the study – using data including crime rates and a tourist attraction score.

As part of the research, Schofields Insurance also surveyed 1,000 adults aged over 18 in the UK to identify their top locations for holiday homes, which helped to uncover a number of villages and small towns that rarely appear in lists for the top holiday cottage destinations in England.

We decided to visit Monyash ourselves to see why it had ranked so highly – will you be making plans to visit Monyash in the future?
