It can be a real challenge, especially if you have little ones, to keep everyone occupied and doing something they all want to do
Peak District, UK, 28th November 2012 (PRWEB UK) 28 November 2012
'How about enjoying one of the beautiful picturesque Peak District cottages with a hot tub, in the rain? 'Laughs James Dobson, director for the very successful family run company, http://www.peakdistrictonline.co.uk.
James Dobson lives and works in the Peak District and started a very popular online holiday accommodation directory several years ago with his business partner, Steve Wake. Both directors run the company and also provide the accompanying stunning photographs, with the mindset of helping visitors to the area find not only accommodation suitable for their budget, but also providing lots of information about places to go and things to do, especially in wet weather.
'The English weather is always unpredictable,' says James. 'And it's even more unpredictable here in the Peak District, even in the summer, raining sometimes without any warning on even the most hot summer's day. But this is what makes our gorgeous part of the world so lush and green.' He does understand what it's like to be on holiday in the rain, having spent many a wet family holiday in Derbyshire and other parts of the country in the school holidays.
'It can be a real challenge, especially if you have little ones, to keep everyone occupied and doing something they all want to do, ' he says. 'With this in mind we have a whole section dedicated to the activities for children and adults of all ages. A lot of them don't involve spending a lot of money; we know wallets have been hit very hard at the moment with the recession. Why not think about simply putting on a pair of wellies and buttoning up the coats, and taking the children for a trip out for a paddle? Even in winter and adventure tramping across the moors or feeding the ducks in Bakewell can make lasting memories for any holiday without spending a penny.'
Listing the largest directory for all types of holiday accommodation throughout the entire Peak District, the team at PDO have made it their mission to find lots of wet weather things to do for their customers - no matter what.
'We have provided lots of new places to go to enjoy the scenery,' says Steve. 'Lots of them provide shelter and can also provide lots of fun. One such area is Padley Gorge. This is a wonderful place, especially if the sun is shining, but because it is under the shelter of so many trees, it does provide a most magical day out, come rain or shine.' He goes on to say,' we have all sorts of holiday accommodation with pools attached, saunas or hot tubs, but also those with indoor play areas or on farms to help keep the children happy. We also list the nearest Peak District attractions for all properties and our holiday accommodation owners go out of their way to help their residents make the most of their stay and not let the weather get them down, by providing their own leaflets and welcome packs with lots of information of places of interest.'
What started off as a small business directory listing the various types of holiday accommodation covering the entire Peak District area has now grown into a huge website visited by over 200,000 people a month.
'Whether you are here for a holiday or just for a short break, our website is packed full of pages to help you to enjoy your break or special treat,' says James. 'We would urge anyone not yet having booked their holiday for next year or even what's left of this, to have a wander through our pages to plan their time away and get the most out of their special time away from home.'
