A Taste of the
Skylark Holidays provide holidays and breaks that inform, encourage and inspire. Our Holidays and Taster days offer you a package of leisure activity courses with accommodation that will provide you with a friendly relaxing experience …
Set in the peace and tranquility of Derbyshire, Skylark Holidays offer an escape from the daily routine and provides an opportunity to try a new skill or to indulge an existing passion. Our holidays include language courses, astronomy, photography, dyeing, painting, spinning, wine tasting, walking and weaving. Please visit our web site for further information.
We are supported by people who are experts in their field. They are experienced at tutoring or leading, and making you at ease. They will take you through your chosen activity and give you the benefit of their knowledge so that you can grasp an understanding and gain a sense of achievement.
At the core of our Derbyshire holidays and short breaks is the specialist interest that you want to experience. We take account of your personal preferences and capabilities to shape the detail. You will be encouraged to take things at your own pace and to absorb yourself as much or as little as you want. We will give you the opportunity to meet other people who share a love and fascination for the same specialist interest.
Our size means we can pay personal attention to each aspect of your holiday
so that you can make the most of your time enjoying your specialist interest,
activity, hobby or craft. Come with your suitcase and leave with new friends,
new skills and great memories.
Our Gift vouchers make an excellent Birthday or Christmas present.
Accommodation is either Bed & Breakfast or self-catering. We use quality/accredited establishments in the same locality as the venue for the courses and activities. There is self-catering on-site at Windlehill Farm, near Sutton on the Hill in the south of Derbyshire, within easy reach of Derby, Burton and Ashbourne and close to the Peak District and the National Forest - all of the other establishments are within 10 minutes drive time down country lanes.
Alternatively, if you are a writer or author and are seeking inspiration, why not hire out a self catering cottage in the Peak District of Derbyshire and experience the countryside that inspired Jane Austen to write Pride and Prejudice - here is an article that could help aspiring authors to get their own work published ...
