Lyme Park, Cheshire Lyme House and Garden is a place for people who want to step back in time. Located 19 miles from Manchester, on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme will greet you with 1,400 acre estate and its lake surrounded by multiple gardens. Park your Elliott’s rental car and go exploring Rose and Ravine Gardens, or wonder around to herbaceous borders next to the lake where BBC production of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ took place. If your little ones have joined you for the drive in the rental car, they will enjoy the Crow Wood Playscape that features a big slide, badger den, as well as rope walks. When your stomachs start rumbling, Timberyard Cafe is available near by and offers cold and hot snacks, soups, cakes and a variety of drinks.
Peak District National Park Peak District spreads through 555 square miles and covers parts of the counties of Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Staffordshire, and Cheshire. It holds some of the most breathtaking landscapes, the heart of it being only 38 miles from Manchester. Grab one of our rental cars and drive to Peak District, to enjoy a nice walk in nature and breathing fresh air. It is also perfect location for your children to run around and have outdoor adventures. On the other hand, if you and your significant other or a friend would like to take a cycling trip, Peak District is also a place to go. Grab our Small Van, pack up the bicycles and have fun exploring natural outdoor beauty with its moorlands and dales or more rural area of villages and market towns.

Haworth If you are looking for a break in a picturesque village, Haworth is the place to go. Located 44 miles from Manchester, it is mostly famous for the Brontë sisters. It is also a great place for independent shops, art galleries and multiple places for delicious food. Rent one of Elliott’s comfortable cars and drive up to the world’s first Fairtrade Village, status that Haworth gained in 2002. If you want to learn more about this initiative pop into Sonia’s Smile, where the owners will be happy to tell you all about it. For literature lovers you can finish your roundtrip by visiting the Bronte Parsonage, the home of famous Brontë sisters that now is turned into a museum. After getting a glimpse to the way they lived, wonder to Brontë Bridge, Brontë Falls and the ruins of Top Withens, which is said to be inspiration for the famous Wuthering Heights.
