Blore Hall is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Blore Hall below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio the charge averages about £315 a week, for a two bedroom property around £480 a week. Larger properties are also available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of just over £30 – that is around £130 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

As the UK's first designated National Park, the Peak District comprises two equally beautiful, yet utterly contrasting landscapes. The softer, gentler landscape of the 'White Peak' occupies the centre/ south and is formed primarily of pearly-white limestone. It is here that you will find Blore Hall, a magnificent historic house now renovated and converted as holiday apartments and cottages.

The Peak District is a nature-lover's paradise, teeming with wild flowers, birds and butterflies – many of which are found only in a few acres of deciduous woodland. Follow in the footsteps of the stars on the Film Tourism Trail, which celebrates the many period dramas that have been shot in the area, or sample the region's renowned food, drink and local produce.

Other pursuits include bird watching, canoeing, sailing, horse riding, coarse and game fishing. The River Dove, dubbed 'Princess of rivers' by Izaak Walton in his book The Compleat Angler, runs just half a mile from Blore Hall.

Explore the stunning Peak District on foot

You can't come to the Peak District without exploring at least some of it using your own two feet. There are lots of well-maintained paths and rights of way to follow, and every type of walker is catered for, whether you just want to enjoy a gentle stroll across the limestone dales, or challenge yourself by walking the high heather moorland.

Visit incredible historic buildings

History-buffs and architecture-fans will adore some of the historical buildings in the Peak District. The most notable is Chatsworth House, which is well-known and well-loved across the UK. Inside, 30 rooms are open to the public, as well as an impressive art collection spanning some 4,000 years. The gardens, fountains and children's farm are well-worth exploring too.

If you prefer castles, Bolsover Castle's painted walls are a wonderful sight to behold, and kids will love running around the expansive grounds. Alternatively, you could visit one of England's earliest Norman fortresses, Peveril Castle – it may stand in ruins, but it's still impressive.

Go underground

The Peak District is home to a number of caverns, should you feel brave enough to go underground. Blue John Cavern, near Castleton, has several natural chambers, including one which was once a working mine. It's here that you can view old mining equipment and see impressive pieces of Blue John Stone. However, the 'waterfall' and stalactite caverns are equally remarkable.

Another highly-recommended site is Poole's Cavern, which dates back two million years. This limestone cave is a fascinating place to visit and is suitable for the whole family.

Spend a day at Alton Towers

Thrill-seekers of all ages will love a day at Alton Towers, with its fantastic rollercoasters, including Nemesis, Oblivion and Rita. Younger children will love CBeebies Land, which includes the Octonauts Rollercoaster, Mr Bloom's Allotment and the In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride.
