A relaxing stay in the Peak District is ideal for expectant parents before their little bundle of joy arrives.

Lovely hotels and beautiful walks make it the perfect place for a ‘babymoon’ which is a term coined for a final child-free getaway before the onslaught of nappy changes and pushchairs.

The online floral greetings card company, Flowercard, ranked 35 destinations across the UK, based on factors such as the number of romantic hotels, restaurants, and couple activities, to create the ultimate babymoon index.

Research into overnight accommodation, using booking.com, found that the Peak District had the cheapest four-star hotels, at an average of £100 per night and the third cheapest 3-star hotel, on average £80 per night.
