DERBYSHIRE has been voted the fourth cheapest county to have a short break in Britain.

A Trip Advisor survey said the average spend for a break in the county is £570. This is based on a two-bedroom rental accommodation, a meal out and basic groceries.

Tourism chiefs in the county have backed the survey and are now encouraging more visitors.

John Broderick, managing director at Don Amott Leisure Kingdom Ltd in Hilton, welcomed the survey results.

He said: “We have seen sales increases of 63 per cent year-on-year with people spending money on their caravans.

“People who are buying them want to spend their holiday time in Derbyshire and get great value for money.”

David James, chief executive of Visit Peak District and Derbyshire, the area’s official tourist board, said: “We’re delighted, but not surprised, that Derbyshire offers such good value for money.”
