A Stroll in the Peak District with Jim & Paula

  A Stroll in the Peak District  

We had an exciting journey up to the Peak District and couldn't wait to check in to our luxury Woodland Lodges.

We visited the National Tramway Museum. The museum’s tramway runs through the village transporting visitors out into the local countryside and back. This was a fantastic experience! We then drove to Cromford canal and sat by the water’s edge for lunch followed by a lovely walk along the canal path.

In Ilam Park we threw wood sticks off St Bertram’s bridge followed by a cream tea in the Italian garden and strolled around the beautiful grounds. That day we also went to Dovedale in the South Peak area. We walked beside the River Dove through the limestone hill valley reaching the famous stepping stones. It is such a beautiful area!

At the Chatsworth Estate we had a lovely time walking across the Park spotting so many different plants and sculptures. We followed the river and eventually the famous Chatsworth House came into view. What a beautiful building set in such idyllic surroundings. We went inside the house and had a fantastic time exploring the beautiful rooms. 

We all had a great time in the Peak District and our evenings were spent in lovely restaurants, pubs or having fun playing pool tournaments.
