Robin – Derbyshire Dales
A good run through after leaving Thurrock and South Mimms.
We stopped at Stamford for lunch; all the guests enjoyed the visit to this town.
We arrived at the hotel about 15.45.
Monday was spent at Chatsworth House. We spent about 5 hours here, again all the guests enjoyed the visit.
We visited the town of Bakewell. At the Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop we all had a go at making Bakewell Puddings. Those who participated really enjoyed it.
We then went to Buxton for lunch. After a while the weather changed and it poured with rain. After this we went for a scenic drive around the Dales. The weather became very wet. We ended up with a short visit to Eyam, the Plague Village, before returning to the hotel.
We went to Matlock Bath and had a enjoyable visit. We then went to the village of Hollington, driving through Dovedale. We ended up at the Carsington Reservoir Visitor Centre before returning back to our hotel.
Today we headed home. We stopped off on the way for a visited to Rufford Abbey Country Park.
