Visits to Matlock Bath and Bakewell
At the northern tip of the National Park is an area known as the High Peaks. To get there, we travel over Snake Pass, with its stunning elevated scenic vista to Ladybower Reservoir where the Dambusters trained during WWII.
Further on is Derwent Reservoir, with the ruins of Derwent Village hidden beneath its waters. On to Eyam, the plague town from 1665, with its museum and then Castleton, home of the legendary Blue John Caverns, said to be the finest in the UK and beloved by Queen Victoria.
Following a leisurely morning we head to the quaint town of Ashbourne, we then explore the eastern side of the Peak District. What better way to see the scenery glide past is by joining the nostalgic steam train journey through sweeping Derbyshire countryside between rowsley and Matlock.
We stop off at popular Matlock Bath, nestling alongside the River Derwent in a steep and beautiful gorge, with several attractions, walks, shops and cafés.
Entering the Peak District, we stop off in Bakewell, with a visit to the original Bakewell Pudding shop, where the famous tart is still made. The afternoon is spent at nearby Chatsworth House and Gardens –one of England’s finest stately homes.
Explore the house with all its unique treasures. Wander the 105 acres of gardens set against a backdrop of Peak District countryside. We return through the southern Peak District via Buxton.
