A quick jaunt

Last weekend on our way back from Cheshire, we detoured through the Peak District. Any excuse to get in a quick visit and we'll be there. It would have been rude not to! We thought it would be good to have lunch and a little wander around Bakewell as a mid trip pit stop. It had been raining all morning in Cheshire, so we weren't expect the glorious beauty that was to seen in the High Peak. The snow covered landscape was truly spectacular. Boy oh boy how I love this part of the UK. By the time we got to Bakewell, there was no snow to be seen. We had lunch in the Bakewell Pudding Shop - two breakfasts with the best Oatcakes and then we had a wander around the shops before heading back for Norfolk. The route home took us passed Chatsworth and Calver, a completely added bonus - so I caught a glimpse of the house and got to purchase a few lovely Easter things from the Derbyshire Craft Centre. It might not have been a very long visit, but it was completely and utterly worth it.

It may have been a quick visit but it sounds like you made more than the most of your time!

A great way to make the most of your trip. It is beautiful in the Peak District :) It snowed again on Wednesday and even after a night and day of heavy rain, there are still lots of patches of lying snow around, especially on the moors.

I really enjoyed seeing you photos :)
