Day 1

Home pick up.

Arrive early evening near Derby.

Day 2

Spas and Dambusters.

We travel through the Derbyshire Dales to the delightful spa town of Buxton for a lunch break. Buxton was founded by the Romans, who built baths to use the warm thermal waters. In the afternoon, we travel via Snake Pass and Featherbed Top, passing Ladybower Reservoir, where the ‘Dambusters’ practiced their low-level flying, to picturesque Castleton, the ‘Gem of the Peak District’, for a tea break.

Day 3

Discover Bakewell.

We take a morning return ride on the Peak Railway to Matlock. We continue to Bakewell, home of the famous pudding. The fine spire of All Saints Church looks down on the town, where there are some grand old houses, notably the Market Hall, The Old Town Hall and the Almshouses on South Church Street. The ancient five arched bridge is much painted by artists.

Day 4

Magnificent Chatsworth.

One of the most glorious stately homes in England is a treasure trove of modern and historic artefacts. Wander around the three floors where you can see magnificent displays of art, furniture, sculptures and paintings housed in ornately decorated rooms. There is just as much to see outside with 1000 acres of gardens described by Alan Titchmarsh as 'one of the best and most vibrant gardens in Britain', with the Emperor Fountain a celebrated feature.

Day 5

Homeward journey.

We enjoy a farewell lunch at Moore Place Hotel in Apsley Guise (two courses with tea/coffee included).
