Hardwick Hall

I’m always looking for an interesting day out, and so decided to fit in another outing on the way back from our Peak District mini break. We called in at Hardwick Hall, our second National Trust visit after Longshaw, and had a fantastic time. It had all the […]

Ladybower Reservoir

Our second outing of our mini break was a stroll around Ladybower reservoir. Our B&B was just a few minutes drive away so it seemed like the perfect place for an easy walk. Finn had decided not to sleep so we needed some fresh air, but didn’t feel […]

Longshaw Estate

Last week we headed to the Peak District for a few days. It was kind of a mini honeymoon, but also just because we fancied a break after all the wedding craziness. Despite some unfavorable forecasts, it didn’t rain. I was secretly hoping I’d be able to dress […]

Buxton Country Park

A Walk up Kinder Scout

I have a confession, the reason for this will become clear later on, but the fact is I can’t use a compass. I was taught once, when I did my Duke of Edinburgh bronze award (unsurprisingly I never got any further) but I just used to make the […]
