See & Do
Derbyshire is a year round destination brimming with lovely scenery, stately homes such as Chatsworth and appealing towns like Bakewell, Castleton and Matlock. There are plenty of scenic walking trails, so do take some decent walking shoes (or wellies) for outdoor pursuits.
If you're planning some home cooking, farmers' markets are a great source of local produce, home-grown veggies locally reared meat and free range eggs. Regular markets are held at Shottle, Belper and Matlock – your hosts will be happy to provide details.
