Discovering the Peak District

Despite living only about 45mins away from the Peak District, I've never really explored it except to visit Chastworth House and walk around Bakewell for a few hours after delivering a wedding cake there years ago...

So when my other half suggested going away for a weekend to celebrate his 40th birthday, I booked us an Airbnb at a lovely little place in Grindleford and kept it as a surprise until we arrived!

And boy was he surprised...

Stoke Farm was absolutely stunning and we were recommended a 6 mile walk which took us through Grindleford, up to Higgir Tor and through Longshaw Estate. We had stunning weather throughout our stay and everyone we encountered was so helpful in suggesting places to eat and walk - we even stumbled upon a gorgeous Tea Room in Eyam and sampled the best Hot Chocolate I have ever had!
The moral of the story is that you really can't go wrong anywhere in the Peaks and we've already decided to find more Airbnb's to try in that area as the lure of escaping for an adults only weekend away is just too darn easy!
