Day 2 A visit to Renishaw Hall and Gardens. On arrival we have included tea/coffee with mini pastries. Renishaw Hall can be viewed by guided tour only, as it is still very much a lived in family home and you

Free time follows to explore the Italianate gardens where you can stroll through the woods to the lakes and enjoy the beautiful views. Make sure you visit the Sitwell Museum and learn more about the family that has owned Renishaw for almost 400 years.
Day 3 You will travel to the edge of the Peak District to Matlock for some free time, before joining the Peak Railway for a single nostalgic journey back in time through the Derbyshire countryside to Rowley. You will then be taken to Bakewell, idyllically situated on the banks of the River Wye and well known for the ‘Bakewell Pudding’
Day 4 Today you will enjoy a scenic drive into the stunning Peak District, by way of Leek and Whaley Bridge to Glossop, before travelling along the Snake Pass to Ladybower Reservoir taking in some breath-taking views along the way (subject to the Pass being open) and on to Castleton for some free time before returning to hotel.
Day 5 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey.
