Select Horse Drawn Canal Cruise & The Peak District
5 Day Select Holiday
This pleasantly varied tour combines splendid sightseeing with a vintage horse drawn canal boat trip and visit to an 18th century cotton mill. We explore the villages and market towns of the Peak district with visits to gorgeous Buxton, home to landmarks such as the Pavilion Gardens and Poole’s Cavern – a two-million-yearold limestone cave and picturesque Castleton, the only place in the world you can find the semi-precious stone Blue John. Other delights include the market town of Bakewell, home of the eponymous pudding and grand old houses and the spa town of Matlock, with its small independent shops and cafés.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Horse Drawn Canal Trip & Masson Mills Museum
We step aboard our 70-foot heritage narrow boat and our Clydesdale horse pulls us effortlessly along the Cromford Canal towards the Leawood Pumphouse. Listen to the bespoke commentary as we learn about the history of the canals and the families who lived and worked on board. Afterwards we head to Masson Mills, the finest surviving and best preserved example of an Arkwright cotton mill.
Matlock & Bakewell
Matlock is home to the Peak Rail preserved railway and Hall Leys Park with its boating lake and flower displays. We continue to the market town of Bakewell perhaps best known for its unique and delicious pudding.
Castleton & Buxton
Castleton is one of the most beautifully situated villages in the Peak District with fabulous views of breathtaking limestone and gritstone landscapes. We also spend time in beautiful Buxton, a spa town that has been attracting visitors since the fourteenth century.
