Chatsworth & The High Peak
5 Days Half Board by Coach
Treat yourself to a wonderfully indulgent few days at this impressive four star hotel, and take in some of England’s finest unspoiled scenery at the same time. Shrigley Hall Hotel is situated on the edge of the Peak District and is surrounded by beautiful landscaped grounds and gardens. So, as a fitting compliment to our grand hotel base, we’ve included a visit to one of Britain’s most stately estates - Chatsworth House and Gardens - plus some stately sightseeing featuring the most beautiful scenery of the breathtaking Derbyshire High Peaks.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
• Stunning Peak District scenery • Chatsworth House • Snake Pass • Ladybower Reservoir • Bakewell • Castleton • Buxton
Full day: This morning we head into the Peak District and visit stately Chatsworth House. Known as the ‘Palace of the Peaks’ the interior rooms are treasure troves of priceless furniture and magnificent paintings. The landscaped gardens feature sculptures, mazes and waterworks including the famous Cascade which falls 600 feet down the hillside.
Full day: Today we discover the High Peak with a memorable journey over Snake Pass as it traverses the heart of the Peak District National Park between the peaks of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow Hill to the shores of Ladybower Reservoir – famed as the practice area for the WWII Dambuster crews. We continue to the favourite tourist centre of Castleton, surrounded by ‘showcaves’, where the famous Blue John Stone is mined.
Full day: This morning we visit Bakewell, a popular tourist centre, located on the River Wye. The many courtyards and independent shops (and bakeries featuring the famous Bakewell pudding!), make this a delightful place to spend some free time. Afterwards we visit the historic spa town of Buxton set 1000 feet up in the Peaks.
