Itinerary

23rd December

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.

Christmas Eve – Eyam & Bakewell

Crossing the Peak District National Park, we head first to Eyam, known as the ‘Plague Village’ due to the events of 1665-66 when the plague was brought from London to this tiny community. The village has craft workshops, a gift shop and tea rooms to enjoy before we continue on to the beautiful Market Town of Bakewell, set on the banks of the River Wye. Best known for its Bakewell Pudding, the town boasts an ancient five arched bridge, riverside walks, independent shops and cafés – it makes for a lovely Christmas Eve spot. On our return to Buxton, we have free time to explore the town at leisure or do some last-minute Christmas shopping.

Christmas Day

Christmas Day is a lovely day of leisure at our hotel, including a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings followed by Christmas cake, tea and coffee. A light buffet dinner is served in the evening.

Boxing Day – Matlock Bath & Ashbourne

We take another scenic drive through the Peak District National Park on our way to the picturesque spa town of Matlock Bath, set in the beautiful gorge of the River Derwent with wooded hillsides and rocky limestone crags. Our next stop is the Market Town of Ashbourne with its historic buildings, independent shops, cobbled marketplace and hidden alleys.

27th December

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.

Public areas are larger and include lounge seating, bar and restaurant with good quality food served either buffet style or waiter service.
