Our good quality Holiday Inn is located 5 miles from the centre of Sheffield with facilities including a 17 metre swimming pool. It’s an ideal base to explore one of England’s most beautiful and historic areas with rugged hills and lush farmland. During our stay we will be joined by a tour guide for a fantastic excursion in to the Peak District including the Spa town of Buxton and Bakewell.
Collected from your local pick up point around 7.30/8.30am we have comfort stops as required before arriving at the hotel late afternoon.
After a full English Breakfast we head for the nearby Brodsworth Hall & Gardens. Catch a glimpse of Victorian life at this wonderfully preserved country house. Cared for by English Heritage, enjoy the beautiful interiors and wonderful gardens. Designed in the Italianate style of the 1860s, the 'grand rooms' on the ground floor recall its Victorian heyday with many of the original furnishings. In the Billiard Room, you can spot the mummified hooves of the 1855 Doncaster Cup winner. Don't miss the cavernous Victorian kitchen with its impressive cooking range and the cosier 'Aga kitchen' and scullery with the original housekeeper's chair.
The gardens are spectacular - home to a collection of grand gardens in miniature, filled with colourful seasonal plantings and displays. Take in romantic views of the formal gardens and pleasure grounds from the restored summerhouse, and enjoy the period bedding plants in the Flower Garden. Don’t forget to visit the newly restored Target Garden, Victorian garden privy and Game Larder. (Entrance included).
Superb day out today as we are joined by our excellent local guide to explore Britain’s first National Park - the spectacular Peak District. From sweeping valleys and heathland to limestone cliffs, forests and shimmering lakes the area is a joy to explore. The region is dotted with historic country estates and charming towns and villages including the elegant Georgian Spa towns of Buxton and Bakewell.
Travel home with stops as required - returning to the local area around 5.00pm
