Day 1

Your holiday starts with a pick-up from home by one of the vehicles in our Door-to-Door service and this will bring you through to our coach. Once everyone is on board, we'll make our way to Huntingdon with suitable comfort breaks during the journey. We'll aim to arrive late afternoon to give you time to unpack and freshen up before dinner

Day 2

At the northern tip of the National Park is an area known as the High Peaks. To get there, we travel over Snake Pass, with its stunning elevated scenic vista to Ladybower Reservoir where the Dambusters trained during WWII. Further on is Derwent Reservoir, with the ruins of Derwent Village hidden beneath its waters. When the water is low you can hear the eerie sounds of the church bells ringing! On to Eyam the plague town from 1665, with its museum and then Castleton, home of the legendary Blue John Caverns, said to be the finest in the UK and beloved by Queen Victoria.

Day 3

Morning free to relax, have a spa, take a swim or visit nearby Derby. After lunch a half day tour exploring the eastern side of the Peak District. What better way to see the scenery glide past is by joining the nostalgic 25 minutes steam train journey through sweeping Derbyshire countryside between Rowsley and Matlock. We stop off at the popular Matlock Bath, nestling alongside the River Derwent in a steep and beautiful gorge, with a number of attractions, walks, shops and café's.

Day 4

Entering the Peak District we stop off in Bakewell, with a visit to the original Bakewell Pudding shop, where the famous tart is still made. The afternoon is spent at nearby Chatsworth House and Gardens - reported as one of England's finest stately homes. Explore the house with all its unique treasures. Wonder the 105 acres of gardens set against a backdrop of Peak District countryside. We return through the southern Peak District
