How long have you been in this part of the country?

Waving bye-bye to our lovely cottage overlooking the bay, we moved on from a week in Robin Hood’s Bay, to Derbyshire, where we stayed a couple of nights at The Rambler Inn, which was a very comfy stay, with some very friendly staff.

My main reason for guiding the family towards this part of the country was to be able to visit this property.

The exteriors of this stately home were used for filming a rather well-known period drama almost 20 years ago. Do you recognise it?

Another attraction of the area was the beautiful scenery. We’d not visited the area before and were astounded by the beauty of the landscape. This was taken from Rushup Edge, which we climbed after stopping the car to admire the view from the road. It was an even better view from the top.

It seemed the perfect weather for these para-gliders.
