Day One

Leaving the local area by coach this morning, head into the stunning landscape of the Peak District, where we will enjoy a short tour. From the high peaks of the north to the lowlands and dales in the south, this is a breathtakingly beautiful area with picturesque villages, bustling market towns and a fascinating historical heritage.

Day Two

Today begins with a short visit to Bakewell - home of the famous tart, an ancient five-arched bridge and fine range of interesting shops and cafes.

The highlight of the day, though, is our visit to Chatsworth where you'll be booked to make your way around the House at a specific time. As you wander from room to room you'll discover exquisite furniture, silver, tapestries and outstanding works of art - not to mention a few curiosities including a lace cravat carved from wood and an illusory painting of a violin hanging on a door.

After the tour, take a seat in the splendid surroundings of Chatsworth's 18th-century stables to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea including a range of dainty finger sandwiches, and a selection of homemade cakes and pastries. (Tea will be served at either 2pm or 3pm.)

After tea we'll start our journey home, and should be back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Northampton Single traveller
Time given to trips and time away from trips not the best. We could have done with more time in Bakewell but perhaps less in Matlock Bath

R A I N H A M...Kent Friends
Tour manager not very informative....long silent gaps , missed out on landmarks (eg the twisted spire of church in Chesterfield....she, Laura, should have advised passengers in advance in order that we had our cameras ready). ( have had other tour managers ensure this happened) she never once reminded us about wearing seat belts.
Too long a time in Matlock Bath... (Or, as your Final Itinerary details mentioned ..."visits to Matlock, Bath and BAKEWELL .......the comma led us to believe we were visiting MATLOCK AND BATH !!!! Strange choice ....dirty little town, not attractive. We arrived on the Sunday afternoon at just after 3.00....any "attractions" closed at 4.00 !!!
Bad planning
Laura was conspicuous by her absence when there was a long delay before the cream tea arrived in the Stables at Chatsworth House

Beckenham Kent Friends
Very good break but would have been nicer to spread over extra day as would have enjoyed bit more time in both Matlock and Bakewell. Bit too much time in coach for just two day trip.

Bexleyheath Family
I have been on a number of these short trips before, usually to Christmas markets.The whole of the first day was spent travelling and stopping to pick up passengers at service stations. The 'stop' was for an hour in Matlock Bath which on a Sunday is the local motorcycle meet!! This was really disappointing as you usually stop somewhere pleasant for lunch and an explore. The hotel was very good but again we arrived with just 1hour until our evening meal. This left very little time to enjoy the pool. The 3course meal was of a good standard and the rooms were very comfortable.

Dover Kent Single traveller
I would only reccommend this trip if you lived from Maidstone to up North.
It was an extremely long and tiring trip if you lived down South, Dover , in my case. We were on the road for about six hours up and same back. There were three other pickup points after Maidstone where we from South picked up the main coach.
Consequently the three places we were down to visit we had very little time to wander around and take in the pretty views. This was a dissappointment and I certainly won't book for further long trips with all the pickup points we experienced.
