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

Treasures of the peaks
Join us to see the magnificent rooms and priceless treasures of Chatsworth House, to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea in the beautiful surroundings of the House's former stables, and to discover the dramatic moorlands, limestone dales, and pretty villages of the Peak District.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
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.
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.

Departures in 2016 will visit Matlock Bath on Day One instead of touring the Peak District.
Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)
On some departures we may visit Bakewell on Day One and take the tour of the peak District on Day Two.
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day. Please note that Chatsworth are unable to offer gluten-free teas.
The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. The tour of Chatsworth involves quite a lot of walking and several flights of stairs. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
