Have you ever been to Peak District being absolutely certain it is actually Lake District you’re going to visit? Goooood, me neither.
It was just before bed time when we both use as few words as possible to communicate, that we received an invitation to go on a weekend away to Peak District National Park. Laura and Daniel, our friends whose bohemian style wedding we photographed last year are always itching to explore and they’re great company on the roads.
The next couple of days, I was searching away “Must See Places in Lake District” and ” Best Things To Do in Lake District Park.” I am sure you got the idea by now.. That’s why we shouldn’t make any decisions after a certain hour, but we’re so happy we said Yes to this trip!
The Peak District National Park is not really known for its high peaks, but for the vast fields and beautiful walks in nature. With roads and imposing architecture from the Roman times, it’s a sight not to be missed when in England.
We walked on the footsteps of Mr. Darcy (sadly nowhere to be found) down at Chatsworth House , the setting for a recent adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
A proof of incredible human ingenuity was the Ladybower Reservoir in the Upper Derwent Valley, also the location for filming of The Dam Busters (thought you’d love to know).
A weekend filled with lush landscapes and unknown paths to discover, the feel of actual snow, questionably good food around the area, great talks and a most friendly AirBnb host who made the best muffins for us all! Still hoping to go to Lake District one day soon, though.
