Must be the best kept stately houses in the country. Home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Well worth a visit when in Derby.
2 Dovedale with its ever-popular stepping stones.
A well known beauty spot on the river Dove and owned by the National Trust.
Free to visit and fun and accessible to everyone. Good parking and home made ice cream available too.
3 Matlock Bath.
Often described as like being at the seaside, but without the sea. There are river walks, cable cars and the Heights of Abraham to discover.
Always a great day out.
