Just a little post to wish you a Merry Christmas.

Chatsworth House is a beautiful place to visit, but it can be quite expensive if you fancy wandering around the house itself or the stunning gardens. There is a cheaper way for locals to explore the area though, and that's by going to Chatsworth Park instead.

Hartington is a Derbyshire village that's one of my favourite places to pop to for a quiet wander.

 Peak Village is a shopping village in the Derbyshire Dales. What's it like to visit at the moment?

Of course, we're all hoping that 2021 is going to be a much, much better year for us all.

But, I wanted to discuss the gap in posting on this blog for such a long time (nearly a year, in actual fact!)

The whole point of me writing this blog in the first place is to celebrate all of the great things that Derbyshire has to offer. 

Except, I haven't, like most people, been able to explore most of it for a long time. Aside from a few wanders around Chatsworth Park, a visit to Chatsworth Gardens for my birthday last Summer, and a couple of walks around Matlock Bath, I haven't explored anywhere in Derbyshire!

A Derbyshire travel wish list for when things go back to 'normal':

  • Spend an afternoon browsing and buying books in Scarthin Books once again.
  • Treat myself to some more Blue John jewellery in Castleton.
  • Have fish and chips at Matlock Bath.
  • Take my camera up to Alport Heights (provided that it's re-opened).
  • Go to one of the Fabulous Places markets.
  • Go shopping in Derby again.
  • Take myself on a coffee shop crawl of the many ones I'm yet to visit.
  • Venture up to Bakewell and stuff my face with a Bakewell tart.

A tiny bit of good news:

In better news, I wanted to tell you that I've opened an Etsy shop! It's called The Derbyshire Paper Co. and I sell digital prints over there. If that sounds like something that you're interested in, you can find my shop here.
