Holiday – day 1

Day one was an hours drive up to Chatsworth House. I’ve been there before but the house was closed so I could only view the grounds. The house is very grand, huge high ceiling rooms. During WWII the house was used as a girls dormitory – C’s Gran stayed in the Duchess’s room!

After the house tour we ventured into the grounds, we were greeted early one by one huge feathery chicken:

I think he was only after food, but I didn’t hang around!

We then headed off through a “sensory garden”, God only knows why they were growing the biggest weed I’ve ever seen (it was taller than me!):

Thistle

I guess that one was there for “touch” 🙂

At least there was something nice for “sight”

We stopped for a sit down by the waterfall steps…

…then ended the day having lunch at the café before heading to the farmers market for some steak for tea.

    The breakfasts (and the views) are something else at the Farm Shop. Definitely worth a trip up on a Sunday morning.
