Derby Days

Way back in the calendar.....last Christmas in fact myself and Mr H were delighted to receive a mini break voucher as one of our Christmas gifts. We are VERY LUCKY big thanks to my Dad and Stepmom. XX
We stayed here in Hilton Derbyshire.
The property was a farm with a lavender garden.

We were able to pick fresh lavender flowers.

The room where we stayed was beautiful, the food facilities and welcome are well worth a visit.
Check out the website here, The Lavender Patch

We visited Calke Abbey. NT property.
The gardens were beautiful.

We then journeyed on to the Ferrers Craft Centre.
Where we caught up with what we thought was an old friend.
Sadly it was not Betty though.
There were occasional blue skys......
fantastic sunsets.

The pekin's were my new friends.
My favourite was the Lavender one.
We even cycled along the Tissington Trail.

Where there were miles of Derbyshires hillsides to see.
Now the decorating will resume.
Thanks again for the mini break. X
