I spent last weekend in the Peak District with two friends and our bicycles. It was a truly super way to escape London; the sun was shining and nature was at its best. We stayed at the Fernydale B&B which is a delightful farmhouse with hearty cooked breakfast and comfortable rooms – thoroughly recommended. We cycled just under 50 miles per day and soon realised that the Peak District is named like that for a reason…
Staying on a working dairy farm is also an experience, for all those that complain about 7am starts in London try milking cows at 5.45am! Needless to say I was fast asleep but there in spirit. All in all a super trip and a great way to clear the mind of every day stress and chores.
