Winter in the Peak District, Derbyshire

Hello, I know it’s Saturday teatime and the last thing you’d expect me to be doing is writing a blog post. The thing is, it’s a form of therapy for me sometimes. My husband is snoozing and I was just thinking about my trip out earlier.

Yesterday was my husband Barry’s birthday so instead of mooching around at home, I decided to book us a motorhoming weekend on a rural farm in the heart of the Peak District. It’s so beautiful and peaceful here at Dale Farm Rural Campsite in Great Longstone. Last night saw us enjoying good old fashioned home made pub grub at The Crispin in the village just several minutes walk away from the campsite – a beautiful pub so friendly and welcoming with good food and service! It really was second to none. It’s snowy and cold here but we used to always, many moons ago, go caravanning in winter. We love to walk during these months as you don’t get eaten alive by pesky midges 🤣🤣. Instead you get covered in mud, slip in the snow but most of all have a good giggle about how cold it is! So today we took a walk of approx 4 miles and headed out towards the Longstone Trail. It was very snowy and some parts bleak but it didn’t stop us from enjoying it and taking in the sights. Even I made a mini snowlady just to make the next person have a little giggle walking past it! Such fun. Here’s a few photos taken with my iPhone of my journey today and even a selfie or two!
