A day off
What a day to take off.
We headed up to the Peak District. Based ourselves at the George Inn at Alstonfields.
We walk 6.5 miles alone the river Dove, up gypsy bank and along Wolfcote dale. The weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky but a slight frost had fallen overnight so the air was very crisp and clear.
It makes you feel good to be alive.
The views were stunning and the vivid autumnal colours were radiant.
We called into Alstonfields Manor and sampled their hospitality. Jo was, as always very welcoming, gave us a tour of the manor and a lovely cup of tea. We could easily have stayed as the rooms are beautiful, fire cosy and the views stunning but we had a lunch to enjoy at the George Inn Alstonfields.
It was a lovely day and we would highly recommend all elements of our day, just can't guarantee the weather.
