I am looking at hiring a car at Heathrow and driving up to the Peaks District in mid-late September. Not sure how long I need to fit in everything I would like to do.
I am a keen amateur photographer so taking pictures and wandering cute villages/towns is definitely on my list. I want to visit Lyme Park and Chatsworth. I understand I would need a full day for Chatsworth.
Bakewell seems to be a good place to base myself with a range of accommodation options, and pubs/eateries for dinner.
- How many nights would you suggest?
- Is staying in Bakewell a good idea, or is there anywhere else you would recommend I stay?
- Are there any particularly picturesque places I should visit or attractions in the area you recommend?
