We've got a couple of days in the Peak District, the 1st day is set I think, we are going to Lyme Park to take a few photos, then to Chatsworth hopefully arriving when the gardens open at 10:30 and then if time permits a stop at Haddon Hall. We are overnighting in Sheffield (meeting friends for dinner) and anticipate that we will have a little time to do something else before the long drive to Newbury (Highclere the next morning).
I thought my poor husband would like a break from the historic houses and Mr. Darcy and thought stopping at one of the caves might be interesting but I can't seem to figure out which is the best option for us. At 1st I thought Speedwell because of the boat ride but then the TA reviews for it aren't all positive. Might Treak Cliff be a better option? Or Poole's? We have no mobility or claustrophobic issues which are some of the Speedwell complaints but it also seems a fair number of people just don't think it's worth the money.
After the cavern, we'll be hitting the road for Newbury and may drive through a little of the Cotswolds (Moreton in Marsh or Upper/Lower Slaughter?) unless there's something else up in the Peak District. This is all on a Saturday and Sunday in August so I am anticipating a little bit of traffic and crowds, can't be helped.
