Calling Peak District Walkers

At the end of a strenuous day’s walking in the Peak District, The Hayloft at Ashford Grange is a perfect space to relax and unwind.   Across the courtyard from the main house, on the first floor of a separate building, it is accessed by two outside flights of steps and has its own stable door private entrance.

With full en suite facilities, superking bed (which can be configured as twin beds) and lounge area complete with TV, library and Scrabble table, The Hayloft is the perfect retreat for the more independently minded.  You can even sit on a rocking chair to put on/take off your boots and Peak District walkers will love it!

The Gardening Season is upon us

The gardening season is upon us and I have made a start, beginning with re-stocking the coffin planter below my kitchen window. The double primroses should flower for 4 months, the hellebores are very pretty and the Paperwhite English daffodils really fragrant. Cheers you up, doesn’t it?

Out and about photos

I stopped to take these photos of Rowsley from Beeley Moor and my side of the Derwent Valley from Salters Lane, Matlock when I was out and about last weekend.
