A Walk In The Peak District : Bakewell..

We love to take the children out for a walk in the Peak District. 

It take some planning though. 

Whenever we have a free day off with no school, work or jobs to be done and the weather is fine, a day out exploring is great. 

One of our favourite places we visit time and time again is Bakewell.

And it is only around a hour drive away.

At the weekend there is often some fun things happening on the show-ground and we always get distracted. This time we made plans not to shop for long!! (even though there was a cool vintage market on) and head for the hills.

No moaning about all the walking from the children. 

Just me!!

Wow I felt so unfit…

Lots of fun climbing the hill and seeing the amazing views..

My son took his bag but we forgot to take supplies of water and sweets, for energy!!

This little lamb was soooooo sweet..

Everyone found extra energy when we was near the bottom as a visit to the chip shop was promised..

After some energy drink, battered sausage and chips me and my daughter was ready for a another walk up the hill selfie…

    Sounds like a great day. Although I don't think I could do all that uphill walking either as very unfit! We used to go to Bakewell when I was a child, love the peak district. 🙂 #countrykids.x

    Nice to get out. Looks a lovely route to take. I always have an end of walk treat planned. Probably undoes all the good the walk does, but it never stops me. #CountryKids

    I really love Bakewall but have only been a handful of times when I'm visiting nearby with work. Looks like it's a really beautiful walk.
