Anyone who visits my pages will know I love a good mooch around a stately home. This has absolutely nothing (everything) to do with my love of a good bodice ripper…

My imagination goes wild imagining clandestine couplings by candlelight, hot body contact during the waltz, orgys in the orangery….

Hardwick Hall is all I hoped it would be, period, elegant, historical and, it has the most amazing kitchens! Definitely my favourite part is always the kitchens…. and the kitchen garden… don’t make me chose between those two.

Chesterfield was our first stop on the way north. We didn’t visit Chatsworth so that’s still on the list but we did wander around Bakewell and Matlock. We had a Bakewell tart tasting with the three different common types of tart… got to love a common tart!

I hope you enjoyed the photos, I’ll post more another time.
