Things to do this season
A Weekend in Derbyshire
Between the M1 and the moors lie the manor houses and market towns which were once the domain of a remarkable Tudor woman, Bess of Hardwick. Stay on her Hardwick estate and explore this diverse county on a history-inspired weekend away.
Walking Guide: Bolsover Castle to Sutton Scarsdale
Facing each other across a valley, Bolsover Castle and the ruin of Sutton Scarsdale Hall seem very different. Discover the landscape which connects them on the 7 mile countryside walk.
A weekend in the East Midlands
For a weekend away, there are castles, houses and museums to explore in the East Midlands. Stay at Kirby Hall’s peacock cottage and explore the history around every corner of this county.
