For the first part of our journey to the UK, click here.
After 4 busy days in London, we took a train to Sheffield, checked into our hotel and rested up a bit. Then we caught the bus that took us to Chatsworth in the Peaks District of England. Chatsworth is the estate used as Pemberley in the 2005 remake of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. This is definitely one place I would love to visit again. I think you’ll understand why shortly.
When we got to the gate, I couldn’t pass up the chance to photo this.
The last room before the gift shop and exit was a room full of statues. Enjoyed them as well as the floor and benches and stands the statues were on.

We had reservations for tea. It was lovely with tea, scones, finger sandwiches and desserts.
Not only was the house magnificent, the grounds were glorious! Getting out into the green spaces was very therapeutic, especially after the busyness of London. I could have stayed for several more hours. Peaceful, enchanting, serene, idyllic.

If you ever get the chance to visit the UK, I highly recommend this stop on your way. Next time, I am going to try to stay in the Peaks district. Maybe in Matlock or Ashford in the Water.
