Mills and Dales - Day Three

Our final day in the Derbyshire Dales was spent doing something I have always wanted to do and that was to walk along Dovedale. Whenever we have visited this area before the weather hasn't been good or we haven't had time so on this break I was determined that we would finally get round to it - whatever the weather!

Luckily the weather was on our side this time


No, we weren't brave enough to cross the stepping stones but we did watch a few people get their feet soggy!

After our walk there was just enough time for coffee and cake so we headed for nearby Ilam Park, a National Trust owned property (with a lovely tea shop)

A latte and a slice of carrot cake later we just had time to soak up some more fantastic views before heading home.


  1. Those shots are great. Never made it there but certainly on my to do list.

  2. Perfect place - So glad you had a great time. xxxx

  3. Hi vicky thank you for thinking of my Mum in your last comment. She is so much happier now.
    Dovedale is just beautiful, we loved it there. We had a wonderful walk down but when we came back the place was so busy, glad we were the early birds! The Dales are lovely I would love to go back there oneday.
