Six days in Yorkshire and Derbyshire

Jump to last reply

Hello, we have received an invitation to join friends at Chatsworth House in Bakewell, Derbyshire in the second week of September.
My husband and I plan to take the ferry from mainland Europe to Newcastle-upon-Tyne and from there drive South taking a few days. We are not familiar with that part of the UK so all advice re. places to visit, to stay and to eat is most welcome.

The few places to visit we have on our list are: Durham, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield and (presumably on our way back North) the city of York.

In an earlier life we were keen walkers but unfortunately recent back problems are preventing us from taking long hikes. We would like to sample some of either the Yorkshire Moors (will the heather still bloom around that time of year I wonder) or the Yorkshire Dales. All information or suggestions welcome.
Finally, Bakewell is in the middle of the Peak District. Aside from Chatsworth here are many historic houses to visit as I understand. Here too all suggestions, tips and trics from my Fodorite friends are much appreciated.
