Me and the hubby are hoping to move to Derbyshire in the next couple of years. We spend a lot of time there at weekends, especially in summer and now we have a dog. So today we had a drive around a couple of the places we having been thinking about moving to.
While we were there we visited Elveston Castle again. You can see at the back in the photo below, it’s more a hall then a castle and is currently covered in scaffolding.
There is a church and formal gardens, a Moorish chapel (which we didn’t get around to seeing……
And of coarse a cafe (very important for us British). It was very busy but everything is home made and there is loads of room outside for dogs and their owners. It only cost £3.50 for a cup of tea, KitKat, scone and a can of diet coke.
There is no entrance fee but you do have to pay for parking which was £2.70 for four hours. Despite there being tons of people, dogs and horses there was plenty of room for everyone to park. We looked at the map of the place as we were leaving and we only covered about a third of the actual site so I think another return visit is called for!
