Derbyshire Day 1 - Chatsworth House (30th October 2012)

The Half-Term holidays began on Monday 29th October, and on Tuesday 30th, we drove to Derbyshire for an overnight trip. We went to Chatworth House gardens and had a lovely day wandering round, and taking in the gorgeous scenery.

Tree growing out Harry's head!

With Halloween the next day, there were pumpkins hidden around the gardens, plus these ones in the middle of the maze!

Checking out the map to search for more pumpkins.

Standing next to the fountain and feeling the spray!

Trying to push each other in!

We also walked through the vegetable gardens, and then up to the tower on the hill, with the cannons outside.

Driving through the hills at dusk on the way to our Travelodge in Glossop.

Our Travelodge was a really new one, and it seemed to be completely empty!

Lucy in particular loved our hotel for some reason - she says it's her favourite hotel... This is her after doing cartwheels through the very wide corridor outside our room. I think she liked it so much because there was a lovely wide window sill, which she sat on and looked out at the hills.
