Matlock Staycation - Day 4

View Matlock 22 on InvictaMoto's travel map.

Today we decided to go to another National Trust house at Kedleston Hall. We knew that Reggie couldn't go in the house but that was okay. They have a refreshment truck and loads of walking trails.

First stop was coffee and then we set off on the short walk. It turned out very muddy and so we set off on the long walk that is all hard surfaced. Well until about 3 miles into it when we get down to the lake and there was deep mud. At least we had the right walking boots. Could have done with wellies for that section.


After a loo break where I managed to clean most of the mud off my boots, we had a spot of lunch. After the excesses of the last few days, we had a cheese and onion pasty between us. Reggie made do with some of his treats.

Now where? Back to Chatsworth? Why not.

We basically retraced our steps back past the turning to Birchover. The car park was packed. We found a space and togged up. A walk to look at the ornamental gates to the house and then down to get a look at the facade.


From there it was back to the Stables. Reggie to have his dinner and us to have a sit down and rest. The rugby on the TV to end the afternoon.

Tomorrow, we have to drive home. As we passed through Bakewell I stopped to fill the tank to ensure we start off with a full tank in the morning. Stories coming in on social media is that some clowns are panic buying petrol!
