A few days ago I returned from a trip away to the Peak District alongside my family and Chad, we stayed in a little holiday cottage in Matlock surrounded by a lovely, traditional stable yard and endless amounts of greenery it was so beautiful and the scenery alone provided such an element of peace.
We visited several places including The Heights of Abraham, Matlock Aquarium/Matlock Baths, we also enjoyed a Nerf Battle at Gulliver’s Kingdom! We also spent time exploring Matlock, completing Matlock’s Murder Mystery and trying out some of their delicious food!
Matlock itself has a lot to do for families and it really can please everyone. There’s plenty of places to take kids and many things to do as a family however it still has a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere which is perfect for a good get away.
We were so lucky with the weather, our holiday was full of beautiful blue skies and warmth from the beaming sun!
The highlight of my trip was definitely visiting The Heights of Abraham, not only was it beautiful there but there was so much to see and do. An exciting part of the day was braving the cable cars, I never truly believed that they would be that high up and seem that flimsy..but it was such a great experience and it definitely needs to be done when visiting Matlock.
The Heights of Abraham Mine
We explored the different mines at The Heights of Abraham and admired the amazing scenery whilst enjoying a picnic lunch!
I thought I would show you a few more photos I took throughout the week to give you an insight of our trip and what we got up too! All these photographs were taken on my Canon G7X Mark ii.
Me and Chad went exploring up the hills and it was so beautiful and peaceful, although it was a good form of Cardio!
I had to have a picture on this lovely Jubilee bridge when we were exploring Matlock!
Matlock Bath is such a beautiful area and perfect for photography!
If you are looking for somewhere in the UK fairly local to Lincolnshire then I would really recommend visiting the peak districts, there’s some lovely holiday cottages to rent out and there’s so much to see and do.
I hope you enjoyed an insight to what we got up to on holiday and I will be uploading the vlog that I made whilst we were there- so keep an eye out for that.
