Lovely place though, and an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. I haven't been to the Peak District before and I have to say that it is bleak in places, but beautiful.
Hargate Hall isn't far from Buxton with its lovely Crescent
and some very nice little shops - not your usual High Street fare (although they are there as well), but nice individual establishments. I really enjoyed the craft section of the pavillion; lots of very talented people out there!
We tend to travel round with a map and explore; visit tourist information to get some ideas about what might interest us and where to go. But some places need no introduction or enquiry as to what you need to do there - we visited Bakewell and partook of some Bakewell Pudding!
Apologies for the quality of the photographs; it's the limitations of a camera phone!
