  1. We stayed here over the MayDay weekend:

    Set on the outskirts of the Derbyshire village of Monyash, approx. five miles west of Bakewell, set in stunning scenery. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely return! The village pub, The Bulls Head served very nice food and a decent selection of beers to match

    There was a superb village Duck pond which was very peaceful and relaxing :)

    We walked from the village along The Limestone Way to Lathkill Dale itself, the scenery was stunning!

  8. We got stuck up the top field when we went it's a nice place. Lime stone walk is the only time I've worried when walking we where walking across the wide open field when a it's started to thunder and lighting struck the feild next to us you smell the ozone in the air it then rained upside down for the rest of the way back good times

  18. Ice cream shed was shut when we went past , one group of girl guilds/ DOE walked past looking like drowned rats right at the back was a girl dragging her tent behind her we found her poles 20 mins later by the time they made camp I bet that tent was a lot lighter than when she started o_O
