The Snow Sisters
Hopefully this will be the only sign of ice over the Bank Holiday. The Snow Sisters will be at Matlock Farm Park on Bank Holiday Sunday & Monday to enchant visitors with their fabulous singalong shows. The farm park also has a great outdoor play area.
The house doesn't open until the 18th May, but the award-winning estate farm shop is now back open so you can pay a visit when walking around the grounds of Chatsworth. Here are a selection of walks around Bakewell and the Chatsworth estate.
Go for a walk
Although the ‘stay at home’ rule ended on 29 March, many restrictions remain in place. People are advised to minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes.
However, there are a number of walks available on our website, including this selection of walks from our archive.
Don't forget, for outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) the Rule of 6, still applies. This means either 6 people or 2 households are allowed to meet outdoors.
