"Not between derby and alton - but Bakewell is beautiful, or buxton"
**JaNe** :
"ooo, i'm from Derbyshire...Chesterfield infact. It isn't all 'derbyshire-y' round here, but it isn't that bad. Castleton is nice, Bakewell and Chatsworth are nice too if you want a villagey feel!"
amio dora :

"Depends on your budget, from hostels, to B&B's and various grades of hotel. There's a Youth Hostel Association hostel at Ilam Hall in Derbyshire, which is about 9 miles from Alton. An old converted manor house, in beautful gardens. I know this is possibly a bit more basic than some want, but the area is stunning. Costs £16.00 per adult. Closer than the 20 odd miles from Derby to Alton. Nearby in Ashbourne, is a farm Bed and Breakfast, from about £26 pppn. Otherwise, Chesterfield is a good spot, cinema, shops, famous twisted spire church etc, as someone as mentioned. Was there today, with a great market selling bricabrac, fresh produce etc. If not, head south from Derby to Lichfield, 20 minutes. Fantastic 3 spired cathedral and small quiet, pretty old city. Some similarities to Chesterfield, but much much more interesting. There's wonderful Swinfen Hall hotel, from about £125, in 200 acres: Or stay right by the cathedral at from £26pppn. From Lichfield to Alton is around 30 minutes driving. Otherwise, browse accomodation around the Staffordshire and Derbyshire Peak District Good luck! Rob"

I want to rekindle the romance with my man by having a romantic weekend away. I'd like it to be posh nosh, 4 to 5 star rating and a place where we can be just in our own world. If anyone has any suggestions on where we can go. The budget is not an issue. But it must be in the Derbyshire area or anywhere county close by?

manchester*gal :
"anychance you can make it to the lake district..thats so romantic and theres a fab hotel there were the rooms are all themed."
Jamie :
"Yes the Lake District is surprisingly.."
noitall U.K. :
"Derbyshire it is not, but the fish hotel Buttermere, lake district beside Ennerdale"
Veronica Alicia :
"Contact Derbyshire Tourist Board and ask them to send you some literature and brochures. For posh nosh, check out "The Good Food Guide" for the area. If you are passing through Staffordshire, south of Burton on Trent, there is good food to be had at "The Foresters" in Yoxall village. We stayed just outside of Buxton last November and it was quite chilly with frost all over the Dales; fabulous for photography. Did a tour around Chatsworth which would have been better in the Spring or Summer when the gardens would have been more welcoming."

Oh, stop whining. So what if the likely GOP nominee believes in restraints on free speech, higher taxation, bigger government, open borders, and 100-year U.S. armies of occupation everywhere from Albania to Zimbabwe? Romney believes in those things too — at least, he does when he's in a room full of people that want him to.
