National Trust Properties
We are fortunate to be close to many lovely National Trust properties, where you can enjoy the magnificent homes and gardens. They tend to have yummy cafés too!

These are some of our favourites:
Hardwick Hall (pictured)
An Elizabethan house steeped in the history of one of the richest females of the Elizabethan era, Bess of Hardwick. Wonderful grounds for long and short walks.
SatNav: S44 5QJ
Sudbury Hall & Museum of Childhood
Once the home of the Vernon family, a magnificent hall with beautiful plasterwork and grand staircase. The Museum of Childhood is worth a visit whatever your age!
SatNav: DE6 5HT
According to the National Trust Kedleston Hall is an extravagant temple to the arts designed by the architect Robert Adam, but we don’t think this description does it justice, so don’t be put off!
SatNav: DE22 5JH
This austere building, the most complete Victorian workhouse in existence, was built in 1824 as a place of last resort for the destitute. Follow the stories of some of those unfortunate to live here in the 1840s.
