SNOWDROPS & HARDWICK WINTER GARDENS

National Trust Members Discount

Impressive snowdrop displays are one of the natural delights of winter and there is nothing better on a clear crisp day than a stroll through the carpets of Snowdrops and Aconites in the grounds of Hopton Hall. We also include a visit to Hardwick Hall which boasts a varied and interesting year round garden.

The Hallmark Derby Mickleover Court is a four star contemporary hotel located on the outskirts of Derby. You can be sure of receiving a warm welcome and great service. All rooms have excellent facilities and there is a lift, swimming pool and sauna in the hotel.

Itinerary

Friday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to Derbyshire where we settle into our hotel before dinner.

Saturday This morning we visit Chesterfield, the historic market town with the crooked spire. Later we visit Hardwick Hall, one of Britain’s greatest Elizabethan houses. This mansion was first created by the formidable ‘Bess of Hardwick’ and is a testament to the strength of her power and that of her descendants since. Winter brings it’s own beauty to Hardwick gardens as they display a magnificence through the bare frames of mature garden trees.                                              

Sunday Our day begins at Hopton Hall which boasts one of the finest displays of Snowdrops and Aconites, which transforms the woodland floor into a carpet of white petals. Wander through the gardens before warming up in the café. In the afternoon we travel into the beautiful Peak District and visit the attractive town of Buxton, famous for its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture.   

Monday After breakfast we make our way back to Cornwall arriving home during the evening.
