Thank you for a great week, relaxed and refreshed in a wonderful location. Great walking and wonderful cycling. Brae, our Border Collie loves the sheep, but even after a week couldn’t work out why they all visited to say hello! We’ll certainly be back. Best tearoom, Tissington Village, and the food at the Saracens Head was excellent.
