I can’t fully explain the buzz we felt at the end of Sunday. The four of us sat on a picnic rug at the bottom of a huge hill, by the river, exhilarated, grubby and full of chocolate cake, sharing a huge sense of satisfaction after a Dovedale family walk. The perfect situation.
Dovedale in the Peak District is a place we go back to again and again. I’ve blogged about the snowy walk my Dad and I took there. I’ve also blogged about visiting Ilam and staying at the amazing caravan site. Whatever the season, the Peak District is a great place to visit as a family.
The National Trust invited us on a Secret Walk with Zoe, the White Peak National Trust Visitor Experience Officer, Simon the Ranger and Alfie his dog. This is the Dovedale family walk we took through the valley, normally we’ve started at Ilam, but Milldale has so much to offer for families too.
