Last weekend we took a trip to Bakewell in the Peak District. .
We packed the car up with everybody’s bikes, loads of blankets-it was really cold-Hats, gloves, scarfs etc and disappeared for the day.
We headed toward Ashbourne (25 minutes from us) and then on into the Peak District, passed Dovedale, passed the Bentley Brook and the Tissington Trail and onto to Tagg Lane Dairy. We were aiming for this place because we’d brought some of their raw milk on a stay in Hartington a few years ago and it was guuuurd. But now they have a lovely little cafe there as well, which we weren’t expecting. We stocked up on milk (it was a cold day so it was safe in the car) then visited the cafe where the kids all requested an ice cream- before lunch and in winter!!!! My mummy senses kicked in and I suggested that we miss it- but Dad power won and three happy children sat and enjoyed real creamy dairy ice cream made from raw milk produced on that very farm.
Onto Bakewell, and a quick wander around the shops, we picked a few children’s books from a charity shop, fed the ducks, ate some chips (the kids did well considering the ice cream) and read some of the padlocks on the lovelock Bridge.
Our next stop was the Monsal Trail, where we unloaded the bikes and headed in the direction of the Monsal viaduct. We made it there and back, but wow were we a bit muddy, luckily there was a free jet wash to rinse the bikes and the blankets mentioned earlier took a hit from our muddy bums. .
We enjoyed a lovely sunset on the drive home, and arrived back all sleepy from so much fresh air. A perfect family day out.
An great idea for a day trip if you are staying in our yurts. You can hire bikes at the Monsal Trail so don’t need to worry about bringing your own.

In my home I have all three types of shiplap (real shiplap, faux 1/4” plywood shiplap, and sharpie shiplap). After visually comparing them all in person, you can barely notice the difference between all the options. So why not do the easiest/cheapest option if it looks the same?! Added the faux shiplap look with just a single sharpie and yard stick. Total cost $5. Plus it adds no extra weight to the camper. I’d say that’s a win win. .
Caption from @divineontheroad I was on the road and constantly moving ALL of last year without ever digging to the bottom of my storage benches or really even cleaning out the corners of my van (which was very much needed). So we’ve been taking a bit of a breather in Tahoe with @theasherhouse to reset and enjoy these last couple weeks of staying put. I never realize how important it is to slow down until I’m actually doing it. For now, the plan is to explore California until it starts to warm up and then head all the way to Alaska 🙌🏼😭 My goal is to move as slow as possible to soak up everything throughout the PNW and British Columbia. I’ve never been north of Portland so I’m SUUUPER excited to see what this year in crazy, new places will bring.
Travelers to Morocco are often drawn by the enchanting cities like Marrakech and Casablanca, but the true magic happens outside of the bustling epicenters. Although the nearest large city (Marrakech) sits about 10 hours away by car or bus, making the trek to the Sahara is worth it to really see the Morocco that most tourists overlook—like the snowy Atlas Mountains.
