On the way up we stopped off at..................
Hardwick Old Hall and New Hall
We have never been to a National trust place with so long a drive to get to the house. Also it was SO busy, well in excess of 1,000 cars, no exaggeration! We thought there was only one property there but there was two, the old Hall and the New Hall. the old Hall reminded me of "Jane Eyre" at the end when Jane goes to find Mr Rochester but he is blind and his house burned down.
We are currently blogging from the Main Hall of the house as it is the only place that has WIFI and none of our dongles work with mobile internet.
Anais and Roman have been swimming and had two games of pool in the Main Hall.
