Photos of Elvaston Castle

We are really lucky with where we live, 20 minutes in one direction and we are in the peak district, and 20 minutes in the other direction and we are in the centre of the city, which has some amazing parks and open spaces.

One of our very favourite places is Elvaston Castle. With beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife it is the perfect place to spend the day. I think the photos speak for themselves!

Sophie was very pleased to have mastered the play park! Shes getting so much more confident
Catch up Sophie!
We had lots of fun feeding the ducks and geese!
I love the contrast of woods and open spaces
One tired little girl!

Thanks for looking! x

  1. Aww lovely photos, hun. It really looks like a great place to spend the day at. Also, I have a soft spot for castles and manor houses, so this would be perfect for me. Must be the historian in me coming through ;)

    1. It certainly is, we are very lucky to live here, and I suppose we take it for granted a bit!

    1. Thanks for hosting! Trouble was she slept 20 minutes in the car and that was it, then refused to go to bed that night! Monkey ;)
