These are some of our favourite people and places....
Mum's Motors Our suggested taxi service for you if you need one-Heidi is lovely! Her telephone number is 07815 572200.
Era of Leek, where we get a lot of our furniture and all sorts of other interesting stuff.
Getliffe's Yard, Leek. All kinds of wonderful things to see here.
Nigel the butcher, in Ashbourne, for the bacon that Sam's Eggs deserve.
Denstone Farm Shop. Obviously.
Sally Montague Hair and Spa, if you aren't. Tessa's favourite place, after Nigel the butcher's.
Norbury Church, astonishingly beautiful-especially the stained glass.
The Bull's Head, Alton. Good local pub and food too-often there's a band on!
The George, Alstonefield. Award-winning pub.
Walks around Denstone for you to print out, and some information about the village.
Emma's cookshop, Uttoxeter. David's other favourite place, after the Hartington Cheese Shop.
The Black Lion, Consall Forge. Dog-friendly, great beer, a good canalside walk and trains too.
Churnet Valley Railway. Talking of trains..
Hetty's Teashop, for cake and boat trips also, surprisingly.
Hartington Cheese Shop. My word, what a shop. On the Ashbourne to Buxton road.
Lud's Church and the Roaches. One of Dara's favourite walks.
Ellastone Bridge, Dara's other favourite walk. Go to see the salmon leaping in late October, at the weir.
Nelson's gin, made in Ashbourne by a friend of ours!
The Ashbourne Bakehouse, on the market square in Ashbourne-the best bread you've ever had.
The Hole at Fole, which is what happens when 4,000 tons of high explosives go off all at once. The site of the world's biggest non-nuclear explosion.
