chatsworth house and bakewell

13 July 2012

These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago when my new camera was brand new. I wish I could tell you that I understand how to use it a bit better now but no I'm still using it on automatic mode! And still clueless about photo editing oops!

It was such a lovely day that day, we walked to Chatsworth House from Bakewell which we discovered is just a 45minute bus ride from us. Not included in these photos was the amazing Bakewell pudding we bought and devoured. So much better than the nasty Bakewell tarts you buy in shops - the real thing doesn't have an inch thick layer of too-sweet icing on top. Just yummy almondy goodness. 

We couldn't believe our luck when we saw the deer. Believe it or not I've never actually seen a deer up close before, the only time I've seen one is in a flash as they run across country roads when you're in the car. These were so cute and really tame, made me want to watch Bambi again!

The last couple of photos were taken of a little village in the Chatsworth Estate called Edensor. After watching a documentary about Chatsworth House on the bbc not so long ago I was really keen to take a little wander round the village as it looked so pretty. Even though it was raining it didn't disappoint - love the bunting and the home-made goodies. 

I'll be posting some photos from our trip to Wales soon.


  1. The last deer photo is lovely. You must have been so happy you managed to capture that.

  2. Awww your deer are so happy and chubby. We have scrawny ones but they're everywhere!
