If Derbyshire is your next vacation,
Let me suggest at that destination,

Lots of lovely touches
Just to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Glendon. The room was lovely- very comfortable and spotless. The breakfasts were delicious- spoilt for choice. Lots of lovely touches- flapjacks on arrival, wide range of walking books and maps for ideas of where to go. It’s a beautiful house and we’d heartily recommend it.… “Lots of lovely touches”
