I never used to be the spontaneous type, but recently we decided to get ourselves off the sofa and head into the great outdoors for a weekend of activities and camping in the Peak District.

We embarked on our road trip up North in search of vast, green countryside, and soon enough we arrived at our £12 per night camp-site. Despite it only being 10 minutes west of the centre of Sheffield, we were also only 10 minutes East of the rolling hills of Derbyshire.

With our tent firmly pitched in the farm grounds with a view that overlooked field after field, it was time to hit the road once again, but this time on bikes.

When we eventually got to the Derwent Dams & Reservoirs, we were completely in awe at the endless glittering waters. Lucky for us we were also blessed with gorgeous weather. It was time to head back to the campsite after, and let’s just say I’ve never been so glad to see a BBQ on the go after 4.5 hours and 20 miles of cycling!

The next day we drove south through the Peak District, stopping in Bakewell and Dovedale on the way. After snapping away with my camera, driving through fords and tasting some of Bakewell’s traditional Bakewell slice, soon enough we were back on the M1 heading for Milton Keynes.

If you haven’t visited the Peak District before, add it to your bucket list immediately!
