The sheep were a little pooped though.
There was a purpose to our walk though, and here was the first glimpse.
Mmmm. Yes, thought you did. (Okay, it wasn't actually filmed here - it was filmed at Lyme Park, but Chatsworth was the model for Pemberley).
There was no time to explore the house or the gardens (will definitely have to come back one day) but there was a farmer's market outside and we did stop for freshly made ice cream from a local farm. As you can imagine the grounds are quite extensive and there were hundreds of people milling around, picnicking and enjoying the day.
But back to important matters - at the end of the walk, most of the group headed for the pub. I headed for this bakery.
Bakewell tarts are quite ubiquitous around the country. They feature jam, sponge and an almond paste in a shortcrust pastry, with or without icing. But only in Bakewell can you get the Bakewell Pudding - similar flavours but in puff pastry. Trust me, it tasted much better than it looks (sorry for the blurry photo, plus this was taken after it was squished in my rucksack for two hours). I also couldn't resist buying a traditional tart for later (it was all gone by the next day). If only all walks finished so well.
