Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Soothing Mists over Hartington

Mists over Hartington 1A warm (warmer, it’s all relative) day so hardly any snow or visible ice about on the roads and paths, although in Mists over Hartington 3deep puddles there  still can lurk a layer of ice providing a slippery trap for the unwary.

John and I and another group of friends went today to Hartington where most of us embarked on a delightful two-hour walk ending in a very pleasant and convivial lunch at the Devonshire Arms (in Hartington, not Beeley!).Mists over Hartington 6

Of course because of all the sudden warm(er) weather there  is a lot of mist about in the valleys, lingering all day in some places. John managed to capture some rather evocative misty views looking down over Hartington from the hills above.

These are the grey/green/blue misty colours I find so attractive and which we tried to reflect in Douglas’s Barn, wanting to create a calm, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

If you’d like to see a few more John took today (all variations on a theme) they are in the Photo Gallery, under Here and There. Double click on a photo then you should be able to see each in turn, slightly enlarged.
