Finally we got to properly get out of the house! We love sightseeing, whatever the weather, but for one reason or another, we haven’t been out properly for a while now. Up until yesterday!
On Friday Edward’s brother, uncle Jim, came over to visit for the weekend, so we couldn’t find a better excuse to do some exploring! We have decided to go to Buxton. Edward and I been there before with my cousin, so we knew it would not disappoint us for sure!
The weather on Saturday was cold but sunny, so not to complain about. We wrapped up nicely in our warmest clothes and were soon on the way towards Buxton!
Buxton spa town is only about 40 minutes drive away from where we live (I know, we are so lucky!!!). However, we didn’t go to explore the town. We went for their beautiful countryside. The exact place is called Goyt Valley. My cousin and his family joined us too. They actually showed us the place. It was nice to have some guidance.
While driving there, we were already wowed by amazing views. The tiny little roads, hilly, beautiful sites, lakes, woods, it was really exceptional! Even if you don’t live very close and have to travel there for the few hours, it is still really worth a visit! The beauty of nature is breathtaking! We were struggling to keep our mouths shut. 🙂
After the beautiful afternoon at Goyt Valley, we went to Buxton town for a dinner to the best Mexican place I have ever been! It’s called Lone Star Mexican Steakhouse. I had a king prawn burrito and I enjoyed it so much!!!
We went back home all excited, already planning our summer visits to Buxton, to Goyt Valley, future picnics and maybe even camping over there! I couldn’t have imagined a better Saturday. I feel so refreshed- day out was really needed!
