/ Things to do in Peak District with kids
Obviously we will go for a walk where we might chance across some rock, and by happy coincidence I'll happen to have some rock shoes in the bag.
Otherwise, any siggestions to things to do with 5y old? I know peak district pretty well for where rocks are but not as a non-climbing place to visit.
Walk along Dovedale?
Are the attractions in Matlock open in October? Cable car thingy?
Been to Chatsworth already FYI.
Also, suggestions of places to stay? Thinking of Chequers Inn. Any other similar pub B&B suggestions, perhaps with things within walking distance?
Caves around Castleton maybe?
For a 5 yo, an initiation to climbing/bouldering (and by that I mean scrambling on top of a 2 ft high boulder) can be seriously considered. I know I started my career of professional punter at this age.
Peak district mines museum in Cromford
Chatsworth house gardens & farmyard adventure playground
Buxton swimming baths/ pavilion gardens
Carsington water (bike hire, Canadian canoes, bird hides)
Ilam hall gardens & tea rooms/ Thorpe cloud/ bunster
Tissingon pony trekking
Check to what's going to be open
Hire a tag along bike at Bakewell. Cycle through the long tunnels & across the epic via-ducts. Tea stops along the way
Tram museum at Crich?
Go kite flying?
Hi couple of ideas of things to do with 5y olds

Weaseling in the Burbage valley.
Caving at stony??
