let me start by saying that I cried when we left. My sister and i took our parents to England to see our relatives and revisit the beautiful Derbyshire countryside where my mother was brought up. I chose the Cavendish because of its location and the fact that we needed a haven to return to as my parents are now well into their 80's. I could not picked picked a better spot. The hotel itself is beautifully appointed, the rooms large and comfortable. As the hotel is nestled on the edge of the estate, it provides great running/walking options which I took great advantage of. (i just wish i had been able to bring my dog). The staff were all warm, friendly and patient and really looked after us for the five days of our visit. The food was excellent both within the formal dining room and in the garden room which offered lighter meals. The scones during afternoon tea are are scrumptious (and I should know as I am known as the scone Queen at home for my own scones). We took full advantage of this picturesque retreat. It was worth every penny and allowed us to make great memories with our parents that we will have forever. Thank you.
