It was a cold day and we didn’t have our walking boots so we walked around the town, stopping in the small shops to browse for jewellery made from the locally minded gem stone.
We found a cash machine in Castleton at the end of a shop which also doubled as a cafe. That was rather handy and allowed us to start thinking about lunch.
We popped in most of the pubs and decided upon the Bulls Head, mainly due to the seat with decent views of the hills and it was next to a smouldering fireplace. Earlier we had visited another pub across the road for a drink which also had a real fire burning.
After a hearty pub lunch with very generous portions, we walked around the village again. This time we came across an attractive little river with some ducks.
After a while we had walked off our lunches and decided to go home. A great way to spend a few hours if you are close by.
