Gives quite a lot of detail on each area and has nice 'end of chapter' suggestions of highlights for particular areas with places to see, eat, thins to do and events in the year.
Only criticism would be that it is not really critical of any area, so we did waste a couple of trips going to see towns that weren't really worth it (and seemed to give equal weighting to some areas that were far more interesting/ beauitful/ unusual) whereas another travel guide (like rough guides) actually gives more of a critique of an area which is a bit more useful if you are on a tight timescale as we were.
Esp. highlights, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton (and mines) and Bakewell (which is beautiful)
We would highly recommend this book - we even bought another copy so that our parents could have a copy themselves !
It's a well written, although slightly too "rose tinted glasses" for my personal liking, and the suggested walks with directions and maps look really good and well thought out and planned. And they give warnings of difficult sections of a walk, Steep climbs or slippery slopes after it rains etc.
All in all I'm glad to recommend this book.
Down sides are that it s not very visually attractive but then I love DK book guides so I'm spoilt .
We uses it on a 4 day road trip with short walks & managed very well to see what we wanted but probably missed feature of some areas
I sugest you read it well before you leave then reference to it when there.
