Snow-covered 4x4 tows leaves camp site after snowfall in Buxton.
Holiday makers camping in the Derbyshire Peak District woke up to an unexpected white blanket this morning, thanks to Storm Katie.
The covering of snow meant that many campers cut short their plans for a long weekend away, to brave the icy roads and head home early on Monday morning.
But it wasn’t all bad news for some of the younger guests at Grin Low Caravan Site in Buxton.
Three-year-old Greta Williams made the most of the morning’s surprise by building a snowman and enjoying snowball fights with her aunt Claire Jones.
Claire said it was the first time she had been camping in the snow.
“It was completely unexpected but it’s made it a trip to remember,”she said.
“Greta really enjoyed making the snowman, but I think we’ll head back home now in case any more falls.”
For Chris and Lorraine McCoy the first they knew of the snow was when they woke up and stuck their heads out of their tent.
They had travelled to Buxton from Warwickshire with their four-year-old son Joe, to enjoy a weekend break.
“It’s all part of the adventure,” said Chris. “It’s a bit cold in the tent but we’ll soon warm up, and it’s made the surrounding countryside really beautiful.”
