What better way to see the beautiful Peak District landscape than sitting high up in a vintage open topped car. Along quiet country lanes, we will show you some of the classic views and places of interest in the wonderful National Park. This site is designed to show you our suggested routes with pick-ups around the area.
It also gives you ideas for alternative ways of getting the best from this unique service – arrive in style, dress for the occasion or simply share or give a gift. You can’t book this service online but please call us to discuss your ideas or make a booking.
The 1929 Model A Ford “Phaeton” (we call it a tourer in the UK) is the only vintage car in the UK licensed for Private Hire. It is the genuine article just as Ol’ Henry intended. It doesn’t have many of the modern comforts that our current cars have – like a radio, heater (we do carry rugs), locking doors, electric windows or air bags to name a few.
The car is examined at the workshops of Derbyshire Dales District Council every 6 months as a licensed vehicle and it meets all current regulations – for a car of this age – (and exceeds some). However it does not have seatbelts and we therefore recommend that it is not suited for children under 12 years old. It is also quite a step up onto the running board to get in – but we can provide a step to help.
We operate throughout the summer months from April (earlier if the weather is good) to October on most afternoons. Call us for a chat – 07886 021082.
