Peacock at Rowsley Derbyshire

“A 17th century manor first opened as a hotel in 1820, in the middle of the Peak District. Recent renovation has created a stylish mix of traditional and contemporary, with luxurious trappings and outstanding food. Come for walking and fly fishing on a seven mile stretch of river. True English charm.”

“Once upon a time this country inn was the Dower house for Haddon Hall, stately home of the Duke of Rutland. Rutland family castoffs are mixed up with contemporary pieces. Equally popular both with Hollywood stars (filming costume dramas at Chatsworth and Haddon Hall), walkers and fishermen. Fly-fishing is offered on the Haddon Hall estate. Bedrooms are pretty and stylish, all with Apple TV. Staff are most obliging, if guests want dinner on a tray in their rooms in front of the TV then that’s fine. Log fires in winter and beautiful flowers all the year round. Mouth-watering food, including delicious picnics.”

Why I love The Peak District. By Fiona Duncan.

Between Manchester and Sheffield, it’s full of contrasts, from the Dark Peak's high exposed moorlands and dramatic gritstone edges to the White Peak’s gentler plateaus, limestone dales and rivers."
