Peak Edge Hotel, Chesterfield, Peak District
Whichever direction you arrive from, you'll get good views en route to this four-star hotel, just outside the Peak District National Park boundary. To the west there's open moorland and to the east are valley views. At journey's end is a traditional 18th-century inn with a number of sensitive extensions built from local sandstone and slate. The original pub, with many nooks and crannies to hide out in, is home to a bar stocking local ales and a restaurant with many awards under its belt, while the spacious bedrooms are in a newer, purpose-built annexe. Behind them is an attractive garden, where hundreds of young woodland trees continue to grow.
A highlight is the attractively landscaped gardens, with an informal, natural look and a small koi carp-filled lake surrounded by bulrushes.
The famous Chatsworth House and its beautiful grounds are within a 20-minute drive away.
By car: around 45 minutes from Sheffield, 1 hour 30 minutes from Birmingham and 3 hours 30 minutes from London. Free on-site parking.
By train: there are direct trains to Chesterfield Station from Sheffield (16 minutes), Nottingham (38 minutes) and London St Pancras (1 hour 45 minutes). The hotel is a 15-minute taxi ride from Chesterfield Station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
Proximity to the M1 makes it a popular stopover on north-south journeys and many celebs have stayed here while filming in the Peak District. We love the attractive new Garden Room, which features rustic chic décor, cosy dining booths and a large terrace looking over the lake.
Service & Facilities
The garden attracts plenty of wildlife, from swallows swooping above the lawns to dragonflies and butterflies flittering around the lake - what a treat!
- Free Wi-Fi
- Free parking
Everything about the hotel wing feels spacious, from the large reception and wide corridors to the bedrooms, all generously sized. Our favourite room is Hardwick, one of four suites, on the first floor, with French windows and a Juliet balcony overlooking the lake.
