A coaching inn turned country-house hotel in the heart of the Peak District, at the edge of the Chatsworth Estate - with breakfast, two-course dinner, and bottle of champagne

  • Perfect for lovers of the great outdoors, the gorgeous coaching inn turned country-house hotel of The Cavendish has plenty to please: attractive accommodation, extensive gardens, museum-worthy interiors, gracious hospitality, and off-the-scale stunning views across the rolling countryside. 

  • As you’d expect from a property of this calibre, the dining is top-notch. Head to the AA 2 Rosette-awarded The Gallery for imaginative cuisine and 85 different wines - or try the more laid-back Garden Room for casual and seasonal fare. The hotel also offers delicious Sunday lunches and quintessentially English afternoon teas. 

  • All of the beautifully-appointed and individually-designed guest rooms and suites come with lashings of luxuries; think comfortable double bed (or twins) dressed with high-quality linens and classic-looking bathrooms with soft fluffy towels, thick bathrobes, and bath products. 

  • Given that Chatsworth was the winner of the independently-judged Hudson’s Heritage Award for the Best UK Picnic Spot 2014, it’s no wonder that picnics in the grounds here are so delightful. When the weather’s nice, ask the staff to pack you a special lunch hamper-for-two complete with a half-bottle of Laurent Perrier champagne (extra charges apply).
