This charming boutique hotel is perfectly situated for visitors to enjoy local historic houses.
Located in the beautiful Peak District National Park, the Peacock at Rowsley began life as a manor house in the late 1600s. Then known as Rowsley Manor, it was built for the Steward of nearby Haddon Hall and remains part of the Haddon Estate to this day.
The beautiful residence became a hotel in the 1830s and has been a haven for discerning travellers for the last 180 years.
The Peak District boasts an impressive number of historic houses including the magnificent Chatsworth, the medieval splendour of Haddon Hall, Bess of Hardwick’s masterpiece – Hardwick Hall, and smaller properties full of character, like Eyam Hall.
The Peacock is perfectly positioned to explore these stately houses, with Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House just minutes away by car. Guests staying at the Peacock can also enjoy discounted entry to these magnificent properties.
The nearby River Wye – the only water in the country where wild rainbow trout breed naturally – is what the sportsmen come for. If fishing isn’t your thing, the Peak District offers a range of alternative outdoor activities including beautiful walks and cycle routes, riding, golf and even hot air balloning.
While guests soak up the history and grandeur of the region’s historic houses and breathtaking landscapes by day, the evenings can be enjoyed in the equally atmospheric Peacock hotel.
With the roaring fire in the Peacock’s cosy bar, its award-winning three Rosette restaurant and comfortable bedrooms with antique furnishings, this is the perfect place to while away a weekend in luxury.
Rooms start at £180 for a double room mid week including breakfast.
