We had a few days away in Derbyshire and tried to pack as much in as possible whilst in the area including a visit... More

It was a spur of the moment visit as I am a fan of Denby. Was expecting just a little shop and a possible tour but its much more. A fabulous outlet village - great for stocking up on Denby products. A farm shop with gift area - we watched a cooking demo and sampled the meal. The cafe/ restaurant... More

Went with family including 12year old and 2 7 year olds, we did the tour of the factory which including making our own pot frogs and decorating plates, such a lovely place! Kids loved getting creative, then playing on the park and going to the tea rooms, food there is amazing! Definitely worth the visit!

It's good quality, local produce, but it is slightly more expensive than your local supermarket, so it's a treat for us. The other shops have some lovely bits and pieces. We haven't bought... More

Denby shopping village has a number of small units for perusal. Friendly staff and prices that are a little less than you will find in the shops. Good selection and on occasions some great offers if you aren't too specific in what your looking for.
