Having been the first group to stay in this fantastic property, I must say the whole group were blown away with what they arrived to. My wife could not have asked for a better 30th birthday.
The specification of The Derwent has been done to the highest standard. The owners have truly turned an old pub into something that looks like a boutique hotel. Money has been invested in absolutely everything from the décor to the electrics and heating. There are a good variety of gorgeous rooms as well.
For such a large property we were worried about the heating, however the high tech wireless heating system that was shown to me was very easy to use, and it was toasty warm throughout our stay, nobody in our party complained about the heating.
The Bar that has been kept in situ is a fantastic touch, it is like having your own pub, with plenty of bar fridges to chill your alcohol. There is even a cask pump to use if you wanted bring your own keg (although we didn’t use it). In addition there is a pool table and dart board to use, which most of the males were pleased with.
The location of the the Derwent is perfect as well, not far from Lady Bower Reservoir and Castleton, the landscape is awe inspiring. I am normally a frequent visitor to the Yorkshire Dales, however I am definitely going to be visiting the Peak District more often.
I am not sure what more I can say other than that the owners really need to be commended of what they have achieved with this property. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay.
