Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is situated in a conservation area in the heart of the market town of Belper in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. All of our upstairs rooms have stunning views across the Derwent Valley. We have the best of both worlds being a short walk from shops & restaurants as well as the open countryside. The beautiful Peak District National Park is only a short drive and offers hiking, cycling, water sports, horse riding and golf. There are many stately homes including Chatsworth House, one of Britain’s best-loved historic houses within 30 min drive.

For those wanting to explore further afield our location in the centre of England give us excellent road, rail, air and bus links. London is only 2 hours by train with Shakespeare country, Warwick Castle and Robin Hood country within an hours drive.
