The Peacock at Rowsley
Bakewell Road, Rowsley, DE4 2EB
Owned by Lord Edward Manners of nearby Haddon Hall, The Peacock at Rowsley is a chic yet cosy luxury boutique hotel. With three AA red stars putting it in the top 200 hotels in the country, and three AA rosettes for its food, The Peacock leads the way in service and hospitality. The small and highly efficient hotel team offers the warmest of welcomes; their friendly yet professional manner is regularly praised by guests. Situated in the glorious Peak District National Park between Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House – where Peacock guests receive discounted entry – The Peacock is perfectly positioned for a romantic getaway, walking holiday or indulgent foodie escape. The surrounding area plays host to some amazing wildlife and yields fantastic produce, which head chef Dan Smith uses in dishes across the range of restaurant menus. Dan prides himself on delivering the best in class – be it a simple homemade burger made with Haddon Estate beef and homemade ketchup, served with a pint of local Peak Ale, or The Peacock’s three-rosette, eight-course tasting menu enjoyed in the elegant fine dining restaurant. The Peacock at Rowsley is an invited member of Mr and Mrs Smith Hotels, Sawday’s and The Great Inns of Britain. Having played host to many celebrity guests over the years including Dame Judy Dench, Sir Ian McKellen and Gary Barlow, The Peacock boasts a relaxed atmosphere coupled with exemplary reception and service. Nestled on the confluence of the Derwent and Wye rivers, the hotel also offers guest anglers exclusive access to fish wild trout on these world-renowned stretches of river. Seasonal packages and a range of tailored Peak District experiences are available.
