Our Inspector's view

The Devonshire Arms at Beeley is a charming 18th-century village inn, located on the Chatsworth Estate, with Chatsworth House itself only a short drive away. With its stylish and well-appointed rooms and suites, this is the ideal place to stay for exploring one of Britain's best-loved stately homes, the pretty villages on the estate, and the wild and natural beauty of the Peak District National Park. Local produce is fully evident on the menu, and the inn serves an array of dishes. Eat in the cosy bar area, The Malt Vault – a private seating area suited to groups of up to 12, or the contemporary, colourful Brasserie. In the summer months there is a terrace for alfresco dining too, with tables and parasols beside the brook.

About the area

Discover Derbyshire

The natural features of this central English county range from the modest heights of the Peak District National Park, where Kinder Scout stands at 2,088 ft (636 m), to the depths of its remarkable underground caverns, floodlit to reveal exquisite Blue John stone. Walkers and cyclists will enjoy the High Peak Trail which extends from the Derwent Valley to the limestone plateau near Buxton, and for many, the spectacular scenery is what draws them to the area.

The county is well endowed with stately homes – most notably Chatsworth, the palatial home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, with its outstanding collections of paintings, statuary and art. Other gems include the well preserved medieval Haddon Hall, the Elizabethan Hardwick Hall, and Kedleston Hall, whose entrance front has been described as the grandest Palladian façade in Britain.

The spa town of Matlock is the county’s administrative centre and other major towns of interest include Derby and the old coal mining town of Chesterfield, with its crooked spire. Around the villages of Derbyshire, look out for the ancient tradition of well dressing, the decorating of springs and wells – the precious sources of life-sustaining water – with pictures formed from flowers.
