Nestled in the heart of the Peak District, The Lamb Inn is an intimate and historic choice. Its pub and restaurant offer roaring fires and food that will leave you stuffed with satisfaction.

Peacock at Rowsley

Originally opened in 1820, this manor is the perfect place for rest and relaxation. If you want to get away from everything, then a few days in the stunning grounds on offer here will give you exactly that. Afternoon tea on arrival and camomile tea before bed helps to take the edge off.
