The Old Station House Bed and Breakfast is one of the closest B&Bs to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Bakewell, three of the area's most popular attractions. We are located in the picturesque village of Rowsley, with a pub and two upmarket restaurants within a five minute walk. With plenty of off road parking and secure bicycle storage on the property our family run B&B is your perfect base for exploring the Peak District National Park.
The Old Station House is so close to Chatsworth House that you can walk to the estate along the beautiful Derwent Valley Heritage Way in just over half an hour, along an easy flat trail through the beautiful Peak District National Park.
Other local footpaths lead to Haddon Hall, Bakewell and Matlock Bath, while Peak Rail steam trains run from Rowsley South station to Matlock at weekends. Our information pack has details of all local walks and we have plenty of guidebooks and maps to help you explore further afield.
Our beautiful house was designed in 1850 by Joseph Paxton, the year before he built the famous Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition in London. We have just three guest bedrooms, two doubles and one twin/superking which has extra long 6' 6" beds. All the rooms are fully ensuite, have TV/DVD players and Wi-Fi, as well as views over the surrounding countryside. We also have a guest lounge where our visitors can relax in the evenings.
Our breakfast is second to none. We serve locally produced free range eggs, bacon and sausages and bake our own bread. Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan alternatives are also available.
The village pub, the Grouse and Claret, is just around the corner from us and serves food all day. If you are looking for fine dining there are two upmarket hotels in the village with restaurants open to non-residents, East Lodge Country House Hotel and The Peacock at Rowsley. The Peacock also has a bar menu. Just a mile away is Devonshire Arms at Beeley - regularly voted Derbyshire’s Gastro Pub of the Year.
