Chatsworth estate

We say
Despite the name, this Devonshire Arms is in the heart of Derbyshire's Peak District, close to beautiful Chatsworth, and is owned by The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. There's gastro pub dining based on estate-farmed and local produce, plus original beams and open fires.

Recommended place to stay: The Devonshire Arms at Beeley

The Devonshire Arms at Beeley says

Tucked away within the Chatsworth estate, our small but perfectly formed inn is within walking distance of Chatsworth House and its famous garden – and of course there is the magnificent Peak District on the doorstep too.

  • Splendid house and gardens
  • Gastro pub with rooms
  • Peak District

With just 18 gorgeous rooms and a convivial country pub atmosphere, it’s the sort of low-key place that is perfect for a relaxing break. Owned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, we may have been awarded five-star Inn status and an AA Rosette, but you’ll find us totally unpretentious with a warm welcome, comfortable bedrooms and delicious gastro-pub food.

Dine in our pub, in the light and bright brasserie or on the pretty terrace and enjoy our local cask ales. In winter we light up the log fires.

If you fancy some sight-seeing, you are spoiled for choice. Of course there’s Chatsworth House and garden itself – many of our guests come to stay just to be able to explore the estate with its extraordinary works of art spanning 4,000 years, gardens, farm and parkland, designed by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1760s.

The pretty Derbyshire towns of Buxton and Bakewell are close by and Bolsover Castle is well worth a visit.

There are plenty of activities too, such as fly-fishing, cycling and walking – our staff will be happy to help with recommended routes. The traffic-free Monsal Trail is really special – an 8.5 mile trail along the former Midland Railway line. It’s great for walkers, cyclists and horse riders and it’s wheelchair accessible too.

The Devonshire Arms at Beeley is just one of our five hotels and inns in Derbyshire and North Yorkshire – and not forgetting our gorgeous self-catering ‘bolthole’ cottages within the Chatsworth and Bolton Abbey estates.
