“Great location for family get together”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We found this to be the perfectly sized property for our party of 23-28. We could have done with less bedrooms, combining kids together, but the downstairs space was excellent. Sleeping 40 would be really packing everyone in. The kids of all ages made constant use of the games room playing pool and darts. There was constant watching of the Olympics. We were able to arrange the dining area so that everyone could sit down at once, but 24 at once is the limit if you also want a table for serving food.

We had a friendly welcome and good explanation of how things work at the property by Howard. The ordered beer barrel was already in place. Our Sainsbury's delivery worked out well too. We made full use of the ample kitchen with two ovens, two fridges, two dishwashers (and a bar glasses dishwasher). The secondary oven wasn't in the ideal place. The check out policy of being able to leave with the dishwashers running upon departure was great.

Everyone was happy with their rooms assigned to them. Would have been good to know which rooms also had a TV ahead of time, and it would be good to have pictures of all rooms (by number) on line. Some rooms can get very hot, especially those above the kitchen, and the opening windows are high up behind the blind so ventilation is limited. Would be good to supply fans. You also need to remember to bring your own hair dryer.

It's great that all the main room and corridor lights turn off automatically, though the light/fan combo in the ensuite bathrooms seem to stay on for quite some time while trying to get to sleep, so that could do with some adjustment.

Be aware - and you get told this on arrival - that you need to keep the gate closed and the main door locked (or supervised) since people think this is a real pub and may wander in. One person did this while we had the door open for something and so we had to politely turn them away. The door uses a combo code so you don't need to worry about your group needing a set (or sets) of keys. There is parking for 8-10 cars (or more if you really pack them in).

Looking at our options for next year, it's very hard to find the same kind of property (in terms of size, facilities and price) in other parts of the country.

We made day trips to Alton Towers (1 hour of fun UK country road driving), Chatsworth House (40 minutes) and nearby Bakewell (where the official bakewell tarts are VERY disappointing). Oddly, the nearby fish and chip shop is closed on Saturday nights after 5 or 6pm - Totally unhelpful. We got some good Indian food from the nearby Indian restaurant.

The deposit was returned within about 10-14 days.

“Our very own Pub for the weekend”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed at "The Derwent" weekend of 10th - 13th June 2016.
Greeted on arrival and given a tour of the key requirements. The former pub was excellent for a large group (we were 24 adults plus 11 children), as there is a great communal area around the bar area, with 2 smaller rooms (both with TV's) just off it, but open plan, so children were always close by, but enabled adults to relax and catch up without worry.
We also ordered a keg of beer from Whim Ales which had been delivered on the morning of our pending arrival, and we were shown how to set this up, which was good!
The accommodation also had excellent provisions. Cleaning items (Fairy liquid etc), hand soap in all rooms, dishwasher tablets (only 5 which was nowhere near enough), and plenty of toilet rolls etc
We also had a Tesco delivery arranged to the accommodation which was easy to sort, and there was plenty of fridge space especially as there were 2 wine fridges within the bar area on top of the 2 x fridges and spare freezer.
Rooms are all nicely decorated, and most rooms come with an en-suite, but plenty of spare bathrooms for those rooms that did not come with en-suite.
The downstairs part of the house did get quite warm, as not able to open many windows, but other than that, no complaints.
Would definitely recommend for large groups.

“Perfect wedding weekend venue”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Quite simply the perfect venue for a relaxed wedding weekend. Friends and family travelled from afar and all arrived late into Friday evening. The Derwent was exceptional in every way not having the restrictions that you may get in a hotel. Children could run around and all parents knowing there would be safe and not causing any damage or annoying other guests if in a hotel. The catering was managed by the Red Olive Catering company based in Derby and we would highly recommend. The interior of the Derwent has been designed to a very high standard and is perfect for a weekend break with a large group of friends. Only complaint was some of the rooms were very cold even though the thermostate was at plus 22 degrees. But apart from that we cannot recommend the Derwent enough. Just very sad the weekend is all over. Huge thanks to the owner Chris and the peak venue team!!

“Fabulous venue for special event for family and friends of all ages!”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Hired this superb 'house' ( it's huge!) via Peak Venues who were great in terms of helpfulness and communication. The event was my husband's 50th birthday and we needed to accommodate 38 people of all ages under one roof, so this venue was perfect!
The rooms are lovely and the bar ( and snooker table) became the focal point for everyone very quickly. It's very spacious with a number of living spaces so noone felt cramped at any time.
Sixteen bedrooms, most with ensuite were fabulous and it was really useful to have fleixbility regarding double and twin options. There are also a number of family rooms perfect for our friends with younger children.
The surrounding area is beautiful and we all went a fantastic walk to Ladybower Reservoir and onto the crags ( via a pub stop) straight from the front door.
Highly recommended>
