The Devonshire Arms

Mention you’re going to The Devonshire Arms and you can drop in that your hosts are to be the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Add the Michelin-starred restaurant and use of the spa and they’ll be in the car before you know it.

The bedrooms here have been restored to all their glory by the Dowager Duchess using the same carpenters from Chatsworth, no less. Planning applications at the next parish council meeting never looked so dull in comparison. They’ve thought of everything with hot water bottles in every room. The ladies will be thrilled with all these little touches. The men can head off to the Three Peaks or button up for a spot of fly fishing on the River Wharff. You can even take the dog and make good work of the sprawling 30,000 acre estate.

With an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, a separate gym and gorgeous spa set in a restored ancient barn they really do have it all. And children under 2 stay free.
