OVERVIEW

Some are drawn to the Devonshire Arms at Beeley for its location, handily situated for visiting nearby Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Others are more interested in the prospect of stylishly decorated bedrooms, an extensive gin menu and a fine Derbyshire dinner. Either way, this 18th-century inn delivers the goods.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Beeley sits between Chatsworth and Haddon Halls, roughly five miles from Bakewell and six from Matlock. Small but pretty, it's made up of a few dozen sandstone houses, with a Norman church and a little brook. There's good walking nearby, both up on the moors and along the Derwent valley. Just yards up the road is the Old Smithy, a gallery, gift shop and café-bistro, with a secret garden at the back.

By car: the hotel is 45 mins from Sheffield, 1 hour 30 mins from Birmingham and 3 hours 10 mins from London. There is free parking on-site.

By train: London St Pancras International to Chesterfield takes 1 hour 45 mins. The hotel is a 25-minute taxi ride from the station. Book trains to Chesterfield.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Stepping through the front door, the inn is as traditional as you expect, all thick stone walls, wooden settles and spindle-back armchairs, with log burners keeping things cosy. Venture a little further into the brasserie, and the look shifts forward several centuries, with bold graphic prints, a wall of windows and multi-coloured bubble chandeliers.

THE FACILITIES

Room service and laundry service are available, and you'll find a couple of electric vehicle charging points in the car park. Staff are friendly and helpful, and can sell tickets for Chatsworth House or recommend good places to walk, run and visit nearby; there's also a stand of tourist information leaflets.

BED AND BATH

Split between the pub and three neighbouring cottages, the rooms vary in size but all feel calm, cosy and elegant, with restful shades, quality materials and the odd quirky element - they love a statement lamp or giant bedhead. Bathrooms are similarly luxurious, kitted out with smart Victorian-style tiles and classic white tubs and basins.

Room types: Classic Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Luxury Suites

Key amenities: ensuite with bath or shower, Noble Isle toiletries, tea and coffee-making facilities, TV, DAB radio, fridge, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

The popular restaurant sources much of its produce from the surrounding region, including Nottinghamshire Stilton, Derbyshire oatcakes and game from the Chatsworth estate. Dishes range from the classic (rib eye fillet, sticky toffee pudding) to the more unexpected (soft shell crab tempura, coconut panna cotta), and the bar stocks local ales and a good choice of gins.

The Inn: AA Rosette, modern British cuisine, pub classics, Sunday roasts. Open every day for lunch and dinner. Mains from £14.
