Escape to the wild
Welcome to Callow Hall
Wildhive Callow Hall is nestled in 35 acres of gardens, wild meadow and woodland. This lovely Victorian country house hideaway is perfectly situated at the gateway to the Peak District with 15 individually designed bedrooms in the house, two Treehouses and 11 woodland Hives. The light and airy Garden Room restaurant and bar serving fresh, seasonal food overlooks the valley, and the converted Coach House offers wellbeing experiences from cycling to treatments. Our homely retreat is the perfect place to gather with friends and family.
Kick back and relax
Whether you're looking to take a break with someone special, or gather the gang and spend some quality time together as a group, we've got room for everyone. We have 15 bedrooms to snuggle up in, right here in the main house. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, choose from our woodland accommodation including one-bedroom Hives and self-contained two-bedroom Treehouses for a touch of laid back luxury in the wild.
Pull up a chair in The Garden Room and enjoy flavourful, seasonal dishes made from the freshest, British produce. Watch as our bartenders create your favourite cocktail at our well-stocked, vibrant bar or enjoy a tipple or two in the Library Snug. Wild Dining events can be booked for groups in the woodland and for those special occasions, why not host your own private dining experience in the Dovedale Room. Non-residents are very welcome.
Take it all in
Take a bike from the Coach House and head up the Tissington Trail or pop into the market town of Ashbourne to explore its antique and book shops. Take a leisurely walk into our Map Room and plan those day-long, action-packed adventures. For those more relaxed days, why not visit Chatsworth House, the jewel in Derbyshire's crown. Or, if you don't want to go too far, just simply switch off and enjoy our 35 acres of wildflower gardens and woodland, perfect for picnics and lazy strolls.
The Wildhive story
At the heart of the Wildhive philosophy is locality, community and a responsibility towards our planet.
Our houses and Wildhives will always be rooted in nature. Whether that be the celebration of delicious food on our plates, the art on the walls, or the activities we engage in within the nearby area. Our inspiring menus are shaped by the seasons and presented simply with the wellbeing of our guests and planet in mind.
We've begun the Wildhive journey with the completed restoration of Callow Hall - a country house hideaway nestled in ancient woodland, a place with a passion for using British seasonal produce, and a destination where you can gather, explore, and fall in love with the local landscape.
Wherever our next adventure might take us, there will always be hives, treehouses and earth mounds, in harmony with the natural surroundings.
