Discover the grounds and woodland at our Derbyshire country house hotel
Gardens & grounds
Step outside and take it all in
Nestled in a 35-acre patchwork of gardens, grounds, woodland, and streams, our house is at the heart of its very own ecosystem. Home to wildlife, including deer, badgers, and rabbits, as well as bees, bugs, birds, and bats, our grounds are a vital part of the natural balance.
Wander through the woods and wild meadow
In collaboration with Blue Forest, we have carefully built our Wildhives within the ancient woodland. If you're not staying in a Wildhive, we encourage you to take a walk through the grounds and see how the woodland changes from autumnal shades of golden amber to a sea of lilac in springtime when bluebells carpet our woods. Follow the nature trail and become immersed in a hive of activity of birds and insects and spot rare flora and fauna in the wild meadow. We will shortly be installing our Wildhive Cam but in the meantime, venture out at night and you may just spot an owl, bat or badger.
