Meet the team: Jane
One of the great things about Wildhive is we enjoy working as a team, and we see our team as a family. We work together to create exceptional experiences for our guests, and each team member plays a vital part in this.
When Wildhive first purchased Callow Hall, we were lucky enough to inherit some incredible members of staff who had been with the hotel for years, including our Head Housekeeper, Jane.
We sat down with Jane to learn more about her time at Callow Hall and the journey that the house has taken over the last few years.

I’ve been working at Wildhive Callow Hall for the last seven years and my favourite memory is working in the woods to get everything ready before we opened last year. That period was a really exciting time, and then when we finally got to open and welcome our first guests it felt like such an achievement.
The best part of the job is definitely getting to meet all the interesting guests that arrive. I love showing them around, telling them the history of the hotel, and explaining all about Ed's vision for Callow Hall.
If you’re staying with us at Wildhive Callow Hall, make sure you check out our favourite local spots such as Dovedale, Chatsworth and Bakewell. There’s so much interesting history and quirky culture in the area, but if you need a hand planning your stay, come and say hello or ask for some help!
