Alternatively, for those who wish to venture further afield, we are happy to share with our guests our own favourite places to eat out in the area.
Part of The Chatsworth Estates at Shottle and still a working farm, we have 150 acres to explore, including our own medieval moat! Full of character and charm our gardens and grounds are as beautiful and varied as our interiors. We have twice won the Amber Valley 'Best Kept' competition for most decorative hotel/guest house in the area.

"We stayed here after our wedding in Venice for a mini-honeymoon & it was fab! We were in the studio hideaway, complete with outdoor jacuzzi. We had tea & homemade cakes on arrival, a delicious dinner & the BEST breakfast! (I'm vegetarian & the food was lovely.) The whole place is v. stylish & cosy. We'd stayed in a 5 star hotel in Venice for our wedding & it was not at all a comedown to stay here afterwards! We only live about 10 miles away, but love it so much have stayed there twice & will be returning again v.soon". August 2006
"We first stayed at Dannah Farm seven years ago and it was so good then that we promised to return. We have just arrived home after a short weekend break and can thoroughly recommend Dannah Farm as a place to stay, for a short break or as a base to stay for a longer holiday exploring the lovely Derbyshire countryside".
