Welcome to our site. We are in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site. Cromford is where Richard Arkwright built his water powered mill that gave birth to the industrial revolution. He also built this hotel in 1778 to house his visitors to the mill.
Today, we welcome many who are exploring the mills, sportsmen and women that may be taking part in the Boxing Day raft race from Matlock to Cromford, and many others who may be in Cromford for their own event. We host weddings, birthday parties and other special events.
The hotel is close to the Derbyshire Peak National Park. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Gulliver’s Kingdom, The Heights of Abraham and Matlock Bath close by. Alton Towers is a 20 minutes drive.
The Hotel was recently refurbished for you to enjoy fine fare and fine wines in our comfortable dining room and real ales in our bar by its log fire. The bedrooms all have ensuite bathrooms, televisions and free wifi. Some bedrooms can become family rooms with the addition of extra beds.
