The Hotel’s Manager, Sarah, would like to extend a warm welcome to all guests, old
Situated at the head of a valley in Derbyshire’s White Peak, the Monsal Head Hotel
occupies an enviable position overlooking one of the Peak District’s most beautiful
Dales. The high vantage point affords unparalleled views over the valley, the famous
railway viaduct, built in 1867, and the River Wye meandering beneath. North along
Upperdale leads to Cressbrook, and West takes the eye, and the feet if willing, to
the bold escarpment of Fin Cop and its Iron Age hill fort.
The Hotel itself is composed of several distinctly individual parts, and although
both its dining areas serve the same superb seasonal food menus, they offer customers
a uniquely different experience.
In the Stables Bar, guests can enjoy a variety of real ales and bottled beers with
their meal, in the rustic environment of what was once a working stable, whilst those
looking for a more traditional and cosmopolitan dining experience can relax and be
taken care of in the Longstone Restaurant within the main Hotel.
The Monsal Head has seven en-suite bedrooms in all, several with superlative views
over the Dale. Residents may choose their dining venue, and are then afforded a
peaceful retreat in the Ashford Lounge, which features comfortable leather seating,
an open fire, reading materials and games.
It’s plain to see why the area, and the Hotel, are amongst the most popular tourist
attractions in Derbyshire, but don’t just take our word for it; why not come and
experience it for yourself.
