The approach to the hotel promises much, a grand exterior, but sadly tired and dated interior. Reasonable value for the fantastic location, proximity to Matlock etc. We stayed here last year in May for a half marathon in Cromford - booked again this year by...More

About
Description
Willersley Castle is a 200 year old Grade II listed building, commissioned by the great industrialist Sir Richard Arkwright. It occupies a magnificent position on the edge of the Peak District, overlooking the More River Derwent.Designed in the Georgian style, Willersley Castle stands in 60 acres of grounds ranging from meadows to limestone crags, on the outskirts of Cromford, just south of the spa town of Matlock Bath.It makes an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District National Park. With its dramatic gritstone edges and vibrant limestone valleys, Derbyshire is a walkers’ and climbers’ paradise, full of geological gems like the show-caverns at Castleton and the imposing cliffs of Matlock Bath.The area is steeped in history, from the grandeur of Chatsworth House to the elegance of the spa town of Buxton and the rich industrial heritage of Wirksworth, Cromford, and the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Less

It's 2 miles from Willersley Castle. Google map indicate 45 mins walk via Willersley Lane but only 7 mins by car. In my opinion, it is safer to drive at night.
