Willersley Castle is a 200 year old Grade II listed building, part of the Christian Guild Group of Hotels, commissioned by the great industrialist Sir Richard Arkwright. It occupies a magnificent position on the edge of the Peak District, overlooking the 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. We have a comprehensive wine, beer and spirit list but do not have a bar as such. Dinner is available on request and is served at 6.30pm. A fabulous Breakfast is served between 8am to 9am. Televisions are not within the bedrooms however a comfortable TV lounge is available. A payment made by Credit Card will be subject to a 1.5% charge.
