Welcome to Dovedale
The Peveril of the Peak is a great base from which to explore the Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District National Park.
Our Country House enjoys a splendid setting, less than a mile from the dramatic limestone gorge of Dovedale, with the iconic hill of Thorpe Cloud towering above.
There are superb walks and cycle rides right on our doorstep.
Stay with us
The Country House takes its name from the novel by Sir Walter Scott, with the oldest part of the building dating back to the 1830s, and enjoys a stunning location in the quaint Peak District village of Thorpe.
The Country House has 11 acres of manicured gardens and grounds and the towering hill of Thorpe Cloud as a backdrop. A footpath leads directly from the house to the famous stepping stones on the River Dove, on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border.
