The Wind in the Willows is a delightful early Victorian country house; which has retained its original charms including oak panelled rooms; traditional furnishings; and open log fires. The hotel is situated within five acres of land and is set amidst unspoilt views of the Peak District National Park and is surrounded by the heather clad hills of the Pennines. The setting provides an escape from the pressures of modern day life into the atmosphere and elegant surroundings of a bygone era.There are many varied walks on the doorstep and a 9 hole golf course opposite the hotel. Local attractions include; Chatsworth House; Castleton Caves and Caverns; Holmfirth the Last of the Summer Wine country; The Lowry Gallery in Manchester; with Manchester International Airport 14 miles away.All rooms are individually designed; with no two alike; most are double with queen-sized beds; and others are twin bedded. Our hotel has gained a reputation for first class home cooking; served in the delightful surroundings of the charming period dining room. In order to maintain the peace and quiet; for which we have become renowned; we do not have a restaurant open to the general public; instead we serve a three course dinner to residents and their invited guests between 7:00 and 8:00.Wifi is available throughout the hotel and there is parking for guests.We are unable to accommodate children under 10 years of age.
