, Baslow, Derbyshire.
If Cavendish seems familiar, it's the family name of the Duke of Devonshire, and the Cavendish Hotel is a part of the Duke's Chatsworth House estate. Indeed the hotel looks out onto Chatsworth Park so some rooms and the Garden Room Restaurant enjoy fantastic views across the park.
Originally the Peacock Inn, the hotel is steeped in history, with perfect views and peaceful surroundings. Throughout the hotel you will find open fires, oak beams, antique furnishings, fresh flowers and friendly staff. Everything is of the utmost quality.
The Cavendish offers a choice of three restaurants, depending on your preference for formality and menu. The Gallery restaurant provides imaginative food in lavish surroundings. Meanwhile the Garden Room offers the sort of home-cooking you can't get at home, in relaxed atmosphere with a dramatic view of Chatsworth Park. For diners who would like to see behind-the-scenes, join the chef at the Kitchen Table.
The most historic rooms at the Cavendish Hotel are the Inn Rooms in the original Peacok Inn. They include four-poster, brass or king-size beds, fine art and antique furniture. The more affordable Standard Rooms are anything but "standard" and are very pleasantly appointed. At the top of the tree, the Redesdale Suite occupies two floors and features a private entrance and lobby. Or you could opt for the Hartington Junior Suite in the oldest part of the Cavendish. It has a four poster bed, a large seating area with thw sofase and a writing desk and an amazing bathroom with both a walk-in shower and a marble-surround bath. All this and magificent views over the Chatsworth Estate too.
