The Village Green Cafe - a great little cafe within walking distance of the cottage. A fine selection of homemade food and drink. Cycle friendly too!
The Miners Arms - A delightful pub restaurant with bed and breakfast accommodation set in the beautiful village of Eyam in the Peak District Derbyshire. Nice and local. Just a 10 minute walk down the village. Good old fashioned food.
The Monsal Head - More gastro pub with fantastic views from the garden and a lovely spot for a warm summer evening meal outside. There is a 15% discount card in your Welcome Pack. Also, The Stable Bar - good food, no booking needed and dogs welcome.
The Bull's Head, Foolow - A lovely welcoming pub with a restaurant, bar dining and interesting local beers. An easy walk, (or ride), with kids or non-hiking types. About 30 minutes across the fields, or up Tideswell Lane.
The Barrel at Bretton - Dating back to 1597, The Barrel is a traditional country inn with its unique character. The cosy and peaceful oak-beamed bar, its old-fashioned charm still very much intact, has flagstones, studded doors in low doorways, lots of pictures and antiques. They have exceptional cuisine using only the finest local, fresh produce.
Hassop Hall - If you only take one meal out during your stay, make it Hassop. A fine old fashioned dining experience. A bit formal but not pretentious.
The Riverside Hotel - Very nice and formal but lovely. A luxury Hotel with a sense of style and customer service from a bygone era. In the village of Ashford-in-the-Water in Derbyshire’s Peak District, close to the Chatsworth Estate. The Hotel features an AA 2 Rosette Highly Commended fine dining restaurant.

Fischers - A Michelin starred foodies delight! Baslow Hall and Fischers stands at the top of a winding chestnut-tree-lined driveway on the edge of the picturesque village of Baslow. Chatsworth Estate is within walking distance.

The Red Lion at Litton - A great pub with good outside eating areas. A couple of hours walk from the cottage or 15 minutes by car.
