Exploring Autumn at The Peacock

Autumnal walks in and around The Peacock at Rowsley

The Peacock at Rowsley's unique position within the Haddon Estate's tree-lined hills makes it a fabulous destination for walkers. As summer's vibrant greens turn to warm autumnal shades, Rowsley is ideal to enjoy the best of both worlds - a crisp walk in the Peaks twinned with luxurious dining and relaxation.

As one customer put it, "This hotel was a genuinely pleasant surprise. Superb service from all staff. Location is absolutely lovely with a garden that opens up to a longer, country walk.", complementing their business stay with a countryside walk.

Or for more avid walkers, why not turn your stay into a mini walking holiday, as these customers did?

"All in all the hotel exceeded all our expectations and provided a perfect base for our mini walking tour of the area - walking distance to Chatsworth House and Bakewell and a short drive to many more stunning walks and beauty spots."

If you are considering embarking on an autumnal walk in the Peaks, it's wise to remember these tips to maximise your enjoyment...

  1. Always check the local weather forecast before you head off.
  2. Wrap up warm, wear plenty of layers, and take a waterproof, just in case.
  3. Suitable footwear that offers you comfort, warmth and plenty of grip is a must.
  4. Take some water and snacks along with you, especially if you are going on a long walk.
  5. Familiarise yourself with the route and tell someone where you are going.

Once you have completed your walk, The Peacock will be waiting for you, ready with delicious fireside meals and a place to rest and recoup after your refreshing adventure.
