Welcome to Willersley Castle Hotel

A magnificent Grade II* listed building, built for the great industrialist, Sir Richard Arkwright, at the end of the 18th century.

The hotel overlooks the River Derwent on the edge of the Peak District National Park in the county of Derbyshire. It also forms part of the UNESCO Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, alongside the historic village of Cromford, a village preserved from the time of the Industrial Revolution.

Set in 60 acres of private grounds and with its own swimming pool, there is so much for guests to enjoy in the stately surroundings of Willersley Castle Hotel.

A series of hotel activity and interest breaks makes Willerlsey Castle the perfect location to relax, recharge the batteries or try something new. Venture out, and the natural playground of the Peak District awaits, with its walks, cycle trails, rock climbing and caving.

There is also an abundance of attractive market towns – including the spa town of Matlock Bath on the hotel’s doorstep – and historic houses to explore; including Chatsworth, one of England’s finest country houses, just a short drive away.
