The Red House Country Hotel is located in rural Derbyshire, in a peaceful setting near to the Peak District and its National Park, making it an ideal base for holiday makers.

Derbyshire is very accessible to most parts of Britain, being very close to Manchester and Birmingham and a fairly short drive from London or Newcastle. Our hotel is therefore the perfect place for short breaks or a place to meet old friends. Located just a few minutes from the M1, the hotel is also a convenient place for business meetings.
