Welcome to Riverside House Hotel - a 14-bedroom hotel, situated on the river Wye in the picturesque village of Ashford-in-the-water, Derbyshire.

About

Riverside House Hotel is a 14-bedroom hotel, situated on the river Wye in the picturesque village of Ashford-in-the-water, Derbyshire. Now headed up by the team behind the Iconic Rafters Restaurant in Sheffield, Rafters at Riverside House has undergone a full refurbishment.

The bar is something new to the Riverside House, it is the heart of the hotel. All are welcome, you don’t have to be staying to enjoy a drink with us. There are two areas – our main bar where you can enjoy a drink, light bite or breakfast if you like and our “snug”, perfect to relax, get away from it all and settle into a good book. 

Our private dining room is the perfect place for a get together seating between 8 - 12 guests. The room overlooks the river and gardens and is available Thursday - Sunday Lunch and Wednesday - Sunday Dinner. 

Looking for that perfect Derbyshire retreat, then look no further. Riverside by Rafters is the perfect place for foodies to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Our rooms are all unique and offer something different. 

RAFTERS ROOMS - This room features the "Rafters" which give our flagship Sheffield restaurant its name.  This room is our largest room and features a stunning bathroom complete with twin sinks. 

KINGFISHER ROOM - This stunning room has the best view of the River where you can sit with a morning coffee and try to spot the Kingfisher... 

HOUSE ROOMS - These rooms are in the original part of the house and are all unique offering that special place to relax. 

GARDEN ROOMS - These rooms overlook our beautiful gardens. Our ground floor rooms have their own patio where you can access the gardens directly, a special little addition to your stay.
