The Barrel Inn


The Barrel Inn, a traditional Derbyshire Country Inn, dates back to 1597 and stands at the head of Bretton Clough, in the heart of the Peak District. Being one of only five properties in this small hamlet, on a table of land some 1300 feet above sea level, the Barrel Inn proudly claims to be the highest pub in Derbyshire.

Its panoramic views of the majestic Hope Valley and the Peak District National Park are magnificent and on a clear day you are able to enjoy views over five counties. The pub serves a fine selection of well-kept real ales and delicious, freshly cooked, mostly locally sourced food, every day.

Its Oak beamed bar, real log fires, flagstone floors and polished copper and brass have all been retained to enhance the overall charm and friendliness of the Inn.

With luxury on site accommodation we offer the perfect location for a relaxing break and an excellent base for those spending time on holiday, walking, bird watching or cycling through the beautiful Peak District.

 Enjoy the spectacular views when the weather permits on the front terrace.

There are many walks within the local area and quite a number can be started from the Inn. Walk to places such as Hathersage, Padley Gorge or the Plague village of Eyam which put itself into voluntary quarantine when it was hit by the bubonic plague back in 1665. Some of the descendants still live in the village to this day. The edges of Stanedge, Froggatt and Curbar offer wonderful views of the surrounding area. You can cycle the Monsal Trail, (cycle hire is available at the location).

The Local area has many wonderful sights and attractions, why visit the famous Blue John Caverns at Castleton, the Derwent and Ladybower Dams at Bamford, the spa town of Buxton, the market town of Bakewell home to the original Bakewell pudding, Chatsworth House and its spacious estate, Haddon Hall and its beautiful Elizabethan terraced gardens.
