Food and Drink

Below is all the information you will need to satisfy your tastebuds while you are staying with us.  

Pubs You Can Walk to

A lovely walk followed by a nice pint and a meal is an ideal way to spend an afternoon.  Below are the three pubs that you can easily walk to .

The Miners Arms

The local village pub that's one mile from the house and easily walkable across the fields. They do good beer and food - but if you want an evening meal or Sunday lunch we recommend you book.  It gets busy! (Dog Friendly)

Location: Carsington (1 mile)

The Hope and Anchor

One of many pubs in Wirksworth - but one of the best, particularly for food.  (Dog Friendly).  Easy to walk to - over the fields. (The way back can be more challenging as it is up-hill!)
