Bed & Breakfast In Rowsley

Rowsley is a popular village dissected by roads and rivers, surrounded by towering hills topped with moorland, and situated on the border of the Peak District National Park at the base of the Wye Valley where it unites with theDerwent.From your Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley you will have easy access to all areas of the Peak District, as well as being only a few minutes drive from Bakewell (the Capital of the Peak District), Chatsworth (the Palace of the Peak District) and Haddon Hall (a romantic medieval treasure).

Your Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley will either be in Great Rowsley which is the earlier part of the village dating back centuries, or Little Rowsley which was established with the arrival of the railway in 1987.
Joining Great and Little Rowsley and carrying the main road through the village is a 15th century bridge over the River Derwent. Built as a packhorse bridge it was widened in 1925 to carry an increasing volume of traffic. Whilst staying at a Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley you may wish to walk over the bridge and take a short tour of this lovely village which has some fascinating features.

A steep road leads east from your Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley to 
Chesterfield, heading up Chesterfield Lane towards Fallinge Edge. At the side of this lane is an old Tollbar Cottage which dates back to the turnpike era. Up until the mid 18th century the valley bottom was marshland so that main routes through the valley followed the high land where possible. After an Act of Parliament in 1759 toll roads were laid, later to become known as the A6 which you probably used to drive to your Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley.

Located on a rise above 
Rowsley is St Katherine’s church which dates from 1855, whilst across from the Peacock Hotel is Caudwell’s Mill which is listed Grade II and still operates as a working museum with craft centre and tea rooms, both conveniently handy to your Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley.
Peak Village just off Chatsworth Road at Rowsley is a factory outlet shopping centre which contains a variety of shops, good parking facilities, a restaurant and the Toys of Yesteryear Museum, offering a touch of retail therapy whilst staying at a Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley.
If you book your Bed and Breakfast in Rowsley for June, your visit may coincide with the annual fete, Well Dressings and a Flower Festival in the church.
