Scenic walks can be enjoyed through the surrounding countryside, with the Headstone Viaduct which now forms part of the famous Monsal Trail, just 750 feet from the hotel's front door. Full Derbyshire breakfasts are served every morning in the Longstone Restaurant made with fresh, local ingredients from nearby award-winning butchers.
