Alison House Hotel

Alison House is a truly stunning Georgian hotel, set in 7 acres of grounds with beautiful gardens. Built by the Arkwright family, it is set in the heart of the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site.

The peaceful setting of Alison House means that you can truly unwind and enjoy the best of the Peak District National Park, yet it’s only a short walk from the lovely village of Cromford and all the attractions of Matlock and Matlock Bath.


Alison House Accommodation

Alison House has a 4-Star AA Guest Accommodation rating. All 15 rooms have en-suite facilities with televisions and tea/coffee trays, and there is free wireless internet access in all areas. There’s also an informal bar and lounge with an elegant dining room overlooking the gardens.

The licensed bar and restaurant at Alison House serves both lunches and dinners, with an emphasis on using locally-sourced quality ingredients complemented by a comprehensive wine list.

Alison House is the ideal venue for christenings or family parties, or just for a relaxing break in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. It’s also the perfect setting for a stunning wedding, and there are three rooms licensed for the ceremony.

Alison House Location

Alison House is situated in one of the most beautiful and historic areas in Derbyshire. Steeped in history, with the famous Arkwright and Masson Mills in Cromford only a short walk away, this is the perfect place to explore.

Only slightly further afield, the country estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are just a short drive away.

For our more energetic guests, there are plenty of footpaths and walks in the immediate area, as well as rock-climbing, pot-holing and caving opportunities close by in the many limestone dales of this area. If water sports are more your thing, you’ll love canoeing and sailing at Carsington Water.


Alison House for Corporate Events

The Garden Suite at Alison House, a self-contained building just a few yards from the main house, is the perfect place for meetings, conferences and training courses.

We can cater for groups of up to 60 people, and we also provide overhead projectors, free wi-fi, flip charts and a 52” plasma screen television. Tea and coffee facilities are available at all times and lunches and dinners can be provided.

The Garden Suite can be hired on a daily rate or on a residential delegate rate. We also offer discounted rates for charities.
