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.
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.
We are now taking bookings for the restaurant, campsite and accommodation, my team and I have worked really hard to deep clean the whole place,
We have put in place systems for social distancing, we have put up screens around the reception desk as well as the bar so you can feel safe on check in or ordering a drink. We are trying to promote table service to save you going to the bar, but just in case you forget we have screens up already,
We have new sanitizer stations as you enter the building as well as entering the restaurant and near the public toilets
We have a one way system into the bar and restaurant as well as our rooms on the first floor so you don't pass anyone on the stairs
We are also having 3 sittings for breakfast so we don't have too many tables down at the same time
My team are wearing face coverings when they bring your food or drink to you and have a good practice of washing or sanitising their hands.
If you have any questions on your stay with us please do not hesitate and call so we can put your mind at rest
We look forward to seeing all our regular and new customers in the future
Our aim is to make sure all our staff and customers feel safe.
