About the Derwentwater Arms
The Derwentwater Arms is a historic pub in the heart of the pretty village of Calver, on the border between the White Peak and the Dark Peak, against the River Derwent.
The pub sits high on a hill overlooking the village with the most wonderful Peak District scenery, looking over to Curbar Edge and beyond. Opposite is a perfectly kept cricket pitch; Calver Cricket Club is one of the oldest cricket clubs in the country.
Calver itself is an ancient village, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The oldest part of the village has a cluster of lovely stone cottages gathered around an ancient village cross. As well as the pub you’ll find a great selection of shops here, including a garden centre, an outdoors shop and an old-fashioned sweet shop.
