The White Horse

The White Horse Inn nestles in the beautiful little hamlet of Woolley Moor on the outskirts of Ashover, on the eastern boundary of the Peak District National Park.  

The White Horse

As you would expect from a Derbyshire country inn, we offer stunning scenery and a warm, friendly atmosphere.  We also pride ourselves on our great food and, of course, a well-stocked bar.

Unlike other country pubs throughout the Peak District, however, we also offer modern, luxury accommodation at a standard you would normally expect from a 5-Star hotel.  Our five bedroom suites are situated in a separate building – very aptly named The View – and all provide superior comfort with the finest furnishings, as well as en-suite facilities.  Best of all, each suite also has its own secluded balcony for breathtaking views over the lush green valley.
