Daleside Hero

Daleside House Heart of England

Relax on a spa break in deepest Derbyshire

From the entrance hall, big enough for a party itself, to the gorgeous indoor swimming pool, Daleside House has space, glamour and style. Take over this amazing Derbyshire hall for your holiday, business event or family celebration and enjoy the seamless blend of classic charm and 21st century pleasures.

Soft neutrals with occasional bursts of colour reflect the mood of Daleside House - being at once a soothing, calming retreat and a lively party palace. The ‘snug’ seats a dozen or more, the billiards room makes space for a cocktail bar and the grounds, sandwiched between the Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District, consist of 50 acres of rural perfection. When you’re not relaxing in the spa, you can watch one of nine TVs, play table tennis or work out in the gym. There’s a choice of rooms for your ceremonies and socialising, eight comfortable ensuite bedrooms, and a huge country kitchen where you, or the private chef, can make meals that match the occasion.

Outside, from the fairy lit courtyard to the sun-drenched terrace, there are places of calm and beauty where you can unwind and enjoy the views. Or, if you’re feeling energetic, play croquet, cricket or boules on the sweeping lawns.

Whether you’re taking your vows in the oak-beamed Northcote room or taking the plunge in the indoor swimming pool and spa, with sauna and jacuzzi, Daleside House somehow succeeds in being stately and comfortable, historic and contemporary, a place to party and a place to relax. In short, it is somewhere to please even the most discerning of your guests.
