Contemporary country luxury and outstanding service are at the heart of the Van Dyk experience.

"A deep wedge of country life with lashings of light-filled space to eat, drink, laze and loll."

Van Dyk (not to be confused with the Flemish Baroque artist) sits pretty as a picture northeast of Chesterfield, a 30 minute drive from the Peak District. Off the A619 Worksop Road, between Barlborough and Whitwell Common, this country house hotel makes a deliciously plumb base from which to discover the dramatic Derbyshire landscape.

Step through the signature floral archway entrance into a sumptuous world of modern country living. £6 million, give or take, has been invested to create an ultra-stylish new hotel from local Derbyshire stone, an addition to the original 17th century mansion house. Botanic-themed interiors – by award-winning interior design firm, SpaceInvader – tie old and new together, making a nod to the former Dutch owner and his passion for flora – for Van Dyk was a garden centre in times past.

Van Dyk Hotel, then, wears its history well – an unforced palette (indoor and out) of grey and green, from forest to fern with coral accents. Exotic wallpapers with a luxuriant tropical flora theme is matched with botanical art prints and beautifully upholstered furniture. You may find yourself staying on a while in this verdant part of England. Here is a hotel-from-home, reinvented for its next era.

A popular place to celebrate, to meet, to enjoy great food – inside or in the open air – or to stay, enveloped in botanical calm. Van Dyk has heart and soul, run by a team with a genuine passion for making every experience an exceptional one.

Coming soon to Van Dyk: a new spa, with treatments by Elemis, is due to open October 2021.

Places to Visit

Chatsworth – Treasure Houses of England -

The ‘Palace of the Peak District’ and Britain’s favourite country house

Set in a 30,000-acre estate on the east bank of the River Derwent, Chatsworth House is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire. Despite being situated in Derbyshire, the 1st Earl of Devonshire was so called because the title of the Earl of Derby was not available. In 1694, William Cavendish (fifth generation) was made the 1st Duke of Devonshire by William III of Orange. Since 1549, Chatsworth has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family.

Boasting one of the finest private art collections in the world, treasures have been acquired by the Cavendish family from the 16th century to the present day: artefacts from ancient Egypt; Elizabethan needlework to Enlightenment scientific instruments; Old Master drawings; neoclassical to 21st century sculpture; and computer portraits. The Devonshire Collection includes paintings of Chatsworth and the Cavendish family throughout the ages by masters of the day, including Sir Anthony van Dyck, Pompeo Batoni, John Singer Sargent and Sir Joshua Reynolds. Recently opened, the New Gallery also houses a programme of exhibitions that are exclusive to Chatsworth. The magnificent Painted Hall, with its grand staircase and painted ceiling, is awe-inspiring to behold.

As one of Britain’s favourite attractions, the recent three-part BBC documentary Chatsworth follows the Duke, Duchess and Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, giving unprecedented access to the Estate and exploring the dynamics of modern life in a stately home. Pride and Prejudice and The Duchess, starring Keira Knightley, were both filmed at Chatsworth.
