Rich in original character and traditional charm, this cozy 19th-century country inn offers good beers, affordable food and comfortable rooms with private bathrooms in the converted former stable block.

Originally built in 1866, the Duke of Wellington was once a working farm and an inn for drovers. Traditionally built from Derbyshire limestone, the pub has a slate roof, roaring log fires and extensive gardens. Free wireless internet access is available in the bar.

There are 9 rooms with private bathrooms in the beautifully converted stable block. Set away from the main building, the rooms offer comfort and privacy. The stable block has its own flagstone courtyard and free private parking is available on site. All rooms have TVs and tea/coffee making facilities.

Recently redecorated in a traditional country style, the inn boasts extensive floral gardens with comfortable seating areas. There is also a fully enclosed and heated patio area, overlooking Riber Castle and the Derwent Valley.

Duke Of Wellington has been welcoming guests since Apr 7, 2009
