The Barrel Inn Information


Being one of only five properties in this small hamlet, on a table of land some 1300 feet above sea level, The Barrel Inn proudly claims to be the highest pub in Derbyshire. The existing Inn dates back to the 17th century, but in medieval times the house was a popular calling place for the salt carriers en route from Cheshire to the township of Sheffield and its Castle. Its panoramic views of the majestic Hope Valley and the Peak District National Park are magnificent and on a clear day you are able to enjoy views over five counties. The pub serves a fine selection of well kept real ales, fine wines and delicious, freshly cooked, mostly locally sourced food, every day. Old worldly charm - peaceful oak-beamed bar, real log fires, flagstone floors, beamed ceilings and polished copper and brass - have all been retained to enhance the overall charm and friendliness of the Inn. Seating on the front terrace on good days is very popular whilst relaxing having a drink and something to eat. With five, luxury, en-suite bedrooms we offer the perfect location for a relaxing break and an excellent base for those spending time, on holiday, walking or cycling through the beautiful Peak District with each room being furnished to a high standard to ensure your stay is comfortable. Please note that, unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate pets inside The Barrel Inn, with the exception of guide dogs, whether in the bar area or within our accommodation. We are more than happy, however, for well behaved dogs to sit with owners on the outdoor front terrace and enjoy our beautiful views.

Philip and Diane Cone have been in the licensed trade for over 30 years and have owned the Barrel since 1996. They have a great team working alongside them helping to give a professional and personal service which their guests expect.
