The Derwent is perfect for friends, families, stag and hen weekends and offers a totally different unique concept for any special celebration.

The Derbyshire region

The Peak District is an area of great natural beauty with rugged, peat-covered moorlands and magnificent limestone dales (great for walking and cycling, as well as other, more dangerous sports), plus picturesque villages and some interesting towns. It is the location of Britain's first National Park - the Peak District National Park, which is the the world's second most visited National Park.

The Peak District has numerous interesting and exciting tourist attractions Probably the chief among these is Chatsworth House - a magnificent house set in a landscaped park which is the home of the Dukes of Devonshire - major landowners in the area. This is followed by Haddon Hall outside Bakewell - the home of the Manners family, who are the Dukes of Rutland - is a beautifully preserved medieval manor house.

The Peak District is a fine place for outdoor activities such as walking and cycling, and each week and especially at weekends, many thousands of people come here to enjoy these activities.

There are numerous interesting towns to explore. Buxton is the one with the longest history, having been founded by the Romans, who exploited the warm spring water to build thermal baths, for which the town became very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. As a result it has some magnificent buildings, notably the Georgian Crescent and the Opera House. It now has a thriving music and arts festival each summer.


Enjoying and enviable position in the heart of The Peak District National Park, The Derwent offers so many interesting places to explore nearby.

Bamford is a former mill-village and occupies the hillside underneath Bamford Edge and above the River Derwent and is perfectly situated in the heart of The Peak District. There is a lot more to the village than can be seen when just passing through. It has some lovely quiet corners and the Derwent is especially pretty around the millpool just above the mill itself. The impressive wier can be admired from the footbridge below the mill that carries the Public Footpath across to the south bank.

At the bottom end of the village there is the railway station, which very conveniently links Bamford with both Manchester and Sheffield. At the centre of the village there are some shops and a couple of pub nearby.

Bamford Edge is a fine gritstone edge which overlooks the village and offers a fine view of Ladybower. The view from the edge is very worthwhile.

Right on your doorstep is Lady Bower & Howden Reservoir and the Upper Derwent Valley which is absolutely stunning to visit whether you walking, fishing or cycle around it. Not only is it a naturally beautiful area, but also steeped in history, during the Second World War the reservoir was used by pilots of the 617 Squadron for practising the low-level flights needed for Operation Chastise (commonly known as the "Dam Busters" raids), due to its similarity to the German dams. Today there is a commemorative plaque to 617 Squadron on the dam, and one of the towers on the dam houses the Derwent Valley Museum. There is a visitors centre, Fishing boat hire and a cycle hire.

Founded in 1898 Sickleholme Golf Club is a friendly club nestling in the heart of the beautiful Peak District in Derbyshire in the village of Bamford within walking distance to The Derwent. With an undulating parkland course of 6,064 yards, (ladies 5,399 yards) and stunning views, it is hard to find a more spectacular or picturesque venue. After playing the great course Bobby Locke was so impressed that a painting of the 13th hole graced his home mantelpiece in South Africa for many years. Some testing holes await you on the impeccably manicured course with enviable greens, which have all seen extensive improvements over recent years. The nature of the course and the care which is lavished on it, results in it rarely being closed during the winter months. Sickleholme welcomes visiting groups.

A short drive away, popular areas of the Peak District are very accessible Bakewell, Castleton, Hope Valley, Edale, Hathersage and Chatsworth

"Hen Party at the Derwent"

For my sisters hen do we wanted a home away from home location and we certainly found that. From the start Peak Venues couldn't have been more helpful and the whole booking process was easy and simple. The Derwent has been renovated to such a high standard and everything we could have possibly needed had been thought of, including large pots and pans for dinner, 3 dishwashers to save us washing up and plenty of wine glasses!! All the guests were amazed at the venue and said they would definately recommend it in future especially for a hen party location. We hired barmen on the saturday night to come to the pub and serve the women cocktails which went down a treat and we enjoyed a lovely meal at the local pub in Bamford The Anglers Rest who were very accommodating and reasonable. I would definately recommend this venue for large groups of friends and family and I know that my family are hoping to return for a Christmas or large birthday at some point in the future. Thank you Chris and thank you Peak Venues for such a lovely weekend.
