The 4-star Hallmark Hotel Derby Mickleover Court is 30 minutes' drive from the Peak District and the Lower Derwent Valley, and within 20 minutes' drive of Kedleston Hall, Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood.
This property is in Mickleover, a 15-minute drive from Derby and a 20-minute drive from Uttoxeter Racecourse, which holds antique fairs and festivals, as well as racing events. The hotel is also a 20-minute drive from the historic river port of Shardlow, where you can join the Derwent Valley Heritage Way -- a 55-mile walking route passing through Derby and Matlock. Make sure you see Derby's cathedral, founded in 943, where a "vaulted ceiling towers above a fine collection of medieval tombs" (Lonely Planet).
The hotel's health and leisure club is free to use, and has an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a spa pool and a gym -- according to The AA, "the well-presented leisure facilities are amongst the best in the region". The Brasserie serves British and international cuisine, and the kitchen uses seasonal produce where possible. There is also a lounge serving Starbucks coffee.
