Why We Love It

  • This historic retreat is on the banks of the River Trent
  • A Norman mill tower that is almost 1000 years old forms part of the hotel building
  • The Peak District National Park is 45 minutes' drive away


The Priest House Hotel is a historic property in a picturesque riverside setting in rural Derbyshire. The main hotel building incorporates a Norman mill tower dating back to the 11th century.

Located on the banks of the river Trent, The Priest House Hotel is a 5-minute drive from the small market town of Castle Donington. The town has a museum, and although the castle that gave the town its name is no longer standing, the original church remains.

Other local attractions include Calke Park National Nature Reserve and National Trust property Calke Abbey, which are both around 20 minutes' drive away. The city of Derby is also 20 minutes' drive away, while Nottingham takes 30 minutes. The Peak District National Park and Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are both around 45 minutes' drive away.

Some of the bedrooms are in cottages just over a small bridge across the river. They were built in the 17th century and have original fireplaces and beamed ceilings. Executive Double Rooms are modern and larger than cottage bedrooms, and are in the main hotel building. Some have views of the River Trent.

The hotel has a fine-dining restaurant, and its Millstream Bar & Terrace serves less formal fare and traditional afternoon tea.
