A location so stunning and unrivalled, not another building in sight, within the Peak District National Park, A Country House Hotel steeped in history.

Situated between the picturesque villages of Ilam and Thorpe in the Derbyshire Peaks and near the foot of Thorpe Cloud, the Izaak Walton Hotel is a 2 AA Rosette rated converted 17th Century Country House Hotel offering wooden beams, open fires, comfortable bedrooms and views of outstanding natural beauty.

Named after the famous author of “The Compleat Angler”, our privately owned and operated hotel is in an idyllic setting with modern facilities offering a unique combination of warm hospitality, tranquillity and tradition, whilst maintaining high standards of service.

We have 38 well-appointed ensuite bedrooms, the majority of which have wonderful views over the hotel gardens and the outstanding surrounding countryside.

Our 2 AA Rosette awarded Haddon Restaurant is the pride of The Izaak Walton Country House Hotel and is recommended as a top fine dining restaurant in Derbyshire. With breath-taking views of the Dovedale Valley and creative interpretations on traditional dishes the Haddon Restaurant is the place to dine in style. We also offer less formal dining in our cosy Dovedale Bar and Lounge.
