The Barrel Inn, a traditional Derbyshire country inn, dates back to 1597 and stands at the head of Bretton Clough, in the heart of the Peak District.

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.


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 and delicious, freshly cooked, mostly locally sourced food, every day.


Old worldly charm - peaceful oak-beamed bar, real log fires, flagstone floors, studded doors in low doorways, beamed ceilings and polished copper and brass - have all been retained to enhance the overall charm and friendliness of the Inn.

Seats on the front terrace and a covered courtyard garden at the rear gives good shelter and options for you to enjoy when you join us.

With four 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 and relaxed.

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.


The Barrel would like to thank the organisations, below, for their ongoing support:
