The Peacock at Rowsley
Travel Blogs from Rowsley
For the first 2 days of our "staycation", we returned to the Peacock hotel in Rowsley. This was our third visit, the reason being that we were having a reunion of retired medical friends we had known for a long time. As people were coming from all over the country this was a central meeting place. Also the hotel has two private dining rooms as well …
We walked to get breakfast - Dave didn't come - and then drove to the Games Workshop headquarters after packing and loading the car. The place was just amazing and even though there weren't many people there Dave was in Seventh Heaven. We left him there and walked along the canal to find Sainsburys to use the automatic teller. A lovely walk and we saw lots of canal boats. We achieved our aim and were headed back when ...

... travel tunes. Kodaline mostly. I hope I meet some top people for socialising in the 4 bed carriage of dreams, don't let me down. And don't rape me.
Plans after that will be winged like a true traveller.

How has this inn rated in the past?
Have stayed here 3 times and it is always a pleasant experience. The food is really excellent and the staff are all very friendly. It is ideal for those wanting a private dining room for 10 or 16 people but there is the general dining room for couples and smaller groups. The bedrooms are nicely furnished but the bathrooms are a bit on the small side. Reception staff provide maps with local walks and there is complimentary tea or coffee on arrival.
