Christmas is nearly here. Presents are hidden away in wardrobes and under beds. Some people are done with their shopping. Others haven’t even started. Does that last one sound like you? If it does, we might just have the perfect idea for you.
With 2021 being a slightly better retake of 2020 for most people, but still speckled with isolation, lockdowns and travel restrictions. This means that the majority of people may still not have been away.
For some, they may still be a bit sceptical about travelling too far. And we can’t say we blame you. So why not enjoy a staycation, in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, nestled away in the sleepy town of Belper.
Belper is a quiet, rural, market town with some stunning sights and places to visit. Situated in the Derwent Valley Mills Heritage Site the area is famous for its cotton mill history.
Here at The Lion Hotel, we are surrounded by many boutique shops so you can even shop till you drop – perfect whether you stay before or after Christmas!
In Belper itself, you can visit the Heage Windmill or Strutts North Mill for a taste of industrial history. Or head over to see Belper Water Gardens, if you catch them in the snow, they look incredibly beautiful.
Staying At The Lion Hotel Belper
Enjoying a night away with your loved one has never been so relaxing. Stay in one of our 22 luxuriously decorated rooms, set within a restored 18th-century building.
Complete with one of the most comfortable mattresses we could find, paired with cloud-like pillows and duvets, prepare to not want to get up in the morning!
If you arrive and realise you’ve forgotten the bubble bath, don’t worry, we’ve included some complimentary toiletries in every room. Are you thinking “did I read bath?” Yes, you did! Our rooms include both a shower and bath for your choice of a relaxing soak or a quick wash before heading down for a romantic dinner.
If you’re staying the night, you don’t have to worry about who the designated driver is, or about getting a taxi home. So why not order yourselves a bottle of wine to the table as you peruse the menu.
Our gastro menu has a fantastic selection of dishes, from winter warmers for meat lovers and vegetarians alike to giant sharing pizzas and everything in between. Check out the full menu for more information.
If you’re staying with us before Christmas, why not check out our festive fayre menu? A hint of festivities, with some great food!
For more information on staying with us this festive period, get in touch with a member of the team today who will be happy to help.
We also recommend booking in to dine with us too as we get booked up in advance with Christmas Fayre.
