Chatsworth House, the family seat of the Dukes of Devonshire, and the Blue John Cavern near Castleton, are just two of the renowned attractions near this impressive inn. Built in 1908 below the steep, wooded crags of Froggatt Edge, it’s decorated in a contemporary style, although oak panelling, golden chandeliers and stained-glass windows help to declare Edwardian origins. Local artists display their work around the walls alongside photos of Peak District scenes. Leather sofas and log fires await in the Longshaw Bar, where real ales include Abbeydale Moonshine and Peak Ales Bakewell Best, the latter brewed on the Chatsworth Estate. The bar offers terrine of the day and prawn cocktail as starters, followed perhaps by bangers and mash, or beer-battered fish and chips. Another way to find out why The Maynard has earned two AA Rosettes is to dine in the restaurant overlooking the garden and beyond; here seasonal menus might offer fillet of beef carpaccio; smoked aubergine risotto; pan-roast breast of quail and confit leg; oven-roast, home-smoked salmon fillet; and spiced carrot and chickpea blinis; desserts include Braeburn apple pannacotta; and iced quince parfait. On a Sunday a roast or fish lunch might begin with teriyaki salmon fishcake; or goats’ cheese bavarois. The large garden offers striking panoramas across moorland and the Derwent Valley, a super backdrop for those getting married here. Beautifully appointed en suite bedrooms offer a king-size bed, flat-screen TV, and tea and coffee facilities. Dogs are most welcome.
