Just a stroll away from the splendour of Chatsworth House, The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley is a village Inn with charm by the pint.
The small, pretty village of Pilsley (not to be confused with the Pilsley near Clay Cross) is built mainly of a type of local sandstone, with many of its houses being owned by the Chatsworth Estate.

History of the hotel
Part of the village was built in the mid 1700s and more houses were added in the late 1830s at the same time as the school. These houses were mainly for estate workers who were to be rehoused, while the nearby village of Edensor was being relocated out of sight of Chatsworth House.
Even today, most of the villagers either work, or have worked, on the estate. If you are wondering why there is no church, the three estate villages of Pilsley, Beeley and Edensor tended to share their amenities. Therefore, the local church is to be found in the latter.
At the western end of the village is a green and, beyond the high street, you'll find different paths leading to some lovely woodland walks. The main track was once a packhorse route, bringing lead from Monyash en-route to the coast.
Pilsley is also home to the Chatsworth Farm Shop–built in the estate's former shire horse stud farm. Both this establishment and the 300 year old Devonshire Arms are advocates of local produce. Many of the dishes on the menu at The Devonshire have ingredients which have come from the shop.
Farmhouse Four-Poster rooms are all dog-friendly, with dogs welcome to stay at £15 per dog, per night.
