Easter eggs

Easter Break at the oldest hotel in England

Get out and enjoy nature again after the dark winter, with a family break at the oldest hotel in England.
Make the Old Hall the base for your family visit to the Peak District, just a stone’s throw away from Chatsworth and Alton Towers there will always be something to do. Buxton is a thriving town with lots of activities for the family as well as some of the best local independent shops.
We are offering children under 7 to stay with us completely free including breakfast and one other meal from the children’s menu. For children from 7 – 14 they can also stay with us completely free with a free breakfast (if sharing a room with adults)
There will be an Easter Egg Hunt throughout the 2 weeks holidays for your children to learn a little bit more about this historic hotel.

The Old Hall is famous in Buxton and the surrounding area for our traditional Sunday Lunches and we will not disappoint on Easter Sunday with our traditional three course Sunday Lunch served from 12noon – 2.00pm in our elegant restaurant overlooking the Pavilion Gardens.

Heights of Abraham - Since first opening its gates to visitors in 1780 the Heights of Abraham has become one of the Peak District’s most popular destinations. Originally the Heights of Abraham was only accessible to those few visitors who could scale the steep slopes of Masson Hill. In 1984 Britain’s first alpine style cable car transport system was installed. Rising from the valley floor, the observation cars transport you in comfort and safety and allow stunning views of the Derwent Valley and surrounding Peak District.

Chatsworth House - Explore the historic house, discover fascinating stories and enjoy one of Europe’s most significant art collections.  Discover 105 acres of garden with giant water features, sculpture, beautiful flowers and magnificent views of the park.
