Your Destination

The Priest House Hotel is situated near the Derbyshire village of Castle Donnington, perched in a picturesque setting on the banks of the River Trent. The village borders the National Forest - perfect for stretching your legs before an indulgent Afternoon Tea.

Derbyshire has plenty to offer for everyone- popular Donnington Raceway is close by, as are an abundance of serene country houses, such as Chatsworth House where Pride & Prejudice was filmed.

Explore the stunning Peak District or the Rosliston Forestry Centre, where you can get to grips with orienteering, archery and many more action packed activities!
