Bedrooms & Bathrooms

As you step over the threshold you will find a warren of landings spread over three floors. With a wide choice of freshly decorated light and airy bedrooms, styled with neutral decor, warm creams and coordinating furnishings, the thirteen bedrooms are all a good size (except the bunk bed room which is more compact).

All bedrooms can be made into twin and doubles to offer a flexible room set up for all types of groups. To complement the bedrooms there are a total of 9 en suites and 2 shared bathrooms all newly installed in a gleaming white finish. Your beds are made up for your arrival and for added comfort we provide each guest with fresh towels, hand soap and shower gel.

Cooking & Dining

The generous sized modern fitted kitchen is perfect for groups wanting to totally self cater and cook for themselves. With ample storage, plenty of crockery, cutlery, pot and pans it is well stocked with all the mod cons.

The dining room truly offers a lovely open plan space for group meals with the original Cruck'd beams still on display. You can have flexible layouts for dining dependent on your numbers with solid oak tables, benches and chairs made by local craftsmen.

In the evenings after dinner, you can turn it into a cinema room with viewing on the 72 inch wall mounted TV. There is alternative dining space for more informal meals in a open plan room leading off the kitchen with a large farmhouse table and benches.

Living Spaces

The ground floor of The Green Man is vast, with the original bar area becoming the focal point of the entire stay. Here, you can gather around the wood burning stove, serve your own drinks and perch on a bar stool at the fabulous original bar. This can be stocked as you wish (please note we have to supply the kegs for the pumps) and there is plenty of glassware, wine fridges and even an ice machine behind the bar.

No pub would be complete without entertainment, so just a couple of steps down from the bar area it opens into a games room with pool table and dart board. In addition, you can relax in a cosy lounge are with armchairs and comfy leather sofas.

The Garden and Outside Space

From the dining room doors lead out to is a paved terrace which is perfect for enjoying pre dinner drinks. 

Across from the main building is a large garden laid to lawn. The garden is substantial in its size and is perfect for a kick around or a game of rounders. You can also BBQ here or on the terrace outside the dining room. We provide a oil drum BBQ for your use - just remember to bring  your own charcoal.

Being a former country pub, there is a very large gated car park for your private use.

If you can drag yourselves away from such a wonderful venue, we also have tons of ideas and recommendations if you want to something more adventurous such as off road walking, clay pigeon shooting, caving, abseiling, mountain biking, water sports and rock climbing.


The Peak District and The Surrounding Area

We recommend you venture out and visit the stunning Peak District with its enchanting villages and historic towns such as Buxton, Ashbourne, Leek and Bakewell well as enjoying its glorious ever changing landscapes.

The Peak District National Park offers a spectacular variety of scenery from steep sided limestone dales to the dramatic high moorlands. The Green Man is a short drive from Dovedale, Ilam, Alstonefield and Hartington with their amazing walk routes and there is something for everyone whether you want a challenging hike or a short stroll.

Just down the road you can hire bikes and jump onto The Manifold trail to explore stunning surrounding countryside and awe-inspiring Thor's Cave and Wetton Mill. Another great adventure is to spend the day at Alton Towers Resort with Splash Landings which is just a 7.5 miles drive away via country lanes and provides enough excitement even for the most ardent fun seeker.
