UK: Planning permission has been granted for a 71-key hotel in the Peak District

An opportunity to build the largest hotel in the Peak District has arisen after permission as granted for the  given for the construction of a 71-bedroom property.

The hotel will be constructed in local stone on the outskirts of Stoney Middleton, Derbyshire. It will be the first time since 1951 that a new hotel will be built in the park. Accommodation in the Peak District is currently dominated by hotels with fewer than 24 bedrooms and pubs with rooms.

The hotel will house 71 guest rooms, as well as a casual dining restaurant with a wood fire oven, bar and meeting room.

Property consultancy Sanderson Weatherall is marketing the site. Ian Naylor, partner at Sanderson Weatherall, said: "This is a rare and fantastic opportunity to acquire what it set to be the largest hotel in the National Park. The development will benefit year-round from the huge footfall from both national and international visitors to the area, as well as from corporate and other market sectors, and with little competition."

The property will be situated less than 10 minutes from Chatsworth House and the town of Bakewell.
