A Family Stay at the Casa in England’s Peak District

If you’re traveling through the North of England and head to the Peak District with your family, you’ll want to make sure to stay at the Casa in Derbyshire. You can’t beat this 4-star hotel’s excellent location.  It’s in the historic market town of Chesterfield, but is in easy reach of Sheffield, Nottingham and a number of landmarks and attractions.  It’s also very family-friendly as the hotel really focuses on comfort and you can’t find a nicer staff in all of England.

When we entered the hotel, we were greeted by a pleasant and upbeat host at reception who welcomed us and made sure we had everything we needed.

When my kids discovered they had their own room for the 2nd night in a row (see my post on the Lowry Hotel), they were elated.  We were given adjoining rooms and on their beds were two activity packs filled with coloring books and games.  It really makes a difference for a family of 4 or more, especially with growing children like ours (who are 7 & almost 9) to have separate rooms.  It gives everyone space, privacy and less time to annoy one another.  Both of our rooms (they had a twin, we had a double) had a flat-screen TV, luxury rain showers, a big closet with a safe and a wonderful electric tea pot which we used regularly.

For dinner, we dined at the hotel’s Cocina Restaurant, their rosette awarded restaurant where chefs cook using Spanish charcoal fired ovens.  The restaurant has high-quality Spanish food, to go along with the theme of the hotel, and offers kid’s meals for ½ price of any item.  Both of my kids happily munched on bread and pasta, while we tested out their tapas and fish dishes.
Other perks of the hotel include that it is located across the street from a Super Tesco which sells everything, if you need food or find that you’ve left anything at home.  My son happened to discover holes on the bottom of his shoes, so we were able to buy a pair there (phew!).  And I love that the hotel offers complimentary high-speed (wired) Internet access, a rare find in England.  They also have a full-service gym and it came in handy.  The weather outside was brutal, as we came to England during an April snow storm.

The Casa offers special packages that include full breakfast for everyone in the family, as well as admission to local attractions.   You should check it out as the rates are quite reasonable and the space more plentiful than your average English hotel.  As you can see from my daughter’s face (check out her new English rain coat!), our stay at Casa was just what the doctor ordered

The Casa is located at Lockoford Lane, Chesterfield, S41 7JB, Tel: +44 (0)1246 245999.
