History of the hotel

The George as it was originally known is believed to have been first built in the fourteenth or fifteenth century.  At that time it would have been an alehouse serving the packhorse trains trudging between the quarries of Castleton and the foundries of Sheffield.  They deposited the metal wrought in Sheffield to be made into buttons and needles at England's first needle factory in Hathersage.  Traffic between there and Sheffield became such that in the 1700's a turnpike had to be built, and it was around that time that 'The George' came to be called an 'Inn'.

The first recorded owner of the George was the Duke of Devonshire, who sold it to one James Eyre in 1839; in 1841 it was acquired by James Morton, who must have developed his hostelry significantly, for a writer of the day appears to have been the first to refer to it as an 'Hotel'.  Perhaps as a consequence of that another writer, the since acclaimed Charlotte Bronte, whilst visiting friends in Hathersage vicarage became a familiar patron at the George. Indeed she was evidently so enchanted by Hathersage that she used it and its characters as models for one of her books, Jane Eyre.  Charlotte Bronte based the name of her heroine Jane on the Eyre family who previously owned the George, and set her story in Hathersage, renaming in Morton after James Morton the George Hotel's Landlord.  Coincidently but more recently, the present owner of the George, Eric Marsh, a tenant of the Duke of Devonshire's estate appeared in the 1995 film Jane Eyre shot on location in the Peak District.

A succession of individual proprietors operated the George until 1876, when local Sheffield brewery Tennants acquired it (for £700), and it was held by them and their parent company Whitbreads until it was purchased by the present owners in 1996.  At that time the entire hotel was completely renovated, whilst its original character was preserved by tasteful retaining of stone walls, oak beams, open fires and antique furniture.

Location & Local Attractions

SHOPPING AT CHATSWORTH FARM SHOP

Established by the Duchess of Devonshire in 1977 this award winning farm shop is proud of its history and philosophy.

More than half of all products are either produced or prepared on the Chatsworth estate, and with plenty of free parking, the shop is well worth a visit.

VISIT CHATSWORTH HOUSE

Chatsworth is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family.

The house is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.

HARDWICK HALL

'Hardwick Hall, more glass than wall', is a well-known local saying that characterises one of the key features of Hardwick, the exuberant use of glass, an expensive and rare material in 1590s England. Hardwick is a house that shouted innovation from the same rooftops that proclaimed the builder of the house, Elizabeth Shrewsbury, the Countess of Shrewsbury, with her initials ‘ES' sitting atop the turrets of the house.

HEIGHTS OF ABRAHAM

A great family day out, with lots of attractions including cable car views, restaurants and adventure playgrounds for children.

HADDON HALL

Haddon Hall is probably the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house in existence. Present-day Haddon Hall dates from the 12th Century to the early 17th Century, whereupon it lay dormant for over two hundred years from 1700 until the 1920s, when the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens, and once again made it habitable.

STANAGE EDGE

Just north of The George Hotel, Stanage Edge is a popular place for walkers and rock climbing with stunning views of the Dark Peak moorlands and the Hope Valley.

HIDDEN CHESTERFIELD

Take a day in Chesterfield itself to find out how the 'Crooked Spire' got its twist. Or go bargain hunting on Chesterfield Market every Monday, Friday or Saturday. Get a taste of history at Chesterfield Museum or spend an evening at the Theatre.

EXPLORE DELIGHTFUL BAKEWELL

Famed for its Puddings, Bakewell is set in an enviable location on the banks of the Wye, this beautiful old market town is in the heart of the Peak District, surrounded by stunning countryside views. Markets are held every Monday in the town centre and there is a thriving livestock market.

GO HIKING OR BIKING

Although the Peak District is famed for its hills, it offers many trails and bridleways to suit all walkers and cyclists, from the most energetic to the more leisurely.

Pretty villages, superb views, interesting history, fascinating wildlife and geology – it's all here for you to enjoy.

STROLL THE DERBYSHIRE DALES

The Derbyshire Dales offers many beautiful walks to suit all.

These include a gentle 4 mile stroll along Curbar Edge and Froggatt Edgeor, for the more ambitious, there's the much more strenuous test doing the 6 Dales Circuit – a little under 27 miles!

EXPLORE THE CASTLETON CAVERNS

Castleton is the centre of Peak District caving, with numerous interesting caves, pot-holes and former mines to explore.

These include both Peak Cavern, which is probably the longest local cave system and Titan, the recently discovered pothole which is the deepest cave system in Britain.

A NIGHT AT THE THEATRE

Sheffield Theatres is the largest theatre complex outside London. Across three auditoria: the Crucible, the Lyceum and the Crucible Studio, it offers a huge variety of home-grown and touring productions, as well as a thriving programme of participatory events and activities.

TIME FOR A ROUND OF GOLF?

The Peak District has many fine golf courses with the closest to George being Sickleholme Golf Club.

The Cavendish Golf Club in Buxton is thought by some to be Dr MacKenzie's most accomplished work in the UK and quite possibly the best layout in the world under 6000 yards.

HATHERSAGE OPEN AIR SWIMMING POOL

Hathersage has a large (100ft X 33ft) public swimming pool.

The pool is open air – one of a dwindling number of such pools – with water heated to 82°F (28°c), hot poolside showers, lawns and views of Stanage Edge, Hathersage Church and the surrounding hills.

TRY FISHING ON LADYBOWER RESERVOIR

Fishing can be arranged on Ladybower Reservoir (just 2 miles away in Bamford) by contacting the fishery office directly on 01433 659 712 or visit www.ladybowerfisheries.co.uk for opening hours, prices and further information.
