After the River Dove abandons the Derbyshire Dales, it winds through the fertile flatlands between Burton-On-Trent and Derby. The area has a pastoral beauty barely touched by modern times. Rolleston-on-Dove is the quintessential Old English village complete with thatched cottages and a babbling brook, The Dove, running through it. This is the setting for The Brookhouse, not just posing postcard-pretty by the river but a charming village character.
The restaurant has an excellent reputation for good food. Soft lights and candlelight reflect in silver and crystal; fresh flowers are everywhere. The bedrooms are splendidly appointed; you will find a truly remarkable collection of antique beds gorgeously caparisoned.
