The Maynard

This centrally located Peak District boutique hotel boasts an impressive interior with chandeliers, ornate windows and a display of local art. It’s quirky and fun, without compromising on style. The food here has won awards and if an award for local beauty spots were possible, The Maynard would surely win one, thanks to its proximity to Padley Gorge, a great setting for a few photos.

We can take plenty of photos of you and your guests strolling through Padley Gorge, as well as through the stunning gardens. It's a dog friendly venue so if you want your pooch to be part of your big day, you're most welcome at the Maynard. Dogs always make a delightful addition to your wedding photography, but make sure you assign somebody else the role of looking after your dog on the day!

There are a number of function rooms to choose from here. The Windsor room has a capacity for 50, while the Chatsworth suite seats up to 120. For an evening reception it can accommodate up to 200 guests. There are 10 ensuite bedrooms to house close family and friends following the celebrations, including a bridal suite, so the celebrations can go on into the night! The dedicated wedding team here will help you choose the room that will best suit your needs and help you coordinate the decor. They’re very friendly and helpful.

To get a better idea of what the individual function rooms look like, please have a look through my Maynard photo gallery. These images should help you decide whether this beautiful country venue has the potential to be a great venue choice for you.
