Hotels & Lodging: The Peacock at Rowsley in England

Julie Carlson October 15, 2010

Built in 1652 and featuring original Elizabethan leaded windows and a stone carved peacock over the entryway, the Peacock at Rowsley was a Peak District fishing lodge in a former life. A few years ago, the property was overhauled by Lord Edward Manners (who presides over nearby Haddon Hall, an 800-year-old crenellated estate in the Derbyshire Dales) as a boutique hotel with 16 ensuite bedrooms. Manners enlisted Paris-based architect and designer India Mahdavi to inject a note of modernity in the interiors; among her design flourishes: armchairs covered in Ralph Lauren tweeds, wing chairs in purple and orange velvets, and accent walls painted in acid green—with modern tartans thrown into the mix. London-based Michaelis Boyd Associates oversaw the architectural renovation; go to the Peacock at Rowsley for more information.
