About this property

Live the luxurious life of a star at Hollywood House. The substantial holiday house sleeps 40 people in 16 bedrooms with 14 bathrooms. It's the perfect group accommodation for hen parties, work events, retreats, and unforgettable celebrations. Amenities include a casino, dining room/conservatory with a bar, a games room, and five acres of grounds with a spa pool, hot tub, and secret cabin in the woods. Hollywood House is two miles from Belper and just over half an hour from Chatsworth House and Alton Towers. 

Hollywood House has space, style and stunning views in a superb location in Blackbrook outside Belper. It's ideal group accommodation for up to 40 people. It has 16 bedrooms themed after cinematic legends, 14 bathrooms, excellent self-catering facilities, a games room and a private casino, and a five-acre garden with a spa pool. Plan a long-awaited family reunion, hen or stag weekend, business or wellness retreat. Hollywood House has been the venue for many celebrations and can provide the perfect backdrop for your special event.

Like many grand country properties, Hollywood House was designed and decorated as a destination. Everything you need is ready and waiting or easily arranged so you and your guests can unwind without leaving its grounds. Recline in the sunshine on a lounger by the plunge pool and hot tub, do yoga outdoors under centuries-old Monkey Puzzle trees, meditate in the woodland cabin, or sit on the patio with a sundowner and enjoy expansive views across the Derwent Valley. Every booking includes a professional croupier for a casino night at the roulette wheel and blackjack table. The owner can help you tailor the perfect package, putting you in contact with everyone from private chefs to beauty therapists and photographers to make your stay completely unforgettable.

Blackbrook is a lovely village in Derbyshire. Hollywood House is two miles from Belper. Cross the River Derwent, and you're in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, in a market town with an excellent independent High Street, award-winning eateries, and a choice of bars and pubs for a relaxed drink or two. The shops in Belper are great but those with a passion for retail therapy should follow the Amber Valley Individual Factory Shop Trail for tantalising bargains.

Walk for miles through beautiful countryside or hire some bikes to explore further. Both activities are excellent ways to build up an appetite or work off the excess of a big meal. Alton Towers and Chatsworth House are each a 30-40 minute drive from Hollywood House. Though offering completely different experiences, they are always popular for days out. Poole Cavern, Crich Tramway Museum, and The Blue John Cavern are alternatives.
