Mr & Mrs Smith Pick Kedleston

The Kedleston Country House has been selected by boutique hotel booking service, Mr & Mrs Smith to partner with, joining an exclusive list of only 157 hotels across England, Derby’s first with only one other in Derbyshire.

Run by Bondholder Derby Brewing Company, The Kedleston Country House is a Grade II listed building, which recently celebrated its first anniversary. 

The 250-year-old property, between Allestree and Kedleston village, has undergone a £1.3 million refit and becomes the fourth pub to be opened by the family-run brewery in fewer than eight years.

Paul Harris, Director of Derby Brewing Company, said: ‘We have long wanted to work with Mr & Mrs Smith, a real standard for quality in the Boutique hotel sector, Mr & Mrs Smith as it has an excellent reputation for featuring unique, boutique hotels for those looking for a romantic break away, or something a little different. All their hotels are handpicked and go through an extensive screening process to feature on their website and are anonymously reviewed to ensure they are of the highest quality.

Hotels need to match a range of different criteria to be included and with our relaxed, welcoming and informal style, modern country house feel, combined with all the added extra like our bespoke complimentary Gin in the bedrooms at The Kedleston; we feel it is the perfect fit for us.’
