A shopping destination, owned by The Devonshire Group, has welcomed a flurry of new arrivals, including Denby Pottery.

Peak Village, at Rowsley, has recently seen the opening of a new Denby store, as well as a women’s designer fashion shop called Dotique.

The newest arrival will be Dr Derbyshire’s Emporium, the brainchild of Derbyshire Distillery, which is due to open in October, offering an all-round experience for gin-lovers.

Katayune Jacquin, centre manager at Peak Village, said: “It’s a real vote of confidence in the changes we’re making that Derbyshire Distillery, Denby and Dotique have all committed in the past few weeks.

“A huge amount of work is being done to improve the site and that’s generated a lot of interest from aspirational brands looking for a suitable outlet near to Chatsworth, Bakewell and Matlock.

“We’re expecting to announce more exciting new shops and events by the end of the year and for Peak Village to become a real ‘must-go’ destination for locals and visitors alike.”

Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Peak Village hosts nearly 20 shops and employs between 80 and 100 people.

It was bought earlier this year by the Devonshire Group, the company that represents the interests of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire at nearby Chatsworth.

Around £1 million has been committed to its redevelopment with more than half already spent on essential repairs, redecoration, refitting of vacant units, and the landscaping of public areas with planters and new street furniture.

Andrew Byrne, property development director at The Devonshire Group, said: “The ongoing upgrade of facilities is good news for Peak Village, which was underinvested for some years previously, and it's good news for the local economy.

“This investment has secured existing local jobs and is creating new jobs both directly and through the local companies and suppliers we’re working with.

“What’s more, Peak Village will be drawing in millions of pounds of retail revenue to the Derbyshire economy.”
