Derbyshire Venues & Accommodation For Every Occasion

Run & Be Rewarded!


We are pleased to be involved with the Derby RSPCA charity race at Carsington on 10th May 2015.

As well as sponsoring the water stations for the race we are delighted to offer the runners and their families a 'Family Open Day' at Knockerdown Cottages.

Runners will be able to join us after the race, use our shower facilities, have a swim in our pool plus join us for a BBQ.


The Carsington 7 + is a 7.76 mile (12.5km) race around the stunning Carsington Reservoir.

This year the Carsington 7+ will follow a route starting and finishing close to the Carsington Water Visitor Centre.

The course will take runners on a full clockwise circuit of the reservoir, taking in spectacular views across the water and the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.

Mainly on cycle track, the course is flat in places but includes some moderate inclines.

We welcome everyone over 17 who wants to run whatever their ability or experience.  

There will also be a shorter run, the Stones Island Spin starting at 10am, for all the family.

The flat traffic free course, starting and finishing at the Visitors Centre, is 3 spins around the Island making a distance of 1 mile in total.
