Here in Derbyshire, we are at the heart of some of the best adrenaline adventures in the UK. While at the Boars Head, we might be nestled away in a small and sleepy town, we are perfectly central to some of the wonderful things that not only our county but surrounding counties have to offer. So if you find yourself a bit of an adrenaline junkie, or know someone that is, why not take a look at some of the things that surround our sleepy little hotel.
Is the sun blazing, but you still want to get your snowboarding fix? Do you miss the slopes? Or is it something you’ve always wanted to try out? Well, why not! Over at Swadlincote snowboarding centre, they offer lessons to those who have never been on a slope and open practice to those who are well versed in skiing or snowboarding! Of course, there are tubes and tobogganing if that’s more your speed, adrenaline junkie? Head over to the website for more information!
You cannot call yourself an adrenaline junkie if you have never heard of Alton Towers. Just a short drive away from the hotel, you will find the world-renowned theme park with some of the most famous rides around. Firstly, we have the Smiler, boasting a tremendous 14 spirals, and currently holding the world record, to the gut-wrenching oblivion, when was the last time your stomach was in your mouth huh? While we love the Alton Towers hotel, and believe me, we do, we also know how important it is to be central to all your other activities! So if you’re looking for hotels near Alton Towers, you’ve found us!

Set amongst the trees, you’ll get your thrills while taking in some of the county’s great outdoors!
