Welcome to The Cottonworks!
About The Cottonworks
The Cottonworks is nestled away on the banks of the river Derwent in the oldest building in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Darley Abbey Mills.
The idea for The Cottonworks was inspired by many trips to Cornish seaside visiting those fabulous places that manage to ‘double-up’ serving really great coffee’s and breakfast by day, before morphing into lovely intimate bistro’s by night. Hopefully we have captured a little bit of that & transported it to the unique surroundings of Darley Abbey Mills.
