Rowsley lies at the junction of the rivers Wye and Derwent along the A6 between Matlock and Bakewell. The oldest part of the village dates from the seventeenth century and is part of the Haddon estate, including the former dower house for Haddon Hall which was built in 1652 and is now the Peacock Hotel. The Old Station House was built in 1850 by Joseph Paxton for the station master of the new village railway station.
Rowsley is home to Caudwell's Mill, a Grade II listed historic flour mill which is powered by water from the river Wye. Although a flour mill has stood on the site for over 400 years, the present building dates from 1874 and is now a Museum with a shop selling freshly milled flour, the Country Parlour Cafe and a craft centre with workshops including glass making and a blacksmiths. Peak Village, an outlet shopping centre, is also in Rowsley.
Rowsley's pub, the Grouse and Claret, is just down the road from The Old Station House and has an extensive menu, while the award winning East Lodge Country House Hotel and Restaurant, a popular wedding venue, is around the corner from the house.
