If you prefer a hotel, try http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/RIPBUT/ripley?DCMP=KNC_D__BND, which is about 10 mins from the yard/studio.
There are two lovely B&Bs from £39 per person per night also near Belper which is 10 mins away- www.amberhills.co.uk (horsey person lives here so you may well be kept amused with riding chit-chat!) or www.chevingreenfarm.org.uk- this one is particularly highly recommended by previous clients/trainees.
