Very good B&B. We stayed in the family 'room', which was really two rooms - one with a double bed and one with 2 single beds. It was spacious and clean, with lovely views across the countryside. The hosts, Kevin and Jennie, were friendly, and we enjoyed tasty and substantial cooked breakfasts. The only downside was the shower in the... More

This cottage is absolutely beautiful. Our bedroom overlooked wonderful fields,filled with cows and their calves. Chickens roamed freely and there was a lovely selection of garden birds. Leading from the cottage was our first walk which took us to the ridge. Navigating our way through the fields with cows and sheep was brilliant! Fantastic views although the second day low... More

We stayed overnight planning to walk both days. The accommodation is about 10 mins walk in to the village, most of which is on a pavement. Part way along the road is a lay-by which was ideal to park the car while we walked. The pub in the village is very welcoming and serves good food all day. A choice... More

Pleasant remote rural setting, with good views and quiet. Walks from the doorstep across open fields. Pretty garden. Friendly hosts. Excellent plentiful breakfast freshly cooked to order and lots of tea/coffee (and in bedroom). We had a family room with large double bed and 2 twins next door and small shower room/toilet which was fine for us but not plush... More

This lovely B&B is located bang on the A623, so is dead convenient and easy to find, but surprisingly we could not hear any traffic at all from our room, and opening the curtains each morning to reveal a view over the pretty garden and the rolling fields and hills beyond was a total pleasure. There are a few comments... More

A nice little B&B very well situated close to some beautiful countryside. Views from the cottages were lovely. However the rooms are very small and a bit dated. The bathrooms are tiny. The breakfast was okay, but not exceptional. The guests have the use of a little lounge which is good. The hosts were very helpful and there were local... More

Housley cottage is a lovely bed and breakfast. Hosts Kevin and Jenny were very knowledgeable on the area and what to do each day. The location of the cottage was perfect for going walking, heading towards Bakewell (Chatsworth) or Castleton. It is not far (5/10 minutes) to Foolow, the closest village with a pub. The breakfast was fantastic and set... More
