We really enjoyed our weekend here. From the minute we were ushered into the living room, complete with roaring fire, books, games and of course pigs and offered tea and biscuits, we were made to feel at home. The room was large and had everything we needed. We arrived at the same time as the butcher delivering sausages so we... More

This was our second visit to the Pig O Lead and we were not disappointed. We had the same room, which had been improved with an updated en suite shower room and I'm told will be further improved with some more lighting in the en suite. The room was warm and comfortable with a very comfy bed. The breakfasts were... More

We always stay at the Pig of Lead each year as it is near to my sister and her family. Julie is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Julie's husband John often gives Julie a hand cooking the wonderful breakfast you will be set up for the day and will not need to eat again until tea time.... More

Our room was lovely - spacious, well equipped and with a huge comfortable bed! Breakfast was delicious and set us up well for the day. The location is handy for walking in the area, and is just a short (steep!) walk into Bonsall where there are a couple of pubs where we had some good meals, and a deli where... More

When I booked this I thought the Pig of Lead was a pub, not that I wanted it to be and I was pleased to find it wasn't. A warm welcome from Julie made sure this was a really enjoyable stay. The rooms and facilities are excellent with everything you need and it's a great place to stay to see... More

Stayed for two nights B&B and could not fault the service I received. Julie welcomed me on arrival with tea and copious quantities of biscuits. The room was clean and warm with everything that I needed. The bed was comfortable. I was delighted to find that the shower enclosure was significantly larger than average and allowed for comfortable movement therein.... More

Stayed for a long weekend and was treated to a great time. The room was clean, it had an en-suite bathroom and the breakfast was to die for, set you up for the day. This B&B is ideal for visiting the White Peak area. We walked quite a lot of the area - Chatsworth Park, Eastern Moor, Carsington Water and... More
