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

Spend a very enjoyable weekend at this B&B. Excellent food and plenty of it. Rooms clean and spacious. Very obliging hosts. It is quite near to Matlock, Matlock Bath, Bakewell etc, and if you are into walking an Ideal "base camp". Found Matlock Bath great for eating out. If you are into fish and chips they fantastic here. I think... 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

Just loved our stay at Pig of Lead. Host went above and beyond!!!! Lovely clean open rooms, fantastic bed (slept like a rock) and modern bathrooms! Thank you so much - wish we could have stayed longer. Felt like a home away from home but had plenty of privacy and sound proof rooms (just what you want on your honeymoon).

I stayed here for the weekend and arrived early evening. Our room was on the top floor and was very nice, had plenty of room and was very well equipped. The breakfast was very nice and nothing was too much trouble for the owner. Would definitely recommend and will definitely use this place again.

Ideally located for exploring the wonderful Derbyshire Dales, The Peak, District and The Start of the industrial Revolution. The Pig of Lead is a converted former pub with an interesting history of its own. Now thoughtfully restored to provide very comfortable en suite rooms. The bed was extremely soft and lovely linen and towels. Very friendly welcome and service. The... More

The Pig of Lead has an interesting history and features lots of pigs. We were made very welcome and had a nice room with all the necessary facilities. Breakfast is excellent. Can be noisy in the morning with quarry lorries. It is well placed to visit all the attractions of this beautiful area.

First time visit with my better half who couldn't praise it enough so happily booked. Not only is the area simply breath taking to drive into, the location of the Pig of Lead couldn't be any easier to find! As soon as we walked in, the owner Julie made us feel instantly welcome although I think I accidently started scoffing... More

This is the second time I've visited and once again it was a perfect visit from start to finish. Julie couldn't be a better host. The room was warm, spotlessly clean and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Breakfast is amazing (perfectly cooked eggs) and Julie has lots of information about things to do in the...
