Just spent 3 nights at this super B&B ...lovely character property with spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms/facilities. Our enjoyable weekend in this delightful location was further enhanced by excellent hosts Julie and John who are extremely friendly and professional; Julie is a breath of fresh air! Breakfasts were great too; served with a smile and a 'nothing is too much... More

The moment you walk through the door Julie makes you really welcome.Top floor room magnificent, the bed was out of this world.Nothing is too much trouble at breakfast time and is probably one of the best english breakfasts i've had.Good for walking Bonsall,Matlock,Matlock Bath Cromford, Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here when visiting Chatsworth Horse Trials & the House - lovely place to stay. Well appointed nice clean room with tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc and a huge comfy bed. Very friendly down to earth owner (she loves her horror films) who gave us coffee and biscuits on arrival FOC! Very tasty breakfast and plenty of it. Nice atmosphere... More

We stayed here for my husbands birthday. It was lovely, very clean, delicious breakfast, warm, very friendly owner. A short walk into Bonsall village, and only a few miles into Matlock. I'd recommend it. Wish we could have stayed longer to try more of the walks surrounding it!

Lovely warm place to stay, our weekend was rather cool and wet! Our hosts cooked a wonderful breakfast with a huge choice, it kept us going all day and try the rhubarb and ginger jam it's very tasty. The bed in our room was huge as was the TV. In the lounge there were lots of books and DVDs you... More

Cosy B&B with friendly and welcoming host Julie. We had a double room. The bed was comfy and we were able to sleep with the window open to keep the room cool at night. There is large comfortable guest lounge with a warm welcoming solid fuel stove and a good range of books, board games and DVDs available to borrow.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Our hosts, John and Julie, were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable, and breakfasts were excellent. Our room faced a fairly busy road, so was sometimes noisy with the window open, but with window closed it was fine, so not a major problem. Would recommend this B & B.

Pig of Lead was an excellent find, well situated for access to Matlock and Cromford and a lovely (but hilly!) walk to Bonsall village. Julie is an excellent host, showed us round and made us feel really welcome with a hot drink and biscuits in the lounge. The breakfasts are wonderful and nothing felt too much trouble - really liked... More
