I stayed here at the end of July and found the owner to be overbearing, inflexible and intrusive. The rules and regulations are absurd; only fill your bath a few inches high, don't close the curtains, put your case on the designated stand etc. I was scared even to make a cup of tea or coffee in the room in...

Why oh why do people like you take such joy in taking everything so negatively and exaggerating things to such an extreme level. This again says so much more about you than it does us. You have nit picked every little detail that you possibly could, and taken it to a ridiculous extreme. Thank the lord we have so many... More

Well what a wonderful place and Mike the host was more than welcoming and made our stay a lovely one. We had it lucky with the other guests too as they were all great people and conversation flowed between tables. The breakfast was one of the nicest I've had with great attention to presentation. We will return as the room... More

I stayed at Thorpe house for the two nights in early July 2015. I would not stay again and I would not recommend Thorpe House to others. The issue for me was my perception of the attitude of the hosts - an attitude which can perhaps best be described as an overriding inflexibility evidenced, for example, by a very detailed... More

"My stay at Thorpe Cottage contrasted so much with the warm, helpful and relaxed stays of other reviewers! Maybe that says much more about you than us. Thank goodness you have no intention of returning! You would not be allowed. If you find terms and conditions in your room to be so offensive, (which is required by law in this... More

We were greeted by name with an incredibly warm welcome and the guest house has impeccable attention to detail. I have never stayed in such a spotlessly clean room. Which I must add was very good value for money and felt homely and was well decorated. Would recommend and stay again.

Mike and Heather have the most beautiful cottage and their attention to detail is spot on. The breakfasts are so tasty with fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, fresh orange and a full cooked English. The location is good as its so close to Ilam and Dovedale and the town of Ashbourne with loads of attractions within a half hour drive. You... More

My Wife and I arrived on Sunday night for a 6 night stay to be welcomed by Mike , our host , with a lovely cup of tea. The Dovedale room had plenty of wardrobe space and a very nice en-suite shower room. Everywhere was very clean and well kept to a very high standard. Breakfast is excellent with a... More

Greeted on arrival by Mike and had good impression. Unfortunately breakfast was only served at one specified time and there was no choice - only Continental and full English (one after the other). Owner reluctant to move time for breakfast. We assumed payment would be made on leaving only to be advised that payment had already been taken from our... More

Well the things you find "disappointing" were all explained to you at the time of booking, also in writing and on our website, so a little confused as to how many more times/ways we could have said this? We hide nothing. We state on our website, upon booking and again upon arrival that everyone eats at 9am together, and that... More

We arrived about 6 pm as planned the owner Mike greeted us warmly and made us a drink. We then went up to the room it was so homely and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious too with... More

We arrived late and were me with a very welcoming cup of team and coffee by the host, Mike. We were so impressed by the recommendations of hostelries in the area and selected well. Mike recommended some good walks and the following day we followed his advise and managed a walk of over 12 miles. I had very particular breakfast... More
