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

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

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

We used this B&B as a base to explore the Peak District for a weekend. We had the most beautiful room, very peaceful and relaxing after a day of walking. Breakfast was delicious and Michael and Heather were happy to cater to tastes. We would happily recommend this B&B again and again.
