This is an ideal base for Peak District walking (which was the purpose of our trip). There are some lovely walks right on the doorstep, including climbing the 'Cloud.' The breakfast was amazing, most of the food was home made/local produce and the difference was noticeable. The service was very friendly and when we got back from our walk we... More

I booked a 2 night stay here the day before bank holiday weekend. We had stayed here previously, 12 years ago. We were lucky to get a cancellation. The hosts and the accommodation were both as we remembered them. The breakfast was first class and the hosts were so helpful, giving us ideas of what to do on wet days.... More

I cannot begin to say how pleased I was with the stay. Everything was perfect! I stayed with my mum and it was amazing. Service was impeccable, greeted back with a genuine, warm host and a tray of tea/coffee. The rooms were brilliant, large, clean and warm beds were extremely comfy and a pleasure to sleep in. There was a... More

There wasa beautifully fitted shower/WC en suite. Beautiful views across the fields to greet one the next morning! The breakfast was enormous and perfectly cooked, with... More

Going back for the second time this was all we remembered. Pleasant, personal welcome, tour of the house and room, followed by a pit of tea. Comfortable rooms , huge and delicious, mainly home made, breakfast. Oh, and a pot of tea on return every day!

Thoroughly enjoyed our third visit to Hillcrest House. Welcoming and friendly owners, Dan and Margaret (not forgetting Lady the black Labrador). Lovely house and gardens. Country views to all sides. Great walking area. Very clean nicely decorated bedroom with comfy bed. Excellent home cooked hearty breakfast. Cosy home from home guest lounge. Hope to go back again soon.

I arrived here about 5pm, on foot, after a 15 mile walk, only to discover the local pub was closed for refurb with the nearest alternative 3 miles away. To my surpise and delight, the owner insisted on offering me the leftovers from his own dinner (they'd made a bit too much, fortunately) and so I sat down to a... More
