Only stayed one night, but would like to return. Very welcoming hosts, comfortable accommodation, excellent breakfast - and probably one of the best locations anywhere, right opposite Thorpe Cloud leading into Dovedale.

what a charming place and lovely owners. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The rooms were Very clean and tidy with a cuppa on arrival. Oh and the breakfast was awesome. Many thanks for your help with the local walks. Top notch and we will be back in the new year!

My husband and I booked Hillcrest House as a getaway to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We had a great time. It is one of the nicest guest houses that i've stayed in. Our room was extremely clean and the breakfast was good quality (homemade break & jam). The owners made us feel very welcome and nothing was any trouble.... More

We had a lovely short break here. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were great with plenty of choice including fresh strawberries and well done bacon. We stayed in Room 2 - a massive and very comfortable bedroom with a large ensuite shower room - and enjoyed wonderful views to the front... More

once again we enjoyed an excellent stay, a very friendly welcome, pleasant comfortable room with lovely views over the countryside. Breakfast to die for, with home made bread and spreads. Highly recommended, very popular. owners thinking of retiring.

We visited the lovely Hillcrest House whilst on a weekend trip to Alton Towers. The directions given were easy enough to follow and you find yourself in a nice quiet rural setting far away from the noisy roads. The room was compact but had everything we needed. Being out most of the day and night didn't spend too much time... More
