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

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

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

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!
