Dan and Margaret were wonderful hosts. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable King size and the bathroom excellent in design and their corner shower was great. The breakfast was excellently cooked, using local produce, including Derbyshire Oat cakes. Sited on the crest of the hill next to Thorpe Cloud, proved to be very peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Dan and Margaret welcomed us with a cup of tea in the garden. The rooms were spacious, with fluffy dressing gowns ready for use. The breakfast was delicious, plentiful, with fresh bread made by Dan, we were minutes away from Dovedale, perfect for walking and sight seeing

We stayed for 7 days in the self contained two bedroom holiday cottage attached to Hillcrest House. The cottage has everything you need for an extended stay and was truly a home from home. We also enjoyed the facilities in the main B&B (Including the excellent honesty bar) The proprietors, Dan & Margaret, are excellent hosts and provide just the... More

Literally, the only problem I had other than the bed itself was the reception seems to close before 10pm (a fairly slight problem, and only because I was badly delayed in arriving and had no phone signal to call the number tacked on the door; luckily, this time I was part of a pair sharing a twin room, and I...

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.

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
