We have stayed here several times...both in the hall itself, and in one of the cottages with friends. All of our stays have been wonderful...we love the location, the interesting old house, the beautiful gardens...and we enjoy visiting with the owner, too. Our experiences have all been very happy ones: we find the rooms nicely decorated...the views from the windows... More

Really can't fault this place. It's stunning in many ways. The hall, the gardens and the views. I highly recommend it and we will definitely go again didn't want to leave. It was a luck find online. Bobby the owner was very hospitable and the breakfast was spot on. Get yourself there. You will love it.

This was the third stay for us at Cressbrook Hall. We have now spent two glorious Christmases here. This Christmas we were snowed in! Not a problem as the hosts were more than happy to help us out. This is an amazing cottage, with exceptional views and superbly equipped. I have now cooked Christmas Dinner here twice! Very high levels... More

Me and my partner stayed here in July 2014 and it was exceptional! We were shown our room by a youngish male who was so relaxed and laid back yet attentive to our needs. Rooms are large, bath room is large and the views on to the hills left us speechless! The beds were hard to leave in the morning... More

This is a review of one of the cottages of Cressbrook Hall and not the hotel/b&b. Booked the Top Spot cottage as a last minute. The cottage is a rebuild part of the possibly stables or such and are very bright and airy. Large windows and patio door looking all out over the valley, fantastic. Well equipped cottage with 2...

We had a lovely stay at Cressbrook just before New Year, there was snow everywhere, the Derbyshire Dales National Nature Reserve looked amazing, the national park is just over the River Wye above where Cressbrook Hall sits, a perfect setting for sitting in front of the open fire with a glass of wine. We were only able to stay one... More

On our first visit to the UK, my husband and I selected Cressbrook Hall as one of our three venues to taste the variety of English landscapes and accommodations. We could not have chosen better to stay at Cressbrook!! Our apartment was well appointed with a modern kitchen, sitting and dining rooms and three bedrooms with baths, each room offering... More

Actually finding Cressbrook Hall was an adventure as it is not very well signposted and the entrance plaque is very small and discreet. Once we did arrive the welcome was lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Veronica had even pre booked a local taxi, 2nice private hire, to take our party into Bakewell. We stayed at the Top Spot Cottage... More

I stayed here for two nights together with a group of colleagues for a mixture of a meeting and a team building event! Excellent facilities with a range of interesting and different layouts. The catering is to an excellent quality and the ladies that looked after us were brilliant throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them!... More

My colleague booked the venue as we needed a meeting room plus a base for a charity walk we had committed too. The main building is a lovely piece of architecture to be greeted by after a short & sweeping drive through the grounds. The bedrooms in the cottages were a little dated & basic but very clean.. and I... More
