My wife and I stayed at The Smithy for our anniversary a few weeks ago and we were extremely impressed. The location is very scenic and quiet (a little difficult to spot from the road) but within walking distance of a nice pub, restaurant (Lynn even made reservations for us) and the Tissington Trail where we went for a wander....

We stayed in the Swage, a lovely room with a very comfortable bed. The room had everything you could possibly need, including local information, walks, places to eat. Plenty of tea and coffee and biscuits. A lovely touch, bottled water is available in a fridge just outside the rooms. There is a lovely lounge with WiFi and breakfast is served... More

The room was beautifully decorated and it had everything I could have wanted including lots of tourist information. The bed was very comfortable, I slept very well and there was lots of hot water. The breakfast every morning was delicious and Gary and Lynn were very welcoming and had good advice on touring in the Peak District.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend and we were very impressed. Lovely people who were running the show. Perfect breakfast. We walked the Tissington Trail and ventured into Buxton. Ate out at the Carriages Italian restaurant at Newhaven - good food and wonderful service. Also ate at the Waterloo Inn but didn't feel the same level of welcome... More

Absolutely stunning buildings in stunning surroundings. There are only 4 rooms in the barn itself. We stayed in "Bellows" on the first floor and it felt like a home away from home, with lovely little touches dotted all around it which gave the place real character. Communal facilities such as the breakfast room (a sight to behold in itself, being... More

The initial welcome was so wonderfully warm, friendly and helpful that one immediately felt 'at home with friends'. The room was very well furnished and the facilities superb. The breakfast was absolutely perfect both in the wide choice and in the composition and quality of the cooked food.

My girlfriend and I stayed here over a weekend last Spring. I believe the story is: A few years ago Lynne and Gary, the owners, bought a house to live in. Next to the house was a run down old barn. They've done it up and made a perfect little guesthouse with 4 rooms. We just wanted to get away... More
