The owners of this establishment Lynn and Gary made us feel right at home. They were truly interested in where we had been so far on our trip and where we were heading to next. We stayed for two nights and loved every minute of our experience. The rooms are full of character, very clean and comfortable. They gave us... More

We have stayed at the Smithy many times now and it never fails to be anything short of perfect. The rooms are spacious, full of character and beautifully furnished and the Smithy itself provides an interesting and atmospheric breakfast room where you are provided with an excellent tasty and really well presented breakfast. Gary and Lynn are the most lovely... More

This was our second stay at The Smithy and it remains as one of my favourite places to visit. The location is extremely peaceful and quiet, with beautiful views in every direction. The rooms are charming, comfy and always spotless as well as having little added touches making it all the more inviting and enjoyable. Breakfast is delicious and fresh... More

Ideal location for those looking to get away from it all. The accommodation is superb. Clean and well presented with those little extras that make all the difference. The Smithy holds that rustic charm typical of the Derbyshire Peaks but Lynn & Gary just take it that bit further with their personal touch on it all. The breakfast room IS... More

We chose The Smithy because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Set in lovely countryside, the Smithy and barn have been converted into a wonderful B&B. Our hosts, Lynn & Gary, were very welcoming when we turned up on a cold February afternoon and showed us to our room, The Forge, on the upper floor of the barn. The... More

Lynn and Gary were great hosts. Wonderful accommodation with lots of nice little touches; a keen eye to detail which makes all the difference. Breakfast was served in the smithy which was a lovely setting and very good quality. Rooms were well furnished and comfortable. Would recommend.

The Smithy offers you better than you would expect in nearly every department. The hosts are simply fantastic - a warm welcome is just the start. All three of our evening meals were booked for us in local pubs, with a note left in our room letting us know where and when we would dine. Our wet and muddy kit... More

I could not fault this place at all. Our hosts were lovely and the room had every conceivable item you could need for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was amazing and the room was lovely. The setting is very quiet and perfect if you like walking.

Was lucky enough to stay here when attending a local wedding. Gary and Lynn were fantastic hosts - friendly, patient and accommodating. The rooms are clean, nicely appointed and in an annex - so there is freedom to come and go as needed. My favourite thing about the Smithy was the breakfast - possibly the best fried eggs I've ever...

We stayed here as a base for a local Wedding and it was perfect. Gary and Lynn were excellent hosts - helpful, knowledgeable and Gary whipped up a smashing cooked breakfast. The rooms were large and comfortable with en-suites. It was a bit chilly overnight but there were plenty of heaters for use and plenty of blankets. The B&B is... More
