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

This is such an amazing place to relax. Lynn and Gary are very friendly and helpful, and made us very welcome. There are so many little touches... sweets, variety of teas, local biscuits, maps and guide books, games, reading books, toiletries, breakfast fit for a king, wine/beer for sale, gorgeous rooms, lovely location.... shall I go on!

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.

We've stayed at the Smithy several times over the last eight years. The welcome from Lynn and Gary is friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautifully decorated and equipped and the breakfasts are superb, using excellent ingredients, beautifully cooked/prepared and well presented. The Smithy is situated in the middle of the White Peak just off the A515 (though we have... More

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

We spent two very comfortable nights at The Smithy. The room was lovely with a comfortable bed. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was fabulous and set us up for two great days out. The owners are on hand for useful advice and the room was stacked with local information and walking guides. A... More

The Smithy is a beautifully converted property in the quiet rural location of Biggin. We stayed in the Bellows room, which was well appointed with ample space. The little touches made it feel like a home from home (I wish our home was as nice!). The breakfast room is truly amazing, a wonderful place to start the day. The English... More
