A terrific time at the Devonshire. Everything perfect as a start to our stay. Excellent staff who are welcoming in every way. With packed lunches organised by Katie for the next day, we were staying before a days fly fishing with Peter Lax who gave us his expertise for a simply wonderful day. Two complete novices caught 4 Grayling and... More

Stayed here for one night and was more than happy with our room. Pillows too soft for us but that's a personal thing. Bathroom was lovely and clean , very nice. Breakfast was for me, lukewarm, but I ate it anyway . Nice selection. Would come again and would recommend but next time will bring my own pillow .

Our room was in the Farmhouse which is dog friendly, ideal for us as we have a cairn terrier. Breakfast was good as were dinners which we also chose to have. Staff were very welcoming,... More

We stopped here for one night with a group of friends. The overall experience was a good one, with friendly welcoming staff, and lovely rooms that were very well appointed.

The room was amazing, beautiful decor, nice size, lovely toiletries and spotlessly clean (cleaner than any place i have ever stayed before and thats not an easy feat with the amount of old style charm accessories they have in...

Got off to a bad start when there was no attempt to show us to our room. "One of them two keys should work." However the room was lovely, elegant and comfortable. Don't eat there, the food was atrocious. I ordered a starter with "tomato and onion salad." No tomato and no onion just some undressed leaves. The fish pie... More

A pub in a tiny, quiet village off the B6048. We chose a small double. It was only the main room that was small. The bed king size with a very comfortable mattress and good quality bedding. The bathroom (shower over bath) was large. It was fine for one or two nights, but for longer stay it would have been... More

Very welcoming, even happy to accept our 3 well behaved dogs in the snug area. Restaurant looked excellent although we did not eat, old and modern interior mixed very well. Staff excellent, friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit when you go to Chatworth area
