We experienced excellent service; our room was well appointed, clean and spacious; Merman Barn is located on the quiet outskirts of Tideswell and has very good amenities; we particularly liked the warm welcome we received and the caring service given to us by Linda.

We have just spent 4 lovely days here at a very friendly, clean and professionally run B & B. Linda is a kind and caring lady who provides lots of little touches which makes the stay all that much nicer. Excellent breakfast with a wide choice of menu, not your average full English. An excellent base for touring the Derbyshire... More

Merman Barn is a comfortable 'home from home', centrally located for access to so many of the Peak Districts wonderful attractions. We received a wonderfully warm welcome from Linda, the room was spacious, spotlessly clean with large walk-in wardrobe, superb en-suite and divinely comfortable (enormous!) bed. Breakfast was delicious with a lovely choice of dishes, piping hot coffee or pot... More

Gina and I stayed at the Merman Barn for four nights and from the moment we stepped out of our car on the first day to us driving away five days later we were impressed by the welcome and service we received from Linda. She runs a lovely b+b with two outstanding rooms (rooms 2 + 3) and a third... More

Enjoyed a wonderful stayy at Merman Barn. Linda is very friendly and welcoming, the accommodation is exceptionally clean and comfortable and of course the breakfast was superb. And thank you for the lovely pot of tea and home made shortbread on arrival, just what we needed after a slow journey in the rain on the M1. We'll be back soon.

This is one of the best bb's we have stayed at. It has clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and welcoming owners and first class breakfasts. It is excellently situated to visit many places in the peaks.

Room was cosy,warm and well put together - fridge with water and fresh milk, fresh flowers, fluffy towels and great lounge to sit in at night after a good day out walking. Would definitely stay here again and... More

We planned to visit the Peak District and liked the look of Tideswell as a base. Linda greeted us warmly and showed us to our cosy and clean double room. We took a leisurely walk down the village to the Horse & Jockey for a tasty local produce dinner. The next morning as we were enjoying Linda's wonderful cooked breakfast,... More
