Located in a quiet street in Tideswell, the house was built by the owners and is tastefully furnished. Our bed was big enough to sleep 3 or 4 and was made by the owners out of polished railway sleepers. Tideswell itself is a bit of a maze and is easy to get lost in if you don't know it. For... More

A very warm welcome with coffee on arrival. The room was very clean with a good stocked tea coffee tray. Lovely touch having it filled up daily. We had the best breakfast in a bed and breakfast ever. Linda is a wonderful cook and a great host. If looking for somewhere to eat go to the Horse and Jockey the... More

Excellent B&B on the edge of a very beautiful and interesting village it occupies a very peaceful location. The room and house were really first class. Make to feel very welcome and the food was excellent. There is a host of walks which start from this village. There are 2 or 3 pubs offering good food within walking distance.

We decided to try the Peak District for a weekend away and I'm so glad that we picked Merman Barn B & B. Linda was a great host and nothing was too much trouble! The room we had was lovely, clean and had everything we needed (including homemade shortbread)!! The breakfasts were amazing too! Tideswell is a great base for... More

Located at the top of the village in a quite semi-rural location is this wonderfully hosted b&b. Nice big rooms with big shower, excellent breakfast, residents lounge and open fire. Just fab if you want something peaceful a little walk round the village or travel further a field.

Initially booked for two nights; we extended for a further two nights. Sadly we didn't extend in time to be able to keep the same room (super king size bed) as it was booked to another couple. We were met at the car on arrival by Linda, who was very friendly and attentive throughout our stay (but without becoming intrusive).... More

Stayed here for two nights with my husband over half term. The B&B is in a lovely secluded spot in Tideswell. Got a really warm welcome from Linda and she cooked us delicious breakfast each morning. It was also wonderful to be able to relax in front of a log fire in the lounge each evening! Perfect location for visiting... More

We stayed for valentines weekend and had a lovely time. The room was nice, tidy, alittle small but had everything it needed and more! The shower was amazingly strong and the added toiletries were a great little bonus. Linda the owner was very welcoming and her breakfast was yummy! It's a shame she doesn't do dinners!! We are keen hikers... More

Recently stayed here on my honeymoon and would thoroughly recommend Merman Barn. Linda and Andrew are great hosts and made us extremely welcome. The place is immaculate and the cooked breakfast was very good whilst not being greasy. Tideswell is in a great location in the peak district and there's loads to do.
