This is the second time we've stayed at Merman Barn. The rooms are really comfortable, the breakfasts are great - including options for a cooked breakfast without it being full English - which is lovely when you're there for a few days. The welcome is fantastic. We will be staying there whenever we're in Tideswell.

Had a great few days away in Tideswell. Merman Barn is a lovely B&B and ideally placed for exploring the Peak District. The room was spotless and had everything we needed. Linda is a great host (attentive without being intrusive) and her breakfasts certainly set us up for the day. Merman Barn is in easy walking distance of the many... More

On arrival, Linda was most welcoming and helpful. The room was spotless, hostess tray was well stocked and homemade shortbread and fresh milk were provided daily. The sitting room was very comfortable and we made use of the excellent selection of literature about the area. We had a fabulous three days and would highly recommend this very comfortable, homely accommodation.... More

We were in the area to attend a wedding. We were greeted warmly by Linda who helped with the luggage. Linda was helpful regarding arranging taxis and with suggestion of places to eat an evening meal. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. There was plenty of choice for breakfast which was very enjoyable.

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
