Stayed here for a very cold and snowy weekend in January. Although it was was nice and cosy and warm inside! There was a good hearty breakfast, a nice clean cosy room, as well as access to a good guest lounge and Linda the host was very welcoming and we even got fresh baked cookies on the evening we arrived....

We opted to stay here for a chilled out break after Christmas and New Year festivities and couldn't have picked better. It's perfectly located on the edge of the village, just a short walk into the village and stunning views out to the country. The breakfast was gorgeous, couldn't ask for better. Good food and very well cooked. Rooms are... More

Stayed here en route to Cumbria and had a pleasant stay. Fresh milk for tea always puts me in a good mood! Excellent breakfast and off street parking is a plus in a fascinating Derbyshire village location.

We had a lovely stay here. The bed was huge and we liked having easy chairs in our room. There was a guest lounge also available, with a bigger TV. Breakfast was extensive and very well prepared; fruit salad, yogurt, cereal and lots of cooked options-perfect poached eggs, something not always found! Tideswell is a pretty and interesting village with... More

Six days of cool, but fine, autumn weather matched with beautiful countryside and a warm welcome from Linda and Andrew gave us the break we had hoped for. Room was spacious enough for luggage and the giant bed (room 2) extremely comfortable. Ensuite was more than adequate and plenty of hot water Breakfast menu was extensive and cooked and presented...

After staying at Merman Barn approximately 4 years ago we decided to stay again. We were again made very welcome by Linda and found the house warm and comfortable. Breakfast was still very good with plenty of choice and cooked to order so it was always hot and fresh.

Merman Barn lives up to its reputation - a friendly and helpful hostess, a quiet location within easy walking distance of pubs and the village, well appointed room with all that you need and plenty of choice for breakfast. An excellent base for a short break in the Peak District.

During the 2015 Tour of Britain cycle race (Sept 2015) I booked up at Merman Barn as Tideswell was convenient for the race. The rooms were of excellent size and quality, as was the breakfast, but then so was everything else. There were little extras that made the visit good, like fridge in bedroom to keep your fresh milk fresh... More

We stayed at the Merman Barn for two nights when we went to the Chatsworth Country Fair. It is super. We were made very welcome by Linda who showed us round and to our room. Our room was lovely. It was very comfortable and spacious and the en-suite was so clean I could see my face in the tiles. In... More
