My sister and I booked a room each at this lovely B&B because of its location. My sister wanted to visit Calke Abbey and as we were not hiring a car, I wanted to find a place to stay which was close by. This B&B is virtually next door (about 10min walk to the top of the Calke Abbey drive).... More

We stayed on a Saturday as we were attending a wedding nearby. Chris welcomed us with tea and cake and showed us to our rooms. Both are at the top of the house and are very tastefully decorated. The shower room and bathroom are both immaculate and modern and all the extras (toiletries, towels, biscuits, flat screened TV etc) are... More

We took both rooms for an overnight pitstop, en route to Repton School, nearby. Chris welcomed us and showed us to our rooms, both on the 2nd (top floor). These were large, clean and quiet. Lots of nice decorative touches. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms modern (slight problem with hot water in one of the showers, so we shared).... More

Fantastic b&b! Very accommodating, waited for me to arrive at 10pm! lovely to be welcomed with cake! The room was very comfortable and breakfast was laid out superbly, a lot of choice and very tasty. Perfect location for me as it is situated right next to Calke Abbey. Would highly recommend.

Cannot speak highly enough of this B & B. went the extra mile for us to ensure we could get in early enough to be able to freshen up and change for the wedding we were attending. The rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious, very comfortable and had everything you needed. The breakfast range available was excellent, catered for all tastes... More

We had a wonderful three nights here. After an awful journey ( 5 hours for 160 miles!) it was great to be welcomed so warmly and to be offered tea & cake. The room was excellent and the breakfasts perfect for our full sightseeing days. Chris was a fine hostess ad we will definitely return.

Very welcoming and homely with a lovely breakfast. Room was light and nicely furnished as well as comfortable. Nice to have a 'tea tray' with a good range of drinks and fresh milk! A night here and then a visit to nearby Calke Abbey made for a perfect short break. Whilst I drove to the National Trust property the parkland... More

Derby House in Ticknall, Derbyshire, was a delightful place to stay. The boutique style room at the top of two floors provided every home comfort from hot water bottles to a range of teas as well as coffee. In fact there was also a big bottle of water from which to fill the kettle, a flask of fresh milk and... More

We stayed at Derby House in February and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Chris was a wonderful host and made us feel at home straight away with a cup of tea and homemade Victoria sponge cake which was delicious! Our en suite room was spotlessly clean, light and airy and the decor was superb. The breakfast was brilliant and... More
