“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Easy to find and easy to get around locality from here. Room was lovely, clean and spacious with lovely shower room en suite. Given the weather was cold and damp, the room was warm and cosy.

John and Julie were riendly and welcoming hosts - served us an enormous breakfast which kept us going most of the day.

both were happy to share their sense of humour and make their guests feel welcome without being intrusive

Room Tip: Our room was at the front of the house but the place is so well insulated it was quiet and dark enou...

We had our first experience of the Peak District and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Pig of Lead was our choice after looking st reviews on Trip Advisor. The location is withing easy access of major routes yet secluded enough to give a country feeling. Julie and her husband were very hospitable with plenty of information on locations to visit around Peak District. The B&B was very clean with a very special charm to it. Even had the pleasure of enjoying a nice fire by the fireplace in the month of May. The rooms were big and kept to a high standard with enough room for a travel cot in it. The big flat screen tv was nice with a choice of dvds to pick from if wanting to relax in the evening after long walks at Chatsworth, Keddleston and Sudbury halls. I would gladly recommend Pig of Lead to anyone who would like to see Peak District.

Thank you so much for a lovely chilled out weekend. A great welcome, bed REALLY comfy, big wide screen TV, bathroom spotless, very clean all round - and great great great breakfast! Would recommend to all!

The only downside, is that it's on a main road, and at bank holiday or busy summer time loads of bikers vrmmm past the window! Couldn't fault the accommodation though.

Room Tip: Top floor (black & white theme) - really wide, comfy bed.

We had a very lovely time at the Pig of Lead. It is the best B&B I've ever stayed in with the tastiest cooked breakfast. Julie is a great host, very personable (we were even given mini Easter eggs at breakfast on Easter Sunday!). We stayed in the super king-size room, the bed was huge and very comfortable. Clean, spacious, great bath/shower, all in all a great place. I do think you need a car if you are staying here though as some of the restaurants and sites we wanted to see were too far away to walk. We always had a parking space at the B&B though which was great.

The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and had a lovely, big comfortable bed. They have a tv and DVD player, with DVDs in the living room which you are able to help yourself to. The shower is very good and there is plenty of room to hang clothing etc. The breakfast is very tasty and the owners are friendly and very approachable.
