We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Old Vicarage. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean. Nicky, the owner, was extremely helpful and friendly and cooked perfect breakfasts every day - we highly recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg and the homemade bread and jams were delicious!
This b&b is perfectly situated for walking in the local area of Dovedale and the Manifold valley. Thor's cave is a short walk away and worth a visit. During our stay we took the opportunity of a visit to Alton Towers which is only a 25 min drive away.
The local pub is very conveniently located and has a beer garden and friendly staff. Other nice pubs for lunch or an evening meal can be found within a few miles.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This beautiful Country House is set in over an acre of secluded gardens in the heart of the peak District National Park. Originally built by The Chatsworth Estate, The Old Vicarage has been lovingly restored and offers a home from home full of character and charm,in the pretty stone village of Wetton. With literally dozens of walks and cycle rides straight from the door and a traditional pub only 2 minutes walk, it is a great base to explore this picturesque area. Wake up to the aroma of Nicky's freshly baked breads served with organic home made jams and a tasty freshly grilled breakfast. We are also ideally located for exploring the pretty marker towns of Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton and the many National Trust properties in the area as well as Chatsworth House and Alton Towers.
