“Best B&B in Buxton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We have just come back from a 3 night stay over Easter. This is our 3rd stay at Barms Farm and won't be our last. Lorraine is a lovely warm friendly host who makes you feel welcome and at home. We have stayed in all tthree rooms and they are all immaculate. The beds are very comfortable with luxurious 'The White Company' bedding. There are plenty of places to eat in Buxton which you can walk to but we have tended to drive to The Church Inn at Chelmorton or The Beehive at Combs. Simply Thai in Buxton looks lovely but we haven't tried it yet (my hubby isn't a lover of hot or spicy foods)
In the colder months the fire is lit in the guest lounge and it is nice to relax with a glass of wine.
There is a utility room which has a fridge and fresh milk if required.
There is plenty of choice for breakfast, a lovely selection of fresh fruits, yogurt and granola.
Before finding this B&B I spent many hours on the internet looking for accomodation in either Bakewell or Buxton - I have found the best and I don't think you will find a better one in this area.
We stay here as a base to walking in the Peak District and it is lovely coming back to such a beautiful B&B. We plan on staying longer next time and trying out Audrey's.
Thank you once again Lorraine for a lovely Easter.

Room Tip: All rooms are of a high quality. It is difficult to say which is the best. Rooms 1 & 2 for us...

Thank you so much for writing such a glowing review for Barms Farm. It is very pleasing to have guests return time after time to stay with us as Barms Farm. We tend to think of these lovely people (yourselves included) as friends rather than guests :)
Hope you enjoyed the eggs from our recently purchased young hens. We had our first BLUE/GREEN egg this morning. If as you say in your review that you are considering staying at Audreys our 5 star Gold self catering property on your next visit, I will ensuire that you have some of our fresh eggs included within your welcome pack.
Thanks again to you both and hopefully see you again soon
Lorraine

Excellent hospitality in perfect accommodation. We were made welcome from the moment we arrived and Lorraine was helpful with places to visit and places to eat at. Would have no hesitation in recommending Barms Farm to our friends.

We recently stayed at Barms Farm in March of this year for two nights. Lorraine was so welcoming and knowledgable of the area. The room was sympathetically decorated to the age of the building but also light and spacious too. I read the previous negative comments before staying here and to be honest i think these people just like to moan. From the cleanliness, to the breakfast it was perfect. They are notices up and around the hotel regarding drying outdoor wear and leaving walking boots in the porch, but I for one would expect no less from a 5 star hotel with cream carpet through out.
We would defiantly stay here again and can't thank Lorraine enough :)

Ideally located for exploring the Peak District. This accommodation lived up to its expectations and truly deserves a 5 star rating. Lorraine made us feel most welcome , the accommodation was spotless and the breakfast was excellent. Must recommend.

This is the best B&B I have stayed in! The room was immaculate..I couldn't find a spec of dust! The bed was so comfortable, the facilities great and breakfast was delicious! Lorraine is a great host and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to my family!

We have just returned from a two night stay at Barms Farm and just want to add some more superlatives.

The In laws have had a few health problems recently so this weekend break was a bit of a get away treat. Driving up from the West Midlands after work, sadly we hit some bad traffic and arrived much later than we had originally advised Lorraine. It was then that we found out that the Barms Farm B&B operation is pretty much run solo by her. We were shown to our accommodation by John who explained Lorraine had waited for us, but had to go and get some shopping in.

Handy hint No 1 - They would appreciate a phone call from you if you are likely to be significantly late !!

Handy hint No 2 (particularly in the dark !!) - Barms Farm is located off a right hand bend on the right hand side of the A6 on the climb out of Buxton towards Chapel en le Frith. Our Satnav told us it was on the left so don't be misled like we were. After driving up the A6 out of Buxton, pass through Fairfield, then when you exit the built up area drive carefully - the turning is 90 degrees uphill to your right, then a turn through the gate to your left.

Our stay was absolutely marvellous with a fantastic breakfast choice from Lorraine. We had a very tasty "full English" as well as Granola, toast, fresh fruit etc - all prepared fresh from the kitchen.

The three upstairs bedrooms contained great big comfy brass bedsteads and beautiful sized en-suite bathrooms. The accommodation has been described as spotless in earlier reports and that was exactly what we found, but neither was there a hint of a mark or a stain anywhere - absolutely pristine is how I describe Barms Farm. If you are the kind of person who enjoys a very good quality place for a weekend, or midweek break, and who respects the cleanliness of carpets, walls and furniture then Barms Farm is most definately for you. If however you want to take your mountain bike up to your bedroom, think again !!!!

Loads of stuff to do in the vicinity but a car is probably essential. It is a very stiff walk out of Buxton town up the hill and outside the Buxton town limits there was little street lighting. For trips out we visited the Winter Gardens Pavillion for a bazaar on the Saturday, then too a circular drive over to Bamford, then Ladybower reservoir then over the Snake Pass A57 to Glossop, then back via Chapel en le Frith. Sunday was a trip to Bakewell, then to Knights Table for Sunday dinner.

Highly recommended to adult couples and parents / in laws.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 3 may have the slight edge over room 1 for the stunning views, and the sunny afternoons...
