“Excellent B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Spent one night here and enjoyed the stay. Comfortable beds in well-equipped rooms. A warm reception & a welcoming cup of tea. Cooked breakfast was excellent. Very helpful proprietors. Car parking is a little restricted but there is some on-street parking.

Room Tip: Twin or double available - no traffic noise. Do eat at the Miners Arms, Eyam

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend of hiking.
Upon arrival we had a warm welcome from the Smiths and we were shown a cosy clean and lovely room.
Full English breakfast is cooked on the spot on request, while the buffet is quite varied and full of good things, among which also some homemade jams and marmalade.
We had a lovely relaxing time at this B&B and certainly we will be back at the next occasion.

We stayed just one night as my son wanted to show his American partner nearby Chatsworth House. We were given a warm welcome by Ian and Janet despite interrupting their evening meal! The rooms were well appointed with Roberts radios, free wifi and coffee and tea making gear. Attractive limited edition prints decorated the house throughout. The light and airy breakfast room/lounge was very comfortable. The hosts were very knowledgable about the area and the house is situated within easy reach of the main attractions of the Peak District. We ate at The Miners Arms in the village and had some excellent pub fare there,

Stayed one night on a Sunday and had the most lovely welcome even though we interupted Janet and Ian's daughter's homecoming! A most welcome cup of tea even though we were really early, and one of the most comfortable bed's I've ever slept in! Note the village pub doesn't do food on a Sunday night but the local Indian restaurant is and we were bowled over by Ian's offer to drive us to the pub in Foolow two miles up the road! Woul ddefinately stay here again and it's a great base for walking.

Phew, this place is not the easiest to find on Trip Advisor for some reason, but I'm glad I made it here because I really wanted to say what a great place this is. Despite us turning up late, unannounced, and just before Janet set off for her book discussion group, she and Ian really made us feel welcome and wish we could stay for longer to pick their brains more about places to discover in the area.
To my mind they are the ideal B&B hosts - passionate about getting out and exploring their own area, and I could see that they had so much they could tell us; had we had the time! They are just the kind of people who can give you good advice on where to go and what to see, and how to get there, as well as countless other useful details from history, geology to what to wear!
In addition our room was well stocked with walking magazines that gave us countless other ideas and longings! Oh yes, and it was comfortable, quiet, and even had a lovely bath to soak weary muscles in. Next morning - an excellent breakfast - one of the best. I've been trying out recipes for oatcakes ever since I came home!
Eyam itself is a fascinating and pretty town to stop in, and we did a lovely evening walk from the Crown, up the hill, along the road a little and then down through the forest and cemetery, where there is a beautiful Celtic cross. We found the route in one of the magazines in our room. Perhaps a sketch plan version of it in all the rooms would be appreciated by guests.

The owners were both friendly and helpful. The room was really comfortable - especially the bed. Breakfast was one of the best we've ever had (we both loved the home made oat cakes). The cottage is in a fantastic location.

Room Tip: The bathroom in room 4 has a massive window shelf which is perfect (if like me) you have lots of toi...

Stopped at Crown Cottage for two nights to attend a navigation training course in nearby Stoney Middleton. As with others Janet and Ian gave me a warm welcome and showed a genuine interest in what I was doing and in making sure I was well looked after. Very pleasant room with all facilities including tea and choc biscuits. Excellent cooked breakfast and Janet prepared a substantial packed lunch each day for a small extra charge. Parking places at the rear of cottage and plenty of reasonable pubs and an indian restaurant within walking distance. Would not hesitate to stay again
