“Wonderful location...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Friendly family business over looking Starkholmes village and out to the Derbyshire dales, Matlock Bath and beyond.
Very clean, well maintained establishment, well serviced rooms with tea/coffee facilities, very comfortable bed(a good nights sleep) and an excellent shower.
White Lion public house less than ten minutes walk providing good 'Pub' Food.
Very good breakfast, cooked to order.
An excellent all round stay.

A wonderfully presented, clean and friendly B&B which I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thoroughly enjoyable breakfast and afternoon tea and homemade cake too! A most comfortable room (Derwent Suite) and comfortable bed. A truly delightful family run business.

Only stayed for one night, but would love to stay again sometime. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, the guest house was very clean and lovely rooms. Great breakfast very fresh. The views were fantastic, bit of a walk up the hill but worth the effort.

Me and my wife stayed here for one night a couple of weeks ago and had a very enjoyable stay. We received a very warm welcome from the owner, who showed us to our room and offered a fresh pot of tea/home made cake in the lounge. The bedroom was lovely, like a home from home. The breakfast in the morning was excellent as well. Parking is a bit challenging as it's located on a steep hill and is a bit small, but is manageable. Would highly recommend staying here.
Also, really good local pub just 5-10 minute walk (The White Horse) where we went for dinner and a few drinks.

Stayed at The Gables for one night to break a journey from Scotland to London. We arrived early evening and received a warm welcome from the owner. The suite was beautiful and impeccably clean, with a huge bathroom, fluffy bathrobes and slippers, homemade shortbread on the tea tray and the most amazing view of Marlock Bath and the cable cars! We took a short walk down the hill to the White Lion where we had a very reasonably priced, delicious meal. The pub has a lovely atmosphere. We left early the next morning after a lovely breakfast. The only downside to the stay was that we only stayed on night! We will definitely return at a later date.
