Stayed here for two nights 18/20 November on a KGB deal, which was excellent value for money. Easy to locate and plenty parking on site for the five rooms.
Traditional `pub with rooms` in small village. Room was on the small side (`Mam Tor`) but had everything one would need...bath and shower, tv, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer etc etc. clean and comfortable. Hosts are really, really, nice people and have a great manner, making one immediately feel at home.
Ate in both nights and enjoyed wholesome cooking and generous proportions, served in bar or adjoining dining area. Wood fire creates a nice atmosphere and newspapers are available at weekends.
Breakfast ordered the night before, cooked fresh to order and perfectly adequate. Juice and cerials available and endless tea/coffee/toast as required.
Ordered packed lunches as we were out walking all day and they were excellent and very very reasonably priced.A real bonus.
Fantastic door to door walking on a circular 6 hour route up Kinder, which was excellent (we did have a sunny day with a chill wind, which helped!). Views were excellent and we barely had to walk on a road.
On homeward journey we visited Chatsworth House, about half an hour away, and enjoyed the Xmas market which is on for a couple of weeks in mid-November each year. House a little disappointing for the money, but location and grounds magnificent.
A great place for a short break...try it!!
