We had an amazing breakfast every single morning that I still dream of now (full English, kippers or smoked salmon with scrambled egg; with amazing coffee or tea, plus the regular cereal, milk, orange juice and fruit), and our room had all...

Don't you just hate 20" TVs? WiFi was also available in the room and plenty of parking space. Good choice of food... More

The bedroom had everything you need (ensuite shower and bath, drawers, fridge, TV & DVD player for relaxing and tea & coffee) Visited Bakewell... More

Julie the hostess is very warm, welcoming and informative and we briefly met her husband who is also very friendly. The house itself is quaint and comfortable with a mixture of quirky nick... More

The Pig of Lead is a historic house in an area of great interest and beauty. There is off-road parking, good wifi and a very comfortable bed. The house is by a fairly busy road, and you will likely need to drive to most places. The house has a large library, with plenty of board games and DVDs also. Our... More

From our arrival where we were shown into the lounge with a roaring wood burning stove to our departure, we had a perfect experience. Excellent location for tourist attractions and walks with a short walk to pubs and restaurants.
