A break for me and my boyfriend. Greeted by the lovely Julie who gave us a tour of the B&B and of our room. Made us coffee and fresh banana bread. Best breakfast (and great options). The bedroom had everything you need (ensuite shower and bath, drawers, fridge, TV & DVD player for relaxing and tea & coffee) Visited Bakewell... More

We used this B&B as a base while splitting our time between attending Y Not Festival and exploring some of what the Peak District has to offer. 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.

We really enjoyed our weekend here. From the minute we were ushered into the living room, complete with roaring fire, books, games and of course pigs and offered tea and biscuits, we were made to feel at home. The room was large and had everything we needed. We arrived at the same time as the butcher delivering sausages so we... More

This was our second visit to the Pig O Lead and we were not disappointed. We had the same room, which had been improved with an updated en suite shower room and I'm told will be further improved with some more lighting in the en suite. The room was warm and comfortable with a very comfy bed. The breakfasts were... More
