Would I stay there again? No - I found it a very frustrating place for a number of reasons and was really surprised about the rating it had achieved. They never seem to answer the phone, so had to book through booking.com which I am not a fan of, having had costly problems with it previously. These are my comments... More

A great place to relax and unwind. We had a lovely private room and en suite with stunning views at the top of the house which was always immaculate when we returned each day. The breakfasts were delicious even including home made bread. Hope to go back one day.

We arrived and met our host Mike late afternoon. He very kindly made us a cup of tea and he explained all about the guest house. The guest house was spotless and beautifully furnished. The guest house was in an idyllic location at the top of a small hill. Our room (The Haddon) was located at the top of the... More

Well so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and loved the area as well. I have retired from the Guest House due to health, but I know my lovely hubby and his helper Maria take such good care of people, so glad it was appreciated. Hope to see you again in the future, and again thank you! More

A weekend away to check out a bit of family history led us to book the Thorpe Cottage Country House as a base. It's a lovely place in the quiet village of Thorpe, about 10 minutes from Ashbourne. Comfortable and welcoming, the beds are soft and warm and the breakfasts are of epic proportion. We were well looked after by... More

My Mum and I are just back from a trip to Derbyshire & we stayed in this delightful B & B. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with beautiful views. Breakfast absolutely delicious and enjoyed sitting with the other guests around the table of a morning. Thank you Mike & Heather for your warm hospitality! Lovely, attentive hosts.... More

I stayed here at the end of July and found the owner to be overbearing, inflexible and intrusive. The rules and regulations are absurd; only fill your bath a few inches high, don't close the curtains, put your case on the designated stand etc. I was scared even to make a cup of tea or coffee in the room in...
