My family stayed at Hillcrest house last weekend 22 & 23 Jan 2016. We needed a weekend break, fresh air and relaxation to blow away the cobwebs. We were not disappointed on the contrary. On our arrival we were greeted warmly by Alison and Musti. Our two girls (9 & 4 yr olds) were equally made to feel equally important.... More

Hillcrest 's new owners couldn't have done more to make us welcome. Lovely en suite room and superb breakfast. Thorpe is a wonderful spot for walking and gives easy access to the Tissington trail which is also v good for cycling. Thank you Alison and Musti - we're looking forward to visiting again soon!

Having stayed at Hillcrest House several times, we were pleased to be back. The welcome and facillities provided by Margaret and Dan were first class as always. The location could not be better if you want to enjoy the sunny delights of Dovedale and the Manifold valleys. A most enjoyable break in The Peak District Park

We spotted this B&B during our previous visit to Dovedale and decided to book their self-catering cottage due to its close proximity to Thorpe Cloud and great walking surrounds. The cottage was very cosy and spacious, the bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. The owners Dan and Margaret are genuinely great hosts and really look after you. We... More

Dan and Margaret were wonderful hosts. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable King size and the bathroom excellent in design and their corner shower was great. The breakfast was excellently cooked, using local produce, including Derbyshire Oat cakes. Sited on the crest of the hill next to Thorpe Cloud, proved to be very peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Dan and Margaret welcomed us with a cup of tea in the garden. The rooms were spacious, with fluffy dressing gowns ready for use. The breakfast was delicious, plentiful, with fresh bread made by Dan, we were minutes away from Dovedale, perfect for walking and sight seeing

We stayed for 7 days in the self contained two bedroom holiday cottage attached to Hillcrest House. The cottage has everything you need for an extended stay and was truly a home from home. We also enjoyed the facilities in the main B&B (Including the excellent honesty bar) The proprietors, Dan & Margaret, are excellent hosts and provide just the... More

Literally, the only problem I had other than the bed itself was the reception seems to close before 10pm (a fairly slight problem, and only because I was badly delayed in arriving and had no phone signal to call the number tacked on the door; luckily, this time I was part of a pair sharing a twin room, and I...
