Stayed overnight. Very comfortable bed with en suite shower room, nice and warm. Breakfast was super, but dont be in a rush because it is all cooked fresh. Loved the chickens by the front door giving eggs.

My friend and I stayed in the twin room. Perfection in every way, starting with the warm and intentive welcome from Musti and Alison. After a gorgeous Derbyshire Peak walk, the private bathroom gave us a hot therapeutic shower and the beds were so comfy. Waking up to the smell of fresh bread, homemade produce and a full English.
