Ideally located for Alton towers, Peak District, Derby and leek only a short drive away in either direction, lovely owner who was very attentive to his customers, nice to see the log fire burning during service and the bonus ball is that this place is dog friendly.

From afternoon tea in front of the blazing log fire on our arrival to a wonderful buffet breakfast on the morning of the 27th, our three night stay was an amazing experience. We loved the idea that dogs were welcome even though we don't have one of our own! The vegetarian options were delicious and the breakfast/lunchtime/evening buffets a sight...

Really enjoyed our stay here on a Friday night with two other friends. Staff friendly but not so that you have to shoo them away. Food some of the best tasting ever I can recommend the chicken livers and the steak and Stilton pie. No fancy prices the only reason I do not give this full marks is we found...

Great two night break over New Year with superb 6 course meal on New Year's Eve with all the trimmings, lots of atmosphere, followed by a Bucks Fizz brunch on New Year's day and another excellent 3 course meal in the evening followed by a quiz. Accommodation in en-suite cabins (all dog friendly) was very good also. Lovely countryside, friendly...

Lovely break, friendly staff, good clean accommodation and smashing food too. The hot tub and bubbly made our stay even more special, and star watching through the open roof was lovely. All our needs were more than met and I will be returning. Nice local ales and a good selection of wines that were reasonably priced in the restaurant. A...

We arrived after a long day at work to this lovely Inn and was greeted by a very welcoming lady at Reception. We were then kindly escorted to our room, which was a self contained cabin (completely surprised as we were just expecting a normal room but this was amazing!) Our room was spacious, clean, had a double bed, bunk...

Rooms are not in the Inn. The accommodation reminded me of a holiday camp or US motel. That said, our room for two nights was warm, clean and comfortable. Our neighbours disturbed us the first night with bangs and bumps and barking dog. Really peaceful when they left. Better lighting needed between the inn and the chalets when walking over...
