Pig of Lead was an excellent find, well situated for access to Matlock and Cromford and a lovely (but hilly!) walk to Bonsall village. Julie is an excellent host, showed us round and made us feel really welcome with a hot drink and biscuits in the lounge. The breakfasts are wonderful and nothing felt too much trouble - really liked being able to have access to a fridge and microwave in the breakfast room where we could store our provisions for walking and our wine!
We stayed in the super king size room at the top of the house, it was finished to a very good standard with everything you could want for - big tv, DVD player, hair dryer, hot drinks and biscuits and plenty of room. Only drawback is can see how it could be quite noisy if the windows are open into the main road as traffic can be a bit heavy.
We can't wait to come back and have another breakfast!
Hint: go to the Barley Mow pub in the village on a Friday night for their food and excellent acoustic night and the King's Head pub on a Sunday for their quiz night.
