“Excellent stay”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Excellent facilities, set in wonderful countryside, with panoramic views. Warm and friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble, and very good breakfasts, all adding up to a wonderful end to our holiday. A very good base to explore both The Peak District and Yorkshire. Great value for money.

Location - wonderful views, beautiful garden

Rooms - Large room, relaxing neutral decor, beautiful wooden furniture, sitting room area, bathroom small but large shower. All extras provided including cotton wool, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel razor etc. Tea, coffee etc. No biscuits though - shame, but there were mints, bottles of water and a sherry decanter.

Breakfast - enormous selection of lovely food.

Beautiful place and whilst very welcoming for children, maybe not ideal for young children as lots of breakable things especially on breakfast table. However they did provide plastic cups and bowls. Travel cot and blankets provided but no high chair. Recommend visiting for a peaceful break away from children.

Stayed as a couple at the Ackroyd House and we were very impressed with the location and hospitality. The house is at the top of a very steep hill with fabulous views all around the house. The location is very handy to explore both Yorkshire and the Peak District. The house is ideal as it has two purpose built luxury rooms one above the other. The bed is so comfortable and has two leather chairs in the room to sit in and look out at the surrounding countryside. The breakfast is without doubt one of the best we have had. Cooked fresh so takes a bit longer but worth the wait. Jayne is very friendly and happy to chat when you come and go. A local pub the Rose and Crown within walking distance is great with superb food and real ale. Wednesday night quiz night and made to feel very welcome. This place is highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are two rooms both exactly the same but the Valley Room is upstairs and has a better view. I w...

We have stayed at Ackroyd House a few times now. We have a seven year old who is warmly welcomed. The views are amazing, the rooms are lovely and the breakfasts are excellent. Jayne and Andrew are both very friendly and welcoming. It is a really lovely place to stay and in terms of value for money, it's a bit like staying in a really nice hotel but for a third/half the price.

We stayed here for 3 nights and cannot speak highly enough of this place. Located in a stunning setting with 360 degree views, the accommodation is excellent with some of the best breakfasts we have experienced. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Ackroyd House recently and found it to be the best B & B that we have ever stayed in. We booked the 'Valley View' room - an absolutely beautiful view of the valley and beyond and then had an additional night in the 'Stable' room which also had a lovely view of the garden and surrounds. Both rooms were first class with all necessary facilities. The breakfast menu was amazing - such a variety was available. Fresh local produce, Andrew's home made bread and Jayne's cooking were unbeatable. We sincerely recommend Ackroyd House to anyone looking for friendly perfection. Ackroyd House is absolutely first class in accommodation, location and hospitality.

Room Tip: Both rooms excellent but 'Valley View' room has the best view.
