5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

We had a beautiful tea in this charming and winsome hotel in the heart of the Peak District. The smell of fresh paint wafted through the air as we looked around this newly rennovated property. We enjoyed talking with the friendly people at the bar and registration. This is a real gem and we will stay there whenever the occasion arises. The views are truly spectacular and the walks around the nearby village of Dovedale are dramatic. The National Trust "Illam Park" (a fine manor house deeded to the NT in 1931) is nearby and well worth a visit.
