Stoop Farm Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #9 of 39 Buxton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights in the Hayloft room. The host Karen was very friendly and attentive.
The room was of a high quality. The directions to the farm given by Rumbers in his review are helpful (thanks Rumbers). I would add that Stoop farm is on the left as you approach and is signposted so you will know when you are on track.
The farm is a working one and that comes with it's own potential drawbacks. We did have one of the sheepdogs bark constantly for an hour at around 10pm on the first night. The setting is beautiful though and was very peaceful apart from that.
My cooked breakfast did unfortunately come with one of Karen's hairs. I though the sausage that came with the full breakfast was a bit average (and i would have liked 2 rather than the solitary 1) and i would have liked the option of beans or black pudding. The toasted bread was excellent.
The location is remote, you will need to drive to the nearest pubs. The Royal Oak comes recommended, it's about 10mins away and serves good pub grub.
Overall a very nice stay and comes recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights in the Seven room. Good size room (bed was very soft) with huge bathroom. Breakfast was great, the homemade granola and fruit compote were delicious. The hot options were very tasty too. The farm is very remote, so do expect to drive to dinner.

The weather was not great when we stayed, so we didn't get to try the hot tub. My only gripe? For £90 per night, I would expect to have big bath towels, not the small (albeit very thick and fluffy) ones provided.

We had a short but enjoyable stay at Stoop Farm on our way home from a trip South, just wish we had time to stop longer. The room we stopped in (Hollins Hill View) was enormous as was the ensuite, the breakfast was a lovely start to the day and if you have chance to stop longer than we did the area is great for walking and exploring. The whole place was spotlessly clean and Karen was a very welcoming and pleasent host.
We will definately be returnng for a longer stay.

It was our first visit to the Peak District, so we were absolutely delighted to discover Stoop Farm. We couldn't have made a better choice. Karen gave us such a lovely welcome, including tea and homemade cake. We stayed in the Hayloft for two nights, my sister and her husband in the Hollins Hill View Room – both were clean and comfortable, but more – we loved the space, the peacefulness, the views, the huge bed in the Hayloft and the classy decor. Breakfast couldn't have been better, with a wide choice, freshly cooked and the tastiest fresh fruit and homemade granola. We enjoyed chatting to Karen, her husband and their youngest daughter about their home, work on the farm and the newest canine arrival (a stray sheepdog that needed a good home).
We visited at the end of May, so we enjoyed watching the lambs playing and, in blazing sunshine did various walks: from the farm, along the Wye valley from the A6 to Monsal Head and from Hathersage up onto Stanage Edge and back – in all a wonderful way to get a feel for the Peak District. We can also heartily recommend the White Lion at Great Longstone for an evening meal.

Room Tip: Both rooms we occupied were perfect.

We had a super couple of nights at Stoop Farm. The location was wonderful - beautifully rural and peaceful. Great room and lovely breakfast. Really couldn't wish for a more perfect place to stay in the Peak District. I would recommend having a decent OS Explorer or Landranger map to find the farm and properly enjoy all the country lanes and walking. The nearby Monsal trail is definately worth doing if you like a leisurly bike ride - it goes through lots of old railway tunnels.

Room Tip: The Hayloft was lovely - but I'm sure all three rooms are a similar standard.

Stoop Farm makes a welcome change from your "usual" B&B. It gives you a real taste of country life. The room was perfect - spacious and clean with a modern bathroom and a huge comfy bed. We were welcomed with tea and cakes and breakfast was cooked to order. Wonderful views from the lounge/dining room. We visited in Spring so were surrounded by lambs - a picture postcard setting and one you'll find hard to beat!
