We spent 3 nights here and used this as a base to tour around the Peaks. A real bonus is the very pleasant short walk across the park and by the river to the town of Bakewell. Ideal for evening drinks and dinner with no driving! Well, what can I say about this lovely place? Run by Tim and Judith (a very nice couple) who are always ready to help and advise on where to go and what to see. When we arrived, Tim made us a pot of tea and produced some cake as well, which we had in the garden outside the room. Really welcome after a long drive!
Not only do you get a comfortable bed and a nice en suite, you also have your own dining/sitting room as well. Several people commented in the visitors book that it was "a home from home" and I guess that sums it up. And great value too by the way. The garden looked beautiful too, always pleasant to look out on while sitting out in the evenings. Breakfast was fabulous, with most things imaginable on the menu. Any combination, whatever you desire on the day.
We will definitely stay here again, looking forward to it already!
