“Best of the Best”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

If you want to experience 5 star luxery, then it is waiting for you at The Gables B & B. Sue & John have only been the propieters for two years, but in that short time they have created the perfect haven for a holiday in Derbyshire. Firstly they are wonderful hosts where nothing is too much trouble & the tea & cakes at 4pm each day taken on the outside veranda, overlooking the Darbyshire hills is something not to be missed & is a wonderful addition to their hospitality.
The rooms are very smart & spotlessly clean, fluffy duvet & pillows & comfy bed. Even careful thought has been given to the smallest of details, cotton wool, tissues & toiletries in the bathroom.The breakfast is of the very best with every combination available & lots of it.
.This has to be the very best Derbyshire has to offer & we will return in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: We had the Derwent room with the two twins joined together which made a faboulous King size bed.

A wonderfully presented, clean and friendly B&B which I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thoroughly enjoyable breakfast and afternoon tea and homemade cake too! A most comfortable room (Derwent Suite) and comfortable bed. A truly delightful family run business.

Only stayed for one night, but would love to stay again sometime. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, the guest house was very clean and lovely rooms. Great breakfast very fresh. The views were fantastic, bit of a walk up the hill but worth the effort.

Me and my wife stayed here for one night a couple of weeks ago and had a very enjoyable stay. We received a very warm welcome from the owner, who showed us to our room and offered a fresh pot of tea/home made cake in the lounge. The bedroom was lovely, like a home from home. The breakfast in the morning was excellent as well. Parking is a bit challenging as it's located on a steep hill and is a bit small, but is manageable. Would highly recommend staying here.
Also, really good local pub just 5-10 minute walk (The White Horse) where we went for dinner and a few drinks.
