My boyfriend and I stayed at Rockfield House for just one night and were made to feel very comfortable and at home thanks to Martin who came out to greet us on arrival. He showed us into our room (the double ‘downstairs’ room) which was much bigger than we’d expected and very nicely decorated. He then showed us upstairs to the communal area where we were to have dinner later on, and the view from this rooms bay window was just beautiful.
We then went to get our bags in from the car during which time, Martin brought down some vegan cakes for us which was nice. It’s the little touches, isn’t it?
Later, when we went upstairs for dinner, a table had been set for two with a couple candles for ambience - it was lovely. We were presented with our chosen starter which was the soup. Personally, I am not a huge fan of soup but I can say that this was particularly nice! And the bread - a bit like naan I suppose - was very soft and fresh! We didn’t know what to expect from our main course as neither of us had tried it before but it was truly one of the best vegan meals I have had. Delicious! And dessert was just the right size - perfect! Three course meal - well worth the money. I’d have it all over again in a heartbeat!
The bed itself was incredibly comfy and the bathroom was spotless. It was obvious that they pride themselves on presentation (the house and the food) amongst other things.
Breakfast was exactly as I like it - a feast! All the usual options - coffee, juice, cereals, fruit, toast etc with the choice of a few hot meals if you like. I must say that the blackberry jam was absolutely delicious! As it turns out, Kate had made it herself from berries down the road. We definitely left feeling inspired, we will be ATTEMPTING to cook to their standard every now and then haha. Will take some practice though I‘m sure!

In a nutshell - Rockfield House completely exceeded our expectations in every way. We definitely intend to return, maybe in the summer.

Room Tip: Make sure you know where the closest pubs are before you try to find one by foot in the dark haha.

We stayed for 2 nights and only wished we could have stayed for longer. Kate and Martin made every effort to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We felt relaxed within minutes of arriving The setting is very peaceful and the views are lovely. The main highlight of our stay was the food. The meals were outstanding and we were so glad that we sampled the evening meal option as it was of the highest quality. It was great to have a vegan meal that was so different to the predictable and unimaginative options that you find in most restaurants. We would love to visit again.

Kate and Martin are great hosts and are both very friendly and helpful. The accommodation is tasteful and comfortable and the home made food is simply delicious, a real treat for vegetarians and vegans. This and the beauty of the Peak district makes for a perfect place to stay.

Lovely, spacious, spotlessly clean, well appointed accommodation with maybe the best food we have ever tasted, including top restaurants: We were only booked in for evening meal on the first night, of our three night stay, but very quickly made our bookings for the remaining evenings after such an excellent meal (the breakfasts aren't bad either). Perfect hosts (friendly and knowledgeable) complement this excellent accommodation in a beautiful location with outstanding dining at a very reasonable price.

Apparently we're the first couple to come back again and it was just as good. The weather was a bit cool but Kate and Martin put the heating on and we had a separate heater in the room so it was fine. The food was excellent although I'd have liked a little more choice as we stayed for three nights and had tart as a main for the last two. Apart from that, excellent

Diana, thank you so much for your second very positive review. I am so sorry that on this occasion our menu choice was not quite as you wanted it to be. As you know our policy is to propose a menu and then negotiate any preferences, likes or dislikes. We will happily rethink the options if our original plan is to not to your liking - just say the word, we pride ourselves on flexibility and customer service.
