“Very pleasant B&B in great location”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I stayed at The Station House B&B whilst visiting family who live in Ashbourne. I booked one of the rooms, and my parents stayed in the other. We liked the fact that it is a small B&B. The location is great with views across the peaceful countryside. It is just a minute's walk from the Tissington Trail so is perfect for walkers and cyclists. Unfortunately we had awful weather which stopped us from doing much exploring on this occasion. The proprietors are very friendly and welcoming. The standard of cleanliness is excellent as are the facilities in the rooms. Both double rooms have modern and clean ensuite shower rooms and were very comfortable. Breakfast is very good. If I had one slightly negative comment it is that I would prefer a little background music in the breakfast room. I would have no hesitation in booking this lovely B&B again.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely but the one at the back of the house is slightly larger.

We had a one night stay here for a wedding at the local Alstonefield Manor - it was absolutely perfect for this. Very welcoming hosts, lovely room with comfortable bed, modern bathroom, tea/coffee/bottled water in the room, and amazing breakfast that sorted out a potentially terrible hangover. Highly recommended.

We only stayed for 1 night but it was very peaceful and had beautiful views. The owners are lovely and very friendly.

We went to a wedding and got back quite late but it wasn't a problem as the B&B has a separate entrance for guests.
I especially liked the soft bed linen, the bathroom is small and tastefully done.
Breakfast had lots of choices on offer, we left very full.
Would come and stay again.

We stayed 1 night as we were cycling along the Tissington Trail. This is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. Super comfortable bed with fresh white bedding, a beautiful view of the fields behind from our bedroom window and a stones throw from the Trail, it really did tick all the boxes. Now onto the breakfast, we ate at 8.30am and I didn't eat again for the rest of the day... fresh fruit, muesli, cereals, toast, home-made jam and a full English breakfast including oatcake (yummy) and a big pot of tea & coffee. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: There are 2 rooms, the one at the back of the house is lovely because you get a great view.

What a treat, staying in this cosy bnb. On the outskirts of Thorpe and right next to Tissington trail, Frances and Maurice looked after us and went out of their way to welcome us in to their home. Both the rooms are on the first floor and we were lucky to be the only ones in for the weekend and had the lovely room overlooking the green fields behind the property. The bed was super comfy and had good quality linen. Shower room is small but adequate and the shower is powerful with nice toiletries provided. Plenty of tea and coffee with fresh milk in flask were all part of those little special touches which made you feel welcomed.

And breakfast was sooo tasty and hearty with quality products and cooked well. Big pot of tea and thick homemade bread toasted to perfection was the icing on the cake :-)

We went for a circular walk on tissington trail going up north on the trail and then cutting across to Milldale with a pit stop for drinks at the pub in Milldale and then returned via Dovedale. A lovely walk but tiring as last bit to Thorpe is all uphill. We decided to eat in on the night and got some nice finger food and salad from Waitrose in Ashbourne. As the sun was out we decided to eat out on the decking with lovely sunset views. Again our hosts went out of their to set up the tables and chairs and giving us plates and cutlery and wine glasses to enjoy our meal. Cant thank our hosts enough for looking after us well and would thoroughly recommend this peaceful BnB and would love to return.

We stayed just one night on our way south and regretted not having more time to stay longer. The accommodation comprises two tastefully decorated and bright bedrooms, each with a modern en suite shower. (We had a peek at the other for a possible return trip). You access your room through an entrance separate from the owners' own home so there's no sense of intrusion and breakfast is taken in a separate room that seems to be set aside for that purpose. It was a very comfortable stay with all the standard hotel offerings such a flat screen TV, tea making facilities, hair drier etc. The toiletries (shower gel etc) were also of a proper size and not the fifddly little bottles you get in hotels.

Breakfast was excellent and negotiable to suit your needs. In confirming our arrival we mentioned that one of us is gluten intolerant. When we arrived it became clear that the owner had especially purchased gluten free bread and also soya milk. This was really considerate and the sign of someone who cares to try and provide what their clients need.

Although we had no time to explore the area, the location of this B&B, a few minutes off the A515, is ideal for walkers. This is the old railway station of Thorpe Cloud and is adjacent to the Tissington Trail that heads north into the Peak District.

If you want a decent meal try the Coach and Horses in nearby Fenny Bentley.

Our experience of this B&B was great. We simply wanted a quiet rural location which was close to Dovedale and Ashbourne. We couldnt have wished for better.
Our room was clean, airy and tastefully decorated. The room overlooked the rolling fields at the rear of the station house where horses and sheep were grazing.
A hearty and arm welcome was provided upon our arrival and a quick tour of the station house helped to make our welcome that little more special. There is a decking area to the rear of the station house which you are welcome to use throughout your stay. Ample parking is provided at the front of the property.
The location of this B&B is fantastic. If you like walking, cycling or just merely taking in the local areas you really cant go wrong. The station house was once a railway house to the Tissington Railway which comes to no surprise that this B&B is actually just a few feet away from the Tissington Trail. We found a round walk that started from the Tissington Trail and went through Dovedale which meant we never had to move our car. Highly recommended walk.

Overall this B&B is very clean, very welcoming, in an excellent location, has ample good off road parking, quiet, great local sourced breakfast and excellent value for money. We will definitely be back.

We would highly recommend this B&B as it truly offers a fantastic Derbyshire experience.

Room Tip: Ask for the room which overlooks the fields at the rear of the property. This offers stunning views...
