“Perfect stopover on The Pennine Way”
Reviewed March 23, 2011

Ideal location after walking from Edale. Good welcome with tea, nice rooms and ride to the Peels Arms for dinner. Peels Arms recommended although I'm sure Joanna does a nice spread. Real ale at the pub too.

Reviewed April 30, 2010

Beautifully situated overlooking the Torside reservoir, the Old House B&B makes an ideal stopping place on the Pennine Way, especially after a hard day's walk over Kinder Scout!

The owner, Joanne, welcomes the weary traveller with a most-needed cup of tea. The room we stayed in was excellent, spacious and homely, with tea and coffee making facilities and an en-suite bathroom.

The building itself appears to be a renovated farm house with some of the original beams and stonework visible.

After we arrived, Joanne offered us either a home-cooked evening meal, or a lift to the nearby pub in Padfield, The Peels Arms. We opted for the pub!

After a comfortable night's sleep, helped by the lovely pub food and excellent beer, the breakfast the following morning was perfect - cooked to order, with thick-cut slices of bacon and succulent meaty sausages. Enough to make my mouth water just thinking about it! Joanne also made us a packed lunch for the day's walk.

Overall, whether you are walking the Pennine Way, or just exploring the area, the Old House is an excellent place to stay.
