Reviewed May 27, 2012

Lovely couple run this B & B, the food is excellent, the rooms are excellent - they have thought of everything! Excellent breakfasts, good choices. Very clean and well situated with only about a 10 minute walk into Tideswell for everyday needs and evening; meals in the local pubs again very good. Certianly recommend this B&B!

The accommodation here is of the highest standard. A great deal of effort was made to make out party of four welcome. Breakfast was delicious -plenty of healthy eating . Mr. and Mrs. Read were warm and friendly hosts and we're looking forward to our next visit there.

We, two couples in our early fifties, stayed at Merman Barn for two nights and it was superb. We had the super king and the twin rooms. The photos do not do them justice! All the rooms are luxuriously and tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean and Linda has thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. There is a huge lounge solely for your own use, which was lovely to sit in and browse through the abundant linformation about the surrounding areas. There are facilities to sort out your muddy boots etc. after hiking, which we were very glad of. Linda's breakfast table is also absolutely fabulous by the way, the attention to detail and the deliciously cooked breakfasts, it's all just too good. Linda knows the true meaning of hospitality. This is five star quality we are talking about here! We would all certainly love to come back. Thanks for a great Peak District experience Linda and Andrew.

We booked a 2 night break (Friday / Saturday) in the Mermanbarn based upon previous reviews, and were not disappointed. We were welcomed upon arrival by Linda (the perfect host) who showed us around, then to our lovely superking room. Every area of the barn was spotlessly clean, and well worth it's four star rating. Everything seemed to be catered for, from a small fridge in the room, with fresh milk & bottled water, down to a little shed for the bikes. The bed was massive, and very comfy. The breakfast was delicious.
Tideswell was quite busy with shoppers / walkers during the day, and very quiet in the evening (just what we wanted really).
I would thouroughly recommend the Mermanbarn when staying in Tideswell, and like to thank Linda & Andrew for their hospitality. Definitely a 4* experience.

My recent visit to the Merman Barn was my fourth in the last two years and the Bed & Breakfast is simply as superb as it was on my first stay.
The hosts, Andrew and Linda are very open and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Visitors are often welcomed with a pot of tea which can be consumed in the comfortable lounge. Our room was the large double which has a super king size bed which has to be seen to be believed. The room was immaculately clean The bed had very attractive bed coverings and was a delight to rest/sleep on. The complimentary tray had a good selection of drinks on it with cups & scourcers (no mugs here) and a couple of packs of good quality cookies/biscuits. There was even a small vase of fresh flowers on the tray too. Next to the complimentary tray was a flat screen colour TV.
The en-suite shower room was also immaculate with complimentary soaps/shower gel/shampoo/shoe shine/shower cap etc. and clean fluffy towels and flannels. Our towels were changed after the second day of our four night stay without prompting which was a nice touch.
Our breakfast was taken in the very attractive breakfast room. Breakfast can consist of a substantial full English, or there is a comprehensive selection of cereals, or there are yogurts, or fresh fruit salads made by Linda.
Overall, the Merman Barn is a delight to stay in and I would recommend the B&B very highly. I would even recommend it to my mum!!!!
Excellent.

We have been to Merman Barn many times as this B & B is a little gem. Linda and Andrew are perfect hosts and the rooms are clean and comfortable, especially the superking room where we normally stay. A little fridge in the room and tea making facilities complete with gorgeous biscuits top off what is a relaxing and enjoyable stay. There is also a comfortable lounge where you can watch TV or a sunny garden to relax in. Breakfast is second to none as you will see. We advise you stay here if you are in the area as you wont go anywhere else in the Peak District once you have stayed here.

We stayed at Merman Barn for 2 nights towards the end of July. We had the twin room which was lovely and clean and had an en-suite. The guest living room was wonderfully comfortable and the garden was very pretty. Breakfast was plentiful and very nice.

Linda and Andrew were welcoming hosts, and advised us on places to eat locally. The Red Lion in the nearby village of Litton is a lovely old style pub full of character, but is so popular that you need to book to eat there in the evening, however there are a number of places within Tideswell which serve food where booking is not necessary. The George does something a little special, whereby the meat is served raw on a (very) hot volcanic rock and you can let each piece cook to your personal preference.

Likes:
The mini fridge with fresh milk was a nice touch
Courtesy bottled water and well as tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, chocolates
Shower - absolutely wonderful
Breakfast menu - just tick what you would like
Choice of herbal teas at breakfast

Dislikes:
Nothing
