We had a two night stay here due to a family gathering in the locality. After a difficult journey we had a very warm welcome and were quickly shown to our room.. The room was comfortable and clean, overlooking Calke Abbey park. In the evening, we were told our food would take about 25 minutes but it arrived earlier.
The following day, we only wanted a light lunch and was told that one plate of sandwiches between us should be enough - which it was.
We found both the staff and the owner were very friendly and very helpful. We would certainly stay here again.
