Our room was lovely - spacious, well equipped and with a huge comfortable bed! Breakfast was delicious and set us up well for the day. The location is handy for walking in the area, and is just a short (steep!) walk into Bonsall where there are a couple of pubs where we had some good meals, and a deli where...

When I booked this I thought the Pig of Lead was a pub, not that I wanted it to be and I was pleased to find it wasn't. A warm welcome from Julie made sure this was a really enjoyable stay. The rooms and facilities are excellent with everything you need and it's a great place to stay to see...

Stayed for two nights B&B and could not fault the service I received. Julie welcomed me on arrival with tea and copious quantities of biscuits. The room was clean and warm with everything that I needed. The bed was comfortable. I was delighted to find that the shower enclosure was significantly larger than average and allowed for comfortable movement therein....

Stayed for a long weekend and was treated to a great time. The room was clean, it had an en-suite bathroom and the breakfast was to die for, set you up for the day. This B&B is ideal for visiting the White Peak area. We walked quite a lot of the area - Chatsworth Park, Eastern Moor, Carsington Water and...

Just loved our stay at Pig of Lead. Host went above and beyond!!!! Lovely clean open rooms, fantastic bed (slept like a rock) and modern bathrooms! Thank you so much - wish we could have stayed longer. Felt like a home away from home but had plenty of privacy and sound proof rooms (just what you want on your honeymoon).

I stayed here for the weekend and arrived early evening. Our room was on the top floor and was very nice, had plenty of room and was very well equipped. The breakfast was very nice and nothing was too much trouble for the owner. Would definitely recommend and will definitely use this place again.

Ideally located for exploring the wonderful Derbyshire Dales, The Peak, District and The Start of the industrial Revolution. The Pig of Lead is a converted former pub with an interesting history of its own. Now thoughtfully restored to provide very comfortable en suite rooms. The bed was extremely soft and lovely linen and towels. Very friendly welcome and service. The...

The Pig of Lead has an interesting history and features lots of pigs. We were made very welcome and had a nice room with all the necessary facilities. Breakfast is excellent. Can be noisy in the morning with quarry lorries. It is well placed to visit all the attractions of this beautiful area.
