Spent one night on 24th Sep 2016 . It is a very clean and pleasant B and B . The landlady Val is a very friendly and welcoming person. The en-suite room had a bathroom nearly as big as the room with luxury fittings! Our room had an excellent view. Good breakfast. Will go there again gladly!

Tidy and clean. Service is good. The location is lovely and nearby to most shops and food places. Breakfast served promptly.

Extremely friendly and helpful, and let us in late at night. She helped us choose a...

I stayed here on the first night of a walking holiday. For the price I was expecting a "cheap and cheerful" B&B but it went above and beyond that, very welcoming, very comfortable and with all the little extras you wouldn't be sure of getting in a B&B.

Very clean and tastefully decorated B and B. Each room was spacious and with ensuite bathrooms. The views out of the bedroom and the lounge windows is fantastic! Breakfast was very wholesome and our eggs were done as we wanted. Val is very friendly and helpful. The approach is a narrow road but easily negotiable. We spent a night there...

Just out of Matlock, This B&B was the perfect spot to use as a base to explore the surrounding countryside, we received a lovely welcome on arrival, and the experience continued throughout or stay. Our room was of a nice size as was the en-suite. in the morning we were greeted with a hearty breakfast.

Hi me and my girlfriend spent one night here and were pleasantly surprised. It is a small cosy b&b with generous sized rooms which amazing views on to the Derbyshire Dales. The hosts were really friendly and went out of their way to help us and the breakfast was of a good standard. Couldn't fault it and would recommend.
