We were 2 couples from Coventry on a 2 night break to walk in the Peak District, and what an excellent choice this place turned out to be. Just could not fault it. On our arrival to check in, the huge coal fire in the lounge was very welcome. Our lovely warm rooms were called 'The Bottle Store' and 'Chapel Room' in the Barn converion and cosily furnished to a high standard with very comfortable beds. We had a little vestibule hall between our two rooms so we could pop in to each other's rooms without fear of disturbing anyone else. And what a lovely warming touch the small decanter of sherry was on the dressing table in our room on arrival. The sheep in the field outside our window could almost poke their heads into our room. We had an excellent view up the hill to the Cat and Fiddle in the distance. The hotel is only a short drive away to start some excellent walks. Three of us booked the 'Bottom of the Oven' lamb for our second night so we had something to look forward to on return from our 12km hike. Think we can all honestly say that it was the best lamb we have tasted, and huge portions. So perfectly done, it's making my mouth water now just writing about it. Served with an assortment of perfectly cooked vegetables. The first night us two girls had the delicious trout (we requested the head be removed first), and the 2 men had the home cooked steak and ale pie which was voted 'gorgeous' with delicious gravy. The huge English breakfast had everything, bacon, sausage, eggs, mushrooms, black pudding and tomato, with cereals, fruit juice and toast as well, perfect starts to our 2 day walking break. Nice to sit by the fire at night and relax in the bar drinking good ale after our meal, and chat before turning in for a good nights sleep. A piece of advice though, don't dare poke the fire!!!
