Nicky is the best host you could wish for. I dare anyone who stays here to try and find a speck of dirt.. its absolutely spotless and I don't know how she manages this, as it's on a farm. The room was huge and very comfortable with the added bonus of having your own lounge. The whole place is beautifully decorated, to the highest standard. I only stayed one night and can honestly say that I never wanted to leave. The arbor low stone are less than a 5 minute walk away and are not to be missed. They are Derbyshires Stonehenge. The views from this property are incredible. We sat outside until dark because we didn't want to miss a minute of them. The spread Nicky does for breakfast is incredible and again not to be missed. I only wish we could rate higher than a 5. I can't understand the poor reviews I have seen as clearly they didn't stay at this property as this place is amazing. We will be back. Thanks Nicky, from Caroline & Louis

Excellent room and facilities. Very clean, with use of a lounge as well as bed room. Kirsten was a great hostess and gave us an excellent breakfast. The Arbor Low Henge is on the farmhouse land, so just a 5 minute walk from the room! Highly recommended.

We booked this on the morning that we were actually arriving as a base for exploring Bakewell on the Sunday. A twin bedded room with private bathroom for £75. We arrived after a brief stop in Hartington which is a lovely quaint village worth visiting. The bed and breakfast is a lovely old farm house which is very remote and accessed by a private (bumpy) old lane. We found it straight away in the dark. As soon as we parked in the farm yard, the door was open and a big warm hello from Steve the owner. We kicked our shoes off, sanitised and through the second door you are standing in a lounge. This lounge is a lovely shared area with a burning log fire, sofas, etc with stairs leading up to the bedrooms. There was a couple sitting in there with a dog enjoying wine and reading. Due to the current situation, the dining room had been turned into our private lounge in the room next door. (I'll come back to that). We went upstairs and we had a lovely twin room, basic, clean and it had great views. The bathroom was a couple of doors away, not ensuite, but still a private bathroom for us to use. Large bathroom with clean towels, products and a good size. We came downstairs and the fire was roaring, Steve was making pizza and ensuring the other couple were happy. We were going into Bakewell (7 miles) for dinner. We were shown our lounge for the evening which included a large dining table, chairs, sofa, tv, open fire, kettle, toaster, books and maps, etc. It was fab! We went into Bakewell, parked for free and went into a couple of pubs which were busy and we didn't really know what to eat. We then decided as we had a lovely lounge back at the B&B we would buy some cheese, biscuits, wine, etc and just go back and make the most of it. On our return, we met Nicola who again made us feel very welcome, we spent a few minutes chatting to the other couple staying over and off we went into our lounge and nothing was too much trouble, within seconds we had plates, cutlery and glasses. We spent a lovely evening in there with tv, music and chatting with a great picnic. We had a great nights sleep in our twin beds (this may be the future, Haha) and the only that woke us was the birds tweeting. We had arranged to go down for breakfast at 8.45am, but we were a little early at 8am, again no problem, Nicola was there waiting and we had everything we needed, orange juice, milk, cereals, melon, strawberries, greek yoghurts, bread to make toast, tea, coffee, jams and honey. Then the cooked breakfast came and it was really good. We then sat and watch the news for a while whilst having another brew, chatting to the others around. We left around 10am and there we had the added bonus that the farm is next to Arbor Stone Circle, a short walk through the farmyard, through a gate, two minute walk up the field and you are right there in the stone circle which is complete, although all the stones are pushed over, which happened hundreds of years ago due to Pagan beliefs. Fascinating and great views over the Derbyshire Dales. To summarise (after reading other reviews and as a hotel manager for 12 years in a previous life), If you want to walk into a hotel and somebody at reception grunt and give you a key, then book somewhere else! If you want to walk into somebody's home and be met by a friendly chatty couple who will do anything to make your stay comfortable, put your slippers on, sit around chatting with other guests and make friends or sit quietly on your own whilst enjoying a glass of wine, then this is the place. The only thing I probably missed was tea in the room early morning. However, I know that if I'd have gone down and knocked, I would have got two mugs of tea! Friendly, great service. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I’m taking the owner to the Small Claims Court to get my £80 back as she’s refused to refund me. Last night, I had to turn around and head back home as I couldn’t stay there (sole traveller) with no lock on the bedroom (twin room upstairs) and a bathroom along the corridor next to other guests / her 14 year old son. I was not made aware of the lack of security / bathroom’s location at time of booking - if I was - I would not have booked this. It’s more like a Homestay / Hostel than an BnB. Other guests have noted the bathroom disaster but they had to stay as lived further away. I also found it intrusive that the owner harassed me several times for an exact arrival time which was all because she had to go out for part of the evening. I am sharing my story with the CEO of Booking.com plus several social media platforms and my travel blog. In 20 years of travel to over 40 countries I’ve never encountered such a well-versed, smiling-snake of a host!

Twin Room, 2 Twin Beds Private bathroom (not in room)Number of bathrooms : 1Wardrobe or closetNo cribs (infant beds)No rollaway/extra bedsNo special views This is the booking site room description , it clearly states a private bathroom. As a seasoned traveller I would expect you to know the difference between an ensuite and a private bathroom. You did not ask for a room key The landing is part of our large farmhouse, along which no family members travel towards the guest end of the house. You gave me a 2 hour check in window , during which i had to run an errand , therefore I confirmed the gap in time when i would be unable to meet you, simple manners.

myself and my girlfriend booked and payed £160 for two nights , first night ok , had a breakfast 1 egg, 1 tomato and two mushroooms and slice of bread !!! After that we decided to go out for the day,left about 11 o'clock and returned at 6 oclock to find that they had let our room to somebody else because we didn't say goodbye to them for the day when nobody was even there. plus NO refund just kicked out!!! 90 mile away from home. luckily found a place in Chesterfield for the night at extra cost. anyone who books make sure you say bye before you go out for the day im 100% discusted!!!.

This is totally false Breakfast was a full english of sausage, black pudding, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, toast, yoghurts, melon, strawberries, tea coffee fruitjuice You left and emptied the room, including all the bathroom products, did not apologise for the stain on the floor, and left plenty of cigarette butts on the porch floor. you did not say goodbye or indicate you were doing anything but leaving totally, while i was 100% here. You upset other guests with your arguing and driving at speed up and down the track. I repaid you in cash for the second night, another outright lie.
