It was good to find this open doing takeaway drinks and snacks after our walk to Shardlow from Long Eaton along the canal. Service is from a window along the canal side road. There's a range of drinks, cakes and hot savory snacks - just what you need.

We’ve just come back from an overnight stay at this lovely establishment. Very welcoming couple, fabulously decorated rooms (we had 2. One for us, one for the kids) and super, super clean. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was awesome. If ever we visit this part of England again, we will definitely book Holden House B&B. Thank you for looking after us!

Had an excellent short stay at Holden House - perfect base for exploring the Peak District. Anna & Andy are outstanding & friendly hosts. Holden House is delightfully situated on banks of the River Trent & next to а peaceful & interesting canal port, with plenty of pleasant dining & pub options. Would highly recommend a stay here & look forward to returning soon.

Very welcoming couple, with a spotlessly clean establishment. Very friendly with lots of local knowledge. Given a key so we could come and go as we please. Would definately come again and bring family /friends. Thank you for a lovely stay
