Enjoying a secluded location overlooking Eaton Dale only 1.5 Kilometres from Wolfscote Dale, Peak District Spa lies within the heart of the most spectacular limestone scenery of the Peak District National Park, in between the picturesque villages of Tissington, Hartington and Parwich. With the Tissington Trail cycle way just a few hundred metres away and footpaths leading directly from our rooms into Eaton, Alsop, Wolfscote and Biggin Dales, this is the ideal location for walking, cycling, climbing and other outdoor pursuits. We also offer fly fishing on our lake with the possibility of tuition and excellent fishing opportunities on some of England's most famous limestone rivers such as the Dove & the Wye. However, if the weather is poor, there is loads to do with Chatsworth, Alton Towers, the National Tram Museum, Gullivers Kingdom, Buxton Opera House, Derwent Valley World Heritage Site, Ashbourne, Matlock and Bakewell all within easy reach. With its own landscaped gardens, hot tub and cobbled parking area, Peak District Spa's bed and breakfast rooms offer luxurious accommodation in which to relax and unwind in a tranquil location overlooking Eaton Dale. Our guests also benefit from a WiFi cafe, bar and licensed restaurant on site just a 100 metres or so away from the accommodation serving simply-cooked excellent local produce (please see our web site for details of opening times). Rivendale caravan park is about kilometre away, offering caravan and tent pitches, holiday caravans, Yurts and luxurious lodges for hire the ideal solution for groups of friends or relatives with different accommodation preferences. Accommodation Converted from a picturesque stone barn overlooking Eaton Dale, the four bedroom suites all include showers, or baths with showers ensuite. Despite the traditional external appearance of the building, the suites have an uncluttered contemporary interior and are technically superior to many hotel suites charging twice as much. The two ground floor rooms are graded M2 wheelchair accessible suitable for occasional & accompanied wheelchair users.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked for two nights for my partners birthday for a fishing weekend, on arrival allowed to check in early, ate in the cafe and the food lovely, the room (2) very nice indeed, quality accommodation and all to a hi standard, very comfy bed, lovely decor and peaceful, green, scenery all around. The bar also lovely quaint decor, excellent food, good prices, great atmosphere, we used local fisheries for course fishing and found the area beautiful and tranquil. Staff all Friday and helpful, would recommend this for a place to stay if wanting to explore the urrounding area. Quality throughout. Only thing I would add, is that wifi should be free, signal only available in parts due to location, but paying for wifi anywhere these days is a no no.

The room was lovely, comfortable bed, nice views out of (very small) window, slippers and dressing gown were a nice touch. Left a couple of bags in the wardrobe ( admittedly my fault!) And was very disappointed with the lack of help in retrieving them. I was more than happy to pay for sending them back and even tried to arrange a courier to collect them for me. They couldn't do it until they were boxed up, which the staff refused to do for me. Ended up in a 6 hr round trip to pick them up, which turned a fairly pleasant stay into quite a disappointment. Also the "spa" part of the name is very misleading, as it is a normal B&B with the option to hire a hot tub, which you have to hire for a full day, at quite a cost!

We booked to stay here after looking on booking.com, the place looked good however on arrival it led us on to a camp site (which wasn't obvious from the website) and to a very poorly lit car park. I had travelled for 4 hours to get there with my pregnant partner who was desperate for the toilet on arrival. We went to the reception which was locked as were all the other doors and the place was in complete darkness. Check in was between 14:00 and 20:00, we arrived at 17:00. We rang the reception and got no answer and then rang the number on the door that was left on a note. This was also not answered! after an hour and a very distressed partner we managed to luckily find a room in a hotel down the road (the Charles Cotton which was very good). Since this incident we have had absolutely no apology from them or explanation as to why they left us with out anywhere to stay. Shocking customer service.

Response from Gregpotter, Manager at Peak District Spa
Responded 9 Nov 2016
It would indeed be shockingly bad, were it to be accurate - but it isn't. Our managers & assistant managers were in reception until 5.20 p.m. on the Sunday evening in question, after which time they posted a notice on reception door referring arrivals to a mobile phone number and the staff members on duty - who were in a mobile home overlooking the main car park about 30 metres from the reception door. It's hard for them to miss car arrivals as the car headlamps shine straight through their large lounge window as vehicles pull into the car park; no cars did so that night. However, we do share a site entrance off the main road at Rivendale Holiday Park, so if you had continued up the road to the holiday park, turned around & then driven out without spotting the sign indicating our drive down to the rooms, we may well not have spotted you - for which you have our sincere regrets and apologies. The suite was made up ready for you, having turned other bookings down in good faith - there were no missed calls recorded on the mobile contact number left in reception.

Call themselves a spa but are not. No pool, treatments etc - just hot tubs which they need a days' notice for ,and cost £80 to hire! Claim they will be a spa "soon" but they've had this misleading name for three years now with no progress, I don't think they will ever become a spa. Apart from that, fine. Annoying to hear "waste" from the room above draining down the pipe as it came through our room (room 4). Breakfast was good, good location for walks. Wifi is not included and is expensive (£10/day).

Great location, modern clean rooms, good breakfast but a bit lacking on the Spa element. Very nice camp site wih yurts. Good local walks from the site. There was a hot tub you could hire! Was that the spa?

Good property with wonderful views happily away from our mobile phone providers! Breakfast was plentiful and the staff were lovely. Downside to room 4 was the bed was so creaky and uncomfortable, I would stay away from this particular room if possible due to the sleep quality from the bed and noise from other guests up above.

Nice location just hidden off the main road that backs onto the most amazing views of rolling hills... Friendly staff on arrival and the room was amazing with a balcony overlooking the back. Room wasn't massive but ok for a nights stay, the bed was a large double and very comfortable. Unfortunately the pub/restaurant wasn't open on Monday when we arrived, had a short drive to a recommended pub which was nice. Breakfast was served in the adjoining building, a bit if a wait but I must say the best breakfast I have had in a long time...compliments to the chef! Will most definitely be coming back to stay, probably longer next time.

After a great nights sleep and with a big rid ahead of us we were hoping for a big breakfast. We were not disappointed. With cereals, fruit and even a hot croissant before the cooked breakfast. The only draw back was we had no wifi or mobile signal in the room which, for those of us who are desperate to keep in contact with the family was a little disconcerting. Parking. Excellent Staff. Excellent Bed . Excellent Breakfast. Excellent.

Thank you for your kind review, there is WiFi but it is not great as our BT broadband service is 3rd world to non-existent. We are currently working with W3z to improve things to far better standard.

Norwich, United Kingdom4 contributions5 helpful votes
We were looking forward to a romantic getaway in the Peaks as we often do and came across this charming B&B. However - the main door to the B&B rooms and the door to each room has no 'soft closing mechanism' on them which means that when the rooms are full (they were when we visited) people that are heavy handed or inconsiderate of others constantly slam doors. The bathroom is a wet room which is not ideal as even though we angled the shower head towards the wall - it still pretty much flooded the bathroom and was creeping out into the main bedroom. This was only stopped as we laid a towel outside the door. The waiter at breakfast was very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble - the breakfast was pleasant. When we visit the Peaks we go for relaxation and peace - this B&B did not offer this. We were also disappointed that after being excited to use hot tubs and the pool we were advise you had to pay an additional £80.00 to use the hot tub - this is extortionate! Bear in mind you also have to pay for Wi-Fi here (£6.00 for 2 hours). Upon checking out we raised our concerns with the receptionist. She was very dismissive so we are sure nothing will change. We would not recommend this B&B to our friends which is a shame as the rooms have potential.

Responded 17 Oct 2015
Thank you for your review; I am glad you liked the rooms, and sorry that you were disturbed by the doors closing. There is a 2 stage pull to the door closer & these have now been adjusted. With regard to the hot tub, it consumes about £40 worth of wood & water per use. £15 of the £80 is our contribution to the treasury in the form of Vat - leaving us £25 to pay for the operating costs and staff training associated with the £55,000 machine that moves it - hardly extortion, although I do appreciate £80 is a significant sum - bearing in mind our double rooms including 2 people and full English breakfast were charged from £66 per night. If you find anybody who can include a hot tub for free at that price, and still be trading after 12 months, send them this way & they can be manager.

We loved this hotel. Modern and luxurious, yet very warm and cosy. Would definitely stay here again. One thing worth noting, it's best to arrive before it gets dark as it can be very misty on the Buxton Road which therefore makes it hard to spot the entrance. Can't really think of any complaints. Hotel staff were lovely too!
