This beautiful bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations of which are high. The hosts, Sue and John met us at the door on Sunday and waved us off this morning. You don't get this in many places! Breakfast has everything on offer and the full English is cooked to perfection.

We stayed her for 1 night. It is a lovely b&b and we were definitely made to feel welcome. We were welcomed with tea and cake. The room was very nice, one of the nicest b&b’s we have stayed in. The road is very steep so be aware if you are walking back up, it takes some effort.

Derbyshire is beautiful, and our room had picturesque vista. The bathrobes were a lovely touch. The owners are personable and helpful and were very good with our kids and making everything easier for us! Breakfast was also very good.

Hi Thank you for your query regarding the climb up to us. If you are travelling train then we can pick up from Cromford station which is a 5 minute drive but quite a walk up to us. Whilst we are on a steep hill there is a pub swithin 10 minutes walking distance from us called 'The White Lion and it is approx. 20 minutes walk down in to Matlock Bath. Hope this helps and we hope to hear from us soon.
