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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at Rushop hall in the twin room in the main house. The room itself was spacious and absolutely beautifully decorated to a very high standard. The beds were extremely comfortable and the mattresses & duvets very good quality. One bed did squeak a bit but they’re old fashioned style (iron) so partly expected.
The breakfast was one of the best we’ve had in any hotel and again quality was outstanding. The fruit/yoghurt/compote combination was superb.

There were a couple of things that could be improved: Clearer signage on arrival of where to pick up keys as it’s not obvious.
Information in the room about wifi code and local walks from the B&B would be useful.
We didn’t have a phone signal (EE) in some parts of the accommodation. This didn’t bother us as the Wifi was excellent, but may be troublesome for some guests.
The owners were unable to provide evening meals due to staffing (pingdemic?) and we were well aware of this prior to arrival (very good communication via e-mail on possible local eateries). Again, not a problem for us, but there is no bar/drinks availability without dining so just beware.
We will recommend to our rellies and friends as a great place to stay – such a beautiful area.

Response from Neil Allcock, Owner at Rushop Hall
Responded 19 Aug 2021
Dear Fussyminx, Thank you for the review - you said some very kind things which we do appreciate. Just a couple of points about the second paragraph of your review: We do advise everyone that asks that we are no longer providing evening meals and always let people know in advance of their stay. We also recommend local establishments where excellent meals can be obtained. I agree about the signage and we have arranged for this to be upgraded when the summer rush is over so thank you for confirming our thoughts. We do not currently put any information in the room because of the risk of passing on Covid from one guest to another - this is recommended by Visit England and as soon as things return to normal we will put the information folders back in all of the rooms. Jan & I are available for walking advice and for anything else that you might need. We are on EE mobile network and do not have any network issues anywhere at Rushop Hall so I am puzzled about this. In the past we have had some issues with other networks but to be very honest there is nothing that we can do to improve your mobile signal. Whilst we do not have a bar we do have a drinks licence so we are able to supply wine, bottled beer etc. Just give us a call or knock on the door and we will bring it to your room. Yours sincerely, Jan & Neil Rushop Hall

Me and my husband stayed at Rushop Hall for a romantic weekend away in July. We stayed in the very cute and cosy PepperPot cottage. Tiny place as described on their website, so we knew what to expect. Jan was very friendly and welcomed us as we arrived very late, but that was no problem. Rushop Hall is in the middle of a very narrow country lane, very quiet place, just lovely and peaceful. The cottage had everything we needed even though it's so small. The bathroom was quite spacious actually and the shower nice and hot, fluffy towels are provided too. The kitchenette had a small fridge, kettle, toaster, sink, plenty of glasses and cups etc. Up via uneven steep stone steps was the bedroom, with enough space for a double bed, storage, 2 chairs and small table, small tv and fireplace. It was chilly so we put the fire on, and it was just lovely. We didn't have breakfast, we weren't offered either actually, so can't comment on that. Recommend this place for a romantic weekend near the lovely Castleton :)

We had such a lovely stay at Rushop Hall. It was a perfect location for us doing the ‘Mam Tor’ walk in the peaks.
Our room was so cosy, clean and so warm(it was very cold out!) so this was hugely appreciated.
Breakfast in the morning is in the cafe onsite and was truly delicious- both hosts are so friendly. Offered a lot of variety and very attentive.
We only stayed for one night but it was absolutely perfect for what we needed and when we come back to the peaks we will not hesitate to stay here again

Thank you!

Stayed at the Pepper Pot self catering as part of this property. Information from Holiday cottages was to contact the property a couple of days before to make arrangements to collect keys. After trying a couple of times sent a text for information and told property would be ready and they would be there to greet us. We arrived and it wasn't clear where to go. We found someone in the cafe kitchen and were told to go straight to the accommodation. It was all open ready for us.

Lovely little place. Really pleased with it. Unpacked the car and read the information. Due to covid - 19 they weren't giving the usual greeting and showing around which is fine in the current circumstances. We were asked to put bed linen in bags provided and wipe down the surfaces before leaving. Again no issue. However, one small used jay cloth that was provided made that difficult.

We were disappointed that no one came just to check we were OK and to see if we had any questions or needed anything. A knock on the door and step back from it would satisfy the worry over covid. We tried to contact the owner about the wifi code, if we could book breakfast, or what to do with the keys when we left, unfortunately no signal on our phones to ring number provided. We saw no one around and tried knocking at the B and B a number of times to no response.

On the day we left we stripped the bed as instructed. The mattress had a topper and protector on it, but the mattress itself had definitely seen better days and the duvet was ......... I have no words to describe but can only say it looked 10 years old.

Its a lovely area. The B and B and other properties looked great. Lovely quaint property. We had a great relaxing stay but our treatment or lack of hospitality, customer service, or whatever you like to call it left us a bit deflated.

A disappointing review and one that, I feel, lacks understanding of the precautions required to ensure that a guest has a safe stay during the current Covid-19 pandemic. We request that the guests strip their bedding and put that together with any towels, bath mats and tea towels in the bag provided. This is to protect our cleaning staff so that they are not required to have any contact with any items that guests have touched. Likewise with the disinfectant spray that we provide together with a cloth so that door handles etc can be wiped down upon departured. There are only 3 doors and a couple of light switches so I think that a cloth is adequate. Again this is to protect our cleaning staff. These are guidelines provided by The Visit England "We're good to go" scheme of which we are a member. They are not optional. It is only a request and if the guests feels strongly then I will strip the cottage thereby protecting our staff. Currently we avoid any unneccesary contact with guests other than by email or telephone. If serving meals we wear face masks and sanitise.This is to protect both the guests and us and is a precautionery measure which most people seem to appreciate. Certainly these are the first guests to have complained about us trying to protect them. There is phone signal both in the cottage and outside so I do not understand why they were unable to contact us. We use EE and never have any issues. The Pepper Pot is adjacent to where we live and where we spend every evening unless we are providing evening meals to our guests in which case we are in the cafe kitchen (where they originally found us) where we provide evening meals and breakfast - about 30 m from The Pepper Pot. Every morning we provided breakfast for our other guests and that is where we could be found. Hardly requiring Sherlock Holmes to work out that we would be in the kitchen cooking for B&B guests at breakfast time! These guests were self catering but could have had breakfast if they had contacted us. We are on site 24/7 so believe that we are easily contactable. The matress is less than 12 months old and the duvet is relatively new and is within a duvet protector so I am puzzled by those commenets. Sometimes once someone has decided that they have not been treated in the way that they believe that they should they will keep adding to the list to justify the complaint and this is what seems to have happened here. Unfortunately because the guest has hidden behind a false name we have been unable to contact them. I think that on the whole our reviews are fairly good so would ask that anyone reading this judges for themselves rather than relies on what I perceive to be a slightly vindictive and atypical review.

After an awful journey (nearly 3 hour delay on M6) we finally got to Rushop Hall after 11pm. Neil greeted us warmly got us a jug of fresh milk offered us help with our cases and showed us to our room. Considering the lateness of the hour Neil was so kind to us which made us feel better about being so late. The room was well equipped, clean and bright with a lovely view, which obviously we only saw the following morning. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, hot and freshly cooked, nothing too much trouble and so politely waited upon. Thank you Neil and Jan for such a memorable and pleasant stay. Will definitely be back.

From the offset you are greeted by someone who will take you to your room/cottage, free milk is offered which is always a great help. We were met by Neil and Jan’s daughter, (forgive me I’m sorry I have forgotten her name), very walk and welcoming and showed us to our cosy B&B room. Unfortunately our heating was not working, this issue was solved so quickly and without hesitation! We ended up in the big cottage between two of us, which was obviously nice. Had breakfast both mornings which is served warm and to your liking, Neil and Jan throughout would stop for a quick chat and offer recommendations for local food and drink. I would stay here again in a heart beat, a hidden treasure!

My partner and I were driving from Castleton in the dark, we’d been sent directions by our hosts but had our sat nav on also to guide the way. We accidentally took a wrong turn (as guided by the sat nav) into coldwall farm. We tried to turn around and got our car stuck in the mud. We called the hosts to ask for help as there wasn’t much we could do in the freezing cold and pitch black apart from ring recovery. They refused to contact the farmer as they had a bad relationship with him and suggested that he’d be very upset if we were to speak to him ourselves. They did not offer any advice - not even a taxi number. They were a ten minute walk away so could have theoretically come out and offered assistance however small. They repeatedly accused us of not having read their directions properly rather than offering any constructive advice or assistance. We were clearly in quite high anxiety and in a difficult situation. We finally arrived 2 hours later at the B and B. The next morning we were rushed through breakfast as we were the last sitting (they seemed quite put out when we said we’d rather eat later than 8.30 on a Sunday morning!) and the owner was unfriendly. Bed was comfy and location was stunning but unfortunately let down by the hostile reception.

Talk about trying to shift the blame or failing to acknowledge your own shortcomings and when things go badly wrong try to push the blame on to others. The facts are: 1) They chose to spend the afternoon in Castleton rather than checking in first meaning that they would arrive when it was dark. 2) They chose to ignore the "do not follow sat nav" instruction. 3) They chose to ignore the directions from Castleton that were sent to them. 4) They chose to drive past the sign stating Coldwall Farm in big, bold letters. 5) They chose to try to turn around in a muddy field rather than in the farmyard. 6) They chose to await the arrival of the AA rather than speak with the farmer who would have helped. 7) They chose not to tell the farmer that they had damaged his field and snook off like thieves into the night once freed by the AA. Whilst I am prepared to help guests in any way I can there are limits and as we all know "stupid is as stupid does". Oh, and Tabitha. Just in case you didn't notice. We are a b&b and not a breakdown service so we wouldn't have been able to rescue you if your car had broken down in Castleton either!

Stayed here recently for one night with family, two rooms. Spotless, atmospheric bed & breakfast with superb staff. Perfect for walks and exploring the magical Peak District (just a short drive to Castleton, Mam Tor and the caves. Breakfast in the converted barn café was generous and well-cooked, bedrooms comfortable with great countryside views. The staff and owners were discreet, helpful and obviously run a ship shape business. Will thoroughly recommend, and hope to return again. Neil (the owner) went out of his way to post on a missing soft toy (my daughter left behind), and all our family agreed this was a great place to stay. So close to the noise of Manchester, yet (thankfully) so far away in the peace and tranquility of the Peak District.

We stayed in the Shepherds Hut at Rushop Hall and despite some mixed weather we had an amazing weekend. Although the Hut is obviously compact, it has everything necessary for a comfortable and cosy stay, including a great wood burning stove and a shower room. The great location of the Hut meant that we could open the door and we had alpacas at the doorstep. The Hall is located in great walking countryside and is very close to Castletown for those keen to explore the Blue John history of the area. The cooked breakfast at the Hall is excellent and is definitely recommended to make the stay at Rushop Hall complete.

We stayed in the Shepherd’s Hut and absolutely loved it! It was warm, cosy and has everything you could possibly need for a short break away. There is no wifi but we managed to get 4G phone signal and we took our own DAB radio too. But it was lovely being away from the digital world. And for me, the best part was sharing the field with alpacas. Lots to do in the area and our hosts Neil and Jan were fantastic and very helpful. We would definitely come back. Thank you so much for a perfect break!

Does Rushop Hall take dogs in the rooms?
Answer from Neil A
Peak District National Park, United Kingdom5 contributions72 helpful votes
Hello, We accept dogs into the self catering cottages (min. 3 night stay and £15 per dog), and Pepper Pot where we offer B&B but it is detached from the other B&B rooms so dogs in Pepper Pot do not affect other guests but it is a minimum 2 night stay. We do not accept dogs into our other B&B rooms (min. 1 night stay) because of the potential for it to impact upon other guests but are happy for you to leave your dog in the car overnight or in our laundry area.
