“Excellent value B&B”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

This is an excellent base for exploring an unspoilt part of the UK. Julie is first class as the ever-so-helpful yet unobtrusive host, and provides good local knowledge, as well as an excellent breakfast that sets you up very well for the day. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. We had the room with the super king size bed (and TV to match); this was perfect for us as all we wanted to do was sleep after long walks and hearty meals! This is a place to which we shall return.

Room Tip: Book in advance if you would like a room with a bath.

We returned to the Bonsall to meet up with friends and again chose to go to the pig of lead.
Julie met us with a smile as before and showed us to the same rooms we had before, which are lovely rooms. If I had to look for faults in this lovely B&B it would have to be that the bedroom lighting in the room we had is not as bright as one might hope, but if that is the worst we can find, then it shows how good it is. A great sitting area with a coal fire and leather seating makes for a cosy area for people to chat and Julie was kind enough to provide us with drinks rather than having to bring them from our rooms. A good breakfast in the morning sets you up for the day and you get that here. Just for good measure, if you go to the Barley Mow pub and let them know you are staying at the Pig of Lead, you get discount.

Room Tip: I get the feeling they are all good.

Stayed here for 2 nights and the service was excellent. JULIE is a talker but is very helpful and her service is fab, even dropped us off at the local pub to eat. The room we had was very clean, only one thing missing was a fridge in the room to chill the wine, she will even shop for you. Would recommend this b&b and would stay there again. THANKS JULIE & JOHN.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights last weekend as a last minute mini-break. After driving for over two hours, we received a very warm welcome from Julie who was consistently accommodating and friendly.
The room was lovely, spacious with an en suite too and a huuuuuge flat screen TV.
The BnB is right on the border of the peak district so there are hundreds of possible walking route - just outside is a footpath leading up through a woods and across the top of the hills, plus there is a stream and mini waterfalls everywhere too.
It is close enough to Cramford, Matlock, Bakwell.. so there is loads to do.
The breakfast was excellent too - Julie cooked whatever we wanted and provided endless coffee and orange juice too!

Overall, we were really impressed! Great hospitality, gorgeous room and very cosy lounge area downstairs too. Beautiful location.

Room Tip: All rooms look spacious - we had the super king which is super comfy!

This is a lovely B and B with a very welcoming host. Our room on the 2nd floor was spacious, had a massive comfy bed, and a bathroom with a shower and bath. The breakfast was really tasty with good quality ingredients cooked well. Our host went the extra mile, by giving us a free lift to the local pub (which was also fantastic - the Barley Mow). We will definitely return!!
