We were made to feel very welcome and the accommodation was first class. We loved room 5 which was attractively furnished and was quiet and private. The lounge/breakfast area was excellent and we were invited to use the settee, extensive library and TV at any time. There was an additional sitting area linked to a fitted kitchen and this could be used for sandwich making for packed lunches or preparing a meal in the evening. From this room there was access to a private garden which was in the process of becoming a lawned area with outside table.
The breakfasts were very enjoyable, tasty and freshly cooked and Caroline guessed correctly that I could manage a portion of black pudding in addition to the full English odered.
Our purpose for being in the area was to explore footpaths and Townhead was ideal - out through a gate at the back of the property and straight onto the hills over Matlock. Bonsall village offered 2 good pubs and we had a great night with local musicians 'jamming' in the Barley Mow.
Our host were very accommodating and offered to pick us up if we went for a longer walk. We will certainly be returning in the near future.
