“Wonderful B&B!!!”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

I stayed five nights, and had a delightful time. Victoria is a perfect B&B host, and made my stay very enjoyable. The house itself is well situated along bus routes for travelers like myself who use public transit, and is nestled in a picturesque village with great views of the hills of the Peak District. It is very convenient to Chatsworth House, Bakewell, and good hiking routes. Personally, I liked the fact that all guests were seated at a single table in the breakfast room, which encouraged conversation. The food was delicious, and Victoria was very keen to ensure everyone was comfortable and content. I had the opportunity to chat extensively with her and her mother, who also lives at the house, as well as play with her very well behaved dog (who is kept away from guests unless desired). The only concern is that certain mobile carriers (I have 3) have no signal in Rowsley, but the wifi signal in the B&B was quite strong. I will definitely stay here again should my travels bring me back to this area.

Nice , very clean and comfortable room at the front of the house with en suite shower room.No traffic noise btw.Excellent breakfasts. Vicky and her Mum could have not been more helpful or charming. Molly the dog was nice too! I cannot think of any reasonable criticism.

Room Tip: The one we were in at the front overlooked a field of sheep.

A great little B & B right in the middle of the Peak District. Very handy to Chatsworth House & Haddon Hall. The room was very comfortable & was serviced daily. The room was well provisioned & contained a very comprehensive information pack. Breakfasts were lovely.......I especially enjoyed the home made bread!! Victoria & Maureen were very welcoming & were exceptional hosts. i would recommend this B & B to anyone.

Thank you Victoria and Mum for making our visit so enjoyable. Your knowledge of places to visit, the history of the area etc. was invaluable. Our room at the back of the house was quiet and the our giant sized bed was extremely comfortable. The room facilities were excellent and well thought out (nice little extra touches). Loved the variety of paintings around the house. Delicious breakfasts, nicely cooked and presented. Afraid meal at Grouse & Claret pub was not good (we were not the only guests to encounter this - perhaps it was a "bad" night). Would highly recommend the Ashton Arms (Ashton-in-the Water) but you need to book and also the Derwentwater Arms in Calver (bit difficult to find but ask a local once you are actually in the village) - again, you may need to book. All in all very enjoyable stay. Hardwick Hall, Chatsworth fascinating places to visit - leave lots of time as you will need it. Doreen & Brian

Reviewed 27 June 2012

I stayed here with my wife for a weekend recently. The owners were most welcoming on our arrival. We found our room to be immaculately clean with a peaceful view from our window of sheep in the field opposite our room and the attractive hills rising behind it.

The room had all the facilities you could require, TV, DVD, Wi-Fi, welcome tray including biscuits etc. The room had an en suite that included a very good shower ( something of a rarity in many B&B's )

The breakfast was excellent and included toast made from home made bread using flour supplied by the water mill in the village. An alternative to the delicious full english on offer was smoked salmon and scrambled egg. This is something I have not come across before.

Set below the Station house is what used to be the old station yard. This has been built upon to make the Peak Outlet Shopping Village. One of the old station buildings remains in the centre of the complex and is now home to the Peak Barn food shop selling delicious cakes and pies etc.The Peak Shopping Outlet is a must for anyone who likes a bargain.

The location of the B&B was perfect being half way between Matlock and the market town of Bakewell. Just down the road is the Peak Railway that has regular steam trains that go back and forth to Matlock. The village is a delight with good places to eat and the water mill and craft centre that is well worth a visit.

Vicky and Maureen were both very friendly and their house immaculate. It was great to have a lounge in which to sit and relax. Rowsley is central to both Haddon Hall and Chatsworth house, both of which are well worth visiting. There is a pub about 5 minutes walk away, serving excellent meals and an outlet shopping area next door. One small problem is the size of the beds if you are over 6 feet tall.

I didn't find this the cheapest place to stay but loved the location - Lots of local great pubs of different prices. Chatsworth was just up the road and there is the Peak Village shopping outlet walking distance from this B&B. You will find a good quality breakfast and a high standard of cleanliness.

Room Tip: I have stayed here a few times - three times with previous owners and once with current owner. I hav...
