We stayed here for 3 nights as a long weekend away, and there is really nothing bad to say at all! Elton is a very quiet little village tucked away about 5 miles from Bakewell and very close to Chattsworth and Haddon Hall.
The owners Jenny and Chris have been doing this for ages and it shows very helpful and happy to help, we stayed in the red room, which is a good size couple of arm chairs plus the double bed, en suite bathroom and all clean and tidy, the rooms have lots of character with the beds chest of draws etc
The breakfast was great in the old café area which is fun, good selection of cereals etc and choice of cooked breakfast and if they had them eggs from their own chickens!
All in all I would happily go back especially when you think of the price per night so if you are sightseeing or walking this a great place to stay, there is a good list of walks (10-15)in a little pamphlet on the table as you walk that all leave from Elton (though you need an OS map as well)
The only real down sides is that there is no where to eat in the evening in Elton you have to travel to Winster, Birchover or Bakewell though there is a pub which does open but at 8.40pm and serves a good very cheap pint…
