“Very impressive B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

We stayed for two nights over the bank holiday weekend using Bakewell as a base to meet up with friends and for some walking in the peak district. We hadn't checked out trip advisor prior to booking but on reading the reviews now I can only echo all the positive comments. John and Sue are great- geniunely friendly, helpful and relaxed. The atmosphere was relaxed, the bed comfortable, the room immaculate and the cooked breakfast hearty. All in all we were really impressed and would thoroughly recommend any of our friends to stay there.

Stayed two nights over the May Day bank holiday. We received a very warm welcome from John and Sue, and taken to our room (no.2) where we immediately felt relaxed and able to unwind after our three and a half hour journey as we enjoyed tea and cake. The room was spotless, and the bathroom large and we spent a peaceful night in the comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, perfectly cooked with plenty of choice and alternatives. The care and attention to detail in the room made it a pleasure to spend time there which I did Sunday afternoon "working" whilst sitting at the window admiring the lovely garden and views of open pasture beyond, whilst my husband was off on a photography course for the day. We have stayed in a number of B&B's over the years and this was by far one of the best. Thanks to Sue and John - the perfect hosts. Thoroughly recommended.

My husband and I stayed there three nights. Sue and John took great care of us. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Every day we came home the tea, coffee and biscuits in our room were always restocked. You could tell they paid attention to even the smallest details. We loved our time there!

Have just returned from a great stay with John and Sue. Very friendly hosts, spotlessly clean house and room. Beds so comfy with lovely big bathroom. The most amazing part, the truly delicious breakfast. I could not get enough of the fantastic home made bread (toasted) as well as the beautiful full english breakfast. I hardly needed to eat again that day. A really super place to stay, Highly recommended and can't wait for the next visit. Great surrounding area for walks too. (Chatsworth, Haddon Hall etc all with in walking distance.)

Just arrived back from this delightful bed and breakfast.
This is an amazing find and John and Sue have given thought to every last detail.
Rooms are very clean and comfortable,and the ensuite was fantastic.
Breakfast was great, and all food sourced locally.
On arrival we were greeted with tea and cake.
Cannot speak highly enough of this little gem.

We have just returned from a lovely 4 night stay with Sue and John at their B&B. As others have said, it was a pleasure to stay here. The room (no. 1) was very large and comfortable with a double aspect; window to the front & back of the house. The décor is fresh and clean ad to a very high standard. The breakfasts were very filling with a choice of full English or salmon & scrambled egg or any combination in between.

Normanhurst is about halfway between Bakewell centre & Ashford on the Water, both about a pleasant 15 minutes stroll away. Ashford is a lovely little village with a couple of nice pubs for a meal if you want a change from Bakewell itself (although you’ll need a torch at night as the street lights only go so far along the main road & it’s pitch black later on).

John & Sue were very helpful with their knowledge of the local area & suggestions of things to do (like avoid Chatsworth at the weekend as it’s far too busy & go on Monday instead). I’d recommend you make the most of their suggestions. All in all we would definitely recommend this B&B.

Normanhurst is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in . There was lots of attention to detail that made for a very comfortable stay , the room was lovely with a great view over the fields and everything was spotlesly clean. The bed was very comfortable after a long day walking !
Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice . It is only a 10 - 15 minute walk into Bakewell
John and Sue are very welcoming and we would definitely recommend this B&B
