“Friendly”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We spent three nights here and found the owners friendly and made us feel comfortable. The room was smallish for a longer stay and early morning traffic a little noisy. The shower was excellent. The breakfast menu excellent. Ideal place to see local area attractions and walkers.

Decided to visit for a short break based on other feedback seen.
We found The Haven easily and were pleased with the guest parking.
Our welcome was warm and we were made to feel comfortable as soon as we arrived. Our room was at the rear of the property and we were really pleased with the decor, cleanliness, bedding etc.
Our hosts have a wealth of local knowledge and the discounts available to guests is well worth investigating. There is a local taxi firm that also provided a good prompt and polite service.
We made the most of our stay and travelled into Sheffield using public transport - the links from Bakewell are many and frequent.
We ate out at The Manners pub just up the road- really friendly service and good food. Our second night, we ate at The Pointing Dog and Duck .... Fabulous! The food, wine and service was excellent- we are planning a return visit.
Barbara and Jeremy made myself and my sister really feel like we were at home and we would definitely recommend a stay here. Both myself and Anne feel like we have made two new friends and can't wait to return.
Thank you for a wonderful time ..... Eileen & Anne x

We stayed here for 4 nigths this time, and we have also been here before.
The hosts where so kind and friendly to us, lovely people. Everything is very clean and high standard, and Jeremy and Barbara are so helpful giving us advice on things to see and what to do in Bakewell and nearby. Its a short walking distance to the town with lots of lovely little shops and places to take a drink and have something to eat. We will absolutely recommend this B&B to everybody. Next time we'll stay here again. Lovely B&B with lovely hosts!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at the Haven. Comfortable beds, amazing shower and lovely choices for breakfast. Having private parking is always a bonus, especially in small towns. Jeremy and Barbara were friendly and welcoming hosts. Short walking distance to the town with lots of places to eat and drink. Will not hesitate to stay again if we are in the area.

We had a great time here. Jeremy our host got things off to a good start by kindly picking us up from the station and driving past Chatsworth. Excellent breakfast and very friendly atmosphere. Barbara's oatcakes (which in this part of the world are oat pancakes rather than biscuits) are delicious and filling and you should definitely try them. The Haven is very near the centre of Bakewell and is also a great jumping off point for walking in the Peak District which we did. Jeremy also has an arrangement with several local restaurants for discounted meals which meant that we didn't spend a fortune eating in the evening either. Our room on the ground floor was beautiful and had a lovely ensuite. Altogether a perfect few days.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mum over the weekend and couldn't fault it. The hosts are so right for this business, they are genuinely welcoming, kind and thoughtful. You really feel taken care of! The location is great too, just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre and with parking. It's a lovely place. :o)

Recently spent time in the Peak District and stayed at The Haven B&B. When we arrived we were welcomed by the owner Jeremy, I must say a very warm welcome.
The room was perfect, good size room and en suite. The location was great for exploring Bakewell, a five minute walk into the main square. I would go back with no hesitation. Lovely hosts, room and great breakfast.
