Found this B&B whilst searching the internet and checking reviews on this site. Full payment is requested on arrival but then this is to be expected, as it would be easy for someone to leave without paying otherwise, as each room has its own private entrance and key. We stayed in the Garden Room which was very clean and very tastefully decorated. There was a lovely conservatory attached to the bedroom with two chairs and a coffee table with plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and magazines detailing places to visit. There was the lovely extra little touch of a little tray of wine glasses and corkscrew. The bathroom was also decorated to a high standard with lovely toiletries. Outside of our room, in the garden, was also a little ornate table and chairs for our own use.
The breakfast choice (chosen the day before) was extensive and ready for us when we got to our table (shown to us the day before, when we arrived) at 8.30am, which is the set time for breakfast. The table was layed out with a gorgous flower pattern bone china tea set and matching plates, with quiet classical music playing in the background, which made for a very relaxing breakfast. Added to this was the lovely view out of the dining room window. The full english breakfast was enormous and very hot, with a choice of brown or white toast. Elaine and William were very friendly and courteous and were happy to give recommendations of places to visit and Elaine even wrote down directions for us to drive to the wonderful Chatsworth House via a scenic route.
There are the 2 pubs and a restaurant that you can walk to but they do get booked up very quickly, so it is best to go early or book if possible.
We will definitely be returning to Choir Cottage again and recommending this B&B to our friends and relations. This really is a little gem of a B&B.
Thank you Elaine and William for a very pleasant stay.
