My husband and myself stayed at The Parsons House for the first time for one night at the end of July 2011.We holiday frequently in this area so decided to treat ourselves to a night at Parsons House as we usually stay in our family static caravan at Newhaven Caravan park. This B & B had been recommended to us by a friend and we can see why he loved it so much. It's a beautifully restored period house and Dave's attention to detail is wonderful.He chatted at length to us about all the work he has put into his property and it was very interesting to hear. His house has been a real labour of love over the years.
On our arrival we were shown to our room and Dave promply brought a tray up with hot drinks and biscuits. There are no tea making facilities in the room but this definitely wasn't a problem as Dave is happy to oblige with drinks when needed. He also asked what time we would like breakfast in the morning and arranged to bring up a tray of hot drinks half an hour before as a wake up call. One of the things we liked most about this accomodation was the fact that you are not met with time restrictions such as check in and check out times when you arrive.Everything is very relaxed at Parsons House just what we like.
After dropping off our bags and enjoying our tea and biscuits we left the b & b, crossed the road and took the footpath to the River Dove.After enjoying a long walk we arrived back at Hartington and enjoyed our evening meal sat outside the Devonshire Arms.
We stayed in the ensuite bedroom which was very spacious and the bed was huge!! As mentioned there is no television but really that's not a problem, it made a nice change and means that you are just able to enjoy the peace and quiet of Hartington.
Dave is a fabulous host and chef. (His breakfasts are second to none.)There is a choice of foods for breakfast, all locally sourced, fresh produce and nothing is too much trouble.
We would definitely return for another weekend when our three young boys next visit Nanny and Granddad. :)
Parsons House is the nicest B & B we have ever been to and we have been to plenty in the last 20 years.The fact that it's owner is one of THE nicest gentlemen you could ever wish to meet makes your stay here even more memorable.
Many thanks. Hope to see you again. Sharon and Ian Pargeter :)
