David is the perfect mine host.tea on arriving,tea brought to your room in the morning.
Fantastic breakfast and the finest porridge we have ever tasted.All the fixtures and fittings have been done by David himself using old fittings from all over the UK and France,making the ambiance quirky and unique.David also took the trouble to book us a table at the local pub for our evening meal.We had a very special reason for staying at Parsons Houseon Sept 2nd,David found out and took special steps to make us even more welcome.
Truly,THE BEST B& B EVER

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 :)

Having stayed here six years ago, we returned last weekend. To call this a B&B somehow sidesteps the boutique hotel-standard accommodation and fantasic food which, for us, has become synonymous with the hospitality and style at the Parsons House. David is discret and always helpful and hosts an extremely professional set up. The service and presentation of the locally sourced breakfast (choice available) is as impressive as its taste!! This place is amazing and with the Devonshire Arms over the road offering an excellent evening meal of extremely good quality, one would go a long way to beat the value offered by the Parsons House. Could not recommend this very special place more highly.

Room Tip: White Room is fabulous and oozes character

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Parsons House. It's a beautiful, characterful old building. Our room (the White room) was very comfortable and peaceful. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, without being overbearing. (David is the spitting image of Jeremy Irons, even down to the husky voice!)

We would have liked television in our room, and a kettle, etc, to make drinks. David said to ask for tea or coffee whenever we wanted but we didn't like to keep asking.

Breakfast was fantastic. All the food was gorgeous.

Stayed at Parsons House for a night with my partner. A really beautiful house and village, the room was gorgeous and the shower fantastic! We were offered tea when we arrived early evening and the owner booked us a table at the pub for dinner. Also bought up tea in the morning which was lovely. Amazing breakfast!
I can't gush enough about this place, it was just perfect for our weekend away!

Had a 2 night stay here, not in the en-suite but still good, our own toilet and bathroom just outside our room. Most comfortable bed weve slept in whilst away, and the breakfast was the best. I didnt think I liked porridge but David's was just delicious with the main cooked food to follow. A couple of places near by to eat in the evening which were just as amazing. Would go back and would definitely recommend.
Thanks David
