We had a lovely 2 night stay, and really couldn't have wished for a better standard of service. John and Gilly manage to combine being very professional with making you feel very welcome. The room was very comfortable, and the bed especially so. The bathroom was beauriful, and of course everything was spotless. Our bathroom wasn't en suite, but this was not a problem because it was just opposite on a very quiet corridor and robes were provided. It also meant that the bathroom was larger than an en suite and there was a bath as well as a shower. Breakfast was delicious! Some of the best bacon and sausage we've tasted, and the scrambled eggs with a large chunk of smoked salmon was a real treat. The fruit salad was also beaurtiful. There are two pubs serving evening meals less than 10 minutes stroll away. No street lights but they even provide a torch! One evening we opted for a 'picnic' evening meal sitting in the garden whilst watching the trout jump for food. Gilly and John seemed to have time to make each guest feel special, and were also able to give advice on where to visit and where to avoid.. Really convenient location for Chatsworth. Wish we could have stayed longer!
