Take a relaxing bath or invigorating shower before walking up the village for your evening meal, or drive into Bakewell (4 miles) and choose from Italian, French, Indian, fish and chips or 'pub grub'.
After a quiet and peaceful, comfortable night's sleep and our hearty locally sourced Derbyshire breakfast, try hiring a cycle (10% discount arranged) to enjoy the newly opened 8-mile stretch of the Monsal Trail (just two fields walk away), taking you over the viaduct at Monsal Head opening up to truly superb vews of Monsal Dale and on to Blackwell.

    “Perfect!”

    Wonderful bed, lovely bedroom, Up-to-date bathroom with a little sitting room with sofa, tv and books,all decorating very nicely. All very clean and new. Hosts were welcoming and professional. Nice location next to a field of cows and the end of a small road in a nice village three and a half miles out of Bakewell. Breakfast was superb, looking out to their garden with many different birds to watch. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Would definitely go back.
