"Lovely peaceful spot"
Beautifully refurbished creamery. Elegantly furnished to a high standard. Wonderful king-sized bed. Everything you could need is provided, spotlessly clean, although the living area is spacious it was cosy and warm on a wet October day! Only tiny let down is that the bathroom is not quite to the high standard of the rest of the accommodation, but is still spotlessly clean and has everything you could need including some nice additional touches.Great base for some lovely walks and exploring the local area, about 20 min walk to the local pub. The owner was also extremely nice and I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation or go back.
Thanks for your review. I note your comments about the bathroom and our plumber is due to come very soon to replace the bath panel and then we get the decorator to tidy things up. We do always like to keep on top of everything. Hope to see you back in Derbyshire soon. Thanks, Jane
