So clean, comfortable with some fabulous little touches like the toiletries in the rooms to the fridge with fresh milk provided. Breakfasts were amazing and the hosts were so knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
The most perfect place, we couldn't fault anything about it and will certainly go back!
The hosts were really attentive. Even got a glass of wine to enjoy whilst Feeding the trout.
Wonderful hosts, came out to greet us on arrival & the service remained as good throughout our stay. Beautiful old 18th century cottage with a original features, great rooms & a luxury bathroom. Although close to Bakewell, it's in its own picturesque village.Fantastic breakfast & stunning garden.
Nice people and location although close to a busy road.
The room and bathroom are quite small and the bed is only a double.
Very friendly and helpful hosts
Close to busy road
The character of River Cottage, the river and gardens. It was close to the village but not part of it. Excellent breakfast, both in choice and quality.
Virtually everything. The welcome, the lovely large room with all the comforts that you would need, the marvelous breakfast, the location, the garden....I could go on. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
There was not anything that we didn't like with River Cottage. We were advised beforehand that we may hear road noise from the room. However, we did not really notice it and it certainly did not trouble our sleep.
This is an excellent home base for a Peak District visit. The grounds are beautiful, the inn is immaculate, and the owners are friendly and helpful. From the in-room refreshments to the bathroom amenities to the homemade jellies on the breakfast table, attention was paid to every detail.
Super location twixt Buxton, Bakewell & Chatsworth House, hosts are delightful and caring, the garden is superb, dozens of trout are in the stream (bring a book, camera, wine & cheese to enjoy that outdoor nook). River Cottage is a memorable retreat, with village walks and Rm 4 is large, comfortable and airy, with views of the garden. Oh, and they serve great breakfasts.
Didn't like having to leave! And while it's actually very easy to get there once you know how, ask for more details before making the drive.
loved it all thank you so much for a lovely time
Treated parents to a break for 50th wedding anniversary they were thrilled with the break. Fantastic setting clean relaxing accommodation and great hosts they didn't want to leave and want to go back for longer
The stay wasn't long enough nothing bad to say
Friendly and helpful couple. Very professionally run B&B.
We had a "Quiet" bedroom, not on the A6, but it was a warm night and with the bedroom windows open the traffic noise was very evident.
Great location next to a stream close to a pretty village. Room is spacious with everything you need, great breakfast and lovely hosts.
A peaceful & tranquil location with gracious hosts. Breakfast was lovely full of choices
This wonderful B&B is the best one that we have ever stayed at and includes many more items that are not standard at other B&B's - bath robes, shaving cream, hairspray, nail file etc. Our hosts were wonderful and the amenities were 5 star and then some. We really enjoyed the wonderful cooked breakfasts and these kept us going all day long. The B&B's location wonderful near a flowing river and the gardens are post card perfect. It is the perfect location for exploring Derbyshire and we would have loved to have stayed longer. It had the most comfortable bed that I have ever been in and they think of all the small things that make the stay perfect!
Absolutely faultless and wish we could have stayed longer.
Conveniently situated on the edge of Ashford on the water we found this to be a beautiful B&B, very comfortable, tastefully furnished with a relaxing atmosphere. Wonderful garden- great chill out zone on the patio feeding the trout and the ducks in the river. Very tasty breakfast. Delightful hosts - helpful, friendly -highly recommend.
A lovely location and attentive and helpful owners.
The reports are true.This is as close to perfect as you are likely to get, with warm and friendly hosts and all comforts.
Nothing not to like.
This was the best B&B we have ever stayed in and wished we could have extended our stay
There was nothing to not to like
Good quiet location, very friendly and helpful owners and staff. Excellent breakfasts.
Double beds were tight for two healthy mature adults - people used to Queen or King size beds may experience similar issues.
The B&b was excellent and a great location for exploring the Peak District Gilly and John were great hosts, the room was great and breakfast was fantastic
There is no guest sitting room, which would be nice to have.
The atmosphere created by the owners John and Jilly was lovely. Their attention to detail was exemplary such as the fridge for milk etc and the use of binoculars and maps. Very thoughtful. Breakfast was superb. Definitely stay again without hesitation
It is NOT a dislike but I think it a good idea if the breakfast time was a bit longer. It was 0830 till 0915 and could be longer. This is a constructive comment as opposed to a criticism
