Good Hotel Guide Review
With a ‘spectacular location’ in a small village high in the White Peak landscape, James Moffett’s Grade II* listed manor house with its stone floors, oak beams and mullioned windows also offers ‘excellent value for money’. Beer and Prosecco are offered on arrival, though you might prefer to order tea by the fire in the sitting room, with its massive stone fireplace and oak panelling. The complimentary drinks are just part of the service: ‘We were very pleasantly surprised to be presented with a packed lunch’, perfect to eat while exploring the Peak District national park. Walkers with dogs can stay in the annexe. Comfortable bedrooms done in traditional style range from two single rooms, which share a bathroom, to the Master Suite, which has a four-poster bed. Regular visitors, on their 25th stay, had only praise for ‘our favourite hotel’. However, another reader disliked the music at dinner. Although not fancy, the locally sourced food hits the spot, with such dishes as chargrilled High Peak fillet steak, and a separate vegetarian menu.
