The prefect B and B! Welcoming hosts, nice ensuite rooms, lovely decor, super breakfast ( whatever you want). In addition, a comfortable guest lounge overlooking the garden with a TV and DVD player and a complete kitchen for those who like to self-cater. Pretty village with a very nice pub just down the road. Can't fault it.

Spent two very comfortable nights here with our dog. We had a warm welcome from Caroline even though we arrived very late which we really appreciated after a very slow and long journey. Dog was also welcomed and room was very comfortable, the only slight negative was the bathroom was a little dated but it was functional. Breakfast was superb,... More

Yes we appreciate your comments about the shower room. It is the last of our rooms to be decorated and is closed for November so that it will be up to the standard of the others with a larger shower and heated floor. More

We stayed at this B and B for 3 nights late May Bank Holiday, 2 adults and 2 small dogs. Owners are friendly and helpful and know the local area well.

Thank for your review. You will be pleased to hear that our towels have been updated recently!! Re the dogs we do try to keep our garden immaculate and so we do ask that dogs are exercised in the field just to the rear of the house - this is usually seen as a big plus for most dog owners.... More

Absolutely loved our 3 night stay at the Townhead B&B. We were made very welcome by the owners David and Caroline. The breakfast was superb, lots of fresh homemade produce. The bed was soooooo comfy. Our dog was welcomed too! Excellent location for long walks and visits to various Derbyshire locations. Recommend and will definitely return.

Stayed over the August Bank Holiday weekend and had a truly wonderful time. Brilliant facilities for a Bed and breakfast, really really great breakfasts and great hospitality from Caroline and Dave. Loads of information available for walks and local attractions too - some really thoughtful touches. Definitely will be back.

Superb stay at half term with my son. The owners were so nice and helpful. The breakfasts were lovely and we would recommend the porridge. The best b&b we have stayed in! Nice location and a good walk to Matlock Bath.

We spent two nights at the charming Townhead Farmhouse on our way north and found it a very comfortable base from which to explore the lovely surrounding countryside and nearby attractions. Caroline and David are perfect hosts.

Such lovely accommodation and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. We stayed with our 17 year old daughter as a base to climb Kinder Scout and to visit the local attractions. Loved it so much, we have booked again for next year...

Such a pretty house in the beautiful village of Bonsall! Nothing but fields out the back, where we could take the dog for her morning and evening constitutional.
