Delightful place to stay with a welcoming atmosphere. We had a clean and airy room with comfortable bed. Our hostess was very helpful, providing us with advice and literature on where to visit in our ancestry search. Breakfast was substantial and very tasty. The hotel is located right in the center of this pretty town but we had a quiet... More

Lovely place to stay for a short break. Very comfortable bed, scrupulously clean, excellent breakfast and very friendly hosts. Only slight negative was the extremely steep staircase to upstairs rooms. Lovely setting in picturesque town with lots of individual shops and peaceful walks. Bus stop outside hotel made travel into Derby very easy

Thank you so much for your kind review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The stairs to 3 of our rooms are steep so if you do have mobility problems just ask me for a ground floor room when you book, I have 3 and it usually isn't a problem.

We stayed at the Coach House with some of our family. The rooms were very comfortable and the owner was most helpful, particularly in respect of the younger members of the family.
