We had the same room, which had been improved with an updated en suite shower room and I'm told will be further improved with some more lighting in the en suite. The room was warm and comfortable with a very comfy bed. The breakfasts were...

We always stay at the Pig of Lead each year as it is near to my sister and her family. Julie is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Julie's husband John often gives Julie a hand cooking the wonderful breakfast you will be set up for the day and will not need to eat again until tea time....

Our room was lovely - spacious, well equipped and with a huge comfortable bed! Breakfast was delicious and set us up well for the day. The location is handy for walking in the area, and is just a short (steep!) walk into Bonsall where there are a couple of pubs where we had some good meals, and a deli where...

When I booked this I thought the Pig of Lead was a pub, not that I wanted it to be and I was pleased to find it wasn't. A warm welcome from Julie made sure this was a really enjoyable stay. The rooms and facilities are excellent with everything you need and it's a great place to stay to see...

Stayed for two nights B&B and could not fault the service I received. Julie welcomed me on arrival with tea and copious quantities of biscuits. The room was clean and warm with everything that I needed. The bed was comfortable. I was delighted to find that the shower enclosure was significantly larger than average and allowed for comfortable movement therein....

Stayed for a long weekend and was treated to a great time. The room was clean, it had an en-suite bathroom and the breakfast was to die for, set you up for the day. This B&B is ideal for visiting the White Peak area. We walked quite a lot of the area - Chatsworth Park, Eastern Moor, Carsington Water and...

Just loved our stay at Pig of Lead. Host went above and beyond!!!! Lovely clean open rooms, fantastic bed (slept like a rock) and modern bathrooms! Thank you so much - wish we could have stayed longer. Felt like a home away from home but had plenty of privacy and sound proof rooms (just what you want on your honeymoon).
