Spent one night here as a birthday treat. Were offered the last room and were told it was a petite room, on the small side. How wrong,it was small but have stayed in smaller hotel rooms. The furnishings and the bathroom was fabulous. Squishy pillows and fluffy towels. We ate at the bar and food and customer service were excellent....

Warmly welcomed on arrival and we were very pleased with our room. We stayed in 'Bubnell' in the farmhouse which was very cosy and quaint, interesting books around the room and lots of little complimentary treats. I enjoyed having fresh milk available from the fridge in the hallway. Dinner was lovely, service was fantastic. My other half loved his cheesecake...

Have recently returned from a wonderful stay at the Devonshire at pilsley! One night stay, 3course meal and breakfast booked through groupon. As soon as we drove onto the estate the Mrs was blown away. Major brownie points for me! The village itself was great and well worth a little walk around. The staff at the Devonshire arms were great...

Lovely dinner, nice bar, stylish room & ensuite, soft pillows & mattresses, friendly & welcoming staff; small and cosy establishment. Only negative was that once Full English breakfast arrives, in order to have fresh warm toast with it each guest goes to buffet area to make own toast, leaving breakfast to start going cold on the dining table. We mentioned...

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in the cottages at the Devonshire Arms, in May 2016. The weather was cooperative, so we were able to see the area at it's best. We had the Celandine room, which was across the road from the pub, and upstairs. It had a small, pretty, bathroom, which really wouldn't work for larger people. I had...

This is an 'Inn With Rooms', and if you're expecting a glamorous country hotel on arrival, you'll be disappointed. It's a small village pub, and from the outside looks just that way. But inside it's beautiful and upstairs is something of a tardis. Our room was gorgeous with beautiful view, and amazing Chatsworth biscuits! We had a meal in the...

Part of the Chatsworth Estate, and two minutes drive from the famous Chatsworth House, this country pub/hotel is an ideal place if you like the open country, yet near enough to lovely small towns like Buxton or Bakewell. You're in the middle of the Peak District which is famous for its walks and country houses (not many open in winter)....

We had a very comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and the room was excellent. The bed was impressive requiring a small set of steps to climb up to it. High quality teas and coffees with some nice biscuits to compliment. The food was good, not fine dinning but gastro pub grub done very well. I would certainly wish to...
