This is the second time we've stayed at Merman Barn. The rooms are really comfortable, the breakfasts are great - including options for a cooked breakfast without it being full English - which is lovely when you're there for a few days. The welcome is fantastic. We will be staying there whenever we're in Tideswell.

We were in the area to attend a wedding. We were greeted warmly by Linda who helped with the luggage. Linda was helpful regarding arranging taxis and with suggestion of places to eat an evening meal. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. There was plenty of choice for breakfast which was very enjoyable.

On arrival we were greeted by Linda who welcomed us to her home. We had booked the Super king room and was amazed by the size of the bed. WOW what a room and fantastic views. It has everything you need for your stay and the breakfast was the best we have ever tasted, as its not cooked in fat....

We have just spent 4 lovely days here at a very friendly, clean and professionally run B & B. Linda is a kind and caring lady who provides lots of little touches which makes the stay all that much nicer. Excellent breakfast with a wide choice of menu, not your average full English. An excellent base for touring the Derbyshire...
