This cottage lies secluded in the gardens of the penrose bed and breakfast establishment. My wife and I have just returned from a six day stay in the property and it was the warmest,cosiest And cleanest cottage we have ever rented. If you are looking for a wonderfully peaceful break then look no further. We will be returning soon. John...

This is the third time I have stayed here and would not consider any where else in Derbyshire. Very comfortable accommodation, quiet location but within half an hours drive of lots of attractions such as Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall and many others in the Peak District.

I have to be careful, it took me some time to find this place, and now I come here often so I don't want you taking my booking. Keith and Daryl have created a peaceful, stylish and inspirational suite where I am easily able to write, think, meditate, work, and occsionally set off the smoke alarms. Occasionally I stay in...

We have just returned home from spending a wonderful weekend in Critch. Our hosts were fabulous and went above and beyond any expectations. Thank you so much for making us ALL so welcome, particularly my not so little refugee!! If you need to stay in and around Critch this is definitely the place to stay.

Perfect bed and breakfast in a lovely setting. Clean rooms with everything we needed for our stay. We stayed in the suite and had breakfast delivered to our private lounge. Keith and Daryl were very accommodating and provided everything we needed. Breakfast was very good quality and cooked extremely well. Excellent stay!

We've had two stays here, once in the cottage and once in the suite. Both exceeded our expectations with a high level of comfort and cleanliness, well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. Booking arrangements and communications were very easy and straightforward. Daryl and Keith have created a beautiful oasis of calm in a stunning location. They were perfect...

The suite provides everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Large, warm, comfortable lounge. Two bedrooms, handy if there only two of you for overflow belongings! Well equipped kitchen for making your own meals if you want to be self-sufficient. Darryl and Keith are very welcoming. Highly recommended.

“The cottage is at the bottom of the garden and gives you the feeling of being on your own, it is very quiet other than for the sounds of nature. The suite is attached to the main house, it is effective and aesthetically pleasing.”
