A very warm welcome by the hosts and location ideal for cycling the Tissington trail. Great breakfast set us up for both days. The rooms were separate from the main house which is good and a nice touch is that a bottle of wine can be bought from the rack if you've forgotten some. Lynn and Gary are superb hosts...

Very well presented with great attention to detail, all the little extras you'd expect to find in a top flight hotel! Lynn and Gary made us feel very welcome and cooked an amazing breakfast. A short walk to a nice local pub for meals if you need.

Warm welcome and great base for what we wanted to do - cycling, walking and tea shops and village pubs. Everything clean and tidy. Well cooked breakfast with nice touches of fresh fruit, cheeses, fruit bread, and marinated fruit too. Lots of information and little extras like books, guides, games, torch, dvds, and even spectacles. Bedrooms are very comfortable with...

Ideal location for those looking to get away from it all. The accommodation is superb. Clean and well presented with those little extras that make all the difference. The Smithy holds that rustic charm typical of the Derbyshire Peaks but Lynn & Gary just take it that bit further with their personal touch on it all. The breakfast room IS...

We chose The Smithy because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Set in lovely countryside, the Smithy and barn have been converted into a wonderful B&B. Our hosts, Lynn & Gary, were very welcoming when we turned up on a cold February afternoon and showed us to our room, The Forge, on the upper floor of the barn. The...

The Smithy offers you better than you would expect in nearly every department. The hosts are simply fantastic - a warm welcome is just the start. All three of our evening meals were booked for us in local pubs, with a note left in our room letting us know where and when we would dine. Our wet and muddy kit...
