5/5 Excellent

Ideally located comfortable, clean accommodation.

Martin and Debby are excellent hosts, providing friendly and helpful hospitality. I have had the best sleep while staying there, in a very comfortable bed. All that is practically needed for the traveller is available. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, located in the centre of the lovely village of Ticknall.. The delicious breakfasts which are freshly cooked each day from a varied menu by Colin, are enough to set you up for the day. There are lovely walks in the Ticknall area, such as in Calke Park and Staunton Harold Reservoir. Calke Abbey is well worth a visit - 'The House Which Time Forgot'. Local towns such as Melbourne, Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Derby, are well worth a visit. The Peak District is reasonably close by. There is a regular bus service through Ticknall, if you want a break from driving. I would recommend the accommodation from a solo traveller to a family, as there is a single and a double room.

Pros: There was nothing to dislike

Cons: Can't think of anything.

Location: The location is ideal. The shop and café are next door, serving delicious food Many walks and interesting towns are nearby plus the Peak District.

Overnight stop for work

An overall pleasant stay - one of two self-contained annexes within the grounds of the proprietor’s house, fronted by a quaint cafe which also provides limited groceries for the village. Highlights - comfortable, clean double bed (there’s also a single bed tucked away in a side room), choice of cereals, fresh milk and ground coffee available in the small kitchen en route to the w/c, which features a nice shower. Although just set back from the main road (A514), it’s still a quiet location in a picturesque village. Friendly and accommodating proprietor. Choice of inclusive breakfast in the cafe (not run by the proprietor), a lovely place to sit with views across the main road through the village - this was the highlight for me and vindicated my decision not to stay at a chain hotel in the city centre. Minor points but the parking is a bit awkward if you wish to park within the grounds (via a boarded wooden gate directly off the main road), which is quite limited spatially - I left my car on the main road part on the kerb in the end. The property itself was comfortable but perhaps a little tired and basic inside, particularly the kitchen and toilet, but at the same retains a charm and certainly well suited for the explorer types (rather than those seeking a luxury, romantic w/e break). Kitchen might benefit from the addition of some fruit, cake etc. I’d probably return as it serves its purpose for me (plus has the draw of the inclusive breakfast in the cafe).
