Village edge with countryside view

Twin room with separate bathroom - Room adequate for overnight stay.

Beds long enough for one of us who is 6' 3". Good ventilation with view towards village centre from roof window, other view over parking and gardens. Within easy walking distance of thriving village with Post Office and pub/s, other facilities and places of historical interest. Delicious breakfast.

Friendly and comfortable

Lovely location and clean, comfortable room.

Paula welcomed us and was very helpful with local information. Only slight drawback was the stairsup to our room. My partner has mobility problems which made it difficult to get our cases upstairs.

A super find in Eyam-a great location in the heart of the Peak District.

The rooms were modern and nicely furnished. Pauline was accommodating and friendly.

Quaint cottage, great location, well looked after!

Pauline took every effort to make me feel at home, including arranging a hot plate for my Indian takeaway one night.

The room was comfortable, clean and had every mod con including a hairdryer and comfortable dressing gown. And perfect scrambled eggs. Thank you!

Staying at Innesree Cottage

Very friendly service from a lovely host Pauline, excellent accommodation with comfy beds and a superb breakfast to set you up for the day, we will be returning hopefully summer 2015, The Miners Arms is 15 minutes walk and is well worth a visit for dining also The Bulls Head Inn in Foolow has excellent food, the Landlord even gave us a lift back,

Ideal for a break

The room, service and food was perfect, in an excellent but quiet location.

Everything was done to make you feel at home. I would heartily recommend it to anyone.

Lovely location and very accomodating!

We used a satnav to find the b&b, which was great getting us there but unfortunately took us round the houses a bit and we ended up not quite knowing whether to go up or down the road to find it.

The owner told me this happens a lot so it is worth ignoring satnavs and driving through the village before going up the hill to the b&b. The owners were outside waiting for us when we arrived, which was nice and there was plenty of space for car parking. (This is always a worry for me as I am a new driver and parking isn't my strongest point!)

We were shown to our room, which was nice but quite cramped. We had an upstairs room with ensuite. All decorated wonderfully and lovely and clean. But as it was upstairs in a loft conversion, my 6'2 boyfriend did bump his head a couple of times. The view from our room was amazing over the hills. It was a hot night so we needed to keep the windows open in the bedroom and the bathroom to let the air travel through. The bedroom window was a small and we could have done with a fan. We decided to eat at the local pub the Miners Arms but after our stroll through the village looking at all of the interesting plague plaques we were disappointed to learn that the pub stopped serving food at 8pm. It was only 8.10 :( We are used to pubs serving food a lot later than this in our area so maybe we were a bit naïve there. We drove to a spar shop which was in the next village about 5 mins drive away and had to buy bread and make sandwiches instead of eating out which was a shame. We slept very well, apart from being a bit hot. The bed was lovely and comfortable. I am quite a light sleeper in the mornings though and I did get woken up at 6.15 by the owners going about their business. I also think there was a toilet next to our room as I heard someone going very early through thin walls. We went downstairs at about 9.15 for breakfast after having a shower. The shower was nice but the power did cut off at one point for about ten minutes and I had no water. My boyfriend was told they get a lot of power cuts and this was quite normal. Breakfast was served in a lovely sunny room and was very tasty. The owner was accommodating with our various menu changes. Overall it was a lovely stay and I definitely would recommend staying here if you are an early riser and don't mind driving up steep hills. The only reason we wouldn't come back is we felt a little bit too much as though we were on top of the owners as the house is quite small. (even with our own entrance and hallway)

Response from hotel

Many thanks for a very informative review on Innisfree Cottage. For future customers I would like to clarify a few points made in the review. The Miners Arms generally stop serving food at 9.00 pm. However on occasion they have been known to send the chef home early if they have no customers, which is why I always advice guests to phone ahead and book to avoid this happening. As this was a Monday evening I suspect they were not too busy and this is what happened. There are also several pubs all serving late within a 5-10 minute drive, plus a lovely Indian Restaurant, which will serve until 11.00 pm and the owners have even been know to offer guests a lift home!!

The problem with the shower was not caused by a power cut as first thought but a household fuse which had tripped the main switch. It took a few minutes to realise this and retrieve the power, so once again apologies for the inconvenience.

Innisfree Cottage has its own guest entrance and the owner's accommodation is separated from the guest accommodation by a door marked private.

Sometimes guests require an early breakfast and I cannot remember if this was the case on this occasion but generally I do not enter the dining room to put breakfast items out until 7.50 am in order that guests are not disturbed.

Once again many thanks for some very positive comments and I hope this has clarified a few of the negative comments.
