Guest Book

We have been offering accommodation to guests since 1986 – a lifetime – and the hardest lesson we have had to learn is that it is simply not possible to please everyone all the time, or indeed have a fully functioning Dannah Farm perfect at all times on every occasion. Most of our wonderful guests know this and generously forgive our lapses! We really, genuinely, do try our very best to please and hopefully are able to give our guests a wonderful stay with memories to cherish.
Reviews are both terrific and terrifying at the same time! It’s a heart stopping moment when we see a new review has been published – did they like us – were we helpful/friendly/in the middle of a domestic???? Then - having made the decision to put reviews on our own website – should we just put on the good ones – include the not so good – banish the awful?? The decision is taken – we will go for “the good, the bad and the ugly” and let our guests – past, present and future decide for themselves!!!!
We have decided not to reply to individual reviews, believing it could be perceived as confrontational, of course we read them all, and really do welcome your thoughts, taking  notice of all the points you raise – good and bad! (For some of the issues which raise their head from time to time, e.g., charges for corkage an explanation can be found on our FAQ's page).
And finally, a heartfelt thank you to those who take the time and trouble to tell us what a lovely time they had, along with a genuine apology to those for whom the experience was not all they would have hoped for.


“Stunning, you get what you pay for”

What our guests have to say >>

I booked a one night stay here for my boyfriends 25th birthday from 22/09-23/09 in the Ecclesbourne suite (it is far more than a room.)
Although many reviews are claiming this beautiful guesthouse is over priced I disagree! You get exactly what you pay for. I have lived in the south for a few years (Derbyshire born and bred) and I have to say finding somewhere of this standard for this price would be impossible.

The staff were just lovely and we thought the girl who showed us to our room and bought us tea and WARM scones and biscuits was just adorable!!
It is extremely tasteful and unique and is decorated really sympathetically to the character of the farm. I just couldn't believe it. All my requests were met without any problems. Rose petals and champagne on ice waiting in our room when we arrived. It was perfect.

The location is amazing. It is so silent and at 4.30am when I popped out for a ciggie the cats kept me company and the stars were just incredible!! They even had the cutest pigs!

The supper platter included everything and more plus a dessert. The bed was so comfortable we only got out to use our sauna or the jacuzzi bath.

The breakfast was delicious and they had EVERYTHING you could imagine. The home baked bread was a lovely touch and everything was cooked perfectly. Service was friendly and prompt and you were left to your own devices.

Celebrating a birthday here was the best decision... it was a very welcome break and we will be returning!! The best place I have ever stayed and the first bed and breakfast I have been to. It has set the bar extremely high for anywhere else now!
I could go on forever!!!!!

Thank you to Martin and Joan for sharing your home with us members of the public!! The live and time you have put into your business is obvious as soon as you pull into the car park. Thank you for helping me spoil my boyfriend rotten! Five stars is not enough!!!!!! xxx
