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.


“Absolute perfection”

I stayed here on the 19.01.2014 as a quiet getaway for me and my partner. 

From the moment i arrived (and stupidly couldnt find my way in, Joan rescued me) to the moment i left i was amazed by the whole experience.

We stayed at Dannah Farm for 2 nights from 24th November to relax after our wedding. What an amazing place, we stayed in the Granary Suite which is fabulous, especially the private hot tub.

“That special touch”

Stayed at Dannah Farm in june 2012 and had an amazing time. We had a lovely suite and also made good use of the private spa for the day, which was a very special touch.

“An unusual but peaceful stay”

I have to say when I arrived at Dannah I was a bit taken aback at the exterior. This was one of the most expensive places I have ever stayed but I did enjoy it. The room was huge but felt smaller give the clutter of furniture but that seemed part of its charm. Then there was a dressing room and an enormous bathroom. The bed was so comfortable, I just slept so well and the spa bath helped, I enjoyed the every night.

“Superb B & B , luxurious, and lovely but not snobby.”

 This is the 3rd stay here for us, we really enjoy spoiling ourselves for a few days and have found Dannah to be the perfect escape from the day to day grind of work, kid etc , we have stayed in the garden room which was faultless, but have now started to really enjoy the Red room which is where I am sat now , jealous much ?

“Stunning, you get what you pay for”

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.

We have stayed here so many times since 2001 we have lost count but unfortunately other commitments don't allow us to visit as often as we would like! We have just returned from two nights in the Granary and one night in the Ecclesbourne. As always the welcome was very warm from Joan, Martin, all the staff and all the animals too!
