Likes:
Friendly landlady and good size room - good value for single occupancy
Dislikes:
The only negative point is that the B&B is on a v busy road popular with bikers and so is noisy in the evening and morning if you have the window open.

Likes:
The proprietors, Julie and John, were first class hosts. The room was excellent with large screen TV and s superking size bed. The fully tiled bathroom with bath and shower was modern and immaculate.
Dislikes:
There is an element of traffic noise early in the morning, though it is barely audible through the double glazed windows.

"Excellent 8-day holiday stay"
We booked up only 3 days beforehand for an 8-day holiday in the Peak District. As it happens the weather was really sunny and we had some superb walks locally and up to 15-20 miles away.

The accommodation is an 18th century family house originally built by some wealthy landowner, it has visible wooden beams throughout and has been superbly refurbished. None of it is grotty with age, but all of it has character. Read less
Likes:
We had WONDERFUL breakfasts each day which set us up for the day, the proprietor was VERY helpful and friendly, the room was very clean - nothing can be faulted.
Dislikes:
A slight disadvantage is that the accommodation is approx 1 mile from the nearest pub for an evening meal. We found a great pub in Cromford (the Boat Inn), it was good to walk our meal down afterwards
Response from Pig of Lead:
Hi glad you got back home safely and glad you enjoyed your stay.

Good breakfast. Excellent bathroom.
Dislikes:
Too much noise and too much light in room.
Response from Pig of Lead:
If morning light was an issue why not mention it at the time.Would have been more than happy to try to rectify it for you.We have slept in all our rooms and have not found this a problem. Yes we are on a main road but we have double glazing and very comfortable beds which the majority of our guests seem to like.I'm sorry you didnt enjoy your stay but this was not the impression you gave on departure.

Overall rating: 4.8 out of 5
 We stayed at the Pig of Lead for 4 nights. Breakfast was great. Our room was fantastic. The couple who owned the Pig were wonderful and we felt as if we had known them for years. It was a rather wet stay as the weather was horrendous but we made the most of it. Went to see our granddaughter, her partner and our great grandson. We had Sunday lunch locally and then went to Matlock bath for the illuminations. All in all we had a good time despite the weather.
