Underleigh House Bed & Breakfast
Tucked away on a private lane amidst glorious Peak District scenery, Underleigh House is an award winning Bed and Breakfast of exceptional quality.
This former cottage and barn, dating from 1873, has been tastefully converted. There are five bedrooms - with en-suite WC and either shower or bath - and a large comfortable lounge where guests can relax with a drink after a day out walking.
Underleigh has the top rating for guesthouse accommodation with the prestigious AA and ETC '5 star' status and Gold Award. Underleigh won the Best Bed and Breakfast award at the East Midlands Enjoy Excellence Awards in 2006 and 2009, and was a finalist and Silver winner in the 2010 National Enjoy England Excellence Awards. Holding both the AA and VisitBritain Breakfast Awards, we were also a finalist in the AA's 2009 'Friendliest Landlady' category.
Evening meals are not available at Underleigh but numerous eating places in Hope, Castleton and Hathersage can be recommended.
All rooms have superb views over the surrounding countryside or over the garden which, in summer, abounds with colourful tubs, hanging baskets, roses and fuschias.
Underleigh is set in a quiet location off the road to Edale, about 1 mile from Hope's historic village centre. Nestling under Losehill, it is in the heart of the Peak National Park.
It is easily accessible to the area's major attractions including the show caverns and village of Castleton and the stately homes and manor houses of Chatsworth, Eyam, Haddon and Hardwick.
Breakfast is served in 'house party' style around the oak refectory table in the charming beamed and stone flagged dining room. On offer is a hearty English breakfast or a wide choice of alternatives for the smaller appetite or vegetarians. Underleigh won Derbyshire Foods 'Best Breakfast Award' in 2004 and holds both the AA and Visit Britain breakfast awards.
All bedrooms, thoughtfully decorated and equipped, are en-suite with either shower or bath. They also have colour television, tea and coffee making facilities, radio alarm clock, hairdryer and many other extras to enhance your stay.
As requested by so many of our regular guests, we are a fully non-smoking establishment. Every room has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside or over our delightful garden.
