Great stay in lovely, family-run guest house
We had a lovely stay at The Family Tree. It is a small family-run guest house with guest bedrooms in an annexe overlooking the courtyard. We stayed in The Oak Room which had a sofa-bed suitable for our 8-year old son; the three of us were very comfortable. The breakfast was something else! It is served in the cafe in the main house and the fact that it is popular with locals speaks for itself with quite a number of non-guests ordering breakfast when we were there. We were brought a tray with yoghurt, berries, cereals etc while our cooked breakfast order was taken. The breakfast was delicious and we didn't need any lunch! We stayed 2 nights and it is a great base from which to explore Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock. The family who run The Family Tree are so welcoming and friendly. We noticed a plaque in the breakfast room for being the guest house being winners of the Channel 4 TV program Four in a Bed and it was entertaining watching the episodes that featured The Family Tree on catch-up TV when we got home.
