Whenever we can sneak away for a Peak District visit overnight we often stay here. There is nothing grand about it but always delivers. We like room 12 in a separate building just a few steps from reception. Comfortable for 2. The restaurant is also‘functional’ but the staff are super friendly in reception, evening restaurant and breakfast. The kitchen serves enjoyable (and in my words) straight forward food. Good parking and within easy reach of some great Peak District walking.
The hotel is a hidden gem, tucked away in the countryside, but within easy reach of local attractions. We took our bikes, and could easily access the Tissington Trail and the High Peaks Trail from the hotel. It was a pleasant surprise to have a bottle of beer and Prosecco in the fridge on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the members of staff. We ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel. All meals wonderful. An extra treat was having a packed lunch provided each day. What a wonderful idea. We will definitely be returning here.
We found ourselves walking through the driving snow to the Hotel, having abandoned our journey to Derby on the A515. We had not booked to stay, but were welcomed warmly by Andy the manager, who sorted us out quickly and was very flexible with us, as we had no idea how long we would be staying, due to the weather conditions. We were relaxed very quickly and made to feel at home with complementary Prosecco and Beer, which were a real tasty treat. The staff were under pressure due to tje weather conditions and the impact on guest, staff and pending bookings, but it did not show, as all request were dealt with, with a smile. The location is very rural, historical, picturesque and quite accessible even in the deep driving snow. The grounds encourage a multitude of birds and are full of interesting artifacts befitting a property which dates back to 1672. The food is of a high quality without being to Gastro and they have a fine selection of local beers, wines and spirits, which includes gift packs. I hope that we get an opportunity to visit this hotel again in the future as it is a real find and we strongly recommend it to all.…
This visit, our 6th stay there, was to celebrate my birthday and my partner’s 60th birthday, so I pushed the boat out and booked Room 1, the master suite, for two nights. As always, it was a very special stay - the surroundings, old fashioned comforting ambience and wonderful staff. The room is beautiful (spoilt only by the cheap duvet), the candlelit bathroom gorgeous, and the food very good. The only downsides are: price (I paid full whack plus a couple of supplements), lack of proper decaf coffee, awful sliced bread at breakfast, early dinner timings, and lack of a treat for my partner on his birthday - especially as we had to cancel our original planned celebration in the Caribbean with friends due to my cancer diagnosis. The lovely glass conservatory is a fabulous, warm place to dine whilst watching the wildlife. Missed the geese this time! Thank you to the friendly, efficient people who work there. We hope to return later in the year, all being well.…
We had a wonderful time again on our latest visit, three of us in a great two room set up. Everyone is very friendly and we had a great laugh. The circular walk down to the river through Biggin Dale and back via the Tissington Trail is nightly recommended, six miles. Or walk to Ashbourne and get the bus back. The food is outstandingly good. Thank you!
A beautiful, peaceful location in the heart of the Peak District. The staffing is second to none, the warmest of welcomes greets you and the superbly efficient bar and restaurant staff, quickly make you feel at ease. Special touches like a bottle of beer and prosecco in the room fridge together with a jug of fresh milk was most appreciated. Dinner was delicious and breakfast was superb, all served in a modern smart dining room and conservatory. Dogs are welcome in the bedrooms and grounds. If you are looking for a base to walk in the Peak District, then this is the place for you - charming and unpretentious. They even send you off with a delightful packed lunch - all included in the very reasonable price that you pay for the room. We will be back.
Everything about this place is wonderful - the antique furniture, open fire, fantastic food and friendly service, the beautiful garden. Fabulous local walks and a real bonus to get a packed lunch too!
After a 3 year Covid csused gap it was lovely for us to be back at Biggin Hall to meet uo with my sister. The weather was wet cold and windy but the hotel was cozy and beautiful landscape on the doorstep. We enjoyed the food. And the staff were all especially pleasant and helpful - even lending me a phone charger when I lost mine. A very pleasant and good value stay!
Our fifth stay at Biggin Hall. And most certainly not our last! We love our visits. Wonderful rooms with complimentary drinks, fresh milk, a great choice of teas, coffees and hot chocolate. Fabulous bathrooms. And the warmest welcome from all the fantastic staff. Bamber, our dog, loves staying at Biggin Hall. He is spoiled rotten by Andy! Our evening meal was, as always, perfect and delicious. Adam served us throughout the evening, looking after us so well, and keeping us entertained. Service second to none. This is what we enjoy about Biggin Hall. Being looked after by people who care and have personality and character - just like the hotel! We loved relaxing in front of the log fire in the lounge. Biggin Hall is a home from home and a wonderful sanctuary. I never want to leave! It weaves its magic every time we visit.…
Nice old building in the small village of Biggin right in the Peak District, so great for walkers. Room was spacious in one of the out buildings. There were some really nice touches like a drink in the mini bar on arrival and packed lunches provided at no extra cost. From overheard conversations it sounded like the hotel has many returners and you can see why. The set menu dinner was ok, interesting choices and it arrived very quickly, the downside of which was that it was mostly pre-cooked and I found the meat a bit overcooked. The meal felt rather rushed too because of this. Overall though the hotel was buzzing in a wet November and caters very well for those who want a warm base in the area.
