Great Location Near The Peak District National Park
The Laurels B&B is just a short walk from a friendly village pub. We also have several pubs and restaurants within a short drive. These are perfect for an evening meal, or just enjoying a leisurely drink after a long day.
Our rural location means you can sit outside of an afternoon and enjoy views across the village, enjoy the garden birds feeding close by or, if you’re really lucky spot one of the small deer in the woods behind us.
Why not take a stroll down The Churnet Valley to The Ramblers Retreat, a lovely tea room set in the woods of Dimmingsdale. We’re also surrounded by miles of walking trails, geocaches and cycle paths.
