Quaint cottage stay with fabulous breakfast

We stayed one night as we attended friends' wedding at Calke Abbey, just up the road. The Stables was well equipped, heaters and radiators were more than adequate to maintain a comfortable temperature. Lovely comfy bed, clean bathroom, amazing full English breakfast delivered to the table in the morning! Thank you. Read more

Janet Mature couple Stayed: Aug 13

Amazing accomodation with excellent hosts and value for money

Had a brilliant time at the Stables; bed and breakfast with a difference as it was like staying in a self contained unit with a kitchen area but breakfast was brought in. The bed was really comfortable, there was everything you needed and in the kitchen there was as much tea, coffee and sugar as you wanted. We had a very warm welcome on arrival and the hosts provided us with a bottle of wine as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary which we thought was a lovely gesture. Read more

The Stables was in an ideal location for walks and places of interest and within walking distance to a nice pub with excellent food. Loved the accomodation and the delicious breakfast!

The Stables was a great place to relax and unwind.

Overnight stay before a local event next day in Burton. Found the village store in Ticknall straight away, (the owners run the Stables which is next door). Off road parking was good. Read more

It was very clean and comfortable, the small kitchen meant we could cater for ourselves without having to go out in the rain. Had the weather been good we might have gone to one of the local pubs.

Location. Bed was comfortable
Dislikes?
Accomodation was rather tired and dated - in need of decoration and generally updating. The second bedroom was way too tiny to move about in.

awfuly disappointing

Stay was double booked. We checked in and settled into our rooms to then be advised that the room had been double booked and we were asked to leave. We tried to work through this to no avail. Owner advised us that internet had been down the day before so she couldnt block the room. we found this unacceptable as the room could have been blocked that morning or previously as the other people had booked well in advance. Alternative accomodation was arranged for us at an inn, noisy smelly below par Read more

Likes?
Didnt happen so nothing, due to time of day and holiday committments we had litle choice but to accept alternative accommodation.
Dislikes?
Lady had no ability to troubleshoot and manage the situation.

Malika Young couple Stayed: Mar 12

Great Location, Great Hospitality, Great Focus on Every Need

We hired the local village hall for our joint birthday parties. The location was ideal and after the staff didn't turn up to help we had to work ourselves, so coming back to a little haven was great. The accommodation is of a very high standard for a little village and the cost included a great breakfast, that was brought to our room. Everything has been thought of, so many toiletries in the bath room, clean stack of towels, orange juice and real milk (no silly cartons) in the fridge. Read more

Great place to stay - helpful owners

We were in the area to watch my son's team racing at Donnington and at the last minute he was able to stay at the Stables with us - this proved no problem with the owners who provided a comfortable put you up bed, and when we could not give an exact time for arrival they made arrangements so we could get in whenever we arrived. Accommodation was only a 15 minute drive away - and was compact but had everything we needed and more! Read more

Description

The Stables is a small family owned Bed & Breakfast run by Debby and Martin Pezzack within the village of Ticknall, Derbyshire. Martin and Debby took over the premises in August 2006 along with the village store. The Main Accommodation Consists of a spacious, tastefully decorated two bedroom self contained apartment with private kitchen and bathroom facilities. It’s size and amenities make it the ideal base for a small family holiday or business people working in the vicinity. Privacy and freedom are assured as the apartment is separate from the main house. Off street parking is also available. Tichnall is a small but picturesque village close to Melbourne and Calke Abbey. Built between the years 1701/03, Calke Abbey is a fine baroque mansion that has undergone very little restoration and is surrounded by wonderful parkland. The village contains a lock-up that was still used in the early part of the twentieth century, and the remains of the Church of St Thomas a Beckett on the site of the Church of St George, which was erected to cover the growth in population in the area in 1831.
