Derbyshire has been a part of our lives since our childhood, when we used to have family trips to Dovedale, climbing over the stepping stones, walks in the Derbyshire Hills ending with a delicious local pub lunch. We continued the tradition with our 2 daughters and brought our girls up to enjoy this beautiful and scenic part of the country.
Our dream has always been to run a Bed & Breakfast, and after 30 years in the building trade and living in a small village on the outskirts of Leicestershire, we made the decision to make the move and achieve our dream. Our 2 daughters had left home and now was the time for a new adventure!
Living in a village with a good village life and community allowed us to be a part of the activities, as well as being on the committee's we also helped set up and run a 'Sunday Sizzle,' allowing the villagers and their families to enjoy a cooked breakfast on a Sunday morning whilst reading their daily newspaper. It was very popular as you can imagine and kept us all on our toes! This inspired us to run our own Bed & Breakfast.
We moved into the Gables in March 2012, and since then have worked hard with the help of close friends and family to renovate the property into a home with a modern look but traditional welcoming feel which we can share with others and hope that they enjoy the house as much as we do.
We very much hope you enjoy your stay with us and we would really appreciate any feedback.

The Delicious Breakfasts
At the Gables we offer a range of breakfast options to suit every person's needs using the best locally sourced produce.
Breakfast is served in the Dining Room from 8.30-9.30am; where we will take your order, giving you chance to relax with a fresh pot of brewed tea or cafetiere coffee and the daily newspaper or to give you time to plan your day ahead, whilst we freshly prepare your chosen breakfast menu for you. An earlier breakfast can be prepared if advance notice is given.
Our menus will be available within your welcome pack in your bedroom so please do take a few minutes to have a look through this and if there are any special requirements, please do let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
The menu ranges from the lighter dishes of continental with freshly baked croissants and toast served with a selection of local preserves and a choice of fruit juices or our typical traditional breakfast consists of local free range eggs, hand-made sausages, cured bacon etc. Throughout breakfast there will be cereals, yoghurt and fruit compote available. Vegetarian breakfasts are also accommodated for and are locally sourced.
