Thank you Elaine and John for your warm welcome and your useful advices. The rooms and house are very nice in a pleasant and quiet countryside. The continental breakfast with British specialties was excellent. There are several pubs and food places in the close area. Beautiful garden and friendly pets. This location is also very convenient (10-15 min from highways and 30 min from East Midland airport). We recommend without any restriction.
Elaine and John are amazing, kind and friendly hosts! Their well appointed B&B is beautiful and spotless, and extra special touches abound. Their dog and two cats are so cute and charming, and very well mannered! We had everything we needed and more, and we felt at home immediately. We'd recommend Rookery Nook to all.
Elaine and John were absolutely fantastic, we had a wonderful stay, the place was very beautiful, exceptionally clean, delicious breakfast, and the best thing - the hosts. I cannot rate Rookery Nook highly enough! Thank you Elaine and John

We (my parents and friend) stayed with Elaine for two nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and private. We enjoyed visiting with Elaine and her husband and the wonderful advice of places to visit in the area. Breakfast was delicious and we even ate fresh berries from her garden! I would highly recommend staying at Rookery Nook, we hope our travels take us there again!

A wonderful B&B in impeccable condition. Elaine is a fantastic host and provides a great breakfast and other welcoming goodies.

The B&B is close to a really good food orientated pub for evening meals.
A great choice if you are visiting this area !!

We only had a quick fleeting visit as we were visiting family in the area so just needed a bed for the night but Elaine was accommodating and friendly, the house was homely and beautifully decorated, comfortable and welcoming. Refreshments were available in the kitchen and the choice for Breakfast was great. Would definitely stay again.


Only one night but Elaine and John were very hospitable . Lovely gardens to wander around, comfy bed and great breakfast. Very enjoyable break in a journey.

We had a great time at Elaine's. She was very welcoming and she made us vegan raspberry biscuits when we arrived! Her home and the room were perfect our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

The breakfast she served was also perfect and she went out of her way to accommodate our needs, she was a perfect host and would recommend her's and John's Rookery Nook to anyone needing to stay near Derby or Nottingham.

A lovely place with lovely hosts. You will find this a welcoming and most helpful environment. Both Elaine and John went out of their way to help us with places to eat, local sites to visit and trip advice all provided with great interest in us as guests and individuals. If you let them know your interests they will help you customize a delightful experience.
