A Poem - written by one of our guests.

A Special Derbyshire B&B      By Anne Smith

EDELWEISS is a beautiful house

in Stanton in the Peak,

This lovely bed and breakfast house

Owned by Ian and Jill Avent,

Is where we stayed quite recently

And it was time well spent.

Jill’s father built this lovely place

When she was only eight,

Now over thirty years have passed

And much has changed of late.

Every part is modernised

And lovingly restored

With smart furnishings and fittings

And fabulous oak doors.

It was strange to see the bedrooms

Below the flight of stairs

And bathrooms, so exquisite

Which are fit for millionaires.

The rooms are very airy

The beds are really great

All guests are warmly welcomed

And everything’s first rate.

The gardens are quite spacious,

Jill loves her garden so,

She clearly has green fingers

And likes to see things grow.

Ian plays golf quite frequently

But he’d love to be cutting the grass,

So one day he’ll buy a new mower

And that would be just first class!

Sam, the dog makes you welcome

He fusses every guest,

But just one word from Jill, his boss

And he sits on his mat for a rest.

With magnificent views from the windows

One can see right over the Peak,

Sights spectacular, awesome and grand

Make this Derbyshire Peak so unique.

So thank you Jill and Ian

For a memorable stay,

We’ll recommend your B&B

Please remember Anne and Ray!!!

Sam - the Dog!

Stanton Verses

There is a nice couple called Ian and Jill,

Who have B and B in Stanton up a steep hill.

To stay there is really good, quiet and stlll,

And you leave paying a very reasonable bill!

Ian, clever chap, recognised my birth place by my voice.

I am a proud Bristolian, yes, that’s what I be.

I may not speak proper but that be my choice.

But now living in Oxford, I can talk posh, like OUP.

I cannot compete with Anne Smith the poet

On the web-site of Stanton in Peak B and B.

But I too am a poet, though no one here knows it,

Writing verse at night and sometimes after tea.

I, too, have stayed several days at Eidel Weiss,

German I do not know, so it is ‘Idle Vice’, to me

But in this upright establishment, there is no vice.

At least nothing I could see.

If you are horrified by this verse,

The WI, U3A and my family and friends

Will tell you that I can write much worse!
