“Had a great weekend. House was perfect and the kids absolutely loved the garden and grounds. Thank you!”

“Wonderful house and surrounding area and walks. Recommended walk to Mam Tor, great views from the top, we went to Blue John and Speedwell caves, we could have done all 4 but not in one day. Chatsworth for one day, if you go to Bakewell, get the tart from ‘Bloomers’only and enjoy it as much as we did. Happy Easter you may find there are still some eggs in the garden!”

The Johnson Family – 01/04/16 – 07/04/16

“We were well received by the owner Simon. We couldn’t have wanted any better for our Family Birthday celebration weekend. The house was easy to travel to from North and South and 11 adults and 5 children were easily accommodated in this splendid and extensive property. It had all we needed and more. For us a real winner was being able to get round the large dining table in comfort, which we comfortably did. For the day time there is so much on the doorstep we went to Poole Cavern and Buxton Country Park where there was a great restaurant and walks for all abilities including a romp up to Solomons Temple.The weather was dry and cold but this was an ideal place to visit even if raining. We all had a excellent Sunday roast across the road at the Devonshire Arms where we were easily accommodated and looked after. If the occasion arises we will certainly return.
Great place for a family gathering Thank you.”
