We stayed at the beautiful Quarnford Lodge for my hen weekend - and what a weekend it was!! Everything was perfect - the house is spacious and light, with plenty of room for everyone to get together and/or have some peace and quiet. The kitchen was well-equipped and all facilities of a very high standard. Beds were comfy and en-suites clean and modern. Personally I stayed in Room 10 which was fab apart from being slightly too warm? The dining-room and dramatic staircase were stunning and made the wknd for me. I would absolutely come back - I'm currently trying to think of another excuse to go away for the wknd with some friends!! Fantastic :-)
Just got back from Quarnford Lodge last weekend. There were 10 couples in total and we all had a great time. Close to Chatsworth house and Bakewell meaning its a great location especially as there is a great pub about 700 yards down the road. The house is well equipped, clean and tidy. Contrary to previous comments we were not affected by any traffic noise from nearby road and we slept in the front. We got outside caterers for the Saturday evening meal (recommended by the owners) which meant we could all relax and enjoy ourselves.
Stayed here with 25 of my members of family for my 30th birthday celebrations. The place was clean, tidy, roomy and having an en-suite in each room was great for everyone to have their own space. It has beautiful views and there is no noise from the surrounding area.
We were a group of about two dozen friends (mostly couples, now retired) from university who hold an annual reunion, and Quarnford proved to be ideal for the purpose. It is very well-located, with lots to do in the area whether you like walking or visiting places. The house has lots of bedrooms to suit all types and mixes of large parties, with very large communal spaces eg dining room and sitting rooms, and an excellent large and well-equipped kitchen that was well-suited to catering for large groups. Everything was as described on the website.
We would certainly think about using Quarnford in future, if we hold our reunion in the area.
Clean, well kept and amazing space for our reunion week. The owners and housekeepers were helpful and available if we needed them. The children (ages 4 months to 18 years) loved the space and the setting is breath taking. Highly recommend this wonderful space, it was clean, well stocked and we also had the perfect weather.
