“Five stars for a 5* experience”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

What a wonderful weekend! The venue is top notch for large groups and I can honestly say that it is pretty much perfect! ( Only one quibble - bath sheets would finish it off instead of bath towels, for complete luxury!) Every single thought has been put into making the weekend grrrrrreat - down to TWO dishwashers, kettles, toasters to ensure everything goes smoothly in the catering dept. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and are most comfortable, and all the bathrooms have excellent large walk in showers. The ground floor room would be excellent for anyone disabled as it has a wet room attached and the bathroom on the first floor is heavenly with a stunning slipper bath and HUGE shower!! There is also a bar with a BAR BILLIARDS table!!! I Haven't played for years but we had great fun! I had a wonderful stay with my extended family and everyone from Herbie (20 months) upwards, thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Thanks to Juliet and Martin Who went to such an effort to make our stay memorable - it certainly exceeded all expectations!

“A Fantastic Venue for your special celebrations”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The house is just fab and Juliet and Martin provide everything you could imagine to make it a wonderful stay. There were 23 of us and we all said how lovely it was - all women, you know how fussy we can be. It's well placed for the restaurants and bars in Matlock Bath - just a 5 minute walk. The place is roomy with 12 bedrooms, sleeping 24. It has the longest sofa in Derby shire (seats 10) and the dining room seats 24. The litchen is well equipped and the utility room has two dishwashers. There are 11 bathrooms and a toilet. Parking for about ten cars plus on street parking for many more. The gardens are lonely with lots of seating for the whole group to gather and drink bubbly as a toast. We loved it. and the beds were dead comfy too.

“A beautiful, luxurious and very well equipped bolthole”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We rented the house for my 40th birthday and had an absolutely amazing time. Both evenings we cooked in the house for 20 guests and without exception, the kitchen had everything we needed and more. The rooms are beautifully well furnished and the addition of an en suite for almost all of the 12 bedrooms makes for a very luxurious place to stay. To say those beds are comfortable is a total understatement! The communal areas are brilliant - particularly the bar area, which provided the centre piece for our knees up on both nights. We simply didn't want to leave - amazing house and I will look for any reason to stay there again!
