    Excellent accommodation and excellent location. Only two gripes: 1. We did not find the room thermostat until rung back on our penultimate day. 2. We found the lighting inadequate to read in the sitting room and some bedrooms Thank you

    Lovely holiday and great to catch up with old friends. The holiday was marred with the breaking of a vase by a child which was left at window seal height in the stair well. The owners wanted to charge us £250. Fortuitously, we had a picture of the vase and could demonstrate that a brand new replacement could easily be sought on the internet between £20-90. We did this from a dealer in Mayfair in London and in my opinion, it was better than the original. I think in future we will go for properties that are more plain and functional....especially as this was big party with children. we didnt use the hot tub for fear of damaging it in some way. The property manager (Lolly) was nice however.

    Lovely location but a few things let the house down. Only one light in a large and dark living room to the extent that it's not possible to read when natural light fades, living room furniture not very comfortable and not in keeping with the house, huge kitchen but not a single cupboard to put food in. The rest of the house was good but the living room in particular let it down to the extent that I would not return.

    The whole family had a very relaxed, happy and enjoyable holiday at the Manor House. The house was all we could wish for in comfort and convenience set in wonderful coutryside. The games room kept the men happy for hours while the ladies used the pool and hot tub, bliss. With lovely little pubs, beautiful walks and areas to cycle within easy reach, definitely worth recommending.

    A marvellous situation assisted by very good weather. Well placed for many of the best Dervyshire sights. The swimming pool and hot tub were much used and fully appreciated/

    Thy This is an expensive let but one worthy of a special occasion. Arrangements with housekeeper etc were faultless. Once we'd saved up!! we would love to return.
