An excellent time in a beautiful, very well equipped and private house, a bit quirky, and great fun. Well placed for exploring and good facilities on site. We were a group of old friends - thoroughly recommended.

The Manor House is an experience in itself, with fabulous wooden panelling, beams, creaky doors and stairs - it really wow’d us. Huge kitchen, modern appliances, stone floors. The downstairs bedroom is accessed via stone steps which some folk may find difficult to navigate, also found it a little tricky getting on to the high bed. Lolly and the housekeeping team are really helpful. A very beautiful and convenient location set midway between Chatsworth and Bakewell.

Only fault was kitchen diner was cold even with heating on. Scheduled 10.00 departure is far too early but happily was extended to 12.00. This was a huge relief.
