20 of us stayed at the Lodge 2nd and 3rd October 2015 to celebrate my partners 50th birthday. The house was a perfect venue with just about everything you needed for a large group.The kitchen was very well equipped and all towels and bedding etc are provided. We especially liked the Karaoke machine!! The house was very clean and tidy throughout.
The location was lovely with great views. There is a pub about 5 mins walk away which was also handy. We hired caterers in on the Saturday night for a 3 course meal which was a great touch and we highly recommend that Company too cookingforevents.com.
We definitely recommend Quarnford lodge as an excellent venue/ party house for a large group.
We have just celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our family at Quarnford Lodge - 18 of us, 11 adults and 7 children. It was perfect. Lovely comfortable bedrooms all en suite, plenty of hot water and heating, very well-equipped kitchen with big American-style fridge freezer and 2 dishwashers (in constant use throughout our weekend). Huge dining area and 2 comfortable adjoining lounges. The barbecue area with gravel and paving and a big barbecue and picnic tables was ideal for us on a lovely sunny weekend. Lovely countryside for walks and cycle hire and plenty of places to visit - Eyam with its Jacobean Manor house and lovely Church was a good visit. Great meal at the Knight's table a few minutes walk away, and also a little shop and cafe just up the road. Would defnitely book again.
A large group of us stayed at Quarnford Lodge for a long weekend in July. We were really impressed with the house. It was equipped brilliantly for such a large group with plenty of space and seating in the living areas. It was an added bonus that all bedrooms had an ensuite (all which were spotless). I would definitely return to Quarnford Lodge, and would recommend.
Beautiful Location in the Peak District, just 10 mins from Buxton. The House was great with en-suite bathrooms with all the rooms and spacious communal spaces. The Kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cutlery and dishes, so its great for group meals. The only downsides were some of the bedrooms were a little tight with having double beds and bunk beds in them, and the wifi signal wasn't great especially when you have up to 25 people trying to access it. Great location with Chatsworth, Bakewell and Buxton just nearby, and for anyone wanting adventure Go Ape was just down the road. I would definitely recommend this place for groups of friends or family.
Stayed here for the weekend with 27 friends for our joint stag/hen party. Fantastic house set in the beautiful Peak District. Six minutes from the local pub and shop (open 7 days a week) and 4 miles from Buxton. Management have it set up excellently with everything you could need for a large group weekend away. Excellent website for indoor and outdoor ideas. Wouldn't change anything!
We rented this house for a family get together of 13 adults, 6 teenagers and 9 young children and it was perfect. Their was plenty of space for the children (who really loved the 'castle garden' outside, the huge dining room meant we could all eat together, the kitchen was well equipped and a great space to produce meals in. There were ample sofas to relax and the pool table was a huge hit. The rooms are clean, comfy and well appointed. The location is great too and we had lots of lovely walks plus visits to Chatsworth House and the Blue John Mines.
Would highly recommend.
Our self catering party of 20 stayed in April 2015. What we liked was 10 double or twin rooms all under 1 roof, large baronial style dining room with log burner. Ample sofas and couches for lounging. Large kitchen fully fitted out with modern appliances and lots of utensils. Good heating and lighting. Good off road parking. And only 10 minutes into picturesque Buxton.
