As a 20+ family it's not easy to find the perfect large house for our annual weekend break but Quarnford Lodge fits the bill nicely. It meets our main criteria - plenty of room to dine together, uniformly decent bedrooms with en-suite so no-one feels they've drawn the short straw, plenty of comfy seating, a well-equipped kitchen, effective central heating and a pub just down the road! Plus glorious views with plenty of good walking. Used catering on the Saturday night and can highly recommend The Cafe at the Green Pavilion in Buxton who delivered delicious food to our door. We all had a lovely time!

“An amazing large holiday home”

We were a party of 13, ranging in age from mid fifties to mid eighties, from our church. The property was ideal for us with all bedrooms ensuite and with comfortable beds, a large well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable living and dining space. What more could you ask for?
We had a wonderful time and everything was made easy for us by the friendly and helpful owners.

What a property, awesome location. 26 of us got together for an family holiday. With 7 kids we needed lots of space and that's what we got at Quarnford lodge. With that many mouths to feed the kitchen perfect for cooking that amount of food and 2 dishwashers really helped with the cleaning up. The location is awesome, remote enough to feel very special but 10 mins for town and super markets etc. Communication from the owners from enquiring through booking and departure has been wonderful. Arranging a break for that many people obviously throws up questions and these were answered really quickly via email.

Just a shame the weather wasn't a bit better but that's the British summer for you.

Thanks again.

“Amazing Lodge, Amazing Location, Amazing Customer Service”

If I could give Quarnford lodge a 10 it would be justified. I could not recommend the entire experience enough.
The customer service from Peter, Marie and Mark was second to none. Friendly and informative.
The house is amazing, plenty of space and a dining room to rival a manor! The facilities are brilliant, we couldn't have asked for more. A bathroom per room is a real plus. The back garden made for a great BBQ/Hawaiian party night.
The lodge is well equipped with all the basics + great technology and games including a pool and ping pong table.
It's close enough to Buxton for convenience but far enough away to give the feeling of solitude. There are some fantastic activities and sights nearby as well as some great walks.
We used the venue to get the whole family together for the week. It was perfect.
I need to make up another reason to get everyone together just so we can return.
VALUE FOR MONEY is an understatement.
Thank you so much for sharing this gem, can't wait to return.

Booked quarnford for my sister's hen do, super location set in beautiful surrounds. The facilities were spot on for catering for a large group... Everything you could need in the kitchen plus 2 dishwashers were very handy for the size of the group. The main dining room/lounge was perfect... We had outside caterers to the venue Saturday then turned the dining room into a dance floor after! Would love to go back, such a great place for a big get together!!!!

“Crackin' weekend”

Visited Quarnford Lodge with a large group of friends. There were 20 of us, including 7 children, and we had a great weekend with lots of fun and laughter (aided in part by the karaoke machine!). The accommodation is very well presented and was just perfect for us. The kids said it was the best hide and seek house ever! The fact that every room has its own bathroom meant that we still had an element of privacy despite the size of the group. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and a good size for cooking for so many people. The owners seem really nice and accommodated all our needs. Every member of the group is looking forward to our next visit! Thank you :-)
