“Perfect wedding weekend venue”
Reviewed March 25, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

Quite simply the perfect venue for a relaxed wedding weekend. Friends and family travelled from afar and all arrived late into Friday evening. The Derwent was exceptional in every way not having the restrictions that you may get in a hotel. Children could run around and all parents knowing there would be safe and not causing any damage or annoying other guests if in a hotel. The catering was managed by the Red Olive Catering company based in Derby and we would highly recommend. The interior of the Derwent has been designed to a very high standard and is perfect for a weekend break with a large group of friends. Only complaint was some of the rooms were very cold even though the thermostate was at plus 22 degrees. But apart from that we cannot recommend the Derwent enough. Just very sad the weekend is all over. Huge thanks to the owner Chris and the peak venue team!!

“Fabulous venue for special event for family and friends of all ages!”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Hired this superb 'house' ( it's huge!) via Peak Venues who were great in terms of helpfulness and communication. The event was my husband's 50th birthday and we needed to accommodate 38 people of all ages under one roof, so this venue was perfect!
The rooms are lovely and the bar ( and snooker table) became the focal point for everyone very quickly. It's very spacious with a number of living spaces so noone felt cramped at any time.
Sixteen bedrooms, most with ensuite were fabulous and it was really useful to have fleixbility regarding double and twin options. There are also a number of family rooms perfect for our friends with younger children.
The surrounding area is beautiful and we all went a fantastic walk to Ladybower Reservoir and onto the crags ( via a pub stop) straight from the front door.
Highly recommended>

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just come back from an absolutely superb weekend at The Derwent. Arranged the break for my family and 7 of my old university friends and their families. A brilliant time was had by all. I couldn't recommend The Derwent highly enough. I've never written a review before but feel that the weekend experienced deserves one! Thank you so much for making our reunion perfect!

“fabulous venue”
Reviewed November 10, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I have been arranging holidays for a large number of friends and family for many years and have regularly scoured the internet for suitable venues. I have never previously come across anywhere as good as this.

My party consists of three generations of five families .For us this place works on every level. The bedrooms are well and practically appointed with lots of en suites. The downstairs works wonderfully well as the hub is the bar area which is a real bar. [You have to arrange your own drinks of course but there is an obliging local brewery/drinks company which will fix things up for you] .Off the bar there are two lounges, a huge dining room and a pool room. The whole party can be close to each other while doing different things. There is table football in the bar. There is a well equipped kitchen and a separate area for preparation and two dishwashers etc.

Overall the place has a nice feel. There is plenty of room. Everything works and is accessible. It was nice and warm.

The owner is helpful and accommodating.

It is close to some wonderful scenery.

I would say that this house is unique. Self catering properties which will take this many people are rare and when you add the quality to be found here the house is in a league of its own.

Having found this I think that it is unlikely that will will use anywhere else for this gathering

“Family Celebration Weekend”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from a fantastic fun filled stay at The Derwent with a big family group of 40 to celebrate this year having multiple milestone birthdays and new additions. As a result ages ranged from 3 months right up to 70 with plenty in between and this property was ideal. With a good mix of bed configurations and plenty of ensuites and bathrooms everyone was comfortably accommodated and the decor is bright and modern. We were lucky enough that the weather allowed us to be outside but there are 2 good sized lounges, although behind the bar was a popular spot! The layout of the dining room didn't allow us all to sit at one table as we were led to believe, but in the event it didn't matter. If we had one minor criticism it would be that the kitchen is quite small, especially with several cooks (!) and it would have been good to have the other oven in operation but we managed. It's a well equipped property and we had a weekend that we will all talk about for a long time.

“Fantastic house, enjoyed by all!”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a great house! 40 of us stayed at the derwent celebrating my 50th birthday, 3 generations of my family and friends and we all had a fabulous weekend. The house was done up to a very high standard, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. We enjoyed the pool and table football competition that went on all weekend, the Saturday night BBQ/pub quiz, and the curry takeaway from a great Indian restaurant in hathersage. The house is situated in a pretty village, with great walks from the doorstep and 20 of us hired bikes from nearby derwent water. The weekend was very memorable, everyone is still talking about it 2 weeks later! We hope to go back sometime in the future.

“The perfect venue for a large mixed age party”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

An excellent house: extremely clean, well equipped and roomy. The decor is tasteful and fresh. Lots of different spaces to socialise or relax. The bar area, kitchen and games room were particularly well used by our party whose ages ranged from toddler to those in their 60s. My only criticism is that the website does not fully do justice to the extent and amount of facilities and equipment and as a result we packed things that we found on arrival.
