“Wonderful memories from a magical weekend”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in Portland House in Sept 2015 as a group of 10 adults and 13 children ranging from 1 to 13 years old. We were there to celebrate a 40th birthday, as well as 2 8th birthdays and we all had a magical time.

The house was set up brilliantly to accommodate for our wide ranging requirements and we made extensive use of the very large communal areas to make sure that everyone was entertained throughout.

The kitchen is superb and the bar a real bonus, we spent hours in there chatting, listening to music and teaching ourselves how to play bar billiards !

On the Sat night we had Charlie from The Private Chef Company come and cook us a 5 course meal with wine and it was absolutely amazing, real Michelin star quality food and that was our highlight. IT made the evening a special one and we will not forget that for a long time.

Juliet was fantastic sorting everything out for us. Cant recommend this venue highly enough, just don't tell too many people as we would like to go back again !!

“Fantastically amazing hen party”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My hens arranged for me a surprise hen party at Portland house.
I couldn't have wished for anywhere better, the rooms are all fantastic and the bathrooms are all gorgeous. We all had fabulously comfortable beds and there was more than enough space for all 24 of us.
Then to downstairs. Oh my word, I felt like a millionaire for the weekend!!!! The kitchen is fantastic with everything you could possibly need (two dishwashers are essential) the dining room was great with loads of room and the sitting room had enough seats for us all to be in there together...... and then you have your own bar/nightclub!!!!!! AMAZING we had our own music pumped through the house and we had a full bar. We all took turns in playing barmaid which was half of the fun... the only thing is you have no closing time and your own measures, not so fun the next day!!!!!! (no sympathy)
The house is literally a 5 minute walk into the village which has lots of lovely pubs, bars, cafe's and restaurants and we walked to the heights of abraham (about 10 min stroll)

I couldn't have wished for a better venue to celebrate my hen.

Thanks so much Juliet and portland house

We will be back xxx

“EPIC STEN”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wow!! What a place to host a party. We had a fantastic time and during the lead up to the stay we had some great recommendations for where to eat and activities to do. As a big group finding somewhere that had an outdoor space, a big kitchen and dining area and enough bathrooms and beds was a real challenge. Portland House completely surpassed our expectations!! 5* quality it is indeed. We LOVED the bar and the outside area is perfect for having a BBQ in the evening to relaxing the following morning! I can't recommended it enough and look forward to staying here again in the future!! Many thanks, Juliet!

“Beyond 5-star - perfect house!”
Reviewed July 2, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked Portland House for my best friends pre-wedding celebrations - 20 of us in total with ages from 20-something to 60-something.

Nothing I can write can even come close to doing justice to Portland House. It is absolutely beautiful and we wanted for nothing all weekend. The bedrooms were gorgeous and light and we all slept like logs (due in part to the Egyptian cotton sheets no doubt), the dining room fit us all in and we had lovely breakfasts each day (we had ordered a food delivery to come to the house). The fridge is absolutely ginormous and lots of under cupboard space for all our cereals and bread etc. Cooker was fab, cooked five pizzas in one go on the Friday and then cooked pasta for 20 on the range for the next night.

Beautiful garden where we ate and drank outside until the evening, great local walks up the canal and beyond, and great restaurants (would recommend the Tapas Terrace in Cromford). On our last night we made use of the bar room and had our own private disco until the small hours, great sound system that plays in different rooms around the house!

Basically everything we could've wanted was provided without even having to ask. Two dishwashers meant we could keep things clean and tidy, and there is an abundance of crockery and cutlery so we were never short on anything.

One small thing summed up how brilliant this weekend was, and how everything had been thought of it really took the stress out of the weekend. Before our bride-to-be arrived we made use of the two ice buckets behind the bar but bemoaned the fact that we had forgotten to get some ice on the shopping order. I looked in the freezer on the off-chance and there were two huge bags of ice cubes! Something so small made all the difference.

I couldn't recommend Portland House enough, all the guests have told their friends and we are trying to think of excuses and reasons to all get together there again. If we could rate it 10 stars we would!

“Surprise 60th Birthday for my husband”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Excellent place, spotless would highly recommend, all facilities were excellent kitchen was stocked with all the equipment you would need to cater for large parties. Juliet was very helpful in helping me plan the surprise. The recommendations she made for catering were spot on. We had Charlie from The private chef company. The food was fantastic, we also had a magician ( Wiz Spencer) come in to entertain us after our dinner party.
First class would use again.
