“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed here for my 50th birthday with friends. The whole house is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are all immaculate with very comfy beds too. The two small rooms without ensuite have an amazing bathroom. It really is the perfect party house and the owners were very helpful too. I would definitely recommend it as would all my friends.

“Great choice for large groups looking to celebrate something special”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a group of 20 for a family celebration and Portland House was the perfect choice of venue. Well positioned geographically, very high standard of internal finish, the rooms were all of a good size and 9 out of 10 had ensuites.

Little touches like two kettles and two dishwashers showed the owners really thought about the experience for large groups. We had a 3 course meal fully catered by a local chef including waiter service who was recommended by the owners, it was of an excellence standard and hassle free as they even tidied up afterwards.

The final touch was one party member left a wallet behind which the owners posted back free of charge.

Amazing from start to finish.

“Perfect for our little peak district wedding!”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Can't recommend Portland House enough - it was just perfect for our small and intimate wedding celebration in the Peak District with close family and friends.

Extremely well equipped and finished to a beautifully high standard, this is a very special place and we found it perfect for our group of 23. Juliet and Martin were so helpful in making our stay exactly what we hoped it would be.

Highly recommended!

“The perfect house for family and friends to reunite”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Thank you to Juliet and Martin for providing a rarity in the holiday lettings market. A well equipped, luxurious home for large groups to get together, with all the creature comforts and amenities you could wish for! Every last detail was thought about with care and consideration. The biggest hit of the weekend though was the bar billiards! My son wants to know where we can buy one!! So much fun for adults and kids who enjoyed competing against each other, for hours on end! We had a fantastic stay, despite the rain, because the house was so comfortable and encouraged socializing. The kids didn't even open their iPads! That's saying something nowadays! Highly recommend Charlie's food as well, from the Private Chef. We had an amazing buffet spread on the Sunday, that both young and older ones raved about. All in all, you really can't beat Portland House for that special gathering.

“What a wodnerful place to celebrate my 50th!”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It took nearly a year to plan the weekend at Portland House c1870 for my 50th birthday but I can't think of anywhere I would rather have been! From the initial contact with Juliet to make the booking to meeting Martin at the house on arrival, nothing was too much.

The information provided on what to do around the area and the additional services available to hire in meant that we had an action packed but luxuriously indulgent time. Portland House is a gem of a place with plenty of space for everyone to relax and kick back. The bar area provided hours of fun - I never got the hang of bar billiards! We had 18 in our party but there was room for everyone and the number of en-suite bathrooms was a bonus.

I ordered the basic grocery package of milk, tea, coffee, biscuits etc and was delighted and amazed to find that not only was it my favourite tea, but we had the most delicious biscuits, jam and cakes from the Chatsworth Farm Shop. Juliet and Martin really had thought of everything.

There is a large American fridge freezer (which was filled most successfully with the amazing food from our chef, Charlie from the Private Chef Company - what a gem!) and a very useful utility room. Two dishwashers ensure that you keep on top of the clearing up and the kitchen is very well equipped - not that we did much cooking with Charlie on hand.

I had a dream of celebrating my 50th birthday surrounded by friends and family in a country house - and Portland House c1870m helped make that dream come true - thank you!

“An excellent venue”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Booking was friendly, efficient and straightforward Attention to detail was excellent. The kitchen was very well equipped and made it easy dealing with large numbers including several toddlers Bath and bed facilities were excellent. We used Strand Catering one evening,recommended by Juliet and had a most enjoyable meal.
The Heights of Abraham were good value with a good playground
The bar billiards in the house were a great hit as were the fairy lights in the stairs.
