Living Spaces

Each property has individually designed living spaces with big comfy leather sofas, solid oak and slate flooring and hand-made curtains are some of the themes that are common throughout all of the properties. Our ethos is that with everyone leading busy 'cluttered' lives we would keep the barns simple yet giving a relaxed feel to the rooms. They are equipped with wifi, Ipod docking stations, TV's and DVD player and there is a communal games room on site for all those big kids who enjoy a game of table football or table tennis! If you hire the detached farmhouse called The Grange you have a private games room in the cellar all to yourselves with pool table and a dart board.

Outside, each property has its own patio and or garden area to sit out and enjoy al fresco dining in the peaceful location with wrap around countryside views and BBQ facilities.

Ram, Dec 2015

Hi Paul Thank you very much for all of your invaluable help in organising our Christmas party over the weekend – not just in terms of the services offered by Peak Venues, but the help in sourcing food and drink for the accommodation, coaches etc. I think that I speak for everybody when I say that we had an amazing time – it was exactly what we wanted. The cocktail making was a real ice-breaker (no pun intended!) and really set things off. Everything worked very well – excellent food, plenty to eat and drink, lovely venue which helped create a really relaxing, informal party. Please pass on our thanks to everybody involved. Thanks once again!

Rolf, Nov 2015

Thanks for the week, it was amazing.

Bottoms, Nov 2015

Thank you. We enjoyed our stay at Applegarth very much and the food at The Royal Oak was superb!.

Langshaw, Nov 2015

We have just returned home after our weekend at Hurdlow Grange. The venue was perfect for our needs, exceedingly clean and well equipped and your staff have been courteous, friendly and extremely helpful throughout both the booking process and the weekend itself. Dom even took delivery of an unexpected parcel of helium balloons on Saturday afternoon while we were all out enjoying ourselves! The weekend was in honour of my mother's 90th birthday, the highlight of which was to be a fully catered celebration dinner on Saturday evening. Much to our dismay The Dinner Party Company, suddenly pulled out approx 3 weeks before the event. I must say, though, that your staff bent over backwards to try and help us find someone to replace The Dinner Party Company, not an easy task with only 3 weeks notice! After countless hours on the internet and approx 20 phone calls, I eventually contacted Tracy Stewart of Dining In Catering and I had to take a punt on her. Well, it certainly paid off - not only was she available on the required date, she rose to every challenge thrown at her, which included a guest with severe food allergies, and 5 very wet and muddy men with bicycles traipsing through her workspace shortly before she was due to serve! Nothing fazed her, nothing was too much trouble, and she produced a meal of outstanding quality at a very reasonable price and turned a near disaster into an absolute triumph! I would certainly not hesitate in recommending her and her staff to your future guests. We lunched at The Royal Oak on Sunday and again, they could not have been more helpful. The mulled cider was particularly appreciated after a somewhat wet and windy walk down the lane from The Grange, and the food was delicious. To say that the portions were generous would be an understatement - even my hungry hordes were replete afterwards! Proper pub grub in a proper pub! I don't think anyone managed another mouthful for the rest of the day! Thank you yet again for a wonderful weekend which even the atrocious weather could not dampen. Whilst the occasion had been a family get together in aid of my mother's birthday, the family are already talking about repeating the visit for a family reunion next year - but if you could lay on a little sunshine next time, it would be greatly appreciated. Well done Peak Venues.

Jowett, Nov 2015

Many thanks for your email, I was just about to send you one thanking you for a lovely stay, we fell in love with Applegarth and have only nice things to say about our visit thankyou.

Wykes, Nov 2015

We had a lovely stay in the cottage and a great meal at the pub, thank you.

O'Brien, Oct 2015

Cannot think of enough superlatives to describe our stay. Suffice to say that we all had a wonderful time. We loved the house since it was so warm, comfortable and well equipped. We had a lovely meal in the Royal Oak pub on Sunday and food delivered by Gourmet Express on Saturday which was also very nice. The information folder was very useful, and we loved the surrounding area. This was a celebration weekend for my husbands 60th birthday and it was absolutely ideal. Thank you so much.

Norgate, Oct 2015

We all had a fabulous time, the accommodation worked well for our group. The Grange was well equipped and there was ample parking . It was ideal to be able to walk directly from the accommodation and to have The Royal Oak at the end of the lane for a refreshing drink on the return. We would love to return or stay at one of your other large properties in the future. Everything worked so well from the initial booking process through to our departure.

Brueton, Oct 2015

Had a great time, many thanks and hope to be back soon

Howarth, Oct 2015

We had an amazing time in beautiful surroundings.

Furey, Oct 2015

Thank you for your email. We had a fabulous few days in the Peak District. The accommodation was great and we were really impressed with the food and service at The Royal Oak. We did a great walk on the Saturday and had a brilliant quad biking experience at WildPark - would highly recommend it.

Squires, Oct 2015

We all had a fabulous time, the accommodation worked well for our group. The Grange was well equipped and there was ample parking . It was ideal to be able to walk directly from the accommodation and to have The Royal Oak at the end of the lane for a refreshing drink on the return.

We very much enjoyed our stay and thought the whole set up you have arranged is fantastic, as is the food (and beer) at the Royal Oak. Don't be surprised if you see us again some time!! Thanks for making our stay very enjoyable

Fewtrell, Sep 2015

Thanks Paul, we had a great time! Made all that much better by having lovely accommodation to come back to at the end of the day!

Williams, Sep 2015

We had a family break at Hurdlow Grange. There were 12 of us aged from 21 to 86. We all thoroughly had a lovely time. The building was clean and tidy and we never ran out of plates, cups, spoons etc as supplies were plentiful. Ample fridge and freezer space. Lots to keep everyone entertained with the games room and the garden area with picnic tables and a BBQ. Even though all the properties were being used there was ample parking and didn’t have to shuffle cars around. The countryside was glorious and very peaceful. Definitely recommend to friends.

Underwood, Aug 2015

We had a great stay with you and hope to visit again one day. Really lovely place.

Pallash, Aug 2015

We had a wonderful time and took up the opportunity to visit the fishing farm and blaze farm in congerton. A great recommendation!

Tutin, Aug 2015

We had a fantastic time, really special.

Lobb, Aug 2015

We had an absolutely amazing stay and our guests could not have been more complimentary about the cottages. They were perfect for what we wanted to achieve so thank you so much.We are already talking about hiring the Crewe and Harpur for our first year anniversary so I'm sure we will be back in touch again!

Herring, Aug 2015

Thank you for your email, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amberleigh House and would like to take this opportunity to thank you. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed especially with regards to cooking equipment, plates and cutlery. The bedrooms and bathrooms were a perfect size for the weekend, and the whole cottage was clean and tidy. The BBQ area was ideal for our party size, and the grass area at the back was exactly as described. All the information which was provided along with the booking email was really useful and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We had a lovely meal at the Royal Oak and the staff were extremely helpful!

Higgins, Aug 2015

we had a lovely time at Hurdlow Grange, it was just right for our large family

Hall, Jul 2015

We had a great stay at the weekend and a lovely family reunion.

Many thanks for having us at Hurdlow at the weekend. We had an incredible time and the accommodation was perfect. We were also really impressed with the food and service at the royal oak.

Robbins, May 2015

A massive thank you for making our stay at Hurdlow Grange so enjoyable. Everything was perfect. The location, the accommodation and the facilities suited everyone from the oldest (85) to the youngest (7)! The venue exceeded our expectations (I have never stayed anywhere so well equipped!) and it made our family celebration so much more amazing. I trust you have found everything in order and I will certainly write a glowing review on trip advisor!

Hall, May 2015

We absolutely loved our stay at Hurdlow Grange - the accommodation was beautifully clean and welcoming when we arrived and was perfect for our big group. We are already thinking about when we can come back!

Hogarth, May 2015

We had a lovely time, thank you. We'll definitely be booking with you again!

Morgan, Apr 2015

We just wanted to say a big thank you for what was a really fantastic weekend at Hurdlow Grange. The fact that we could accommodate so many people in comfort, with excellent facilities down to the last detail was really appreciated. We have been meeting together for 13 years now and feedback from friends was that this was one of the best places we have stayed together in. We had no problems during our stay and hope that you have found everything in good order. Hope to stay again with you one day soon.

Elcock, Mar 2015

Many thanks for a fantastic weekend. The house was exactly what we wanted. It was lovely, and a perfect location.

Skelhorne, Mar 2015

Good afternoon On behalf of the group of Claremont reunion people who used the Grange, Amberleigh and the Cruk'd Barn from 6th to 10th October, I would just like to say how delighted everyone was with the properties. We had a very happy time in spite of the weather and it was great how many things and places to visit were within a short drive of Hurdlow. We usually have a reunion every three years and virtually everyone expressed a wish to come back to the same place again next time. Many thanks for all the helpful and efficient service we have had throughout our dealings with the company and I look forward to another visit in the future.

Fletcher, Oct 2014

We, along with a group of family and friends, stayed in The Grange from Friday 26th to Monday 29th of September. Although some of us have stayed in cottages in the UK before, this was a first experience of somewhere so large. Everyone, without exception, was impressed by the property, its facilities and its cleanliness. Very well designed to accommodate parties of walkers and dog friendly as well. We were pleasantly surprised by some of the little unexpected extras, such as handwash and shower gel in each bathroom and cleaning products in the kitchen. The location is idyllic with many walks starting from the house and the proximity of the Royal Oak (15 minutes walk when thirsty!), a real plus point if you don’t want to self cater. The food there is excellent. The wi-fi signal is a bit weak and intermittent and that is both a plus and a minus (This is currently being sorted). A plus for a great family getaway from it all. A minus if you have a party including golfers and it is the weekend of the Ryder Cup!! My only suggestion is that if you had toddlers, an expandable child gate would be useful to cordon off the steps down to the scullery and games room. From a customer service perspective both Rachel and Katie were very helpful leading up to the visit, in answering questions and supplying information, as was Paul when we arrived. In summary, we had a weekend which was perfect in every way and certainly exceeded everyone’s expectations. Our visit was for a family special occasion but I don’t think we will need any excuse to repeat the visit soon. PS We used Gourmet Express to cater on the Saturday and the food was superb.

Carver, Sep 2014

Hi Paul and all the team at Hurdlow- many thanks to everybody for making our Vistage Group Retreat a great experience whether at the Grange or Royal Oak. I will certainly be recommending this as a great location for similar events in future whether business or leisure. Thanks again

Williams, Sep 2014

Many thanks for a super weekend. Hurdlow Grange, Bats Belfry and Cruck'd Barn were lovely and suited our purposes perfectly. You looked after us so well at the Royal Oak on Friday lunchtime and I can foresee the 'local' branch of our family partaking of victuals in the near future!! All members of our party are keen to 'do it again' and we may well make it a bi-biennial event - in which case we hope to see you again in 2016.

Hounam, Sep 2014

Our whole agency attended Hurdlow Grange for a 3 day conference. The facilities were great. Wifi, kitchens stocked with everything you could need. The breakfast baps and lunch provided was fantastic the home made soup and scones really hit the spot. Everyone came about raving about the place.

Circle Agengy, Feb 2014

Hi just wanted to drop a line to says thanks for an amazing stay... Everyone loved it..... The food was second to none... Everyone is still raving about the soup and scones... Thanks again you were fantastic..

Anonymous Corporate Review, Feb 2014

Dear all at Peak Venues (especially Paul and the staff at the Royal Oak), On behalf of our company, I would like to say a big thank you for all the efforts that went into making our stay (13-14th Jan) a big success. The accommodation was fantastic (above expectations) and the big table upstairs was an ideal place for presentations and workshops. We enjoyed exploring the area on our first afternoon. There were many clearly marked footpaths and landscape features which made our orienteering route a success. The food was delicious and we all returned home very full! The pub quiz provided by Paul provided great entertainment and a chance for everyone to get to know each outside of the corporate environment. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our colleagues, family and friends

Anonymous Corporate Review, Jan 2014

WOW! What a fantastic venue for Christmas with the family. We travelled from Cyprus to be with our adult children who live in the UK as the property was ideally located for all and what a surprise we had when we arrived. Very spacious accommodation excellent facilities with everything we needed even a Christmas tree with lights to add to the delightful atmosphere. The local pub is probably the best I have been in and I have been in a few!! Good quality food with an excellent range of beers brewed locally and the staff were most accommodating and very professional. We had a slight problem on Christmas Day when the oven packed up, disaster was averted as our neighbours stepped in and offered to cook our turkey phew! Christmas dinner sorted. Paul and his staff where excellent at solving the problem and the oven was replaced at 9.00 am on Boxing Day . The whole family agreed that our stay was almost perfect and I would certainly recommend Peak Venues and The Royal Oak pub for any occasion .

Pentland, Dec 2013

Hi Paul Yes we had an absolutely fantastic time - everything that we expected. I can't believe the time went so quickly. Your houses are beautiful and we were so glad that we booked Cruck'd Barn as the upstairs was absolutely fantastic to party in!!

Craig, Dec 2013

Craig, Dec 2013

Properties were clean and well supplied with everything you need. Had a great weekend away with the family, plenty of places to visit during the day and properties are good for all getting together at night. I'd forgotten how beautiful the Peak District is, will definately go back.

Dee, Nov 2013

Extremely well equipped kitchen for big groups. All rooms en-suite with good showers and hot water. Clean, warm and comfortable. Great location and a really good pub 10 mins away! One of the best places we have stayed in in the 15 years we have been meeting up

Brown, Nov 2013

Dear Paul and the team. Just writing to send you a massive thank you for your assistance in making our family party weekend for my 40th birthday a great one. I have had such positive feedback from all my family members remarking on what a great weekend it was. The accommodation and the quality of it was second to none and they said I'd made a good choice of venue and wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend it. Some even suggested making it an annual event! Everything was handled by your team from start to finish with the utmost efficiency and it all seems to be a really well oiled machine, from the booking process to the meal at the Royal Oak where the food was excellent and the service, friendly. Please pass on our thanks to all the team members involved.

Brown, Nov 2013

I just wanted to email and say a huge thank you for everybody who has helped with this booking. We had a BRILLIANT weekend and the properties by far exceeded our expectations. They were so clean and beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we could have wanted. It was so easy to make all the arrangements and collecting the keys at the pub was as simple as it could be.

We have just returned from a brilliant weekend at The Grange. Just wanted to comment on what a lovely property it is in such a beautiful location. The house was immaculately clean and the staff were very attentive. Paul seemed worried about the water damage you had suffered recently but it caused no problems and your team must have worked very hard to rectify the damage. We had a meal at the Royal Oak we was fabulous again the staff were fantastic and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly my only regret was not being able to finish my meal due to the portion size. Your team really must be congratulated in providing such a wonderful relaxed holiday experience.

Clyne, Apr 2013

We had a fantastic weekend and everyone that was there commented on what a great venue it was for a large group of friends. I'd like to thank you for the assisting me to organise an unforgettable weekend and 40th birthday! Thank you.

Quance, Mar 2013

We had a lovely time. Thanks to all at Peak Venues. We will certainly recommend it and may be back ourselves very soon.

Nesbit, Feb 2013

I wanted to say a very big ‘thank you’ to you all following our recent stay. The accommodation was truly superb and we were all very impressed with the level of care which you clearly take to ensure your guests are well looked after, and all their needs anticipated, even down to ice in the freezer and laying on the projector screen.

Dodds, Feb 2013

Thanks again for a fantastic stay - the Grange (once we made it there!) exceeded our expectations in pretty much every department. Also, the food yesterday lunchtime was superb.

Deering, Jan 2013

Hi Paul et al. Brilliant weekend – snow was great! Excellent accommodation – really well equipped. Comfy beds and great showers. The glass panel in the sitting room floor was genius! I don’t think there was anything we wished we had. Thanks for looking after us so well – the personal touch means a lot. We shall certainly be recommending you!

Jones, Jan 2013

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay, and for all your help getting us in through the snow. We had a fabulous time, and can't wait to come back some time.

Eaves, Jan 2013

Thanks for a great time at Hurdlow Grange. The cottages were fantastic and the location superb. We've stayed at a few large group venues over the past few years and Hurdlow was definitely the best. Once again thanks very much and we'll definitely be back in the future.

Oxtoby, Jan 2013

Thanks Paul, we had a great time. Our accommodation at Hurdlow Grange was very good, ideal for our purposes, and we also very much enjoyed our New Year's day meal at the Royal Oak.

Matthews, Jan 2013

Dear Team I wanted to send a BIG thank you to you all for a fantastic Christmas ,we felt most welcome both in the lovely cottage and the pub. We would highly recommend you !

Barrel, Dec 2012

We all had a wonderful time staying the cottages. It was the perfect venue for my birthday; so cosy, clean and well equipped - thank you!

Brownley, Dec 2012

Had a fantastic weekend at The Grange, the house was excellent, the location and scenery was spot on and your help and assistance has been great. I would recommend it to anyone and I will write a review on trip advisor in next few days.

Brady, Nov 2012

Thank you for your email. We did enjoy our time in the Peaks and we certainly saw quite a bit of it on our 32 mile bike ride whilst we were there! The accommodation was superb and we also enjoyed our time in the Royal Oak.

Norris, Nov 2012

Thank you for making our stay at The Grange so special, what a wonderful place to stay and very well equipped. We all had a really great time and will definitely be staying again in the future.

Hicks, Nov 2012

Excellent accommodation,everything you said it would be, superb facilities and many thanks for liaising with hospital re one of our party,who returned to us on Saturday.

Eves, Oct 2012

Our party had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Hurdlow Grange. Everyone was impressed by their bedroom facilities and bathrooms. We found the lounge very cosy for a group of this size, comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen facilities were more than adequate with plenty of crockery/utensils etc. and a very efficient cooker. We enjoyed using the large dining room for our meals. A couple of trays would have been handy for carrying cups and glasses around, but that is just a minor point. Overall, we had an excellent couple of days cycling and exploring the area and will certainly recommend you to our friends.

Thompson, Oct 2012

We all had such a fabulous weekend away....the cottages and pub were amazing. We will definitely be arranging another trip in the near future.

Levine, Oct 2012

We had a wonderful holiday at Hurdlow Grange (despite the weather!) and it enabled us to give my mother, in her words, 'a perfect 80th birthday'. We hope to return in the future,

Poole, Sep 2012

Many thanks for the email, my family and I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the two properties we had (Applegarth & Bat’s Belfry) and it provided a great location for me to celebrate my 40th birthday with my family and I’d definitely recommend it as a place for others to stay.

Garret, Aug 2012

We had a fantastic time thanks. Applegarth was perfect and extremely well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the food at the Royal Oak so ended up eating there for three of the four nights which was very welcome after a day on the hills.

Worthy, Jul 2012

Thank you for the use of the cottages this weekend, we had the most amazing time and the accommodation was perfect - just what we needed. The cottages were very clean, well presented and the communal space, particularly in Cruck'd Barn, was perfect for a entertaining a large group. We couldn't have asked for anything better, and I'm sure we will be back for a visit at some point. Also I have to say that the service we have received from yourselves, from initially enquiring about the properties, right through to our departure, has been faultless - extremely helpful and accommodating.

McNelly, Jul 2012

We used two of the properties at Hurdlow for our 2-day leadership away days and found the accommodation excellent in totally meeting our needs. We were able to socialise in The larger of the 2 properties,which included a competitive pool match, in the Grange quite comfortably as a group of 11 and the second property worked well for our work and break outs during the day. The stunning scenery and 'get away from it all' location genuinely had everyone relaxed very quickly. Ideally located for outdoor activities as well - we used the go-carting venue a few miles away. We also used the part-catered option with the only complaint being the cakes were just too good! The staff worked seamlessly in the background,providing excellent full breakfasts and lunches. We also had a very good group meal at the Royal Oak which was a nice 15/20 minute walk down the lane and is owned by the same people. Thanks to all again - highly recommended for corporate and family get togethers Julia Langton HR Director Wesco Aircraft Europe

Langton, Jul 2012

We had brilliant time in the peak district and really liked Hurdlow Grange especially Cruck'd Barn. It was a very special place to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday with friends. Shame about the weather but it just means we will have to return! We had a good evening in the pub on the Saturday night with good food and lovely staff. Will write a review on Facebook and recommend to friends looking for a place to go for a break.

Barnes, Jun 2012

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you so much. We had a wonderful time at the cottages. They were so comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there while visiting the beautiful Peak District. We would all like to say thank you to your colleagues who made us feel very welcome and were very helpful as well. We all had a super time and appreciate all that was done to make our stay an enjoyable one. Just to let you know we will always recommend your cottages to our family and friends and hope to return again soon.

Reynolds, Apr 2012

Dear all of the team at Hurdlow, I just wanted to send you an email to say a HUGE thank you for all of your help in making our weekend at Hurdlow last weekend so special. The venue was absolutely perfect and every single guest fell in love with the beautiful cottage, amazing facilities and the fantastic surroundings. It really was a weekend full of incredible memories and the 'bride to be' left a very happy lady. So thank you so so much to all of the team for helping to set up the cottage as we required and for all of the help along the way. I know that all 14 girls will definitely be highly recommending the cottages to their friends and families.

Singleton, Apr 2012

Just a short note to thank you and all the staff at the Royal Oak for making our weekend such a great success. All the guests were really impressed with the location (as we knew they would be) and the food at the pub was great, quickly served by good humoured, calm and patient staff! Everything worked well, the venue and surrounds are perfect for a re-union such as ours that catered impressively for all ages and levels of mobility. I am sure we will be back.......and probably some of the others. Thanks again P.S The Hartington bitter was bloody lovely - a great pint that got huge amounts of praise!

Tapley, Mar 2012

I would like to let everyone know how much we enjoyed celebrating my husband's 40th birthday staying at The Grange and Cruck'd Barn. Every member of staff that we came into contact with, from our initial enquiry with Paul through to finally checking out, couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. It took us a long time to find a venue that suited our needs and The Grange and Cruck'd Barn were perfect. Both venues were excellently furnished and equipped, and the Cruck'd Barn provided the perfect setting for a dinner party for 20. Sunday lunch at the Royal Oak finished the weekend off perfectly - food was fab! We and all of our guests had a truly wonderful time and the weekend was one that will be remembered for a long time for all the right reasons!

Slade, Mar 2012

I think I won't be the only person in the party to say that we had a fantastic time at Hurdlow Grange and we were all extremely impressed with the venue and the facilities. Can't speak more highly of it!

Berry, Feb 2012

Thank you very much for an excellent weekend. We had a great time, the food at the pub was great and the real log fire on a snowy Saturday afternoon helped to make the occasion (and warm people up after our walk in the snow). The properties were excellent for a large gathering and everyone commented on them.

Unsworth, Feb 2012

Thank you and all concerned with the wonderful week end we just spent at Hurdlow. We soon settled in and the two buildings worked well together. It was interesting how the age groups from 2 to 80 got on together. Gourmet Express cooked and served a lovely meal for us on Saturday evening and I would certainly use them again. Yours staff's efficiency in replying promptly to emails and in keeping me informed generally was excellent. Thanks again,

Isherwood, Feb 2012

We had a really lovely time at Hurdlow. Can't fault anything, plus a super meal at the Royal Oak.

Kendrick, Feb 2012

Just a quick note to thank you and your team for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend - a repeat visit for a number of us. We all loved the barns, and the meals at the pub were delicious, with fantastic friendly service. It was great to have such cosy places to return to after some chilly walks and to have such well equipped kitchens to prepare our Christmas meal on Saturday night. Kind regards

Pettit, Dec 2011

Hi, We stayed this weekend at the Grange and just wanted to let you know what an amazing place you have and what a great time we all had. We will definitely be back and have already been spreading the word around work colleagues and friends. Thank you so much and Kelly is awesome. Truly a magical and warm place. See you soon, Craig, Andrew, Betty Westie) and Bob (Ginger Mongrel)

Morgan, Nov 2011

The properties were all exceptional and I enjoyed a very happy birthday celebration, thanks in no small part to the quality and offerings of the accommodation. We will look to come back again (I’ll try think of another milestone….), if only to try the Pub food – some of our party went and were effusive about the menu!

Allen, Nov 2011

Thank you so much, we had the most amazing weekend. The cottages were perfect and thought your service before and during were excellent. We were also very lucky with the weather!! The food at the pub was outstanding and quick to get out to us aswell, even though we all turned up for lunch on the Saturday after our walk without booking. After posting photo's on facebook I have already had a couple of people ask where the cottages were, so have passed on your details. We will be back, when I can summon the energy to organise again.

Harrison, Oct 2011

We found everything very comfortable and clean - Hot water was plentiful. The location is superb and the 'party room' in Cruck'd barn was marvellous. It was good to have the 'games room' for a table tennis tournament - all in all an excellent weekend!Thanks again - we may well be back if we decide to re-visit the area.

Macdonald, Oct 2011

Just wanted to let you and your team know how much we enjoyed our recent stay at Amberleigh House (9/9 - 16/9). The accommodation was great. It was very well equipped and very comfortable. All in all we thought that Hurdlow Grange is a charming little venue and I hope that we will be able to come up and stay there again soon. The food at the 'Oak' was awesome. We ate there 6 nights out of 7 and all enjoyed every mouthful. The food was consistently good on each visit and your team were always very welcoming, accommodating and really friendly. We did consider eating elsewhere but by the end of the week we were hooked on our 'Oak' fix every day. So thanks Paul and hope to see you again one day. All the best

Orrel, Sep 2011

Once again, many thanks to you and your Team for the contribution to what was a special birthday weekend for my wife. You’ve got a great gig there, a great setting and a wonderfully laid out and presented set of houses, and we felt comfortable and at home from the outset. Many thanks again Paul, to you and your team. I’m so glad that we chose to stay with you.

George, Sep 2011

Many thanks for a great week, accommodation was excellent and even the weather was not too bad. The sun shone brightly on the day we needed it! We will not be back for another wedding but will certainly be back for some R and R.

Hinchliffe, Aug 2011

We had an excellent time staying at Hurdlow Grange last weekend. It was a fun weekend had by all and the accommodation and its surroundings were perfect!

Rowe, Aug 2011

The Cottages are beatifully decorated and kept. The surrounding fields are lovely, specially if travelling with kids as cows and sheeps are in the front door. The place is isolated, The Royal Oak is almost a mille away. Cottages have a private patio area with BBQ, if the weather allows it! Having lunch or dinner in The Royal Oak is a must do, the food is wonderful!

Germanier, Jul 2011

We would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for looking after us so well and being so helpful with regard to our booking for the weekend of our joint 50th birthday celebration at Hurdlow Grange last weekend. It felt like nothing was too much of a problem, whether it was agreeing to us having a marquee, or organising early access to erect the marquee, and for allowing us to make a bit of noise. We also thank you for all the advice with regard to Caterers. Ruth at Peak District Fine Foods provided excellent food and a great service. We would like to praise the accommodation and facilities at Hurdlow Grange, all our friends were highly complementary of the houses, the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens. The Cruck’d Barn worked brilliantly as a social space for the whole group where we managed to assemble all 42 of us for drinks Friday evening, and Saturday evening after the music stopped. As I said in our earlier email the whole weekend was brilliant, perfect in every way. Thank you once again for helping make our party such a success.

Mills, Jun 2011

We all had a wonderful weekend and will be recommending the Grange to friends and family.

Davis, Jun 2011

We had a great time at Th Grange, the set up was fantastic, also the Pub and meals were marvelous and very friendly and helpful staff.

Foster, May 2011

We all had a fantastic time. The venue was ideal - just a short walk to the local pub with stunning walks right on the doorstep. The accommodation was great. It was perfect for a large group with good sized bedrooms and living accommodation and with a well equipped kitchen with ample cutlery and crockery and a separate huge fridge for all our liquid refreshments! The rooms were lovely and comfortable and everyone slept well and most were en suite, and the lounge and dining room easily catered for a large group. There was good information provided about the accommodation, the local area, attractions and walks and the Management were eager to accommodate any requests we had. Overall it was fabulous ... I couldn't have asked for anything better and would love to come back sometime in the future and I know a couple of my friends who also stayed are interested in coming back too. It was a perfect location for by birthday celebrations and it made the weekend very special.

Watson, Mar 2011

We had a fabulous weekend; over and over we heard how nice the cottages are, and people really enjoyed visiting the Peaks. Thanks for making our wedding celebrations run as smoothly as possible - we loved every minute of it.

Mean, Mar 2011

We all had an outstanding weekend, and we’re all looking forward to our next one already! I will certainly be recommending Hurdlow Grange to anyone who will listen! Many thanks

Stewart, Feb 2011

Just got back home from lovely weekend in the Grange. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and both the house and pub were even better than expected. Huge thanks from us all and I'm sure we'll be back! Best wishes

Colville, Jan 2011

Dear Paul and the rest of the team I would just like to thank you for the wonderful weekend at Hurdlow Grange. We all had a fantastic time and everyone was raving about the quality of the food and the excellent service at the Royal Oak. Thanks for everything and we look forward to seeing you in December, if not before!

Downie, Jan 2011

Hi Paul and team, a brief note to thank you for a lovely break at The Grange, we have had a fantastic time. The Grange had all we needed to thoroughly enjoy ourselves over the new year period.

Savage, Dec 2010

We had a fab time and would not hesitate to recommend the property to all our friends, and the pub which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Banner, Nov 2010

Wonderful stay. Countryside just beautiful. Loved Cruck'd Barn and will come back again. Pub very good and would recommend. Chatsworth Fantastic.

Andrew & Family, Oct 2010

My friends bought me here for my 70th birthday. What a beautiful tranquil place. All very quiet and no alcohol consumed at all!! Fab position and location. Would hope we may return. We had a wonderful time and I loved all the properties.

Joan & Friends, Oct 2010

Lovely accommodation, the best cottage/barn we have ever stayed in. A great location convenient for visiting surrounding villages. We spent most of our time outdoors walking which was fantastic - wish we had had more time

Kelay, Sep 2010

We rented The Grange and Cruck'd Barn for a 50th birthday celebration with 22 friends and family and had an absolutely fabulous time. Some of the rooms in The Grange are slightly more spacious than in Cruck'd Barn but the wonderful 'party room' above the barn worked brilliantly and we prepared most of the food in the larger kitchen in The Grange. The setting is beautiful, totally peaceful and very safe for the two 10 year olds to wander around making friends with the cows! We had lunch in the pub on Sunday, good quality and hearty portions. Paul was so helpful both up to and during the weekend and we got the feeling that he genuinely wanted to make our stay as good as it possibly could be.

All of our guests thought the place was a real find. We would definitely go back again.

Ms K Schmidt, Jul 2010

Great, well equipped modern rooms in a beautiful period property. Fantastic views. Food in the Royal Oak pub down the road is excellent. Staff incredibly helpful.

Mr A Tull, Apr 2010

We are a small wind band and each year take a weekend music making break. We have been doing this for 14 years now and Hurdlow is one of the best venues we have yet found. Paul White and his team have done a brilliant job on the Grange and barns and we cannot recommend it highly enough.

Mr K Prosser, Jan 2010

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for a great weekend, 6th to 9th November, at Hurdlow Grange - a fantastic venue in a wonderful location for family and friends to celebrate a special birthday.

The accommodation was ideal, with room for people to have some of their own space through the different houses and the wonderful room for everyone to gather in Cruk'd Barn - it worked perfectly. We also had a great night at the pub on Friday and as well as the celebrations we were able to explore, walk and play golf - we managed to fit so much in! Thank you for your help and for being so welcoming, it all added to a great weekend Best regards

Libby, Nov 2009

We had a fantastic few days. The accommodation was perfect for our big family get-together, so thoughtfully designed and equipped. There was more than enough space for us all and we wanted for nothing. The Royal Oak down the road was an ideal stop-off on our walks!

Clarke Family, Dec 2008

Hurdlow Grange was an excellent venue for our group of 22 walkers. We were able to eat together (at one time) albeit rather a tight fit. The Barn enabled us to meet together in one place in the evening and the Table Tennis table was popular and good fun. We will be back again soon.

Mick Hayter, Kings Langley Walking Group, Oct 2008

Hurdlow Grange was a perfect venue for a large family reunion - 36 of us! We rented four of the cottages including The Grange where the range cooker was sufficient to cook for all of us on and where we ate in two shifts, children first and then adults. The Cruk'd Barn had a great upstairs area to gather in and plenty of crockery and cutlery was provided in the cottages. The games room was a hit with the youngest family members

Ruth Wilkinson, Oct 2008

Thank you so much for all your help at the weekend and for making our stay at Hurdlow Grange so very special. We all had the most wonderful time both at the Grange and the pub. The welcome, food and service on Saturday was second to none and really was the icing on the cake of the weekend. The Grange is gorgeous and perfect for our needs. We hope to book again next year for a hen reunion! We will all be telling everyone we know how amazing it was. Thanks so much to you and your staff. Compliments to the chef also - the fish pie will be talked about for years to come!

Emma (and all the other Hens), Oct 2008

Hurdlow Grange is an excellent place for group celebrations - we found it had a great atmosphere and wonderful ambience. In particular the large barns with those vaulted ceilings were a perfect setting for the formal drinks and meal and the smaller barns allowed more intimate gatherings. Without exception all our party (35 plus) enjoyed the weekend immensely. It goes without saying that having the Peak District on the doorstep is fantastic. The food and service were superb (Top Nosh Caterers) - quietly efficient and unobtrusive. Coped brilliantly with our requests for two sittings (children and adults).

Elliot's 50th Birthday Party, Oct 2008

This year we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something special with all our family. Finding a place for 6 children, their spouses and 25 grandchildren plus their husband and friends was not easy and we are so grateful that we found Hurdlow Grange early to enable us to take over the site. The standard of accommodation was excellent and above our expectations, everything was how we had hoped which contributed significantly towards such a wonderful week. Everyone was well satisfied, the cottages were well appointed, the young ones found plenty to amuse themselves and the adults enjoyed barbeques and long evenings catching up on each other. We were fortunate to have good weather with only one day of rain and we found lots to do in the area. Canoeing, rock climbing, cycling, walking and exploring were just some of the activities we packed into the week. We cannot thank Paul and his team enough for making this such an enjoyable week.

Elvidge Party, Aug 2008

Hurdlow Grange and Bats Belfry- We thought the properties were beautifully set out and very clean. We did lots of cooking for the group of 20 and it was great to have enough of everything pots pans etc! We had a lovely time thanks!

Heath, Nov -0001

I celebrated my 40th birthday at Hurdlow with around 20 friends and it was great; very comfortable, well equipped and the living space in Cruck'd Barn is fantastic. The lovely space meant we could all sit around and also have meals together comfortably. Everyone commented on how nice it was and it really is how it looks in the photos. We had a great stay and I had a really good birthday.

Claire Wilson

Thanks for a smashing time - this is a lovely location and was just the ticket for a family get together.

Beautiful barn, a pleasure to spend time indoors as well as out doors. A good idea I felt was to have two extra chairs for when large groups of people are in.

A really well thought out place to stay, everything feels like it has been thought through , we've had a really good time here! Would deffo stay again!

A luxurious place to spend a family Christmas - great facilities in fantastic surroundings. Loved the opportunity to play table tennis. Coasters for the tables may help to protect the lovely wood.

We all loved the cottages and had a fantastic time. They have been beautifully put together and no-one wanted to leave! Thought they were really well equipped and were particularly lovely for a group get together - we were here for a birthday and New Year and it was great that a large group could spend time together so comfortably. We would love to come back.

Fantastic venue - superb cottage. V-well equipped, a real 'home from home'. Great to see the 'hunt' as hounds chased the hare through the grounds of the cottages! Special thanks for the seasonal touches of the tree and wine - really appreciated. All the way from Australia for Christmas. Only disappointment NO SNOW!!
