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.

What People Are Saying
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.
