With a total of thirteen bedrooms and nine bathrooms/en suites - nine of the rooms will be under one roof with the additional four in the newly built annex.

Elbadawy, Oct 2016

We would like to say a massive thank you for an absolutely amazing stay at Lapwing Barns. We had the best time. The venue itself was perfect! Lots of space, excellent facilities and it definitely made you feel like you were in the middle of nowhere. Thank you very much!!!

Williams, Oct 2016

Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. The house was perfect for us – helped very much by dry weather. We go away every couple of years and I think this house has been one of the best ones we stayed at. Having the separate living quarters and staircases helps you be together but not on top of each other. There was plenty of amenities which made settling in very easy and meal times quick to arrange. The house itself is beautifully presented and decorated we felt very much at home and the location is absolutely beautiful.

Osborne, Oct 2016

We have had another fabulous weekend at Lapwing. The outside space at lapwing is fantastic and all the children had so much fun running wild,we hardly saw them.!!!! Ideal for ball games and races.

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Lapwing Barns. The specification and décor inside the house is fantastic.

Thank you for the wonderful accommodation at Lapwing Barns and all your and Dominic's help in getting us there safely on Friday. We had an amazing weekend and based on our experience at Lapwing we would be more than happy to use any of your properties for future celebrations/get-togethers.

Carroll, Mar 2016

I was delighted with the Lapwing Barns property as a venue for my 50th birthday celebrations. My family and I were impressed with the property, which was ideal for a group ranging in age from 1 y.o to 81 y.o.. Dominic was very helpful and attentive in resolving a couple of minor issues when we first arrived at the property. For reference, we used your recommendation for Peak District Fine Foods: Ruth and her team provided excellent food, service and subsequent clean up on both the Friday evening and Sunday lunch. I also, would have no hesitation in recommending Peak District Fine Foods. We went to Swains on Saturday morning and had a brilliant time go-karting: Kids and parents alike. Many thanks for providing a property of quality and flexibility which was perfect for my family party.

Morgan, Feb 2016

we had a brilliant time at's a great venue and worked very well for everyone in the group

Coyle-Dowling, Nov 2015

Ward, Oct 2015

We had an awesome weekend, thank you all very much. The setting for the house was excellent, it was finished to a very high standard and was appreciated by all. We will certainly be using Peak Venues again.

Cliff, Oct 2015

We had a fantastic time at Lapwing Barns, everything was wonderful. Thank you very much.

McKeating, Oct 2015

We all had a great time and found Lapwing Barns very comfortable

Arnold, Oct 2015

Thanks we had a great time.

Wiles, Oct 2015

Many thanks for your email. We had a superb weekend at Lapwing Barns and it is highly likely that there will be a return visit next year. Location, accommodation and locality all perfect.

Calcutt, Aug 2015

Many thanks for your email. We all had a fantastic time at Lapwing Barns. A stunning house in a stunningly beautiful location. Everything we needed was there. Thanks again for advising us on things to do. We went to Wincle (fishing, brewery, pub lunch and ice cream!) and also the Poole Caves which were all excellent trips enjoyed by all. It exceeded our expectations. So much so it would be nice to book and come back next year.

Bellamy, Aug 2015

Our extended family of 29 from ages 1 to 71, stayed at Lapwing Barns for the weekend and it far exceeded our expectations. The quality of the refurbishment was excellent and as good as the photos--everywhere clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable with beautiful cotton sheets. Most bedrooms are en suite or at the most shared between 2 rooms.The kitchen was well equipped and the second oven and dishwasher useful. We had an amazing time, enjoying family meals where all of us could sit together at the huge dining table (something that was important for us but a lot of venues I checked out couldn't provide).The views from the garden were incredible and the whole place completely private. The lawned garden was used for family games and the drum BBQ coped perfectly with all the food needed for Sunday supper. The venue design and layout meant we could all be together at any time but could also enjoy private spaces with plenty of quiet corners with comfy seating to curl up in. I cannot recommend Lapwing Barns highly enough and more importantly Peak Venues who looked after us from initial booking through to the actual holiday. We will be booking again next year!

Heap, Jul 2015

Just want to say what a lovely place Lapwing Barns was, would 100% go back there

Roe, Apr 2015

We had a lovely weekend at Lapwing House, so thank you very much. The accommodation was great, really suited our needs and exceeded our expectations.

Chen, Mar 2014

Thanks for a fantastic stay-the property was amazing and the view was incredible!

Jessica, Mar 2014

Hi Following our stay I would like to offer some feedback for Lapwing Barns. The communication prior to arrival was first class. Emails were always promptly replied to and all staff were extremely helpful. The accommodation was excellent. The standard of furnishings and amount of kitchen equipment was excellent and perfect for a large group. An issue with a TV was dealt with immediately and we were confident if any problems arose that they would be dealt with in the same way. The garden and outdoor area was well maintained and used everyday by the children. The provision of Christmas trees and lights was very much appreciated and it was a brilliant location for all the family to meet. Thank you very much for making our Christmas holiday and mums 60th birthday so pleasant, we hope to return in the future and would definitely recommend the venue and company to others in the future

Duckworth, Dec 2013

We had an early family Christmas followed by a naming ceremony and the owners bent over backwards to make everything work for us. An amazing view with lovely cottages with everything we needed, even two big fridges which was brilliant and a well equipped kitchen. We all loved it with cows mooing and amazing hills and great friends and family. Thank you.

Grace, Dec 2013

Hi Paul, thanks very much for a lovely venue and all the extras of cots, champagne flutes etc, very much appreciated. We had amazing sunshine for the ceremony so it was all perfect.

Marriner, Dec 2013

Hi Paul, We had an amazing time thank you! The place was perfect my husband had a great surprise birthday! You and the team really looked after us both in arrangements for lapwing barn & for the meal at the royal oak. We will do a review for you with pleasure.

Dyke, Oct 2013

Hi Paul, We all had a wonderful time at Lapwing. This is my second stay in your properties, (Cliff House last year), I will be in contact for a stay next year!!

O'Conner, Aug 2013

Beautifully fitted out with plenty of kit for cooking, more than enough cutlery & crockery, lovely kitchen for a large group. All beautifully clean and well fitted out. We had a great weekend break with 9 adults and a teenager, plenty of space to allow everyone to chill out after long walks in the fabulous surroundings. Thanks, I will recommend your properties.

Stephen, May 2013

Thank you. We all had a wonderful time. The cottages were perfect and the pub dinner was delicious. Thank you again for making our stay with you so fantastic.

Sharples, Apr 2013

Just a quick note on behalf of all 16 of us who stayed at Lapwing house at the weekend. The house and adjoining cottages were absolutely spot on for all of us. We catered in the main house and it was brilliant to have such a well appointed kitchen which made catering for a large groups very easy. The scenery was fantastic and we were so lucky to see the crisp icy view from the house. We ate at the Royal Oak on Friday and this also was absolutely spot on and set us off on a good start to a fantastic weekend.

Hurlstone, Dec 2012

We arrived back from our lovely weekend in Lapwing house today. Thank you so much for your great service, the house was fab, large, clean, well placed, great outdoor space and really well equipped for a big group and the kids. All the toys were fab though, the kids loved the noisy stuff! Thank you so much for your flexibility in letting us leave the keys at the property, 30 mins to the pub there and back would’ve made our journey home a bit long! All in all a great weekend and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.

Grimshaw, Oct 2012

We just wanted to email to say thank you very much for letting us stay at lapwing house. It was a brilliant week and ideal for what we were looking for. I think we were very lucky with the weather as well! We will definitely be recommending it to friends.

LYE, Oct 2012

We would all just like to thank you for the great accommodation at lapwing barns it suited our group perfectly. I'm sure we'll be back again, possibly next year, as this was the second time we had stayed in one of your properties.

Major, Jul 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lapwing House and Barns. The property was spotless when we arrived and so well equipped for our large party of 16 (celebrating a 30th birthday) . The bottles of wine were a lovely touch as well and very much enjoyed. The garden and views are great and the house was huge (meaning the poor weather didn't affect our weekend too badly). The site is very secluded and we did not see another sole for the entire weekend which was perfect for us. Also the administration of our booking has been excellent. We would highly recommend the property and will definitely be staying again. Thank you.

Tweedle, Jun 2012

Our party of 9 adults and 7 kids had a great time at Lapwing house and barns. Dealing with the owners was a pleasure and the complimentary wine was a nice touch. Even though the weather was lousy the kids had plenty of room to play together and our city dwelling friends still got a great view of the peaks and hopefully we’ll all be back again in the near future.

Elphick, Jun 2012

We had a lovely stay at Lapwing House. All the families in our party had a great stay at the house. The house is great - lovely interior and all the rooms were good sizes and very suitable for our party. (We did move the bed in the small double and bedside table in order to make space for the cot but the bedroom was fine for 2 adults and a toddler). The location is beautiful and the kids loved the garden and visiting the cows in the local farm! The house was definitely as nice as the website portrays and I would recommend it to friends and family. The kitchen/ dining area was perfect for the size of our party and we managed to make some big meals with the great oven! It was also good to have the kids plates and cutlery. The arrival at the House, via The Royal Oak went very smoothly and it was nice to be shown the house first. The wine was lovely- thank you. I'd also like to say that the booking process has been very smooth and I haven't had any difficulties in contacting yourselves. All my questions/queries were answered promptly. Thank you very much and we hope to return again.

Nimis, May 2012

Hi Lapwing! We have just spent the most delightful weekend at Lapwing Barns. Really was a beautiful setting and amazing accommodation. So lovely that we are thing of booking again for next year!!

Harbison, May 2012

We had a very good week at Lapwing, thank you. I wrote some comments in the visitors' book. I would fully recommend this property to others

De Boar, May 2012

Thanks so much for making our stay so pleasurable, the accommodation was great, suited our needs perfectly, and the pub is very good. We enjoyed the food greatly.

Wright, May 2012

We had a wonderful time at Lapwing House & Barns. All of us loved the accommodation - features, fixtures, fittings, equipment, sustainable products, useful welcome guide, wine, & most importantly...location! We did some great walks (Luda Church, Chrome Hill & others) & enjoyed fantastic weather, which I can only assume is standard for the Peak District as it was my first visit. We also thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Royal Oak, a real treat. Thank you once again for an excellent stay. Wil certainly be in touch if we plan to holiday in the area again.

Woolley, Apr 2012

Hi Paul Thanks so much for a lovely stay at your cottages. You personally were so helpful - in the initial booking, guiding my sister to Lapwing (!) and helping out with the heating on the Saturday. Also Rachel and Justin were lovely too. I am amazed you spent about 15 minutes on the phone talking my sister in to the cottages, so thank you so much. I will certainly keep your details for future celebrations.

Hill, Jan 2012

Dear Paul, Now that we are all back at work our stay at Lapwing Barns seems a distant happy memory. We had a wonderful time and thank you so much. The house and barn were very comfortable and you seemed to have thought of everything for our comfort and enjoyment. The large drying room came in particularly handy with all the wet weather we had over New Year.

Smith, Dec 2011

A bunch of friends travelled to the Peak District, all with dogs, for a mini break. The accommodation was great, exactly like the photographs (or I would say even better). Absolutely everything you would need for a large party of people, including a huge dining table. Beautifully equipped kitchen, with marble worktops and plenty of room for everybody. Some of us visited the pub owned by the same people, and I can honestly say the food was excellent and the service was great. The scenery was to die for and everybody and the dogs came back after long walkies, tired, but happy. A lovely find.

Carter, Oct 2011

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lapwing Barns this last weekend: the houses are very comfortable and well equipped, and beautifully situated, and your staff helpful.

Thompson, Oct 2011

We had an amazing weekend, every one of the guys loved the accommodation and I am already looking to book a return visit with the partners invited this time! I look forward to returning to Lapwing again soon.

Summers, Oct 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We thought the house was excellently equipped, particularly that marvellous kitchen; and it was nice to find tea, coffee and essentials on our arrival. The situation is really ideal with stunning views over the valley, within easy reach of all the sites we wanted to visit and convenient for shopping in Buxton. I would recommend it to any of my friends and you are welcome to use these comments as you wish. We are interested in coming back next year.

Sibree, Aug 2011

We had a joint 30th birthday at Lapwing and all agreed that the house and grounds were lovely and beyond our expectations. Great views and very peaceful. Well, the cows were noisy but we quite liked them. Myself and my now fiancee Jenny got engaged during our stay and the whole weekend couldn't have been more perfect. Luxury for the older ones, farm animals and trampolines for the younger. Absolutely great!

Smyth, Jul 2011

We all throroughly enjoyed the stay - a 40th to remember for me! The accomodation is absolutely fantastic, and the views are beautiful. Appreciate you organising the weather in the way you did too......I'm sure we'll use one of your properties again in the future. Lunch at the pub was also good news on Sunday.

Conner, Jul 2011

We enjoyed our stay. Thank-you for the bottle of wine on arrival - nice touch. Highlights for us were spacious rooms, lovely kitchen (made cooking and dining a pleasure), great views over fields from front, use of wi-fi ,peace and quiet. Loved the ice-box on fridge!

Twine, Jun 2011

We paid for the whole Cottages both Lapwing and the 2 smaller ones for a Hen party in May 2011, and loved the location. Fantastic views of the countryside, and some curious cows, despite the rainy drizzly weather which sadly meant we couldnt have a BBQ or sit outside on the benches. The main cottage lapwing is done up to a fantastic standard, very modern and spacious kitchen which managed to host a huge buffet and 18 people easily, loved the ice dispenser in the massive fridge, and the modern hobs. Garden and outside areas and trampolines would be great for kids. So big we didnt even use the lounges just sat in the kitchen the whole weekend! Bedrooms done to a great standard, main bedroom with en suite fantastic and bed was so comfy! Even complimentary bottle of wine in each cottage.

Whittaker, May 2011

We had a brilliant weekend at Ash Barn. Thank you! What a lovely place and what a view! Hope to visit you again soon.

Aryton, Apr 2011

Just thought i'd drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for a great weekend everyone really enjoyed it.. apart from the weather on the saturday everything went to plan. Once again thank you so so much.. We all agreed when we will left that we would have to do it again later on in the year.. so you'll probably hear from me again sometime this year Best regards

Ryland, Feb 2011

Our stay at Lapwing over New Year was fantastic – thank you

Fingleton, Dec 2010

During November my husband and I with six friends stayed at Lapwing House. November might not be a favourite time for some people to be away but the weather was pleasant. If it’s too cold then curl up in front of the fire with a good book. We had a wonderful time. Lapwing is beautifully furnished to a very high standard 10/10. The kitchen was extremely well equipped included American style fridge and a dishwasher; I was even able to bake bread in the luxury double oven. If the weather is not on your side – don’t worry there is even a utility with washing machine for muddy clothes. We organised a Tesco delivery to Lapwing which took the pressure off our journey. Lapwing is surrounded by beautiful scenery in a rural location; however just up drive you are back on a well serviced road, being just a few miles from Buxton, and a stone’s throw from the picturesque village of Longnor. Don’t feel like cooking? We recommend The Royal Oak Pub nr Hurdlow – delicious food with a tempting menu, huge portions and a good selection of Beer, larger and wine. In summary Lapwing House is an extremely spacious house, furnished to a high standard. We would highly recommend it to all types of parties. For us it was a chance to relax in beautiful surroundings, in luxury with good food, comfortable beds, cosy living spaces, in a quiet location surrounded by plenty of walking opportunities, but with also close access to many delights of the south west part of the peak district. Just as a special note – for those of you who enjoy the comforts of technology you will find Wi-Fi, Sky TV , DVDs, CD & Radio. Thank you Lapwing for a lovely break you made us feel right at home, everyone who we spoke to and met in regards to our booking where friendly and efficient with excellent knowledge of the surrounding area and the accommodation they offer – we will be sure to return
