The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for The Barn at Benty Grange. Verbatim.
Thx for letting us use your lovely home.
We had a fabulous weekend in the house, what a great place it is and the games room was such a bonus!
We all had a fantastic time! The property and location were great! We are also looking forward to booking our next trip for next year, and we will definitely be checking the Peak Venue properties again.
Thanks very much. We had a wonderful stay at The Barn at Benty Grange this weekend with friends.
Stayed over the Easter weekend in a group of 16 and we all loved it! Has absolutely everything you need, all you need to buy is food and drinks. Very clean and spacious. Comfy beds and all rooms have en suites and showers are very powerful. Games room is brill, spent a lot of time in there, kids love it and the heaters are good for when it drops cooler on an evening. Some beautiful views and nice pub (bulls head) not too far away. The building is huge, all the rooms have a really nice touch and feel very cozy. Highly recommended.
We wanted to say thank you for a seamless and wonderful booking experience and stay. It’s a fantastic venue and my best friend had the dream hen do so I’m very grateful
Out stay was fantastic, so thank you very much. You have an amazing accommodation and if we ever decide to have a large get together again we would definitely use this.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a wonderful stay in The Barn. Everyone was full of compliments for the property and its location, and it surpassed all expectations I had for the weekend- truly, thank you for making the weekend so great.
The Barn at Benty Grange was a fantastic place for 18adults and two children from all over the U.K. and America to get together to celebrate a 60th birthday. The range of games and toys for the children to play were amazing, my car loving 18month old loved playing with the box of cars.
Thank you for our time at Benty Grange we had a wonderful family time together celebrating both my husband and my 80th birthdays. I would like to mention that the shower in bedroom 4 filled the tray when it was used it was very slow at emptying. Thank you once again for a wonderful place to stay.
We had a lovely stay in the Barn. Absolutely perfect for the weekend.
Many thanks. The house was excellent.
We had a great time in the excellent accommodation.
We had a lovely time, thank you. The Barn was the best-equipped holiday house we have ever stayed in … so much crockery, cutlery, glasses, pans, serving bowls, board games, etc … and it is often the little things that at the end of the day make such a difference eg a toilet roll on the holder together with several rolls spare underneath in every bathroom, loads of tea towels, dishwasher tablets, tea bags …. And the whole house was well-cared for, clean and tidy. It was a great base to get the close family together. You have the measure of holiday-house-letting!
We had a great time at the Barn. Many thanks for your help
Thank you, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and everyone was very complimentary of the venue. The only slight issue we has was that we found the grill (top left of the oven) only worked intermittently. But that was it, otherwise everything was perfect! Will definitely look to book with you again in the future.
What a fantastic house! We have had a truly memorable weekend which we will all treasure.
Thank you ! We all had an a-mazing time, such a special Christmas.
We had a lovely stay at Benty Grange Barn again and were very comfortable.
Best weekend in the best house!!!
The family, me included, had a lovely break at The Barn at Benty. Parents enjoyed the company of chickens and lambs nearby - you best check on numbers (I joke!) The BBQ, stove, kitchen and games room were the prominent features for me. The ovens were spot on too for the pies. Hopefully we will be back soon to explore more of the Peak District.
Thank you for having us to stay at Benty Grange. The farmhouse was a perfect base for us, it was very clean and had everything we could need. We all really enjoyed our stay. Thanks also for the recommendations for local pubs and restaurants, we visited most of them and had a fantastic final meal at the Merchants Yard on Sunday.
3rd time using PV and hope to be annually..

We all had a great time and everybody liked it so much that we might come back next year for another Johnson's get-together.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Benty Grange with a family group of 12 ranging from 6 months to 87. It was ideally placed to visit historic houses in or near the Peak District including Chatsworth House, Bolsover Castle and Lyme Park, there was also Alton Towers and Drayton Manor’s Thomasland for the younger ones. The house catered for our every need and was lovely to have 2 sitting areas and a large open plan kitchen and dining area. Everyone was pleased with their bedrooms and found the beds comfortable and clean. The outdoor area was well planned and nice area for play. The owners were very helpful when needed and were very easy to get on with. We are looking forward to planning for another holiday for next year.
I'd like to say once again that you have delivered an exceptional service...and I will definitely be booking with you again in the future!

Would just to like to take this opportunity to express what a lovely home the Benty Grange is. Every guest were full of compliments, and the house is just so beautiful. It was the perfect setting, the landlords were so approachable and felt just like home - except it was so much more luxurious. Every guest has my recommendations from Peak Venues as well, may this be the start of many more holiday home adventures. Thank you Peak Venues. PS Thank you for also liaising with other guests to ensure my Hen Do went to a tee!

We all had a wonderful stay at Benty Grange and would definitely recommend Peak Venues to anyone wishing to visit the Peak District.
Just had a lovely long weekend at Benty Grange, it’s modern, warm and cosy, well appointed and extremely clean and tidy, could recommend it to anyone. It’s a lovely walking area, we did a 7 mile walk through Flagg to Chelmorton, The Church Inn there was a good halfway point for a pint and lunch, nice food and very friendly. Another very pretty/scenic circular walk was from Hartington down Wolfscote Dale, up Biggin Dale and back to Hartington, beautiful scenery, lots of good pubs and cafes in Hartington. The Bulls Head in Monyash is great for an evening meal, as is The Royal Oak in Hurdlow. All in all a great weekend made even better by sunny weather.
Many thanks - we had a great time
Brilliant place - great accommodation to suit all ages! Very comfortable - you have thought of everything, even a cocktail shaker Thankyou

On behalf of myself and my family, I'd just like to thank you all for the smooth booking and being so informative, helpful and friendly.

Our stay was truly brilliant at Benty Grange – THANK YOU. The quality of Benty Grange pleasantly surprised us as seasoned travellers - it must be so difficult to achieve and sustain such quality in such a market. Really, really, really good.
We had a wonderful time at Benty Grange and I'm sure we'll use it again in the future.
We celebrated our Golden Wedding at Benty Grange from 29th July to 5th August with family and friends.13 joined us for the weekend and 18 for midweek. The property was ideal for our needs having 7 en-suite bedrooms, 2 lounge areas, a large kitchen/dining area and a separate games room. The house was always warm, the towel radiators kicked in night and morning and hot water was always available. All basic essentials were included. I didn't even need my rubber gloves!! The wine fridge, serviettes and candles were nice extra touches. All of us did our own thing during the day- walking and cycling from the door was a bonus-meeting up for evening meals. We took 13 to The Royal Oak on the Saturday, and 18 on the Wednesday. Everyone enjoyed the food. Our visit to Benty grange was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests.I would not hesitate to recommend the property and Peak Venues. Thank you
Thank you for the most amazing weekend! Benty Grange is gorgeous and we all had the best time!
Thank you from me and all the hens for what was an amazing weekend the house was beautiful.

The house was really fabulous (one of the best we've stayed in...) and Lou and the family were great.
We had a lovely stay, the barn was fantastic and everything was provided for us
Benty Grange was as beautiful as the picture (which isn't always the case). We really loved our weekend in Monyash. Several of my friends complimented me on such a lovely find.
We had a fantastic stay at Benty Grange , it's a fabulous house , with everything you need . All the families loved it . We would love to stay again at some point .
We've had a wonderful weekend, the house is absolutely stunning and I'd love to return one day!
This is lovely accommodation - very tasteful and stylish. There was a nice outdoor area with picnic benches and a BBQ. A good location to explore the many sites of the Peak District and close to a cycle hire shop to walk or cycle along a disused railway line.
Just wanted to say thanks for such an awesome weekend, it was so lovely. The whole service was great and the barn was beautiful. The owners were lovely and everything was stunning. Everyone had a great time. Would definitely use you again .
We had a lovely weekend thanks, which was made even better by how amazing the house was. The space in the kitchen area is massive which allowed us all to be together throughout the weekend whilst activities were going on which was great.
We had an absolutely fantastic time at Benty Grange! We will definitely be spreading the word!
We all had a great time in the picturesque surroundings of Benty Grange – Lou was also very accommodating and relaxed.
All our party were very impressed with the furnishings and facilities at Benty Grange and we had a wonderful couple of days break
Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. The house was absolutely beautiful, so well presented and extremely well stocked. Everyone was very impressed. Please also send on my thanks to Louise – she was absolutely lovely and extremely helpful.
We loved our stay over Christmas and even had a couple of days of snow. Louise is lovely and as the washing machine isn't in yet, even did a couple of loads for us, which was helpful with the kids. Beautiful property and very comfortable beds. We thought we'd come back in the summer some time minus all the little people and do some walking.
“The property is beautifully finished and the rooms and ensuites carefully designed and laid out. The two sitting rooms work incredibly well and the dining table in the kitchen/diner had copious space. The location is stunning and as remote as you would like for a quiet and relaxing weekend away. Monyash, Bakewell and Buxton are all a short drive away as is Chatsworth – so more than enough to keep us all occupied.” Other things that we loved though about the place: The infinite supply of hot water, good water pressure (many places we have been we have had to start running a bath 30minutes before it needs to be used) and generally the fact that there was no shortage of heating; The evenly decorated and proportioned rooms (made room allocation so much easier than normal as there was no one bedroom which was superior in terms of decoration or facilities, no main bedroom as it were); The ensuite bathrooms; The 2 sitting rooms – which surprised us, we would not have looked for this, we thought this would be a disadvantage but it really added something to have essentially a kids sitting area with a kids movie on and then an adults room next door where we could watch what we wanted to; The many thoughtfully provided bonus items e.g. the Thomas the tank engine set in a basket which saw a lot of use and which the 3 year olds loved, the dvds stashed in the cabinet, the bowling game (although we never got around to using it) and some of the other items provided for use. The thoughtful basics in the kitchen cupboard were also an unexpected boon as were the cleaning products under the sink which assisted us greatly in mopping up spills and clearing up the ad hoc mess that kids create in a day. The high quality high chairs and the beautiful travel cots also a massive bonus. The games room – though a work in progress the contents so far were enjoyed by older and younger boys alike.
Benty Grange was great and Lou the owner was very helpful and friendly. Would have no hesitation in using the venue again.
If you have comments you'd like to leave then please get in touch. We love to hear all feedback - good or bad.
With the Tissington and High Peak Trails close by you can walk for miles along these old railway lines. Both trails meet at Parsley Hay (just down the road from the property) the TissingtonTrail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, while the High Peak Trail is 17.5 miles long route from the High Peak junction near Cromford to Dowlow. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for horse riders, cyclists and walkers of all abilities. It is also suitable for wheel chairs and pushchairs along the flat sections and the trail is mainly mud free which is quite rare in the Peak District. The nearest access and also bike hire is at Parsley Hay which is less than a mile away.

Bakewell is the largest town within the Peak District National Park and is a hub of activity. Market day is on a Monday and as well as a large range of stalls there is also an agricultural market which is definitelyworth a look around as it offers a great insight todays farming
community. The town also hosts a craft and gift fair every weekend in Brigade town hall. The Bakewell Old House Museum occupies one of the oldest buildings in Bakewell and dates back to 1543, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the towns past and is very interesting and
informative with lots to appeal to all ages. Obviously no trip to Bakewell would be complete without sampling an original Bakewell pudding. The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop claims to have the old the original recipe and still makes the puddings by hand from the secret recipe.

The spa town of Buxton can really offer something for everyone; enjoy a stroll around the pretty Pavilion gardens. The kids can enjoy the playground areas or you might choose to go for a swim at the recent refurbished swimming pool. The more adventurous may want to try out ‘Go Ape’ the treetop adventure course, for those without a head for heights a visit to Poole’s Cavern is fascinating, and it’s a great activity especially for kids when the weather does not cooperate for outdoor activities. For theatre lovers, seeing a show in the intimate Buxton Opera House is a must, and for the shopaholics the pretty Cavendish Arcade has a range of lovely little boutique shops. Lovers of real ale will enjoy visiting Buxton Tap House, which is Buxton’s own brewery pub serving its very own ales and bitters.

No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth Estate. There really is something to do for every
member of the family - The Farmyard and Adventure playground, the magnificent house and the gardens which are equally as impressive as the house, with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.
