* stayed in April '17
we had a fantastic stay in the Telephone Exchange. It was great for both kids running around during the day and for a more gentile (lively in its own way!) mass group meal for adults later on. Loved the all in one space, but still felt like it had sections for groups to hive off. Great work on the design. Comfy bedrooms, very good spec and faultless admin (as per last time I used you). You can get a huge group sitting around the sofa area with bean bag chairs pulled up and playing games with the fire on. The kitchen is so well stocked too - four ovens!!

Thanks for providing a base for what was an incredibly fun weekend. A cohort decided to stay on the Sunday night and I left them drinking Bloody Marys in the sunshine and felt very jealous.

Just wanted to say what a fantastic house the The Telephone Exchange is. We had a fantastic weekend and the house was perfect. Also had a great lunch at the pub on Saturday all the staff were great and couldn't have been more helpful.
Gittins stayed in April '16
I would just like to say a massive thank you on behalf of myself, the bride to be and all the other hens for the wonderful stay we had at the Telephone Exchange this weekend. Everyone commented on what a fabulous venue it is, and how completely appropriate it was for our stylish bride to be! The interior decor has been finished to perfection and a lot of thought has been put into providing everything we could possibly need for our stay. We expected there to be a few snags in a newly renovated property of that size, and were pleasantly surprised to find none! The building is deceptively spacious and light inside and very comfortable - the wall mounted log burner is a particularly nice touch! The space was perfect for our party of 11 as most people had a room to themselves. My only slight concern would be how comfortable the space, in particular of the bedrooms, would be at full capacity. We will definitely be recommending the Telephone Exchange to others and I'm certain that many of us would like to return again in the future for family gatherings. Finally, I would just like to thank you all at Peak Venues for your help and excellent service over the past few weeks, which has been greatly appreciated.

“We have just returned from an Easter break at The Telephone Exchange at Parsley Hay, and I can thoroughly recommend it for groups, family gatherings, or corporate bookings. The house is finished to a very high standard, and is extremely well equipped. I make many house/cottage/group bookings, and it was great that the house is so well stocked and the layout was exceptional. The upstairs rooms off one corridor gave us the feel of staying in a luxury hotel. The facilities were great, and the house is like a Tardis and very spatially deceptive. All of the guests having their own bathroom/en-suite added to the feeling of privacy. The shared space was cosy, despite its scale, and we made very good use of the Table Football to keep the teens entertained. The house is minutes from the High Peak trail, and as a family we utilised the local cycle hire, who have a great mix of bikes. The walk to the Royal Oak was approx 40 minutes, which we enjoyed, but it proved a little too far for Nan, so the wheelchair bikes may be needed if your group have mobility issues. The pub is also owned by the same people, and they were very accommodating, fitting us in for lunch/dinner and the food and service were great too. The house is a great celebration venue, and I would highly recommend it to explore the local area and delights of the Peak District.”
Kidsley stayed in February '16
The house is a credit to you all, every little detail is thought of to make our stay comfortable, we all had a lovely family weekend.
