The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for Amberleigh House. Verbatim.
We were two families with two teenagers staying for a weekend. The house was very comfortable and very well equipped. There was plenty of room for 6 people. The location was fabulous, it was really peaceful with lovely views. It was also easy to get into Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock. The Royal Oak, just down the road, does a fabulous Sunday roast. We would love to stay again, maybe for a bit longer next time.
Fantastic place for friends to reunite - gorgeous setting with great walks and a pub only a short distance away.
Had a great, comfortable stay at this house. Would recommend to others.
Easy to find and great location to explore the peak district. Clean with everything you need. Snug for 7 adults and 1 child, but works really well as a hub and explore. Would highly recommend
We had a lovely peaceful stay at Amberleigh house waking up to a view of endless farmlands and grazing cows every morning. It was a spacious house for 4 adults and a child. The place was super clean and had all required amenities. Game room kept us entertained on rainy days.
Fabulous cottage complex. Amberleigh was ideal, so comfortable and well equipped. Quiet and peaceful. Will definitely return and recommend.
Beautiful and in quiet location. Has everything you'd need and good location for many peak district attractions!
We stayed at Amberleigh House for a family wedding at nearby Tissington Hall. Great location and homely accommodation. Good sized accommodation, for 5 adults, toddler (3 years) and baby (8 months). 4x double rooms available with 3x showers which ensured no delay getting ready on wedding day. Farmhouse feel about this accommodation with ample parking and views of the countryside. Look forward to returning in the future.
Just thank you ALL
Thank you for your email. We had a wonderful few days at Hurdlow Grange to celebrate my husband’s 80th birthday. The 2 houses allowed our family to gather together for the occasion which made it very special. (It was a great advantage to have the extra dining space in Bat’s Belfy) We also thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Royal Oak. Of course, the glorious weather was a big bonus and Derbyshire was looking its absolute best… we were sad to leave the beautiful surroundings on Sunday.
We really enjoyed our stay, a great location for places we wanted to visit and lovely and peaceful. The house had everything we needed, it was very clean and the towels and bed linen were good quality, we were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed.
Beautiful and picturesque with a homely feel and a great outdoor space to enjoy the evenings.
The place was lovely clean and lots of space. Great for walking the dog. Ideal downstairs bedroom and bathroom as my mum is unsteady in the stairs. All round fab place to stay
Thank you for a lovely break . We had an amazing family get together with our daughter and grandchildren from Australia. Your properties were perfect even though the weather was unkind !
Excellent stay in all aspect for two couples. Capable of hosting 8 with four double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms but would have been tight in the lounge and dining table with the max number. Second visit to this site and would certainly look to return.
Beautiful venue, highly recommended
Nice place. Rooms were in the smaller side for 8 people. But overall definitely with a visit.
Great place - a little far off from the beaten track so you need to plan well in advance and bring all your gubbins (30min round trip to local shop). And book in advance for the local pub if you want to eat out. But the actual area was spectacular - easy to get to public footpaths leading along to a huge quarry etc. The venue was perfect, very well maintained and well supplied with cutlery crockery and pans etc. Great little games room with a table tennis and table football table. All in all, if you’re prepared this is a great spot for a relaxing weekend.
It was a pleasure to book with Peak Venues, we will certainly be returning. The location is perfect, the village pub is lovely, walks and bike rides on the doorstep!
Amberleigh House was spotlessly clean on arrival. The kitchen was extremely well equipped; we’d taken a sharp knife (as in other places we’ve stayed out they’re lacking) but we didn’t need it. It was so well heated that we had to turn the radiators down!
Great place to stay with friends & family
Fantastic location, perfect for a quiet getaway. The cottage was very lovely, clean and cosy. Would recommend booking if you want to get to the pub at the end of the road as it gets very busy! Would definitely return for another stay!
We had a great stay, everything was as described, no problems accessing the house (which was ideal for us and fairly well kitted out), also good communication from their side.
Thank you for a lovely stay and a well organised clean place! Location and building were wonderful. Remote and quiet, yet many places in the Peak District are easily accessible by driving. Great local countryside, walks, pubs etc. The kitchen was very well supplied which was a bonus because we cooked The overall space was adequate and comfortable for 5 adults, a baby & 2 dogs. The only minor issue was with the beds, which weren’t the most comfortable, however they’re still totally fine for a short stay. Overall a great stay, would revisit and recommend.
We had a lovely stay in Amberley House and enjoyed lots of local walks in beautiful Peak District.
We had a lovely stay. The house was immaculately clean - thank you.
Thanks for another great weekend at Amberleigh House. Everything worked perfectly.
Nice, cosy with great views.
Just wanted to send an email to say thank you so much for providing such a great service at Hurdlow Grange - the accommodation was absolutely perfect - completely spotless and everything we could imagine needing was provided. The team have been brilliant at communication from point of booking, often replying immediately! We have all been really impressed and everyone has said they would love to return.
A wonderful couple of days in this gorgeous cottage - so warm & cosy in the winter & the games room was great fun!
Great stay for a weekend in the Peak District. Well located, very peaceful! Great communication beforehand and description is all very accurate. Group of 6 + toddler, my only small negative would be that the lounge/kitchen would be a bit tight if there were 8 adults. Would definitely go back though!
Great location for peaceful weekend getaway. 10 minute walk to the pub and lots of local country walks. Cosy house with everything we needed.
Great location, fantastic property! Would highly recommend
Great location in the Peak District. House was lovely and cozy. Great walks nearby.” Had a great stay, many thanks”
Great service and location! Great views of sunset too from the back. it was a really good stay and I’d happily book it again”
Great cottage, perfect for our family, very clean and perfect base to explore the peaks. Will definitely return!
It’s a lovely place. We spend a splendid few days. Very well equipped kitchen and very comfortable over all. Location is dreamy.
My family wanted me to pass on how much they enjoyed the weekend at Hurdlow Grange. We all didn’t want to leave this morning

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, the Tissington Trail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, while the High Peak Trail is 17.5 miles longroute 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. To find the nearest access turn left out of Hurdlow Grange and walk up the lane for ½ mile and you will come to a track clearly marked on you right, follow this until you reach the beginning of the trail on the right hand side. The nearest bike hire can be found at Parsley Hay which is 2.5 miles away and is at the junction of the High Peak and Tissington Trails.

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.

A great day out for the family with something for everyone to enjoy. Start off with a visit to the famous Danebridge Fisheries, a great place to visit with kids, here you can fish in the well-stocked pool, catch your own supper or feed the trout (food supplied). Then a visit to the Wincle Brewery, where you can even do a one day brewing course! After a trip to the brewery why not call into the Ship Inn, just down the lane where you can sample Wincle’s fine ales in the pretty beer garden. Follow up with finally finishing the day off with a visit to Blaze Farm, a working farm that has become famous for their awarding winning Hilly Billy Ice Cream which is all made on the farm using the milk from their dairy herd. With tea rooms, nature trials and animals to pet there is something for everyone!
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 chose 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.
