The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for Applegarth. Verbatim.
Excellent accommodation, lovely location.
Absolutely perfect. Just had a great weekend as a family of 6. Warm cottage feeling and all the amenities you could want. Very comfortable. Pub down the road was excellent. The Royal Oak. We will be back.
Beautiful stay, couldn't fault it! Check in was a breeze, the house was so warm and we were overwhelmed by the kitchen facilities. Parking was great, even on a busy weekend. Would defo stay again!
Great location and it felt really warm and cosy, the cottage was really clean and spacious.
Lovely place, facilities good, bedroom/bathrooms fabulous but living space is on the small size for six people.
Faultless. Will return.
We had a wonderful stay! Beautiful location and a fab pub down the road for food!
A lovely cottage. Kitchen is very well equipped. Plenty of hot water and the cottage is warm. The bedrooms are very well presented and the beds are comfortable. However, there isn't enough comfortable seating in the lounge area for the number of guests the cottage sleeps. Overall a very nice place.
Applegarth was ideal for four adults to enjoy a Christmas break, cosy, warm, with a fully equipped kitchen to cope with the demands of Christmas dinner. Communication with host was excellent and inhouse information detailed. Christmas tree was a nice touch, thank you.
Property exactly as described and spotlessly clean - and very warm! Fully recommend
We had a great stay here. Close to Buxton and excellent pub very close by. Only down side was limited headroom in upstairs bathroom and one of the bedrooms but not really a problem for us. Would recommend
Great spot walking distance from the High Peak trail. Very cosy property with everything you need.
Fantastic space for 5 adults, 1 baby and a dog! Clean and tidy. Good quality bedding and towels. Helpful information book :)
Lovely cottage, great size for 5 adults, 1 baby and a dog for the weekend.
Apple Garth (Hurdlow Grange)is a beautifully located and peaceful place right in the middle of beautiful countryside not to far from Bakewell and Buxton as well as many other beautiful Derbyshire market towns . The cottage had all the amenities you need The only downside which is not terrible is that we chose the 6 single bed configuration and the beds in the back bedroom upstairs were very narrow only about two thirds of the width of the other single beds so would suggest it’s more suited to 4 adults and two children,but we would revisit
We had the loveliest time - a group of 6 friends and were very comfy. Loads to do in the local area (driving) and a great pub just 10 mins walk down the path. Would definitely come again!
Our stay at Applegarth was perfect. The accommodation was in good condition we had everything provided that we needed for a weekend stay. The accommodation is in the perfect spot for the Peaks with many eating places close by. Shame you couldn't provide better weather. lol
Only good feedback to give, very informative from the beginning and a beautifully presented cottage.
We stayed in Applegarth and it felt very homely. We received lots of organised information prior to our stay which helped us plan where to eat and things to do which was very helpful. The location is beautiful and peaceful.
We had a fabulous time. Thank you. The properties were perfect for our needs. Everything was comfortable, beautifully organised and very well equipped. We appreciated all the clarity and efficiency of your organisation.
We have enjoyed the stay. The house was clean and had everything you needed. The kitchen was very well stocked with all you need for cooking. The cottage location was good as well. Only two families of 3 stayed so enough space, but if all 3 rooms were occupied then the sitting area inside might a bit too small. Enjoyed the sitting area outside and bbq. There was no car parking next to the cottage as there other cottages next, so all parking spaces were taken by the time we arrived. We parked in other designated area, just a minute walk away, but it was under trees so got lots of tree sap on our cars.
Lovely 4 night stay in Applegarth, peaceful spot but close to many towns to explore. Also so close to the High Peak and Tissington Trails for bike rides with the kids. Clean, well appointed and spacious bedrooms all with en-suite made this a pleasant stay for all of us.
Applegarth at Hurdlow Grange provided a perfect base for our holiday. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped, warm and in a peaceful setting it felt like home. We will definitely consider revisiting and would recommend it to others. Thank you.
Just the place we were looking for. 6 clean comfortable beds. A very well stocked kitchen. Beautiful surroundings with walks from the door, yet easy to find and a great food pub within walking distance. Excellent. We would all go back.
We were all very impressed with the properties and area.
Great location with amazing views and surrounding countryside. The cottage was lovely and clean and perfect for our stay.
It was a lovely place to stay.
We had a lovely mini-break in Hurdlow. The accommodation was good. The living space was a little tight for 6 adults, but it was worthwhile having an en-suite each. We used the bbq which was great. We had a meal in the pub - very nice and had a lovely walk along the disused railway track nearby. Bakewell is a fabulous little town to visit.
Beautiful place to stay surrounded by amazing views. Thank you for making my mums birthday one to remember!
A really lovely place to stay, the kitchen was very well equipped and the cottage was immaculate. Peak Venues were really responsive and provided loads of local information and recommendations for the area. We look forward to staying again.
fantastic location , property is ideally located for the peak district
Great stay, really clean and wonderfully peaceful. Having the great gastro pub a 15 minute walk down a quiet road is perfect too.
Good location and venue and very clean. We would definitely visit again!
Lovely, cosy cottage. Well presented and spotlessly clean
What a beautiful place - had a magical weekend in the Peak District in this fabulous property. We felt like we'd stepped into The Holiday, and Cameron Diaz was going to appear round the corner at any minute - it helped that we had a dusting of snow whilst we were here too! Glorious walks on the doorstep, a fabulous pub at the end of the road, Buxton a 15 min drive in one direction and Bakewell and Chatsworth House 20 minutes in the other direction. The place was immaculate and exactly as described in the listing. Our only issue was that the bedrooms were shown with twin beds in the photos, but had been made up as doubles, which the teenage kids weren't too happy about. But a quick message and this was all sorted out for us, with the beds converted to singles and extra duvets provided. So, if you want singles rather than doubles, just let them know in advance when you are making your booking. We loved it and will definitely be back!
A really lovely place to stay with great facilities ideal for a group of 6. Nice festive touch having a Christmas tree!
Your customer service is great. Very responsive and helpful. Your cleaning staff work very hard. We saw them clearing/cleaning the property next door while we were there. Thanks. I'd definitely recommend you.
A lovely location, a great pub, relaxing walks - what’s not to love? A gorgeous little bolt-hole”
Accommodation and location were just what we were looking for - some great walks and a pub serving excellent food just down the road (The Royal Oak). Would definitely book again.
Perfect location and house for our stay. It was clean and comfortable, and I would highly recommend.
Great location for the Peak District and especially for the Tissington and High Peak trails Ideal for a short break
Had a lovely family weekend away at Hurdlow Grange which is in a great rural setting with lovely views. Applegarth is very clean and comfortable. We ate at the Royal Oak, as a party of 14, which everyone enjoyed after cycling the Tissington Trail. We love the area and hope to return.
Really enjoyed our stay, lovely tranquil environment, just what we needed to get away from it all for the weekend!
A great place to stay with quality furnishings etc. Central for Buxton, Chatsworth and more.
Lovely stay in a quiet location. Excellent communication from Peak Venues and prompt response when issues arose. Would recommend.
We had a brilliant stay in Applegarth Cottage. We stayed for the weekend as a Old school friends reunion. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. The setting was beautiful and we had a fantastic walk up Parkhouse and Chrome Hill. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again.
Firstly, thank you to the whole team. We have just returned from a wonderful break in a fantastic property. Applegarth met all our needs, and we will definitely be looking to return.
This is a great place to stay - we wanted to stay longer!
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.
Great property in brilliant rural location. Maybe a little snug for 6 adults in living area but all else first class with everything provided to ensure a pleasant stay. Would definitely revisit if staying in this area in the future. Thank you
Fab place to stay, great location for walking and close to a lovely pub. Everything was clean and as described.
Thoroughly enjoyed a family break here - had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
THANK YOU and we look forward to staying with you again very soon. Everything was excellent
We had such a lovely weekend there it was great.
lovely clean and cosy cottage. Lovely having en suites for the 2 upstairs bedrooms.
Fantastic venue, lovely and clean with ample cooking utensils and crockery A few last minute requests from myself were happily met Beautiful location with a good pub a short walk away for the lazy days! “Thank you so much for the stay, our first as a family due to having our first baby at the start of lock down. Lovely place, perfect facilities and well kept Thank you :)”
Applegarth is a really nice, cosy, well equipped little house in a good position for a short stay. We had four nights there and would return when visiting that area again. We ate at the Royal Oak every night which served us very well and we didn't run out of menu options. The big plus is having three bathrooms for three bedrooms, so it's ideal for three couples.
Lovely venue with great walks close.
Just wanted to say that we had an amazing few days away. Property was amazing and the kids absolutely loved it. One of the nicest self catering places we have stayed in.
Clean and well equipped cottage. Quite remote but walkable to the nearest pub. Good centre for this part of the Peaks. “We all had a very enjoyable stay at Applegarth. Thanks. The cottage had everything we needed and was nicely presented.
Lovely venue and barn. Great information from the host pre arrival and early check in offered. The living area is small for 6 so we had to push the sofas to one side to all fit around the table. Lots of lovely walks and stuff to do locally.
A beautiful converted barn in a remote location in the Peak District but only a short drive to the main attractions and trails. Thank you for a lovely stay.
A nice place to stay to explore the Peak District. Good sized bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and pretty surroundings. Only niggle is the WiFi doesn’t work well in all the bedrooms but it is fine in master bedroom and kitchen.
“I would highly recommend this venue as my friends and I had a very pleasant stay. All essentials listed were provided and more, the house is very clean and the beds are very comfortable. As for the owners they were very welcoming and very helpful. The area itself is also very quiet and cozy. “My stay at this air bnb was a very good experience. All essentials listed were provided and more. The hosts were very welcoming and were very quick to resolve our minor issues. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend to friends and family.
Perfect place to stay! Everything you need for a great weekend away. Amazing place to stay with great walks!
“We had a great stay at Applegarth. The owners were very communicative and helpful in trying to accommodate our requests around check in. The space was clean and comfortable. We loved the outdoor picnic table for a breakfast in the sunshine. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for a short stay. Great spot for walking in the Peak District!”
“Lovely property, well furnished and clean. Beautiful part of the world if you are looking to escape to the countryside, yet be in driving distance of pubs, restaurants, cafes and other amenities. Having Buxton and Bakewell on your doorstep make this a wonderful get away. There are many walk for all abilities and stunning scenery to go with them.”
Applegarth cottage is wonderful: old stone exterior, modern clean interior. Location is great, right by the bike trail, open Peak District fields and a great gastro pub walking distance down the quiet lane.
Great place, super clean, friendly host and fantastic location. Perfect
“Great converted barn, very clean, plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. Definitely would stay again.”
“A lovely barn converted to a high standard. Super clean and in a great location, deep in the countryside but close enough to Bakewell and Buxton by car.
“A great base for exploring the Peaks by bike. Get up early on a clear day to make the quick walk up nearby High Wheeldon for the amazing views.”
“Great place. Enjoyed the games room. Not far from a great walks and pubs.”
“We had a lovely trip staying in Hurdlow. The cottage was clean, warm and cosy - perfect for a weekend trip to the Peaks. It had everything we needed, and the pub down the road was also great! Will definitely be staying again!”
We enjoyed staying in Applegarth this weekend, it was very comfortable and enjoyable. The surrounding area is perfect for a leisurely walk and the pub was fantastic! Thank you, we’ll definitely come back
Hi Peak Venues Team, Thanks for a lovely stay at Hurdlow Grange recently - it was perfect & met our group's needs really well.
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
I would just like to thank you for an absolutely fantastic weekend at Hurdlow Grange enjoyed by all my family. The properties are so lovely, the location is fantastic with the pub in walking distance and Buxton close by.
If you have comments you'd like to leave then please get in touch. We love to hear all feedback - good or bad.
It is always best to check the websites for any seasonal opening times as some places do shut early or close over the winter months.
As our award winning pub is only 0.8 mile stroll down the lane, it would be rude not to pop in and sample the extensive menu and try the various local beers on offer. Reservations are recommended, please call 01298 83288.
For further information please visit the Royal Oak website.
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.
Click here for more information on Parsley Hay cycle hire. (Parsley Hay does shut for Winter from 01st Nov until February)
3. Chatsworth House and Park
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.
Click here for a link to Chatsworth House and Park.
A great day out for the family with something for everyone to enjoy. Enjoy 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.
