The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for The Farmhouse at Benty Grange. Verbatim.
We just wanted to say a big thank you for having us at The Farmhouse over the past few days. We had a fantastic time and the house was lovely!
We had a lovely stay in the Farmhouse. Suited our little group perfectly!
Benty Grange is a beautiful place , decorated to a high standard and brilliant for a mixed generation family break . It features eco heating system - you are requested in the handbook in the house not to touch the thermostats . Can I suggest this is featured in the information sent ahead of your visit . The down stairs bedroom was a little chilly. This did not detract from our stay .The wood burner in the open plan kitchen diner gave out fantastic heat and made it nice and toasty. Plenty of kitchen utensils and crockery glasses etc but no working tin opener .
Excellent property and a great experience with Peak Venues from start to finish. Thanks 😀

We had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and the house was ideal for a family celebration. The weather was also kind so the children were able to explore outside and make full use of the games room, enabling the adults to relax. We would like to say how delighted we were with the caterers you suggested, The Dinner Party Company. The food was excellent and plentiful and the service was efficient and unobtrusive. In addition the staff were very obliging and friendly. We would thoroughly recommend them.

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.
