The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for Oak Tree Farm. Verbatim.
We really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for you mail. We had a wonderful time at Oak Tree Farm and everyone was really impressed with the venue and it’s facilities.
Hi all, we had a lovely time in Oak Tree Farm, one of the best places we have stayed in, so said most of my friends and family. The house was perfect for us
It's a fantastic house and we really enjoyed the stay.
Thank you for an enjoyable stay at Oak Tree Farm, we certainly had a good time in a beautiful property.
We had the most fabulous time! Thank you for sharing the home with us, we really did enjoy our stay. The house was perfect for the number of people; plenty of space to escape one another if needs be. The games room was appreciated by everyone especially on Sunday for the Euros final .....regardless of the result! It's a great addition to the house and was absolutely perfect for everyone of us. Also the hot tub was divine and with the view it created a lovely family activity without leaving the house. The recommendation of Sauced Here was a fantastic one. Luke and the team were beyond a pleasure to deal with and contributed positively to our stay, I'll continue to use them in the future. We as a family could not thank you enough for our unique stay for an important....albeit late...80th birthday celebration. We had so much fun and laughter which was very much needed after a tough year. We had said many times we would all return to Oak Tree Farm for future stays, I hope it remains on your list so we can!
We have had a wonderful stay, and all the family were very impressed. A lot of memories were created for my son’s 21st birthday.
We had a great time. The house is really lovely.
Just letting you know that (despite the rain over the weekend) we had a wonderful time at Oak Tree Farm. Thank you so much for facilitating our stay through the clear booking arrangements and the helpful guidance notes you provided. It was a wonderful family occasion for us all and was made extra special by the excellent accommodation and facilities at Oak Tree Farm. I would have no hesitation in recommending booking through Peak Venues
Lovely stay and would happily return.
We really enjoyed our stay, many thanks
We enjoyed our recent stay at Oak Tree Farm. Our party consisted of adults, children and babies and we found the property well equipped and clean. The outside space was also appreciated and well used by both children and adults!
Everything was brilliant, thank you!
Brilliant house and very efficient service, thank you!
We very much enjoyed the venue and the service, will certainly be recommending Peak venues in the future.
Property (Oak Tree Farm) was great. Super spacious for 10 + 10 small ones, given it was sunny and we had all outside space. Snug was a nice retreat and loved the snooker. Third time with you, would always recommend. May well come back to this one!
Just to say we had a fantastic time at Oak Tree Farm. Beautiful house & position. Everything was perfect & it all helped to make it a very special weekend for our Birthday Girl. Thank you all for your work in helping us to make this happen.
I wanted to say a really big thank you for all of your help and recommendations. I organise a lot of these types of weekends and the information provided was the best I have had. We did one of your suggested walks which certainly got the urbanites a little out of their comfort zone - walking through a farmyard using the same route as the cows after a very wet night - say no more but they managed!! I used the farm shop in Bakewell for the meat and also the cake makers you suggested and everything was not just exceptional from a taste point of view, it was delivered with such kindness. I loved the area and it was very tempting to abandon London life and move closer to my roots again.
No improvements needed. The email updates were extremely helpful and all the staff I dealt with were fantastic. Thanks for the great service.
Thank you for a wonderful stay – everyone loved the property and we’re hoping to be back next year.
Thanks for a lovely stay at Oak Tree Farm.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Oak Tree Farm. The house itself was absolutely lovely and we hope we can come back again soon!
We had a great weekend, very happy with the house.
Thanks for allowing us to use the cottage, we had a fantastic time.
Thanks so much, it was a fantastic weekend, we all had a great time!
We had a really lovely weekend at Oak Tree Farm, thank you for everything!
Thanks for such a fantastic stay!
We had a lovely 3 nights at Oak Tree Farm despite the weather. It was perfect for a large family gathering, very clean, comfortable and well equipped - Many Thanks. I will definitely recommend Peak Venue’s and hope to visit one of your other properties in the Peak District next year, I found you very helpful to deal with and I will now write a review for you on the websites.
We all had yet another fantastic weekend at Oak Tree Farm celebrating our nephews 30th birthday,the farm is just so spacious for the 12 of us and so lovely
Great trip, the kids had a wonderful time thank you.
We had such a good time at Oak Tree Farm, it was a perfect venue for our large family gathering. We loved the spaciousness, both inside and out, and although we had intended to visit so many places, we ended up staying put a couple of days as the children ( young and not so young) were having a great time in the garden. We were visited by a hare and a kestrel one evening and we loved watching the housemartins and swallows. The Aga is wonderful, and the huge table so good for all the family. When we arrived there was a problem with a bit of rotten wood on the climbing frame, but it was fixed very quickly and cheerfully after a phonecall. We would certainly recommend Oak Tree Farm to anyone.
We enjoyed our stay at Oak Tree Farm. There were a number of positives including the location, the large dining table, separate communal spaces and the well-stocked kitchen.
We had a super week - the house is fabulous and we did eventually master the Aga. Weren't we lucky with the weather - I feel for anyone on holiday this week. Thanks again.
Everyone really enjoyed our stay at Oak Tree Farm. The setting, with such wonderful views, was fantastic. The house worked exceptionally well as there was plenty of room when eating or relaxing together, and we were also impressed by the quality.
Thanks so much for having us at Oak tree farm, it was such a beautiful house and area.
Thank you Oak Tree Farm was wonderful, suited our needs perfectly and, in fact, exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely week.
Thanks, we had a great stay.
We had a wonderful time at Oak Tree Farm at the weekend. The house lived up to our high expectations and the wonderful weather also helped us really enjoy our weekend.
Just to say we had the most fantastic time this weekend and all the guests were blown away with the house. It was absolutely brilliant, we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for a wonderful time, I will definitely be writing a glowing review and will recommend Peak Venues to any of my friends and family. A few of my friends also ate at The Royal Oak before we arrived and said it was fantastic!
The property was fabulous and perfect for our requirements. We also had a lovely lunch at The Royal Oak. I've recommended your company to friends.
Many thanks Rachel to you and Zoe and the Team at Peak Venues for helping me choose a great place for our family weekend
We all had an absolutely fabulous weekend at Oak Tree Farm. The house was amazing and had everything we could possibly need. I would definitely recommend to other friends
Thanks for having us, the venue was lovely.
We had a lovely time thanks
The property oak tree farm was wonderful and we had a brilliant time, thank you very much
We had a super time, the farm house suited us perfectly.
Thank you - we had a lovely time again!
We had the most amazing stay at Oak Tree Farm. The house was perfect, the facilities were excellent and we wanted for nothing. Everybody commented and how much they enjoyed the weekend and it was a perfect way to celebrate my Mum and Dad's 40th Wedding Anniversary.
I just wanted to say that the house was lovely and made a great place for a family get together. The location was great and the pub were super helpful – needless to say that the food was great at The Royal Oak
Thanks again for a memorable stay – the house is gorgeous, the views are spectacular and the staff at the pub were brilliant. I am sure we’ll be back in the future!
Thanks for a great venue - it really is a lovely property. Everyone commented on what a lovely venue Oak Tree Farm was and I certainly hope to be able to use it or another of your properties again in the future.
My family left for home this morning and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Oak Tree Farm. They seemed to me to be very impressed with all the facilities and with the comprehensive and helpful list of suggested activities. They were fortunate with the weather and the day I spent with them was a lovely one in every way.
We really liked the property, it worked perfectly for us, everything was in really good order, clean and very comfortable. We will certainly recommend you.
Thank you so much for a wonderful break. We had the best time, venue and setting was perfect.
We were wondering about booking Oak Tree Farm again next year as we liked it so much!
Really enjoyed our stay, house was just what we wanted, so, didn't disappoint.
We enjoyed our gathering immensely and the venue made it perfect.
We have just returned from a week at Oak Tree Farm, staying with our extended family comprising ten adults, two crawling babies and three young children aged 6, 4 and 3 years. We have stayed at several large holiday houses over the years, from Northumberland to Devon, and personally I feel Oak Tree Farm is the best so far. The booking process through Peak Venues was very straightforward and Paul, the property manager who showed us around on arrival, couldn't have been more helpful. When a couple of issues arose during the week they were resolved within hours and the photos on the website together with the website description are very accurate. The property itself is extremely well equipped, well maintained and very clean. The views from the property are wonderful and the garden is very large with plenty of space for football and frisbee as well as the children's play area and the BBQ. Whilst we were there we had a small flock of sheep in the adjacent paddock for added interest. We were blessed by very good weather and, having lived in the area some years ago, have first-hand knowledge of how unpredictable Peak District weather can be, so we were delighted to be able to spend so much time outside enjoying the garden. For those not so fortunate, there are several cupboards in the lounge containing a treasure trove of children's toys. The small lounge, which we used only a little as we all enjoyed the open-plan lounge leading through to the kitchen, contains a small snooker / pool table for the older 'children'. I had been a little apprehensive about cooking on an Aga, but Paul very kindly gave me the 'Idiot's Guide' verbal instructions on how to cook with an Aga and that worked perfectly. There was no need to use the alternative two-ring induction hob at all and all the adults felt confident about cooking on the Aga. Buxton is a twenty minute drive from the property, as is Leek, and we had no problem finding supermarkets for food shopping although we had a large Sainsbury shop delivered an hour or two after our arrival. There was no issue with us having an online shop delivered and they found the property without a problem. Similarly we placed an online order with Waitrose and collected it from the Buxton store without problem, although they too would have delivered to the property. So, would I recommend this property to my best friend? Yes, absolutely! Without hesitation. Just so long as I can come too!'
We really enjoyed our stay and it's rare to find such an idealist location that can cater for large groups. I would certainly go back!
I would like to take this opportunity to commend you on such a lovely property, which many in the group commented on and mentioned using the venue again.
We had a fabulous weekend at Oak Tree Farm.
We all very much enjoyed our stay at Oak Tree Farm.
Thank you very much - we all loved the property and it was perfect for our weekend. We are very grateful!
Many thanks for a lovely weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the house and views were amazing. I am also very appreciative of your flexibility in the run up to the weekend.
We had a fantastic stay. Thank you.
We enjoyed the stay tremendously and plan to be back soon. The meal at the Royal Oak was delicious too.
Everything was excellent and we had a great time
We had a fabulous time celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday at Oak Tree Farm. All our guest’s thought the house was amazing. We all plan to return in the near future!
Ian and I would like to thank you for an absolutely wonderful weekend staying at Oak Tree Farm. We had the most amazing time celebrating his 40th Birthday with our closest friends and the venue made it even more special. Everything was catered for, right down to the ice in the freezer. I'm also now a converted Aga fan! The farm was beautiful and we had enough room to not feel cramped with such a large group. It really made our weekend magical, so thank you again. I'm sure we will be using peak venues again in the future for other big events.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Oak tree farm it is an amazing venue. We hope to return at some point.
Oak tree farm, can I just say what an absolute amazing weekend we have had, your accommodation was amazing, thanks for all the help along the way, your a great company whom I've recommended, many thanks
Had a fabulous time with 12 members of our family celebrating my sister's 50th birthday at your Oak Tree House- lovely place, lots of space indoors and out, beautiful scenery, fab weather and a great Sunday lunch at the Royal Oak. Totally memorable!
Oak Tree Farm is just the most perfect place for a large group gathering,the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the farmhouse and it's beautiful grounds,looking for another celebration to visit again!!!!
Thank you Paul. We had a fabulous time. The cottage and location is absolutely beautiful, more than we had expected we didn't want to leave. My mom really enjoyed having all the family around her for her 60th birthday celebration. We would definitely recommend to friends and family. We are looking for an excuse to visit the Peak District again soon we will definitely visit your website for accommodation. Thanks again, we had a fabulous time and made lots of lovely memories for the whole family.
We had such a fantastic stay there - above and beyond our expectations!
Thanks for your note, we really loved the property and couldn't rate the service you offer highly enough. Absolutely fantastic!
all had a great weekend at Oak Tree Farm. The property was perfect for our hen party and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely
We have had an absolutely marvellous time at Oak Tree Farm, the whole family thoroughly enjoyed it. The location was superb and the house was so very comfortable for each and every one of us. We will hope to come and stay again in the future. Strangely enough our son is coming to Derbyshire again fairly soon for a friend's Stag weekend, and they will be staying at another of your properties - what a coincidence!
Thanks so much for setting up your business and providing such a super venue for large groups to have an amazing few days of quality time to spend together surrounded by the most tranquil and beautiful scenery. Our weekend started with the key pick up from The Royal Oak, lovely service and a delicious lunch. Dom guided us to the farmhouse and gave us a relaxed and laid back tour. The farmhouse was everything we have hoped for and more. We had an age range of 1- 80, and we just loved the high level of standard that has been set. The little touches make all the difference. We definitely hope to be back again in the future and will recommend Peak Venues to our friends. Thanks once again - really lovely experience with everyone that we have dealt with from our initial booking - to the returning of the key.
Hi, may I say what a fantastic time I had with my family last weekend at oak tee farm! it is truly a beautiful place and we had a wonderful family weekend.
Thank you, we had a great time and the venue is beautiful, everyone commented in it and I am sure we will use your company again.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in what was a spacious, well equipped and idyllically situated property. Thank you for all the help in making it memorable: we have already recommended it to several friends and family. Regards to your whole team.
The venue was excellent and we would recommend it.
We had a really lovely weekend at Oak Tree Farm. The property was perfect for our party and the style and quality of the furnishings added to our enjoyment.
We had such a wonderful time, the cottage is amazing. Many many thanks, I have already been asked for details of the cottage for a future hen weekend as everyone was so impressed!
Thanks to you and your team for all your help and service this weekend. Everyone was very impressed with all aspects of the trip. You are a very professional, organised and friendly group. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone. You must give a special thanks from us to all of your staff in your pub on the Saturday night, they were great.
Hi, Thank you for your email. We had a fantastic time at Oak Tree Farm. A fab house in a superb location. Just perfect for a family get-together. From the first email to dropping back the key everyone and everything has been faultless. If you have a few minutes to spare please go to the blog on our daughter's website www.elizabethloisphotography.com to see our photos and your lovely farmhouse!
We spent a long weekend celebrating an early Christmas with my husband's family. We are a very mixed group with ages ranging from 65 weeks, 10 adults and 10 children. But we found Oak Tree Farm to be very comfortable indeed. There was plenty of space for us all in the living area downstairs, and a great garden for the children to bomb around in. There was one hiccup where we discovered we were one bed short, but that was quickly rectified the management team. We would definitely go again for a similar weekend
Many thank for making our family birthday celebrations at the farm so enjoyable. The accomodation and facilities at the farm are outstanding. All the family from aged 1yr to 85 yr olds felt it was warm and very homely, with adequate toilets/ bathrooms/ bedrooms and space for everyone to have freedom to enjoy. Having the large table was great for everyone to sit down together for meals. Well done to all your team for providing such a wonderful place- many photos have been taking and everyone will be recommending it to their relatives and friends up and down the country. Sorry their is nothing negative to say about our stay- all gold standard+++++++. I am sure we will be back again
A brilliant house for large parties with a good use of space. My family and I spent the weekend here last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the house. The aga is easy to use and the space within the house catered more than adequately for 17 people. I would recommend this place for a large group expecting a comfortable stay both inside and out.
Thanks for everything. We had a great weekend in the farm house and barn and were thrilled with the accommodation. Many commented that they would make a repeat visit to the house if they were to head over to the peak district again.
We truly had the most wonderful time at Oak Tree. It is a beautiful house in a beautiful location and fitted every need we were after. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you for everything, it was perfect.
We has such a lovely time in the cottage, everyone commented on what a lovely place it was both inside and out, we will definitely will be returning! Thanks again for a fantastic weekend.
Dear Paul, We had a lovely time at Oak Tree Farm. The house was perfect and very well equipped and appointed. The views were lovely but the weather could have been better!Thank you very much.
Thank you for a superb stay at Oak Tree farm, everyone loved the farm and all its amenities. I also want to mention how impressed we were with the welcome we received and the relaxed way you showed us round. A friendly welcome makes all the difference.
We had a fantastic time at Oak Tree Farm and have nothing but praise for both our accommodation and the service we received from yourselves. Oak Tree Barn is an comfortable, warm, welcoming and well thought out property highly appropriate to large groups/families wanting to rent the property. Although there was 15 plus of us we never felt on top of each other as the property was so spread out but we could still all come together to eat at the large table in the dining area The fixtures fitting and furniture are of an extremely high standard and every need has been catered for right down to the childrens toys in the cupboard. All in all a fantastic week, Thank you
We had a fantastic time at Oak Tree and are very likely to return again in the future. You and your team clearly make a big effort to ensure your guests are made as welcome and comfortable as possible and that commitment certainly shows With very best wishes for 2013
If you have comments you'd like to leave then please get in touch. We love to hear all feedback - good or bad.
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 trails and animals to pet there is something for everyone!
Located just outside the mill town of Leek on the edge of the Peak District National Park, this Severn Trent reservoir is another great day out for all the family. There are two lovely walks around the reservoir, the shorter trail is only 1.5miles and is ideal for a gentle stroll and suitable for pushchairs. For bird watchers and wildlife lovers, there are two hides available to use. The fantastic large adventure play area is suitable for children between the ages of 2 and 15 years old. The large sand pit is especially popular so don't forget to bring your bucket and spade! You are very welcome to take your own picnic and there are plenty of idyllic spots for this, but you can also enjoy a barbecue in the new designated area.
Please click here for more information on Tittesworth Reservoir
The Roaches, with Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks form a gritstone escarpment which marks the south-western edge of the Peak District. A mecca for walkers and climbers with some of the best gritstone climbing in the country. Once you have reached the top of the rocky ridge there are stunning viewing across the Staffordshire moorlands. Obviously no trip would be complete without catching the ‘winking man.’
Click here for more information on the Roaches
A short but very attractive walking/cycle route along the route of the former Leek & Manifold Light Railway. Look out for the impressive Thor’s Cave and interesting rock formations along the way and stop for lunch at the lovely National trust tea rooms at Wetton Mill, or take a picnic to have down by the river.
Click here for information on the Manifold Trail
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.
