Stayed here for a family get-together we were greeted with the smell of freshly cooking bread, a basket with wine and beer and also milk in the fridge. We had a lovely warm and friendly welcome from Susan the owner who explained about the heating etc. Wellwood Lodge is a large spacious house we found it to be very clean and tidy there was plenty of room for everyone to either have time together or chill out alone, enough showers and bathrooms to accommodate everyone, a large kitchen with all utensils, cutlery, glasses, crockery and little extras you may forget to take more than you could wish for. After cooking it was lovely to sit down at the large dining table and all eat together before another competition started in the games room. The house was lovely and warm especially as this was the weekend of the cold spell with snow, we used a small portable heater to heat up the games room as and when needed. It is a 10 minute walk from Buxton lots to see and do in the surrounding area. It has been a wonderful weekend and I would highly recommend a stay at Wellwood Lodge.

We were delighted to receive such a positive review today, so pleased to read that Wellwood Lodge provided such a great experience for your extended family. The games room is certainly popular when families gather, despite it being a cellar space we try to provide a good range of activities. Thank you for choosing us for your gathering, we hope you will make a return visit.

Just returned home from a week family holiday to celebrate my 60th birthday in Derbyshire.

What a lovely welcoming house this is . So well equipped and spotless . Very comfy beds. Loved Buxton and surrounding area . Pavilion gardens are stunning and just a walk away from the house. Only wish we could have stayed longer so much to see and do. Very helpful owners . Would love to return . Highly recommend this holiday home.

We had a family celebration for our 35th wedding anniversary. A lovely house very clean and in good decorative order. All the things we need were provided in the house quite location. Plenty of space and there were 10 adults in the house and our dog. Highly recommended property, only a short drive or walk into Buxton.

Each year we have a family get together with three generations. This is the best equipped house we have been to. The kitchen was excellent allowing the "chefs" plenty of room and an adjacent sunroom allowed a rest whilst waiting for various dishes to cook. The dining room allowed our party of eleven to sit around a large table with a lazy susan. The bedrooms were great with comfortable beds for all. The children loved the games room.
.8mile from centre of town, with lots to see and do. Grandpa did not like the fact that there were a lot of steep hills to climb, but this was no problem for the rest of the family!

Hello Peter, many thanks for your lovely review of your family stay last weekend, it was great to read how much you all enjoyed the facilities provided, I have read your lovely comments in our guest book too, with alacrity I installed a 'shower caddie' in the shower room today!
I am afraid we cannot help with the hills but they do add to our beautiful setting I think you will agree.
I hope you will return on a future occasion.
Best wishes to you all,
Susan

We were a 4 generation family with ages ranging from 3 - 86. Wellwood Lodge was fantastic for all our needs & the beds were so comfy! The older members of the party said they had the best nights sleep at Wellwood they had had in a long time. We loved the lounge with enough seats for everyone & the dining room table hosted some very happy meal times. The huge table & the lazy susan were fantastic. The kitchen has everything we could have needed & the adjacent conservatory means that those preparing meals can take time out to sit in there whilst waiting for food to cook. Some members of the family enjoyed the games room & found it perfectly adequate. The owner was most obliging & helpful when we needed to have medical supplies delivered to the house in advance of our stay. The family would have loved to stay at Wellwood Lodge for longer & are keen to visit again.

Jane, thank you so much for writing a review of your stay over the bank holiday weekend with your extended family. I am so pleased it worked out so well for everyone, the individual entries from different family components in my guest book were so lovely to read and much appreciated.
A lot of effort goes into preparing the house to meet each individual booking, we do our best to meet individual requests where possible, so a few toys for the little girls and medical needs at the other end of the age spectrum were happily accommodated.
I hope we can welcome you back before long.
