Visitors’ Comments


Wellwood lodge has proved to be the perfect venue to celebrate a 70th birthday, well equipped, warm, comfortable and despite its size feels homely and welcoming. The added bonus for dog owners are the Corbar woods within 5 minutes walk with the most stunning views over Buxton. A fantastic weekend had by all.  December 2018

What a fantastic place to stay! We are so impressed at how lovely this home is and so well equipped. It has been a real home from home, just what we needed (and more) with three young children, 11 adults and 2 dogs, loads of space for everyone. We have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area, the location so handy for visiting beautiful Buxton on foot.  August 18

The perfect house for the perfect family holiday. Beautifully decorated and an ideal location for walking into Buxton and not far from other day excursions into all the attractions the Peak district offers. So much space for all the family with the lovely garden used in the amazing weather. Overall faultless and we had the perfect holiday.  August 18

We could not fault this beautiful house, ideal location for a walk into town in the snow, we have already booked again for next year! Dec 17

Lovely spacious lounge, kitchen and dining room, lots of beds and showers which suited our group of 10 lady  members of a Cheshire book club. One of the best properties we have stayed in! We enjoyed discovering Buxton and the very nice Cavendish shopping arcade with independent shops selling crafts and gifts. We will be back to see the magnificent crescent finished.  Helen   Nov 17

All the family enjoyed this lovely spacious house, beautifully decorated and furnished. We have stayed in many holiday houses over thee past 10 years and this rates as one of the best. We appreciated the room to be by ourselves and to gather together for meals and celebrations. The games room is an excellent feature as well as the well equipped kitchen. The location close to the Lightwood walking area and easy access to Buxton and the surrounding countryside made this weeks stay most memorable. Thank you from the Higgin, Moore and Tyler families.   Oct 2017

“We booked the house for four nights for 12 people to celebrate my daughter’s 21st and my father in laws 79th birthdays. The bedrooms are all very large and comfortable and the living accomodation is very spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped with ample crockery, glasses , pots, pans etc and a large range style cooker. It was lovely to be able to all sit around the huge table in the dining room for breakfast/evening meals. We also made great use of the garden for barbecues and the evenings were mainly spent in the conservatory and the games room. The location is brilliant….being within easy walking distance of the town and ideally located for several walks through the beautiful surrounding countryside . None of us wanted to leave. Would definitely visit again. Fantastic!” Tracy June 16 (taken from Trip Advisor)

“The house is great for big parties and has everything you would need, including a big table for lots of people to sit around. The owner was extremely helpful when I phoned up to ask for something that I had left behind to be posted. Also lots to see in the area. We spent a wonderful day at Chatsworth.”

For a house of that size it was excellent value as well and in a nice quiet location, only 10 minutes walk from Buxton town centre. The lounge was extremely spacious and comfortable and the dining table was enormous! I would certainly go there again. Highly recommended.”
