House is in a wonderful location with beautiful views over surrounding hills. The house is very well furnished and extremely comfortable. The bar area (it used to be a public house) is great fun with a pool table and bar football, the kitchen is very well equipped and the dining room has amazing views. Will definitely return - a highly enjoyable stay.
This group of 34 people holidays together every year, and this is our 11th year. We come from all over the UK, and the most important feature is to all be under the same roof. The Mermaid was perfect, the right size for us, a secluded location with fantastic views, and lots to do, inside and out within a reasonable distance. Highlights were Jodrell Bank, cycling on the Tissington Trail, Lyme Park (unfortunately without Colin Firth) and climbing the Roaches. The facilities were excellent, the dining area was amazing, and being able to eat all together was a real treat. We'll be back!
After an extensive search across the whole country, the Mermaid Inn was our first choice for our joint birthday celebrations. The location, layout and finish of the place is fantastic for a party and all 34 of us agreed it was perfect for our needs.
We had a BBQ on the massive BBQ on the Friday, then all helped out to produce an amazing curry night on Saturday, where we all sat down around the table and ate like kings! Then we push the tables back and danced the night away.
In the midst of all this, we also took a short walk over the beautiful hills to the 'Mermaid Pool' for an amazing wild swim.
I can not recommend this place enough! Thanks to the owners for setting it up so beautifully, and to everyone who came to the party... thanks for the memories!

The place is amazing. Isolated but by the road at the same time. Huge and can easily accommodate 35 people. The view from the dining room is spectacular. Inside the house there’s a pool table, a table football, 3 sitting room areas and 12 or so bedrooms. Bedrooms are separated from the other areas of the house so noise is never an issue if you are having a party. There’s a little lake nearby (20 mins walk) and we had a quick swim in there.

The property is fitted to a very high standard, we were thrilled with it (and much relieved that we managed a lot of cooking without setting off the sensitive fire alarm!).
We were a large group with lots of children. There was plenty of room for all. The kids loved the bar area, the dining room is stunning - a great place to watch the sunsets. The layout is great, with most bedrooms set well away from the living areas.
Lots of good walking and activities for the kids in the area. We will be back.
