The house is absolutely wonderful - plenty of space for 12 of us (the living room is gigantic!) and all the amenities made our stay so easy and pleasurable. A fully kitted out kitchen (it literally had everything we could have needed), wi-fi for planning days out, luxurious comfortable beds and everywhere was spick and span when we arrived.
The garden outside was great for an evening BBQ and for relaxing in the sunshine, and the dining room provided plenty of space for lovely dinners for all 12 of us (the lazy susan was a great novelty!). The huge TV meant we could also enjoy watching films all together in the lounge. Hilary was extremely helpful in explaining everything we needed to know upon arrival and even recommended some nice places to eat; we felt very well looked after.
The location of the house is also fantastic - you can walk to the train station in about 10 minutes and the centre of Buxton in 15 minutes. It was wonderful to be able to enjoy the beautiful town without having to take the cars. Excellent walking and sightseeing in the surrounding area - the house is perfectly placed for a lovely break in the Peak District. All in all Wellwood Lodge surpassed all our expectations and for the weekly price was an unbelievable bargain. I highly recommend it and would definitely consider returning.
