Wellwood Lodge
Ranked #11 of 20 Speciality Lodging in Buxton
Reviewed 25 April 2011

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.

Thank you so much for your enthusiastic comments, it is great to read that you and your friends had such a good time and we supplied such a perfect venue for you. It was nice that you could spend the full week at the house, and as you say it works out at extremely good value used in this way. I hope we can welcome you back before too long.

Wellwood Lodge is less than 10 minutes walk from the centre of Buxton, a historic and picturesque town. The house is huge, with one ensuite and several double/twin rooms with comfy beds. There is a dining room, large living room, a well-equipped kitchen, light conservatory and a garden. We loved the lazy Susan on the dining room table! And for workaholics the free wi-fi is great for catching up with emails.

I'd recommend this house for a group of friends, several couples, or a large family. The Lodge is very close to the train station, and there are many beautiful walks from the house, or a short car ride away.

Wellwood Lodge is furnished extremely well, feeling very homely and welcoming. There is lots of space, allowing for 'quiet time' in the conservatory or games in the cellar.

It catered for all our needs - accommodating all of us easily around the table in the dining room.

It's location is great - able to walk into Buxton or use it as a base to explore the area.

Wish we could have stayed longer than our weekend break in this lovely house. It is perfect for a family/friends get-together with plenty of space everywhere. The lounge is comfortable and very spacious and the large, square dining table is excellent. It had everything we could possible need and made staying indoors on a wet and windy day a pleasure!
