“Fantastic property - can't wait to stay again!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Wellwood Lodge is a lovely, spacious, well maintained and very well appointed property. It is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Buxton for access to restaurants etc, and yet is also close to many of the great views within the Peak District.

It is ideal for a large family, a group of photographers, walkers or - as we were - just a group of friends wanting to chill.

I can't think of a single thing which was missing and have already recommended it to my photographer friends.

Highly recommended - but not for people with mobility problems as there is a steep path up to the front door from the road.

“Loads of space and at a great rate price, could happily accommodate 12 people”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We were meant to be 11 but in the end only 9 of us could make it. It was extremely spacious and would have been plenty had we been 12 people. With so many bedrooms I expected there to be at least one box room but that wasn't the case, all of the rooms were a good size. We were very satisfied with our stay and at such a reasonable price. I would highly recommend it and would go again. Thanks for a great stay.

“Large family celebration”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I just wanted to say what a wonderful weekend we spent at Wellwood Lodge this weekend. The house was absolutely perfect for our needs - the kitchen was incredibly well equipped, the fantastic dining table allowed everyone to eat together and the large room size helped us all feel like we were staying in a cosy home from home but not feeling like we were on top of each other. The beautiful walks around the area with our dogs were quite literally on the doorstep and the scenery was breath-taking, especially as the weather was so glorious!
Thank you so much and we look forwards to returning to Wellwood Lodge at some point in the future!

“Comfortable Home”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This large family home was easy to find and with plenty of space for 4 cars - 2 of which could be in a garage. The location was good with easy walking distance to Buxton as well as lovely walks for the dog. Everything we needed was in the house, and on arrival we were greeted and shown what was what etc. The bedrooms were of a good size - especially the one with the en suite - and if there is any criticism, it is that some of the mattresses were, in the opinion of those who slept in them, a little too soft. As we were a large group, there was plenty of space to either be together, or be in a different room if desired. For a group of 5 couples, 2 small children and one dog - perfect.

Thank you for reviewing our property. Pleased that you found it 'perfect' for your groups needs.
In our opinion there is nothing worse than a too hard mattress so to overcome this we supply toppers for our firmer mattresses, easily removed by the end user. We take guest comfort seriously!

“This provides the perfect venue for a family get together”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Having been invited to a wedding in Buxton we needed to find some weekend accommodation which would provide for three generations including two toddlers and a four month old baby, travelling from different parts of the country. Wellwood Lodge was perfect in that there were sufficient spacious bedrooms as well as generous living space, which gave ample opportunity for us all to have a relaxing and sociable time together. The large dining table is a real plus point and at no time did we feel cramped.

An added bonus was that the wedding reception was within walking distance of the house.

We definitely recommend this house for a short or longer break in a lovely area of the UK.
