“A prefect house for a country visit”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed at Old Beams for a hen-do in the Peak District. The house was perfect for us - large with a huge dining table, a great garden and lots of space for food and drinks, the kitchen was well stocked.

The caretaker next door was very sweet and while we were out closed the windows for us as there was some sandblasting going on across the road.

The owners were quick to respond and let us have a late checkout which was really appreciated, especially as the weather was so good!

The house was easy to find and had ample car parking space.

We'll visit again!

“Wonderful family get together”
Reviewed 18 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My husband and I, our three children, their partners and teenage children spent a fantastic extended weekend here.
My son and his partner were visiting fron Australia , so it was ideal for a family get together.
There is loads of room for the family to split off and do different things or all sit round playing silly games.the kitchen was amazing, plenty of space to cook meals.
We had our 'Sunday Roast ' on sat evening , after a quick visit to the local pub.
The huge dining room was more than big enough, and in the summer with the doors open would be a wonderful room to sit in the evening.
The garden has lots of different areas and a wonderful play area for children with climbing frame etc. We had a walk upto waterfall on Sunday which delighted my sons Australian wife, a real red working phone box ! And an old water pump!
The house is well stocked and immaculate, the owner is extremely helpful should you need anything. There is one bedroom on the ground floor so if you have trouble with stairs that is an option. Would I go back , in a heart beat.... I just wish I could afford to buy it!!!
Oh I nearly forgot the piano.... We had a weekend of my grand daughter practicing moonlight sonata . And lots of off road parking .

“Fabulous house ensured fantastic family get together”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have returned from an amazing 5 night stay at this wonderful house.
From the moment we arrived we felt completely at home - we all wished it could have been our home!!
We had planned the holiday to see daughter and son from our families who were making a whistle stop return to the UK fromAustralia, enroute to a wedding in Tuscany. We booked the house so that all families could all be together from different parts of the UK and to allow those who were working to still be able to join in at the weekend.
This lovely house has 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms which provided privacy as well as being part of the bigger group.
The kitchen was extremely well equipped, Sky TV in all downstairs rooms, local pub, playing fields so we could break from watching the Euros to playing a bit of our own challenge match - making sure we sky plussed the Saturday afternoon match to catch up later!!
Garden was wonderful and tranquil, but the best part is the magnificent conservatory dining room. At one point during our stay we had 14 of us at meal times and the dining table was more than adequate for all our needs and is such a perfect room.
Ideal location, supermarkets a few miles away in either direction and bicycle hire for the Minifold Way within a short walk (15 minutes).

A wonderful break with lovely family and friends made more comfortable and enjoyable in such a lovely house.

“Fantastic holiday home for a family break.”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A house with real character, a garden providing interest for all the children, ages 7-12, and lovely relaxation for the adults. Kitchen well equipped, 3 fridges and a freezer. The conservatory is amazing, a brilliant room for family meals. Close to beautiful Dove dale. Bike hire in the village, the Manifold trail is a great ride for all the family.
