“Excellent Place for a celebration and family gathering”
Reviewed 3 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

My family and I stayed at Wellwood Lodge for a long weekend to celebrate my mothers 60th Birthday. I could not have found a better place to do this, Wellwood Lodge was certanily geared up for hosting a party of 14 which included two young children. The Garden looked perfect for a summer party, however we had snow but was still enjoyable to sit in the morning sun. We walked into Buxton each day which only took 15 minutes which was perfect with two little ones. The house was fully equiped and we did'nt need to bring anything except food! We had caters in from Natural Fayre who i highly recommend for great food and service which was suggested by Wellwood. All in all we had a great time there and would deffinately go back.

Thank you so much for reviewing your stay at Wellwood Lodge. We were so pleased to read that it was such a success with both the venue and the recommended caterer for your Mum's special occasion. We try our best to meet our guests wishes, and to us delivering customer service is as important as providing a venue that meets or exceeds all expectations.

“Wonderful house”
Reviewed 3 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We have just returned from Wellwood Lodge after spending a week there. The house is very spacious but warm and welcoming and we felt at home from day 1. The lounge was a fabulous size for our large family (3 generations from 2yrs-62yrs) the square dining room table with the lazy susan was great for family meals. The kitchen has everything you need and is very well equiped.The fridge freezer is large but the cellar and outside space provided additional storage space for our very large shopping delivery. The conservatory was lovely and the games room was a great extra which everyone enjoyed. The bedrooms are large and comfy and having 4 bathrooms was a real bonus. The direct telephone to the owner/manager is very reassuring too. Buxton is a lovely town with good shops and the pavillion gardens and farmers market are definately worth a visit.We wouldn't hesitate in recommending or returning to the house - we even booked our return visit while we were still there!

Excellent choice of venue for a reunion, comfortable, warm and well equipped. Owners added the personal touch, which was appreciated, and had clearly acted on any comments left in their visitors book.
Great location with walks from the house, and easy access into the town

“Fabulous property for large family gathering!”
Reviewed 31 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We had a fantastic time in Buxton - the house was easily big enough to accommodate three generations of our family and the standard of equipment and furnishings was very high. A warm welcome from the manager and comprehensive instructions for central heating and recycling etc made things very easy for us all! There was plenty of space for those of more advanced years to distance themselves from the toddling one year-old, and the lounge was perfect for getting everyone together.

The games room was a nice addition - yes, the floor's a bit uneven and playing snooker was sometimes more luck than judgement, but in our opinion that just added to the fun element! We certainly spent quite a bit of time down there...

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday - we were lucky with the weather but there was plenty to entertain us indoors had it been more inclement. Thank you!

“Great, well equipped house for a large get together”
Reviewed 10 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We booked the house for a long weekend for a family get together. It was all as described on the website and even with 12 of us, we never felt cramped. We cooked meals without problem and found the bedrooms spacious and comfortable. We had a minor confusion on booking dates but it only lasted a couple of hours on the first day.

“Superb house, suited our every need”
Reviewed 3 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Had a fabulous 3 night stay here at Wellwood Lodge. We travelled from Southampton for a family wedding nearby, and with such a large extended family we were delighted to be able to find somewhere where a large selection of us could stay! Well presented and equipped, spacious, clean and modern, we did not want for anything and I cannot recommend this highly enough. We have another family wedding in Buxton in 2013....we'll be back!

“Everything you could possibly need!!!!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We've just spent s lovely weekend in this spacious home ideal for large groups. Being able to all dine together round one table was very important to us and the large, square table made our mealtimes very sociable occasions. The Lazy Susan caused great amusement.
Every bedroom is a good size with plenty of storage. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped.

I fully recommend a stay at this holiday home.
