“Brilliant”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Had a brilliant break with extended family and friends to celebrate a 60th birthday and can't wait to return. The owners of this beautiful property were extremely prompt and helpful with any of our needs. The facilities are excellent, spent all weekend in the pool, hot tub and sauna, and the more energetic used the gym. Everyone loved the warm pool including the two babies we had with us. Played many of the board games that were provided. Some went on the walks that were detailed in the information pack. There are plenty of things to do to occupy all ages. Will definitely book again.

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 1 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had an amazing weekend here from 13th to 16th November . Ages ranged from 16 to 86. Lots to do, kids were never out of the pool and hot tub. Beautiful garden although the time of year meant it wasn't at its best and couldn't be used. Great walks from the door, lovely pub a few steps up the road. This place really ticked all the boxes and we'll definitely consider staying again. Just one 'suggestion' which the owners may find useful - the downstairs entrance hall/sitting room seems way too cluttered, too many desks, tables and other occasional pieces of furniture. It felt a bit like sitting in a furniture showroom, hence we didn't use it, it was simply a 'walk through' area to get from a to b. However, this certainly isn't a deal breaker. All in all a top notch place to stay, it ticked the boxes and I'd recommend it to anybody.

“AWESOME”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This place is really amazing!!
We went for a weekend to celebrate a Golden Wedding Anniversary. There were 14 of us, including 4 children, ages 9-13). There was truly something to keep everyone comfortable, happy & occupied all weekend.
We received an extensive and comprehensive information pack from the owners in good time before our visit, so as to be able to plan well. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, and lived nearby.
The highlight was definitely the pool, spa & hot tub (not to mention the gym) -all keep to high standards with a feel of luxury. The children were occupied and happy the whole time - I have never seen so many floaty toys, rafts, balls in one pool - all provided. The pool was very warm throughout. It was a cold October weekend, but we felt we could have been abroad, lounging by the pool in our swimming costumes!
There were also board games in the lounge.
The house is very spacious - even more spacious than I was expecting from the photos. Plenty of room to all be together, or find somewhere to be on your own. Whole house was warm all weekend. Very pleasant, quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped, and large, with 2 ovens.
Plenty of places to walk and visit, though some of us didn't feel the need to leave the house all weekend, even the dog was happy. There is a children's outdoor play area nearby.
Wifi access wasn't very good, but that didn't bother me. Also, no steps in & out of pool, and floor a bit slippy, so grandma needed some help. But, apart from that, can't think of anything I would change.
The parents said 'Everything about this weekend has had a Wow-factor'! Everyone had a wonderful time and we didn't want to leave. The children want us to go back every year.
We would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much to the owners for a fantastic and very memorable weekend.

“Excellent family weekend”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just returned from a long weekend with family and friends. Large spacious house with room to accommodate 16 of us without feeling we were on top of each other. The highlight of the house for the younger members was the swimming pool and hot tub. They were in there til the early hours. There was enough seating for us all to gather around the wood burner in the evening playing games and around the dining table for meals. Ample cooking facilities and china, glassware etc. Good walks from door and a wonderful traditional pub 100 yds along the road. Hard to find a house this size with a pool so every chance we will return.

“Silver wedding anniversary trip”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Party of 12 made up of family and friends have just returned from a perfect week away to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. The house is very large and fully equipped with everything required to make it a home from home. It is ideally located for shopping, eating out and walking as we took 6 dogs between us all. Everyone enjoyed the pool, sauna and jacuzzi and this really makes the holiday as it's something different and not shared as with holidays when you go abroad etc. But the real stars are Tim & Marie, who couldn't of been more welcoming, the tour we had on arrival from Tim was just perfect, not long and drawn out but straight down to business so we could get ourselves in and settled. Nothing was to much trouble for Tim as on a couple of occasions we nipped next door after 09.00pm as we weren't sure about a couple of things and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning as it is great value for money and the hosts are exceptional! Thanks Tim & Marie for sharing your wonderful home.

“Ladies ”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had the most amazing weekend at The Gatehouse!! The place is just super with everything and more than you could possibly need. We were a large group of ladies celebrating a birthday so the space this house offers was just superb. The fact that it had a great pool, sauna, steam room and gym was a massive bonus plus the owner Tim was very helpful, friendly and extremely approachable about anything that we were unsure of . Will definitely go back, it's fantastic !!!

“Relaxed and generous hosts ..... And excellent value”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our family group consisted of a 14 - 84 age range and it is hard to say who enjoyed it more. There is plenty of living space to spread out .... We had a detailed thousand piece puzzle laid out for the whole week in the downstairs sitting area, without disruption. The open plan kitchen/sitting room worked really well and Ocado deliver which made self catering a breeze, especially as the kitchen is so well equipped. Pizza delivery option worked well too!
The swimming pool was warm and the hot tub was hot and both were well maintained. The hot tub was being drained as we left and refilled with fresh water for the next guests.
Previous family group holidays elsewhere have involved complicated rules and regulations, especially about recycling, but Tim's check in was all about making the most of the wonderful house and facilities. Little details such as pool towels, plentiful dishwasher tablets and a well stocked first aid kit show the generous nature of the hosts.
There is so much to do in the area ..... Cycling the tissington trail or carsington water, visiting national trust properties, popping in to the Holly Bush pub, looking round the North mill in Belper, or walks from the door ..... But it was a struggle to leave the gatehouse for long.
The only drawback is that almost every weekend is now booked out till the end of 2016 so we are looking for midweek dates to return next year.
Thanks tim and marie, for a really memorable family holiday.
