“Perfect 90th birthday celebration at Wellwood Lodge”

person found this review helpful

We booked Wellwood Lodge for my parents 90th birthday celebration , a surprise family weekend gathering of 3 generations . We found the facilities to be a very high standard, catering for all ages and spotlessly clean. The dining room table was particularly impressive as it catered for 12 of us for our celebration meal. The living room was large enough for everyone to relax yet still be cosy. The bedrooms large and comfortable and the kitchen equipment faultless. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a large family gathering.

“A lovely house with a positive aspect.”

We booked this house for a family get together, since the youngest family members with a young child and another on the way lived close by. As soon as entered the house we became aware that it had a positive vibe to it and everyone commented on this. Having had many large houses for family gatherings over the years, this one fitted the bill perfectly. We particularly liked the conservatory linked to the Kitchen and of course the games room for the boys. Beds were all comfortable and the house was clean and well equipped. Walks (down hill) into town (5-10 minutes) and up hill into the beautiful scenery just around the corner. We enjoyed a trip to Castleton on the Saturday and on the Sunday listening to the brass band in Pavilion Gardens. We may well be back for another visit.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have just returned from a week's stay at Wellwood Lodge - we were attending a trade show in the area and found the property to be well maintained with large spacious rooms. The location is very central and just a few minutes walk into Buxton town centre. Will definitely return again and would highly recommend it.

“Fantastic property - can't wait to stay again!”
Reviewed 8 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 18 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.
