“A wonderful place, I have been recommending it to everyone since we got back”

The property is fitted to a very high standard, we were thrilled with it (and much relieved that we managed a lot of cooking without setting off the sensitive fire alarm!).

We were a large group with lots of children. There was plenty of room for all. The kids loved the bar area, the dining room is stunning - a great place to watch the sunsets. The layout is great, with most bedrooms set well away from the living areas.

Lots of good walking and activities for the kids in the area. We will be back.

“Excellent House for large gatherings”

This house is fabulous. It is in the middle of nowhere but providing you are happy with that it is great. Everything you could wish for. Modern inside and all bedrooms are kept away from the noise of the rest of the party. Everything you need is provided and it is great that you can all sit together at meal times. We thoroughly enjoyed my daughter's hen weekend there. A;l age groups had a great time and all asked how I managed to find such an ace house.

“Great party weekend”

We hired the Mermaid Inn for a hen party. We wanted something big, with potential space for fun and games and somwehere isolated - so we wouldn't keep any neighbours awake! The Mermaid was perfect for us. We had lovely large dinners overlooking the amazing scenery and spent a great night in the 'bar'. We've been told it was the best hen ever - and much of this is down to the wonderful Mermaid Inn.

“Perfect Venue for a large get together”

Went to The Mermaid with a group of friends. We have never visited the Peak District before, The Mermaid was easy to find and a perfect location for walks and a 'candle lit evening at Chatsworth House'. It is furnished to a very high standard, and the way the bedrooms are arranged you never feel that you are living on top of each other, and there are different areas downstairs to accommodate the TV watchers, the readers or the kareoke kings!! We took our dogs with us and found all the local pubs to be very dog friendly which is always a bonus.

“Perfect venue for a large group to spend time together under one roof.”

Fantastic venue. Clean and well equipped for large numbers. Lovely bedlinen and towels. Delighted to finaly find a venue large enough for our group of 33 (eight families) all under one roof. Everyone using all the bathrooms in the morning without any plumbing problems! Everyone sitting to one table for a meal. No shortage of glasses crockery and cutlery. The kitchen is equipped with everything required to cater for large numbers. The varied lounges allow for different activities to occur without feeling that anyone is missing. The sofas, chairs and furniture are top quality leather, it has a really lovely feel to it. The views are incredible. Cannot recommend this accomodation enough. Would love to return.
