With a visit from the Canadian contingent, we needed a place where the whole family could get together and spend some quality time together. Quarnford Lodge proved to be perfect for this (see descriptions by other reviewers). We were a party of 21, ranging in age from 2 to 93 years. It turned out to be an extremely wet and windy weekend, but there was so much space and things to do (snooker, table tennis etc.) that everyone was happy to stay in the house and 'visit', which was the object of the get-together! We'd all like to do it again, but perhaps on a sunny weekend!
In total 17 of us vissiting ...aged from 6-73. Could not fault the place. Something for everyone. Fab room's...fantastic kitchen....and that fire....so nice just to sit and watch.
Plenty to do in the area from walking to go karting.
We will be going again.
We stayed over the Easter weekend for a 40th birthday gathering - 10 adults and 7 children (mostly between 6 and 2 years old). It's a great venue for this sort of event: all the bedrooms except one are en suite; the dining table is big enough to seat everyone; there are enough sofas to for all; there's a separate small sitting room which we turned into the kids' playroom for the weekend; and the kitchen is astonishingly well supplied for a self-catering property - we never ran out of glasses, mugs or plates (and had the two dishwashers running pretty constantly). Everything was in good condition and tastefully decorated. The outside space is relatively limited (but with a huge barbecue and outside seating if the weather is kind) and the house is right on the A53, so there is some traffic noise. We would definitely stay there again if er can find a suitable occasion.
Second time visiting Quarnford lodge for our annual family reunion. Great kitchen with 2 dishwashers and al the utensils you need and more. Very quick responses to emails and also one shower hose broke whilst we were there which was fixed within hours. The fireplace is lovely and cosy, it's great to have open plan dining and living area so the group can all be together but still doing different things. You can push the dining room tables to the side and play table tennis which was enjoyed by all ages. Slight road noise from rooms at the front of the property but it didn't spoil our sleep. We have booked again for next year.
Just returned from a brilliant weekend at Quarnford Lodge for my sisters Hen Party.
The lodge is just perfect for larger parties of people, with 10 en-suite rooms, some double, twin & some slept 4 people.
There were 24 of us altogether & there was plenty of room for all. The bedrooms are all neutral, clean & bright with gorgeous views of Flash. The kitchen is suitable for the number of people, with two cookers, dishwashers & fridges! Perfect!
We also played pool over the weekend, & the dining room was just the right size for our Saturday night disco night!
I can't recommend Quarnford Lodge enough, it would be perfect for a large family Christmas & if the need arises in the future we would definitely rebook. Pete, the owner, was always very helpful & responded to all my email queries straight away.
