  • "Our third stay at this beautiful property."

    We were welcomed with a selection of cakes which were beautiful and the lodge had everything we needed for a weeks stay. Jazzy as always was very helpful and responsive and nobody wanted to come home. We made full use of the log burner and aga this visit. Hopefully we be back for our fourth visit soon.

    It really did feel like a home. Plenty of space for 3 adult couples, two kids and an infant. We had everything we needed and it was a perfect base to start off our wedding celebrations!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Butler's Lodge, which is a truly lovely property - indeed, I don't think the description did the setting justice, as the view from the property over the field at the back (particularly at sunset) and the little wood next door (which the kids loved to play in) were amazing."

    It was all very clean and nice too. A few little niggles which would improve it further (but didn't detract from the stay) was that the toilet in the second bedroom en suite was tricky to flush (the handle needed wiggling afterwards to stop water pouring out continually), and also it would have been nice to have more than one toilet roll per bathroom as it meant we needed to go out and buy more during our stay - for this level of property I'd have expected shower gel and kitchen roll to be provided too, for a truly luxurious home from home feel. But overall it was lovely and we would book again :-)

    I particularly appreciated the helpful and speedy response Jazzy gave to my queries/requests and also the thoughtful way the cottage was made more special for Christmas - the tree and decorations, and the welcome pack all contributed to a feeling of home from home. My husband also had a lot of fun cooking with the Aga! I am sure that any guests would enjoy a stay here.

    It is a beautiful cottage & well appointed with all the home comforts. As we stayed during a really cold week (-5), Jazzy was very helpful & ensured the heating was turned up to a comfortable level for even those in their 80's, plus the fires were an added bonus. A lovely hamper was left for us with a selection of Xmas treats & we appreciated the festive tree with lights in the sitting room. We had a wonderful week with family & we would certainly recommend a stay here.

  • "Butlers Lodge is perfect."

    It’s in a quiet, private location .The scenery is absolutely beautiful. Walks are literally on the doorstep but also the surrounding villages have enough amenities should you require some retail therapy or food shopping. For us this was the perfect combination. The Lodge itself has everything you should need. The open kitchen/ diner really works if you are a large group wanting to cook, chat, or simply play games together. The living room fits you all in comfortably and having 4 bedrooms with access to a separate bathroom for each bedroom is definitely a huge plus if like us you are going as couples . I would highly recommend to anyone and I would definitely go back.

    Never tired of the wonderful views as we drove down the lane to the property. The property was spacious, clean and catered for all our needs. Has to be said that the main bedroom is amazing. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated. We were able to cycle and walk directly from the Lodge, which was a bonus. The position, away from busy roads, meant that the children were able to go and explore in safety. Lots to see and do around the area and we managed to visit Bakewell, Matlock, Dovedale, Carsington water, Chatsworth, Ashbourne and Tissington. We were blessed with good weather on our visit and sitting outside watching the sun go down over dinner was one of my favorite times. All in all, a great place to stay. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked to go back again!

    The house is beautiful and offers all the facilities and equipment needed for a comfortable stay. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch too. We had a lovely evening with the firepit and marshmallows up on the terrace when we had a clear sky to watch the stars. The only slight niggle was the speed bump as you come down the drive, it was nearly impossible to get over it without scraping the underside of your car! Just go as slow as physically possible to get over it in tact

  • "Electricity cut out several times during our stay."

    We had to use a step ladder to reset the fuse. Not everyone is comfortable doing this. I would expect an immediate electrician investigation. The en-suite shower to the rear (2nd) bedroom was very poor. Frequently a dribble & worryingly either very hot or scolding - would not let a child or elderly person use. The location is great and general atmosphere excellent. I suggest lowering the speed bump part way down the drive. Even easing my car over at 2 mph it caught the underside, surely it isn’t necessary on that track? Generally a good stay but another case of the owners not staying there and sampling their own product to eliminate the glitches

There was an issue with the electrical trip switch flicking off on on 3 separate occasions but jazzy was very quick to help and advise.

It was so cosy with the underfloor heating, we hardly wanted to explore further, particularly as it was cold and misty outside for a lot of the time. The property is fabulous, with everything you need and space to relax. The only minor problem was out of Jazzy's hands, in that the internet was down for the majority of our stay but she kept badgering BT who eventually sorted the problem.

The property

Mayfield 2.1 miles.

Resting on Calwich Abbey Estate a few miles from the bustling market town of Ashbourne, is the delightful historic lodge.

The owners have gone to extreme lengths to transform this former butler's lodge into a stunning holiday home of the highest standard.

Fitted with quality furnishings and appliances, this makes the very best place for friends or families looking to explore this wonderful rural area.

Entering the property, you will be greeted by a kitchen with light units and sleek worktops, providing a range of modern appliances, including an electric AGA cooker.

A utility room provides a washing machine and tumble dryer for your convenience.

There is a further dining room with plenty of seating to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal, with the delightful woodburning stove providing that extra bit of warmth during the cooler months.

Walk through to the sitting room boasting a huge wall-mounted TV, framed by two sofas where you can gather to watch some of your favourite shows, or let the TV hum in the background whilst you catch up on the day's events.

This room has lovely large windows offering an abundance of natural light along with a large wood burning fire.

The property benefits from four double bedrooms, with two boasting their own en-suites.

The master bedroom has its own dressing room, where a travel cot can easily rest, whilst the main room has an original 1970s bed with speakers and lights integrated, making it the perfect space for some late night reading or listening to soft music to lull you to sleep.

This room was originally the courtyard but has been renovated into a bedroom and still has some of its original exposed stone walls, adding a wealth of character to this exceptional property.

Choose from a family bathroom with a roll-top bath, or a shower room to prepare for your day in style.

Settled in a rural area, this property has access to a number of trails for walking and cycling opportunities, particularly popular in the nearby Peak District National Park.

A few miles away is the market town of Ashbourne with its traditional eateries if you don't fancy cooking one evening, and a selection of independent shops and supermarkets for picking up those last-minute essentials.

Within driving distance, you will find Alton Towers theme park for those adventure-seekers to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon on the thrilling rides.

Make sure you visit the nature reserve a Dovedale, known for its rock formations, Carsington Water is also well-worth the trip, popular for a variety of watersports.

Butlers Lodge is a wonderful choice for a countryside break for families.

Ashbourne 2 miles.

The small village of Mayfield peacefully lies at the southern end of the Peak District National Park, set amidst stunning scenery and offering great walking and cycling opportunities. The nearby market town of Ashbourne with its eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys and quaint coaching inns is something of a haven for antique hunters, offering many great antique stores, as well as a variety of good pubs and restaurants. With the Dove and Manifold Valleys also close by and both Carsington Water and Alton Towers within a 20 minute drive, this great location offers relaxation and enjoyment all year round.
