"Lovely house for a big group to share-and very comfortable - the garden with the stream is lovely , but not safe to let kids or dogs out as stream is fast running and not fenced off."
The table tennis was great and we used it alot- it would have been fetter if the table football was downstairs rather than in a bedroom. Overall I would recommend as so comfy for a big group
Thank you for your lovely feedback and we are glad to hear your party enjoyed themselves . We would mention that the stream was fast running due to the heavy rainfall, but most children and parents really enjoy paddling in the stream along with their dogs. Property Owner
"We had a lovely weekend away."
The property was spacious and comfortable and we all enjoyed sitting round the table together. We particularly liked the big bath and the large beds. We all enjoyed playing Pooh sticks on the bridge just round the corner. We had a couple of concerns about safety to let you know about- the black railings outside on the decking are loose. One of our party nearly fell over as he lent on them. Some of the kitchen knives are in need of replacement. One has its tip missing. Another broke as I was using it. The blade snapped and flew off the handle. We were lucky it didn’t hurt anyone as there were children sitting at the breakfast bar at the time. We’ve left these knives on the windowsill. We also ran out of toilet rolls- there were a few half rolls in one of the bathrooms. But I think 2 or 3 rolls per bathroom would be reasonable to expect. Thank you for a lovely stay.
"Beautiful house and setting."
We enjoyed our stay immensely!
"Wow what a brilliant house to stay in ."
There was 12 off us and a dog . Plenty of room , beds were comfortable and big , kitchen big and well stocked with everything you need . Gardens great . Couldn't fault this property to stay in .
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Willow Brook."
The house was beautiful and perfect size for our group. The rooms were all spacious and maintained well. Paul and Jen were always available when we wanted to ask a question and went the extra mile by even welcoming us with some treats. We plan to definately visit this house in the future and hope to make many more memorable moments. All the best!!
"Beautifully appointed house immaculately clean with so much space for our family get together and coronation celebrations."
Willow Brook has best ‘kitchen equipment’ supplies we have ever seen in an holiday home, everything we needed and more. I (incorrectly) thought there was a problem with something, had to contact Paul who went above and beyond in trying to sort it out and was most gracious when I rang back to apologise for my mistake. If you want a property with lots of room, well equipped and in easy reach of local facilities I would not hesitate to recommend.
"House was in a great location for walking and going into town for restaurants and shops."
Good accommodation for 11 people and two dogs. Sky TV wasn't available. Some beds old and uncomfortable. Some quilts and pillows old and stained. Dishwasher didn't work properly. Back door didn't lock. Recycle and waste disposal information was out of date. Several light bulbs not working.
Thank you Gordon for your feedback on your stay at Willow Brook. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and sorry that you encountered some issues during your stay. We have reviewed your feedback and have: - updated guest information pack, ensuring recycling information is up to date; - checked every light and replaced the bulbs where needed; - Replaced the dishwasher; - Fixes the back door lock; - Checked every bed and replaced mattresses, pillows and the bedding where needed. Thank you for bringing these to our attention. We hope you and your family consider returning to visit us again soon. Best wishes - Willow Brook Property Owner
"This was our second visit to Willow Brook and we would highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting the area and needs a bigger property."
Very clean, welcoming and the added extra meant we didn’t think twice about booking it a second time. More than a home from home and this visit we had five generations and all catered for
"A wonderful place to stay, we really enjoyed it."
We had the whole family there for our 50th wedding anniversary. There was plenty to do for everybody both in the house and in the local area. Some excellent restaurants (although not on Mondays and Tuesdays - but then there's a Weatherspoons in town). The heating system took a bit of getting used to but it wasn't a problem. Altogether an excellent place to stay
"The property was amazing."
The facilities and the spacious rooms allowed us to have a wonderful Christmas.
"In the kitchen."
2 or 3 more medium sized saucepans would have been useful (instead of half a dozen frying pans). Also the gas hob seemed to have a mind of its own, and was often difficult to light, especially after it had been used and you wanted to relight it. This applied to all the rings. (The ring would ignite but go out when the knob was released) Not sure what can be done about it, but the creaking from the flooring in the 2nd floor bedrooms, is excessively load when heard from the bedrooms below. Guests walking about in the top floor rooms sound as though they’re in the room with you during the early hours. Finally, it would be helpful to change the bag in the vacuum cleaner in the utility room (Henry) We used this several times and the smell from the collection of pet hair is overpowering. Apart from these minor criticisms, we had a most enjoyable stay, and the property is ideal for family celebrations.
"We have shared with the owners an area on the patio re railings, which need attention."
Otherwise very comfortable close to Glossop, and well Presented property for families. Good facilities
"Excellent property, with facilities that catered for everyone's needs."
The only minor issue was the recycling dustbin was already full when we arrived and needs to be emptied weekly or double in its capacity.
"Wonderful cottage with a well stocked kitchen and plenty to do for guests of various ages."
Would highly recommend and we would book again.
"Amazing house and the best weekend ever!"
Bedrooms were spacious and super comfortable and clean. Plenty of space for games and everyone to just relax and do their own things. Location is perfect little walk into town centre.
"Very clean and well equipped."
Perfect space for 12 of us and 2 dogs! Great location and within walking distance of bars , restaurants and great walks. Would definitely return!
"Extremely comfortable stay, we were fortunate to have good weather and able to walk some of the outstanding countryside."
Willow Brook is ideally placed.
"We had a perfect stay at Willow Brook!"
A family of 11 including one baby and ranging in ages from 1 - 59 plus two dogs. The house is extremely comfortable with ample room for everyone to have their own space or congregate together. The kitchen / dining area is set up perfectly to all eat and cook together but the star of the show for us was the table tennis room. Thank you for allowing us a weekend of eating, drinking, singing dancing and making memories. Quick and efficient communication from owner and the single only con we could think of is that there was no pepper!
"Very happy with our stay at Willow Brook despite a week of pretty awful weather."
Three generations well accommodated in this lovely big house for a delayed 70th birthday celebration - lots of space for games including hide and seek! Excellent kitchen/diner for sharing family meals. Very clean - one small complaint- large bed on top floor hard and uncomfortable. Would definitely return.
"We had an absolutely amazing stay at Willow Brook to celebrate a family 60th Birthday Party."
The Pool table was fantastic, all rooms very spacious, the property was extremely clean and tidy.
"REALLY LOVELY HOUSE, PLENTY OF SPACE AND ACTIVITIES."
"We all really enjoyed our stay!"
Plenty of room for all of us to enjoy time together! Lovely selection of rooms, very cosy and lovely decor! We are already planning our next visit.
"We hired this property to celebrate my Father in Laws 90th birthday, we had 4 generations of the family together."
The property was an excellent base for us all, catered for all our needs. Immaculate throughout, couldn't have wished for a nicer place. We would very much like to book the property again some time soon.
"The house is beautiful & total wow factor when you walk in ."
Lovely open plan kitchen with large dining table & corner sofa to all sit together . All bedrooms very comfortable & large . Very well equipped & we loved the table tennis . The area is lovely & we didn’t have to venture far for lovely walks & Glossop a lovely place , highly recommend
"The house was spotlessly clean."
The layout was perfect for our family get together, providing lots of space and different areas to gather in smaller groups or as a whole party. The kitchen was well equipped for a large group and the dining table perfect for 12. Table tennis and table football were well used and enjoyed. Excellent communication with the owner.
"Absolutely wonderful house - spotlessly clean, loads of communal space (2 lounges and a huge kitchen/diner/sitting room too)."
Bedrooms all beautifully furnished and decorated, kitchen well equipped, appliances clean. We had a couple of minor issues that were quickly addressed (within 10 minutes!) by the owners who were straight round. Great for dogs - ours had a lovely time and we appreciated the little touches of bowls and bags provided, as well as the utility room for drying off muddy paws. We will definitely come again for future extended family gatherings. Might need to practice our table tennis and table football to beat the kids next time!
"A lovely, spacious holiday home, clean and tidy with plenty of room in a great location - we will definately book again at some point!"
"Willow Brooke was perfect for our stay."
The house is lovely, warm and welcoming and quiet, perfect after a long day of walking. It felt very much like a home. We joked about it being 'the house that kept on giving' as it was so well stocked up with everything we needed to be able to enjoy cooking in the evening. We had brought our own equipment for our homemade pizza night as never expected the kitchen to have a rolling pin, a pizza cutter and pizza stones! We were able to wash and dry dirty clothes easily and collapse into cozy warm beds at night. The owners responded quickly to any questions and responded immediately to a small issue we had with the house. We look forward to going back.
"This was an excellent house for our family group of 12 plus baby."
Very spacious and well equipped. The games room with table tennis and table football were well used! The children want us to return next year...which we may well do.
"The house is huge!"
A great space for a large family group. The bedrooms are spacious & well equipped, as are the kitchen & bathrooms. Very impressed with the owner’s attention to detail in the house: beautiful furniture & furnishings. Easily room for our 3 big cars in the driveway too. Table tennis tournaments in the conservatory were a daily activity for all! Another great space, with a wonderful view of the trees along the stream by the garden. Sitting out on the decking in the evening with the sound of the stream was so relaxing. We didn’t have the best weather unfortunately, but made the most of exploring the area when we did. Despite COVID-19, we were able to enjoy ourselves out and about. We had one meal out at the Hare & Hounds in Simmondley village, only a short distance from Willow Brook. The service and quality of food were excellent and we were impressed with what they had in place rē Track & Trace, social distancing etc. Other than this one occasion, we cooked in or got a takeaway (which all delivered on time too!). All in all a fabulous week spent in the Peak District. Highly recommend a stay there.
"The house is beautifully furnished."
We were a reduced group due to the pandemic but even if all 12 people had attended' there were several comfortable places around the house where you could find a quiet place to read. The back patio is a suntrap and even in March we were able to enjoy the outdoors for a few hours. The ping pong table was a great hit with everyone. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at the house. Thank you David.
"This place is amazing we had a family get together with 8 adults 2 children and one toddler."
(which we all enjoyed)There was more than enough space for us all. The house is situated in a good quiet area but with a lot of things to do just a short drive away.
"Lovely House, the property was very clean when we got there and the owners also left some treats, biscuits and chocolates and there was milk in the fridge."
Much appreciated. Would definitely book again. Loved that the Christmas decorations were up as well
"Really great house for 11 friends to get together an annual Christmas celebration."
We chatted that much we didn't even use the ping pong table and most of the time was spent in the fantastic kitchen area. We even requested that Paul sort out the boxing for us on the sky account which he did without issue and we were able to transfer the cost to him. Might be back next year!
"Amazing place to stay and a great location for exploring the Peak District."
House was very well equipped making our stay very comfortable. Loved the ping pong table! Highly recommended.
"We were a group of 12 - ages from 10 years old up to 89 years old plus 8 month old baby."
Accommodation was excellent, clean and warm, it was so spacious that we did not feel on top of each other, the table tennis was a hit with several nail biting tournaments. Would definitely recommend this lovely house it is even better than in the photos and we all look forward to returning.
"A superb property which was beautifully presented, well laid out and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay."
We would happily book to return in the future.
"The house is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed our weekend celebrating my husbands 40th birthday."
There was lots of room and the kids were thrilled with the table tennis table and football table. There were just a few small things that may help to improve a stay for your future guests.... There were no additional bin bags for when the kitchen bin was full. There was only 1 pint glass which caused an issue amongst the beer drinkers
"A fantastic house and very clean."
Like home from home
"Needs mirrors by electric plugs to dy your hair properly,and a tv system that you don’t have to watch the same channel in different rooms,( unless we didn’t understand how to do it !"
"A beautiful spacious house with large rooms and plenty of room for everyone."
The table tennis was a huge hit, as was the football table (thank you for those). Excellent facilities and parking for 4 cars. Very convenient place for walking situated on the outskirts of this lovely Peak District town. All amenities close by. An excellent place to stay.
"Superb house in quiet secluded location."
"The property was huge and felt very homely!"
All of the bedrooms were a great size and we had everything we needed there! Would definitely be returning soon!
"It was a fantastic property in a lovely quiet location."
There was plenty to keep us entertained, and we even had the latest octogenarian playing table tennis. It was an ideal property to have a large family gathering.
"Lovely house, great location"
"Very comfortable property and exactly as described."
We were three generations and the space suited us very well. I would not hesitate to recommend Willow Brook to anyone.
"We had a great time at Willow Brook, a beautiful home in a truly lovely setting."
The facilities could not be faulted. We were eight adults and four children with plenty of space and no queues for the bathroom. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
"We had a lovely weekend staying at Willow Brook in Glossop."
The house was clean, there was plenty of space and was in a perfect location for walking in the Peak District. Our only slight recommendation would be for the dishwasher to be improved as it did not seem to clean all the dishes properly. Otherwise a fantastic stay and would love to return again!
"Absolutely fantastic house and well worth a visit for a family get together."
Wouldn't hesitate booking it again.
"What can you say about such a fantastic huge property."
Loved it from the moment we walked through the door, beautiful rooms. There were 9 adults and 2 children in our party and we could get lost in the house so much space. Lovely touch milk, coffee, tea and biscuits left out which were very well received after a long journey. Lovely area nice walk to a beautiful park. Very friendly pub just up the road, large Tesco near by. Would we return? in a heart beat.
"As a family 12 of us and a Dog visited Willow Brook for a long weekend and had a spectacular time celebrating my Mum's 60th Birthday with the age ranges of 4-85."
Everyone found the house to be welcoming and finished to a high standard with everything we could have needed for our stay. The House is a short 10-minute walk into the centre of Glossop and just a short drive from the motorway. We will certainly bear Willow Brook in mind for future occasions!
"The house was beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice, it's such a huge house."
It's spacious, clean, and has everything you need! We were blown away by all the rooms and found that even with 12 of us we had so much space. The location is great for getting in to Glossop, and although the weather stopped us going out walking, there are lots of walks you can do if the weather is on your side. I would recommend this to anyone! We hope to go back in the future.
"First Christmas ever away, four generations all under one roof."
.. house was warm, clean and so spacious, didn’t feel crowded at all. Location was perfect, short drive enabled lovely walks. So much to explore definitely will return! Willow Brook is a beautiful house and I congratulate the owner on getting it more than just right.
"Absolutely stunning cottage, we used it for a team meeting and our Christmas team treat, great to all be able to cook together and chill and relax."
"Just what we expected and gave us everything we needed."
Finished to a good spec, comfortable beds, still cosy for a large house. Great property for a family birthday celebration.
"Upstairs heating controls were a bit complicated to operate."
Although full typed instructions were provided.
"Stunning property in a lovely location."
We didn't want to leave! Would highly recommend.
"Willow Brook met our family needs exceptionally well - i."
E. great bedrooms for adults and children, I.T. facilities and Table Tennis a real hit, kitchen layout and fixtures all we could need. House location worked well - the kids could get to Manchester easily and perfect for us to explore Peak District. Key box entry worked really well.
"We had the most enjoyable stay at Willowbrook."
All of the bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. The choice of three sitting areas was most welcomed by our family of seven adults, two babies and two dogs ☺️ Brilliant location for exploring surrounding areas.
"Fantastic house with amazing facilities."
I had a fab time here with 11 friends and there was room for everyone. Would definitely book again!

About the location
Buxton 14 miles.
The bustling, former mill town of Glossop sits in the north west of Derbyshire, surrounded by magnificent scenery in the Peak District. The town has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a golf course with a pay-per-play scheme. Nearby, Manor Park was once the grounds of Glossop Hall, which belonged to the Dukes of Norfolk. Today it provides a wonderful spot for a picnic in the summer, with bowling greens, a semi-natural woodland, a children’s play area and tennis courts. The town of Glossop is also ideally situated for exploring the nearby Peak District National Park, with many attractions for walkers, cyclists and tourists. These include the peaceful village of Hayfield, less than five miles away and popular with walkers due its close proximity to Kinder Scout. A little further afield, Edale is the start of the Pennine Way and also caters well for tourists with its own collection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. As well as its magnificent scenery, the Peak District has many other attractive places to visit, including Chatsworth House, the spa town of Buxton and its majestic gardens and architecture. Visit the famous Blue John show caves at Castleton, the mining museum at Matlock and the Derwent Valley reservoirs, where The Dambusters practised low-level flying in World War II. 15 miles away, only half an hour by train, is Manchester with all its big city amenities and attractions. Here, you will find the United and City football stadiums, an abundance of high street and boutique shops, theatres, restaurants, a concert hall and a vibrant night life. With so much to see, do and visit in the surrounding area, you are sure of a fun-filled holiday!
