  • "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 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!

  • "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.

    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.

    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!

    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

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!
