"We just spent a wonderful week at Woodland Lodge with our 2no chihuahua,s."
It is a beautiful property, with excellent facilities, & a lovely secure garden. Good location for visiting the national park, lovely part of the world, excellent walks. We would definitely book this property again. Thanks Lawrence.
"Beautiful, very well presented barn conversion on the owners property."
Lovely views across the valley from the hot tub. Very quiet, despite being near a railway line. We needed a quiet, restful week and we got it. The accommodation is beautifully decorated with lots of little niches dotted around. It had everything needed for a week away, (though could possibly do with an outside tap or sink to clean dirty boots and dogs). I would highly recommend this property
Great location. Smashing hosts.
"Absolutely perfect in every way."
The directions to the property are very good (do not rely on the postcode for Satnav!) The lodge is very spacious, beautfully appointed and comfortable. Kitchen is well-equipped (washing machine and freezer is available on-site but not in the lodge). Hot-tub is divine, perfect temperature and well-maintained. The garden is safe and secure. Finally, the hosts Jo & Ian are fantastic.
"Absolutely loved our stay everything we hoped for."
Cottage lovely location nice and quite and hot tub fantastic. Hosts brilliant. All in all a fantastic break away would highly recommend.
"The whole experience was fantastic and the cottage is absolutely beautiful ,really enjoyed our stay it was really relaxing!"
Just what we imagined.
"Fabulous old stone barn conversion with loads of space to relax."
Tons of character. Quality of all services (heating / hot water / shower/ TV/ wifi / external lighting / kitchen etc) was first class. Bed a bit soft and bouncy for our taste but that is very much an individual preference. Hot tub fabulous.... really professional installation with lovely frame / roof surround with built in "fairy lights". A real treat. Good walks through the woods from the cottage itself. Also up to the runed manor house (Maps / walk guides would have been a welcome addition). Very high quality food served at The Dog at Prentice (5 minute drive). Wonderful, relaxing stay
"We stayed at the beginning of Sept 2021."
Ian & Jo were lovely hosts and our stay absolutely lovely.. There are loads of nice walks without or without a four legged friend and the food served at local (recommended) pubs excellent. Woodland Lodge is also a great base to explore across the peaks and Derbyshire/Notts generally. Great facilities especially the hot tub which was perfect at the end of a long day. Would definitely recommend Woodland to anyone & would love to stay again at some point.
"Lovely location The comfiest bed ever All in all a relaxing break"
"Wonderful property, very welcoming hosts!"
Well situated and the hot tub was superb! Highly recommended.
"Beautiful accommodation in a truly wonderful setting."
Ian and Jo are fantastic host's and the cottage was so clean and well kept. Amazing walks from the doorstep and a huge fully enclosed garden for the dogs to run and play in. We had the best week and would definitely book again. A perfect holiday.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay welcome basket of goodies on arrival Jo and Ian were the perfect hosts we had extra visitors 3 wasps nests in the eaves and attic space l panicked as allergic to wasp stings but Jo and Ian were very prompt in getting the Wasp Busters in the next day !"
So panic over , Loved the Hot Tub so relaxing l must see about getting one ha ha our Little Dog Dottie loved Sunny the pony and Meg who is amazing with her yellow ball wouldn’t hesitate in returning as soon as we can Xx
"Lovely cottage, very homely and comfy"
"Lovely, large, stone barn conversion in a beautiful countryside setting, with all the facilities needed for a week in and around the Peak District including a hot tub in the private fully-enclosed garden."
The owners are very friendly, welcoming & relaxed. Although the cottage is south east of the peaks, all of the Peak District is within easy reach, and there are local footpaths directly from the cottage. We loved it & would happily return & will recommend it to friends & family.
"Superb accommodation, the owners are friendly and extremely helpful."
Very peaceful and cosy, we loved the hot tub and garden. There are some lovely walks nearby. Would not hesitate to recommend
Fantastic hosts. Thoroughly recommend
"Really lovely stay at a beautiful, spacious lodge."
The homely touches and huge space really sets it apart from other similar places. Loved the fire and hot tub in the evenings. Comfy sofas and beds, great kitchen for preparing food and a lovely secure garden space for our dog to run around. Ian and Jo are brilliant hosts, very welcoming and friendly. They’re onsite and available if needed but not stepping on your toes! Really loved our stay and would book again in a heartbeat!
"We had a superb week at The Woodland Lodge."
Everything we needed plus “The Hot Tub”. Which was very much appreciated after our long days out walking the Peaks. Everything is maintained very well. Everything is very clean and Jo and Ian the owners were very welcoming. Location is great for visiting Bakewell, Mans Tor, Dovedale, Buxton etc but we also did two lovely big walks from the door step. Super dog friendly too. The perfect week was had. We will definitely be going back.
"Woodland Lodge was a lovely relaxing place to stay for our anniversary."
The owners Ian and Jo made you feel so welcome. The cottage was even better than the pictures. It’s an ideal place for visiting places like Buxton, Matlock and Bakewell. We enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. We would happily recommend Woodland Lodge.
"Woodland lodge is amazing , we didn’t want to leave !"
It was so peaceful even the dog chilled out The lodge was so homely , cosy & ideal for a relaxing holiday Near enough to local towns & villages for shopping trips to the local markets. Jo & Ian were wonderful hosts and were very helpful & have done a fantastic job with the lodge Will defo book again
"The cottage was absolutely stunning, there was so much space and the facilities in the cottage were excellent."
We especially enjoyed the hot tub (apart from getting out into the cold!). We had the dogs with us and the garden was great for them, it was enclosed so they could be let outside without fear of them running off. The cottage was lovely and warm and even the flagstone floors didn't freeze bare feet. The owners were very friendly and we got to know Sunny the pie bald cob who is very friendly. It was a wonderful break and we felt refreshed after our stay.
"The photographs don't do the lodge justice."
Lovely quiet setting, beautiful, comfortable accommodation. One tip: if you like ice in your drinks take an ice bucket as the freezer is in a separate, but close, building. We will be rebooking.
"Fantastic cottage and Owners."
Would recommend a break here to anyone.
"We had a fantastic week away in this beautiful place and were so lucky to have lovely weather too."
Me, my partner and our dog Jake loved every minute of our time away, the garden was also fully enclosed meaning Jake could wonder round at his leisure Jo and Ian are so lovely and welcoming, Meg the dog is lovely and Jakey absolutely adored Sunny the Pony. We will definately be back again. Only suggestions I have is...umbrella for the garden would be welcomed especially in warmer weather and a dog poo bin of sorts, once picked up the poo would be nice to be able to place it somewhere. Thanks so much for a wonderful and memorable weeks stay in paradise xx
"The cottage is comfortable and well equipped."
The private garden catches the sun late into the evening and hot tub is perfect for relaxing after walking. Ian and Joanne are excellent hosts and on hand if needed. There is a lovely walk from the cottage through a wooded area leading back to the cottage.
"The owners were easy going and stress free,the scenery was beautiful,and have no doubts we will be back again next year."
"Great facilities and the property is fantastic the amount of space for two people is great especially with two dogs"
"The cottage itself was excellent, very clean and comfortable inside."
A great hot tub outside and an good sized enclosed garden. We went with a young dog who loved being able to sprint around the garden all day long. The owners were very friendly and available for any issues we had. Good location for a relaxed holiday too, a half hour walk to some nice restaurants or country pubs. Would happily recommend and visit again.
"The cottage was absolutely perfect, it had everything that we needed and more."
The garden was lovely and the dog loved running around and playing it in. The farm was really easy to find and the owners were just the loveliest people and made us feel at home and welcomed straight away. We will definitely be staying again.
"This is a truly remarkable property in a beautiful setting."
It provided all we could have wished for and then some!
"We had a wonderful break at Woodland Lodge - the hosts were so kind and they really had thought of everything."
The cottage was beautiful and so spacious, our dog Gus loved the space in the enclosed garden and the hot tub was a total treat for us. This was complemented with amazing scenery and great walks, even in the stormy weather!
"Absolutely loved our time here,was just what we needed,the cottage was amazing added touches of Xmas tree and decorations was lovely."
A visit to Chatsworth house is a must,plenty of places to eat in Matlock but we didn’t feel the need as didn’t want to leave the cottage so had chilled days in with the bonus of the hot tub.
"The cottage is on private land in a beautiful countryside, perfect for a couples retreat."
The furnishings are of high quality and very homely. There's plenty of things to do around the area in terms of pubs, sites to see and shops to visit. We were made to feel very welcome and will definitely consider returning when we come back to the area.
"We have recently come back from a long weekend break here and had a fantastic time."
The cottage is beautiful and well looked after it had everything we needed. The cottage is dog friendly and he loved it. The owners Ian and Jo were lovely and were happy to help with anything we needed. The surrounding area is beautiful countryside where we could walk with our dog. We will be booking another stay here as well as recommending this holiday cottage stay to our family and friends.
"Beautiful property in great location for dog walks."
Friendly and helpful owners.
"What a fantastic cottage this is, if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing break this is the place to come."
The owners Jo and Ian (and their family) are all really friendly and welcoming and made us feel right at home. The standard of the conversion and decor is top notch with a lot of thought being put into the detail. The garden is lovely, private and secure for the dogs and the hot tub was great and completely covered so we even used it whilst it was raining! We will definitely be back
