Quarnford Lodge is ideal for gathering family and friends together and celebrating life's special moments, large and small. The house is in a fantastic location with spectacular views and two pubs, The Knight's Table and New Inn, a leisurely walk of less than a mile. The ten stylish and comfortable en-suite bedrooms sleep up to 28 people. Adults and kids alike will love the secure garden where you can design your very own mini golf course or play a game of table tennis. If you need a large self-catering property in the Peak District National Park then Quarnford Lodge could be what you want.
Exploring the Dane Valley and the Peak District is a pleasure in any season. There are wonderful walks straight from the house, including a circular three-mile route which takes in the Three Shires Head on Axe Moor, where Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire meet, as well as waterfalls and a pretty Grade II listed stone bridge. Further afield, there are lovely walks through Corbar Cross and Corbar Woods, to Solomon's Temple, and around Buxton Country Park. Mountain bike trails are plentiful and there is a route to suit every ability, with bike hire available locally.
Buxton is a beautiful spa town with a long history of welcoming guests. Well-heeled Georgians and Victorians flocked there to "take the water" and enjoy the social life, with their legacy remaining in the form of elegant buildings and excellent amenities. The town is a fabulous choice for a fun day of shopping, eating and sightseeing. Other nearby attractions include Tittesworth Reservoir, Blaze Farm, Bakewell, Chatsworth House, and Alton Towers.
The owners of Quarnford Lodge are happy to put you in contact with local businesses who can arrange activities either on-site or in the area. These include spa days and cooking lessons, quad biking, archery and so much more. The location and layout of Quarnford Lodge also make it ideal for team building, corporate meetings and strategy sessions.
If Quarnford Lodge is not large enough for your needs, the owners have another lovely property that sleeps up to 34 people only ten minutes away.
