We had a fantastic week at Peak Retreat. We were a party of 7 visiting for my mum's 60th, and it really was a home from home. Everything we could possibly need was there and the DVDs were appreciated by my 4 year old! The main living space was fantastic, we could all be together without feeling squashed and the big kitchen made it easy to prepare big picnics for our day trips. Brilliant location to explore the Peak District, and we certainly did - despite the torrential rain (and various members of our group getting a horrid cold during our stay) we had some great days out at Lyme Park, Chatsworth, Speedwell Cavern, Buxton, Eyam (scrummy rhubarb and custard ice creams in the shop there!) and our little one loved the swimming pool at Glossop. The maps and notes you sent with the key were brilliant and helped us plan our tim to get the best out of our stay. We had a nice dinner at The Sportsman but the food highlight was The Packhorse - delicious. Great service and special food but not at all pretentious, and the Kinder Surprise dessert wowed us all! Also went for drinks in The Royal and the staff were ultra friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We were so sad to leave but made some wonderful memories and my mum (a tough customer) absolutely loved it!
Owner's Response: I am glad your mum had such a lovely time! Peak Retreat is perfect for small family celebrations. Its nice that you have mentioned some local hostelries and the places you have enjoyed visiting - makes it easy now for folks following you to plan their special trip.
