“Perfect location, accomodation, service”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

From the initial booking to the return of deposit the service was outstanding. The barns were imaculate and a perfect set up for a large group made up of couples and families with young children (aged 4mths-3years). We stayed for a weekend and the set up was perfect for sociallising in the evening and playing with the kids in the day time....the Royal Oak was also the perfect place for a delicious meal on the saturday night.

“Fantastic Accomodation for a large group get together”
Reviewed 4 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We have just enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Lapwing house and the adjoining cottages. There were 16 of us - 8 adults and 8 children varying from 6-16. There were plenty of bathrooms and loads of space for everyone to find their own spot - we never saw the kids they managed to keep out of our way and have a wonderful time. Lapwing house is in an absolutely stunning secluded spot - and this is great but bear in mind that 'Take Away' and convenience stores are not on your doorstep so be prepared. There are however a wealth of FANTASTIC pubs serving food in the area - not least the Royal Oak at Hurlow absolutely wonderful meal enjoyed here. Lapwing House is a wonderful 'Get away from it all retreat'

“Perfect Accommodation for a big group with kids”
Reviewed 24 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

After a fabulous weekend away I'm pleased to say we had great service, the house was fab, large, clean, well placed, great outdoor space and really well equipped for a big group and the kids.

All the toys were fab, the kids loved the noisy stuff!

The house was really well kitted out and lovely and warm. The only negative (which was also a positive!) was we could’ve done with a hoover, we’d have left it tidier then!

The owners of the cottage were really flexible and letting us leave the keys at the property, 30 mins to the pub there and back to drop them off would’ve made our journey home a bit long!

All in all a great weekend and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lapwing House and Barns to friends and family.

“Comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 7 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Lapwing house is a great place to rent for a large group. The kitchen area is spacious and well equipped with fantastic views. The trampoline and children's game store was perfect for young children. The bathrooms are modern and clean, and the beds are very comfortable. Only issue was that the creaky corridor floorboards do mean that you may wake up your fellow guests if you're a night time riser! Also enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Royal Oak pub.

“Wonderful Location”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is our second time at Lapwing and just as enjoyable as the first. The house is in a marvellous location with wonderful views and within easy driving distance of all the sites we wanted to visit. It is also very well equipped with nice bathrooms and a fabulous kitchen - simple but elegant. Easy for shopping with a Waitrose 20 minutes away in Buxton and a village shop in Longnor. Finally they are very dog friendly.

“Beautiful house, fabulous surroundings.”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

16 of us stayed at Lapwing for the weekend and found it excellent, a real home from home.
The views over the fields were stunning as were the facilities in all 3 houses. The living room in the main house was big enough to accomodate all of us after the 4 children had gone to bed and the kitchen was more than big enough for us to cook meals for us all.

We arrived to find all 3 houses in immaculate condition along with a welcome gift of some bottles of wine and we felt really welcome. We were very lucky with the weather but the houses are more than big enough to give everybody some space if the elements conspire against you.

I would recommend Lapwing to any large group of friends staying in the peaks, so much so we are already booking for next year!!!

“Fantastic Birthday surprise weekend”
Reviewed 8 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

What wonderful holiday cottages, fabulous views, quiet location, superbly appointed. My daughter booked the 3 cottages for a surprise birthday weekend for me and our family and my friends. Plenty of space so that you could all be together if you wished or get away from each other if you wanted to! Well furnished with all mod cons and plenty of facilities and parking. Just wonderful!
