“The perfect venue for a large mixed age party”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

An excellent house: extremely clean, well equipped and roomy. The decor is tasteful and fresh. Lots of different spaces to socialise or relax. The bar area, kitchen and games room were particularly well used by our party whose ages ranged from toddler to those in their 60s. My only criticism is that the website does not fully do justice to the extent and amount of facilities and equipment and as a result we packed things that we found on arrival.

Liked best: The look and feel of the house.
Liked least: The automatic lighting and fan in the toilet in the room which was on a very long timer and did disturb sleep.

“Perfect for a large mixed age group birthday weekend”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely venue which lived up to all our expectations. We hired the Derwent for a 40th birthday weekend, with friends and family travelling from all over the UK, so it's location is excellent. The pub itself is immaculate inside and the condition of the facilities and cleanliness of the property was first rate. All of the rooms feel spacious and although we had over 40 people staying it never felt crowded. The garden is neatly kept grass with a paved area for the pub style benches. Worth noting that there is no play equipment for children but the kids had fun using the area for other activities. The bar inside is roomy and the pool table, bar football and dart board saw plenty of use! Catering facilties are more than adequate, although the oven trays didn't fit into the new oven, but we did mention this to the owners so hopefully this will be rectifed.
Its ideally situated for taking advantage of local activities. There is the lido in Hathersage, caverns to explore, a nice selection of short walks including the weir (very pretty) and up to the dam if you want a longer stroll.
Overall everyone really enjoyed the weekend. It worked for singles, adults and families with children.

Thank you for taking the time to review our venue. We have plans to add a play area in the garden for children in the near future (plans are on the way!) as The Derwent is perfect for families wanting to get together all under one roof. We are also sorry that the oven shelves did not fit again this has already been rectified after you have pointed this out to us. Great to hear you have had a lovely weekend away with your family and friends and thank you for choosing to stay with us.

Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed for a friends hen do and had the best time ever. Communication with the owners was good, the house was spotless and decorated to a really high standard. It was fully equipped with everything we needed. We couldn't have asked for any more. I would not hesitate in recommending to others. Thanks Peak Venues

“Brilliant venue for an 'alternative' Stag Weekend”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

If youre wanting a venue that could accomodate 30+, easy access to the activities in the Peak District, availability of some localyl brewed ale and an ability to self cater - you cant go wrong with the Derwent.

The venue its self is modern, well maintained but has kept is country pub feel that coupled with the Peak Districts unique attractions, provides an ideal alternative base for a stag weekend.

Booking was simple, the team at Peak Venues extremely helpful and the local caters, events providersd etc they recommended meant what seemed ot be a daunting task as Best Man in reality was relatviely simple.

Best of all, the Stag Party, including the Stag loved it!

What a fabulous place to stay, luxury and all so self sufficient. Brilliant mix of games, i.e. football table, pool, darts and places to sit, talk and relax. Love the idea of having your own bar. Easily accessible for people to do their own thing during the day and then meet up at night for celebrations Bedrooms were luxurious and the upstairs was extremely spacious and well decorated. A warning to people to take slippers! A wonderful way to spend my 60th with friends and family, thank you.

“Exceeded all expectations - Fantastic weekend - will hopefully return”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is my my first ever review - I was compelled to leave a review due to the quality of the venue.

My best men were tasked with organizing a stag weekend for myself & 34 friends and family members.

They well & truly excelled themselves by booking 'The Derwent'. The accommodation and bedrooms are varied in size & shape, many with en suite - there was never a wait for a shower/bathroom. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Much nicer than the standard 'hostel' accommodation I have become used to put up with at other stag weekends i have attended...

Without question the star of the show here is the communal areas (2 x sitting rooms, one with huge TV) huge dining room perfect for Beer Pong and other games, Kitchen/utility rooms are huge and well stocked. The games room was great and of course the focal point of the ground floor during our weekend - the Bar Area.

We arranged for a few kegs of Ale to be delivered to the accommodation prior to our arrival which was a great idea - however please note that the pump on the website and photos is no longer present, as from what I gather it became damaged by over zealous users.

If i was to split hairs the quality of the darts for the dart board were a little poor (not a problem for most people but a few guests did mention this) and there is a noticeable slant on the pool table.

However do not let this put you off - if you are looking for a relaxing stay/gathering (not just for a stag or hen parties) this would be absolutely perfect - the location is beautiful and the parking excellent. We actually arranged for a 50 seater coach to take us to and from Sheffield for the Saturday night and for 33 of us it worked out as only £8 return each. This was deemed very worthwhile as there is not much of a night 'scene' in Bamford .

I would highly recommend the Derwent to anyone and I really hope that in the not to distant future i will be able to get together a group of a similar size and enjoy it again.

hope to be back soon.

awesome weekend and fantastic stag venue. you wont regret it,

“Great party”
Reviewed 8 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Great venue and the working pub in the middle is just brilliant for a large group we had a great time . It's easy to get to and is near lovely places. A couple of issues the lights in rude suites and the fans are on a timer which means they can't be turned off and it takes ages for them to go off. The kitchens are strangely organised. Overall tho it was great for our house party .
