“60th birthday celebration”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Close family spent the weekend in Portland House celebrating my husband’s 60th birthday. There were 24 of us with an age range of 2 to 77. We all had a fantastic time in Derbyshire, in spite of most of the local attractions being closed because of the time of year. Fortunately, Chatsworth House was open, so several of us visited this very impressive Stately Home.
Portland House was the perfect venue for our family party . The facilities are excellent, it is very spacious and comfortable with some quirky features. The bar billiard table in the bar room was a great hit! The owners, Martin and Juliet, were extremely helpful, providing a great deal of information from the time of booking until our arrival and always being available at the end of the phone should I have any questions or queries.
I can highly recommend this beautiful house as a party venue.

“Fabulous Family Christmas”
Reviewed 2 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Our extended family had an absolutely fabulous time staying at Portland House for Christmas this year. It had a real home away from home atmosphere though we all agreed it was rather more like borrowing a hotel for a weekend. The house is perfectly set up for big groups and the thoughtful touches from Juliet and family really made it special. The surrounding countryside is stunning too – wish we could have stayed for longer.

Portland house had everything to be the perfect rental for our extended family gathering. The house is very well appointed and lacks nothing for a great self catering weekend. The owners are extremely helpful and everything from the booking process to leaving is made easy.

We booked this house for my partner's birthday party based on great reviews and it did not disappoint. Juliet was very responsive on emails and texts and answered all questions. The house is situated in the beautiful Peak District so is perfect for exploring during the day. House had 12 bedrooms and bathrooms which was great for guests - in addition to all amenities needed to throw a great party! We had a wonderful time!

“Perfect for a classy & stylish hen party!”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The house is beautiful. The reception rooms are perfect for large groups of people. We thoroughly enjoyed a night in the bar, a cocktail making class in the large dining room and afternoon tea in the sitting room.

The house is on the doorstep of the picturesque Matlock town and there is ample parking.

“A Fantastic weekend in a magnificent house”
Reviewed 18 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

A wonderful 12 bedroomed house with separate kitchen, utility room, 'banquet room', & bar room. It easily accommodated 24 of us with ages ranging from 20 months through to 70.The owners are very helpful and seem to have thought of everything. The bar and Bar Billiards were very well used, as were the various games available and the table football on the third floor. The kitchen and utility room had everything we needed, from the cooking utensils, the extensive cutlery & crockery, through to the two large dishwashers. All this ideally situated in Matlock Bath, with a short walk to all its attraction and easy viewing of the illuminations & fireworks if you are there at the right time - we were and they were stunning! I can't recommend this highly enough

“Excellent from start to finish!”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Booked this property for a friends reunion. There were plenty of us with babies and this house accommodated us all. Lots of beautiful bedrooms well decorated with ensuites and bathrooms enough for the whole group. Fantastic kitchen and dining room layout for us all to spread out and a lovely bar and living space for everyone. The location is fabulous and walking distance to the town with some great coffee shops and restaurants. Booking was easy and Juliet was very helpful throughout. Thanks for helping us have such a memorable trip!
