Fourth stay and counting

  • 5 of 5

This was our FOURTH stay, this time an extended one, so obviously it's a house and a location that we love. There is a rural tranquillity about the place, but it's still only 5 mins. from a Tesco's and close to some good pubs. The friendliness of local people strikes us every time we come over from Sweden. We have had different friends from Sweden over for stays, and the proximity to Chatsworth, Bakewell, Hardwick, Haddon etc. makes it an ideal base for us.

Amber Lodge is bright and airy and in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

It was an ideal base for a family get together - a home from home. Vic was helpful, just as he was during our stay 2 years ago. The bungalow is well resourced, with everything you could need for a stay away

Really comfortable, well equipped and warm !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Amber Lodge again ! It works so well for us we keep coming back.

The beds are comfortable, and the welcome is very friendly. We get a Tesco food delivery soon after our arrival.

The varied properties available here allow us to accommodate however many friends come to join us.

We have already booked for our next visit.

Can't wait to go again next year!!!

  • 5 of 5

2 families with a total of 9 people stayed in the Amber lodge for 3 nights. The accommodation was not only large enough for all of us but was equipped with everything we needed and more. The whole bungalow was comfortable and kept to an incredible standard. The children and adults loved having the animals so close by and were delighted to be invited by Farmer Vic to feed the animals one evening. We loved having the peacock around for breakfast and enjoyed the eggs that Farmer Vic kindly gave to us. The hot tub provided a relaxation for the evening after busy days in the surrounding countryside. We were very sad to leave and cannot wait to book again for next year.
