Riverside House : The House Guest Book
In our guests' own words . . .
We loved being back in a house which has served us so well in the past - whole family immediately relaxed. We loved the wonderful location and so much to do in the immediate locality for a wide range of ages and interests. Also the space, feeling of being welcomed by Caren, Wendy's emails, enormous amount of kitchen equipment, bedding etc.
We were a bit anxious about travelling after it had been snowy in Buxton the day before, but Wendy did a fantastic job keeping us informed with how conditions were on the ground and making sure that the garage was cleared so that we could put the cars in there. The children had a fantastic time playing in the snow in the enclosed yard first thing and we really valued the fact they could do it safely without our supervision. Everyone from 6 to 70-something really enjoyed spending time in the games room. We also enjoyed how close you are to the Monsal Trail. On Saturday morning we took sledges up there and had fantastic fun on a short walk. The communication throughout has been wonderful - efficient and friendly. The house was warm, well-stocked and comfortably and contemporarily furnished.
We all had a lovely time - thank you! The accommodation is very comfortable and homely with plenty of room for two children and three dogs. Lovely walks too. We all said we'd like to live there! A really nice place for a family celebration. My father-in-law was quite overwhelmed by it all.
All 12 of us had an absolutely BRILLIANT time, I honestly haven't had such a lovely weekend in forever. You have a beautiful house, we are all jealous! There was absolutely nothing that we needed that wasn't in the house. The house feels very homely and it was always warm (for the size of it, and arriving in snow, I was surprised at this!). Loved that there was the stuff there to build a fire! I've already recommended it to people at work.
