Superb house in perfect location for exploring the Peak District.
Ridge Hall is a wonderful house which accommodated our extended family of 10 with ease. The snooker table, piano and two tv's kept the younger ones occupied, still leaving quiet corners for reading etc. Bedrooms are really impressive, 4 poster beds a speciality! The garden has great views and provides a pleasant area to sit outside, as long as you don't mind sharing the lawn with the odd visiting sheep!Walks into the wilds of the Peaks can start from the front drive and a whole host of attractions too numerous to mention (see tourist information sites) are within a reasonable drive away. Nearby Buxton or Chapel-en-le-Frith have large supermarkets and loads of eating places. Slightly disappointing was that the woodland adjoining the property is not accessible, too dangerous with hidden drops apparently. The signage from the road is designed to deter anyone entering the lane, 'Footpath only, no vehicles' with no clue that Ridge Hall is at the bottom, caused some of the family to spend some time driving back and forth along the single-tracked road looking for the house. The whole family were so impressed that we are already planning a return visit.

Fantastic Early Christmas Getaway
Our party of 15 booked this immaculate property for our annual early Christmas meet up. When we arrived we found everything we could possibly ask for, a great house near the hill top with grand architectural features, well-equipped kitchen including AGA stove, large dining room and lounge each with separate woodburners, separate snug with piano/games for the children. One of the best locations in the Peaks for hill walking in my opinon, I recommend to check out the Beehive Inn local pub in the valley, too.

Beautiful house for family holiday
We stayed at Ridge Hall for bonfire weekend as a group of 12 including 3 toddlers. The house is beautifully maintained, very welcoming, cosy and with plenty of space for individuals to find some peace and read a book. There is lots to do around the peak district so the hall is in an ideal location for families with energetic children. Pros: Incredible house, log fires, four poster beds, stunning views, safe for young children, plenty of bathrooms. Cons: It took a while to find such items as cutlery and figure out the layout of the house. Not a bad thing as it adds to the mystery of the building.

Excellent Retreat
Amazing place to hold a family get together. Beautiful house, gorgeous bedrooms, excellent facilities, if you plan on doing some cooking you may need a few more kitchen cooking utensils. We ordered catering through Lomas in Buxton who were excellent and very good value. Would definitely recommend this house to friends and family

Beautiful, Historic and Spacious Country Retreat
We spent a weekend at Ridge Hall. The property is spacious and quirky in its layout, meaning that a large group could stay here with relative privacy. The property is decorated beautifully and has everything you need for your stay such as kitchen equipment, games room, TVs, wifi and plenty of towels and spare blankets. Sitting by the open fire in the evening was lovely, and the idyllic surroundings are perfect for country walks. The owner was helpful and the stay was really easy and stress free. I would highly recommend staying here to any groups of family or friends.
