We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing home for one week at the end of June. We usually spend most of our time out and about and eating in a local pub but Cambridge Lodge is so well equipped and has such a lovely ambience and location we ate in every night.

The owner Lisa is extremely welcoming and easy to talk to. She gave us a quick guided tour with handy hints for the property and the area and provided the most amazing buffet for our arrival (lasted three days by adding extra salad!) including a bottle of prosecco so we could toast the upcoming wedding of our friends who joined us for one night.

The lodge itself is open and spacious on two levels. On the upper level is the twin room, family bathroom and the kitchen which has a large dining area. The cupboards and drawers have everything you would have at home, an array of sharp knives and utensils, plenty of mugs, bowls and plates, roasting trays, casserole dishes... the list goes on. Specialty teas and coffees are provided as well as oils, herbs, spices, also included are the washing/cleaning products. You could create a come dine with me night with this kitchen!!

Also on the upper level is a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a shaper machine which was great to use after a days hiking!!

There is a stair case either side leading to the lower floor which has seating for every one. Chairs in the library corner, games area and sofas in front of the television which has free Netflix. The double bedrooms are either side of the sitting room, one has high ceilings with an ensuite shower or the other with it's very own cinema room. Which would you prefer??

There are books and tourist leaflets to read, games to play, a music docking station...you won't be bored here even when it's raining.

Outside the views outside are breathtaking, we even saw a buzzard flying in the distance. Being at the end of the track it's very peaceful as only the occasional hiker will pass by. There's plenty of parking and several tables and chairs to sit outside to enjoy that prosecco or cup of tea.

We loved staying here as it had lots of walks and hikes on the doorstep and within 30 minutes we were in Edale ready to scale Kinder Scout. It's close to Bakewell (market day is Monday) Matlock bath and many pretty villages waiting to be explored.

Our requirements for our holiday home was to be clean, spacious, peaceful and to have a view Cambridge lodge certainly ticked all our boxes. Stay here, you won't regret it.

Outstanding, five stars plus, just returned from the most wonderful, fantastic property one could wish to stay in. Cambridge lodge beautifully decorated and furnished, couldn't wish for anything more warm and cosy, spotlessly clean and brilliantly equipped nothing was missing, wonderful views and lovely walks.

Welcome from our host wow, warm and friendly, and so caring, phoned on the night to see that my mom who is 93 was ok and settled which she was, she thought the lodge was out of this world and our host was so lovely.

That's not all the extras provided, milk, teas coffee's and a wonderful hamper and welcome tea!!!! It kept us going a few days - thank you so much for everything and allowing us to stay in your beautiful property.

You should be and hope you are so proud of what you have done

Our stay at Cambridge Lodge was brilliant. From the time we got there with the welcome hamper of food and wine, to the Easter eggs that our host, Lisa, had hidden around the place for our son to have an Easter egg hunt, it was brilliant. I have never stayed in such a well appointed and superbly maintained property. The owner, Lisa met us when we got there and showed us around, explaining how things worked and a little bit of history of the place, and was always on hand throughout the stay if we needed her as she lived on the farm about 5 minutes away. Before we got there she said to pack lightly as there was everything we'd need in the lodge, and she was right.. there was. Detergents, sauces, herbs, condiments, sharp knives (something that never exists in holiday lets! ) and even a slow cooker.

The property itself is amazing, but does have limited headroom in a section downstairs, you just duck your head when you are there as it's part of the quirkiness of living in such a property. I'm 6ft tall and I didn't hit my head once, I just remembered to duck!

I've stayed in many holiday homes over the years, in both this country and USA, both modern and quirky, but this has to be the best by far. Lisa said she wanted to do the job properly and she's certainly done that, I'd thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in this area, it's lovely and quiet, good links to the main roads and nearby Matlock Bath and has plenty of walks in the immediate vicinity if you just fancy an afternoon or evening stroll.

As Cambridge Lodge wasn't booked the week prior to our arrival, Lisa invited us to check-in early and laid on a superb welcome lunch. Lisa is a wonderful host and she and Jim have made sure that everything you could possible need and more is supplied - fully equipped kitchen, wifi, smart TVs (with Netflix), a body shaper (you have to experience it to understand what it is!), an abundance of toiletries, every type of tea you could possibly want, plus more.

Cambridge Lodge is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District, is secluded enough, but not too f

I donít know what I can add to what the other reviews have said. From our first contact with the cottages owners, to our last day we have been wowed by the quality and attention to detail that Lisa has put into her property. My partner and I have rented a number of cottages before, not one has come close to the welcome received from Cambridge Lodge, the welcome feast prepared by Lisa was sufficient to last us days and was simply stunning.

We had booked for our anniversary, and Lisa went above and beyond what we had expected, adding balloons and congratulato
