Historic house with modern comforts and breath-taking location
What makes The Mermaid Inn so special is that we realise that the key to a good venue is getting people together. Unlike many other holiday cottages that offer large group accommodation, The Mermaid is a single residence that everyone stays in and features an impressive 12 metre dining room and ample lounge space – perfect for getting your group together. Groups with children can relax in the knowledge that they are safely tucked in upstairs, whilst the evening celebrations continue downstairs. All 13 bedrooms have en suite facilities.
The Mermaid is a historic pub converted into an exclusive self-catering venue in a stunning moorland location, with amazing panoramic views of what is arguably “the view” of the Peak District. The historic spa town of Buxton is only 20 minutes’ drive away, as is Alton Towers, not to mention lots of walking opportunities nearby - plenty to keep the whole group happy.
Whatever your occasion, The Mermaid Inn provides a truly inspirational setting.
