The Mermaid Inn is an amazing property. The house is huge, all with decent sized bedrooms and en-suites, with new or recently re-refurbished facilities. The views form the dining room are exceptional and the bar area incredible. Made for an excellent weekend. Thanks!

We booked the Mermaid part based on nostalgia as I remembered going there when it was a working pub in my youth, and partly based on the reviews. Could it be as good as it seemed? well - it could not have been better in any way. The rooms are smart and comfortable, the bar is the perfect party and games space and there is a variety of cosy spaces for chatting, chilling, enjoying a bit of down time all at the same time. Local supermarkets deliver to the door and we enjoyed the excellent services if Chef David at the Dinner Party Company for my 60th birthday celebration - super food and super efficient and friendly service. And all that before mentioning the most magical thing of all - the breathtaking views and magnificent walks right from the doorstep. I have loved the Peak District all my life and been to many parts of it over the years... trust me... this less well known part is amongst the very best. perfect place, perfect setting... and the scene is set for memories to last a lifetime.

60th Birthday Weekend Fantastic!!!! Came here to start my 60th Birthday celebrations and what a weekend we had. 22 adults ranging from 22 to 60 and 6 children from 21months to 13. All 13 bedrooms en suite and so comfortable. We all had a fantastic time, So much room for everyone to do their own thing or all together. The weather wasn't very kind to us but it didn't matter there was so much for us all to do, from the Kareoke in the bar our pool and dart competitions playing board games or just reading and chilling. Then being able to eat all together on the fantastic dining table with views to die for. The kitchen had plenty equipment to cater for all our needs and so handy to have all our food delivered on our arrival so no need to leave for the whole weekend , but if you wanted to the villages of Buxton and Bakewell are not too far away. All in all I'd highly recommend The Mermaid Inn for any Special Occasion for large groups. And a special thank you to Pete who answered all of my questions, and believe me there were a few!, for all his help in making this a weekend to remember.

Even better than the pictures. Every year, I get together a common interest group of friends from across the country to relax, enjoy ourselves, explore the local environment and catch up. Finding somewhere to host all of us is tricky - but Pete, Marie-Axelle and Mark couldn't have made it easier or more hospitable or been more helpful in the lead up and on arrival. The Mermaid Inn itself is remote, beautiful and superbly kitted out. Every room had everything everyone needed. The entrance into the bar makes you feel special, the dining room is just breathtaking (not a single person didn't walk in and go "look at this view," or an expletive filled version!) and the social areas are the right size for groups to break off and have a chat. Then there's the environment around you. I could tell you about the view, and how the photos don't do it justice. I could tell you about the hills around you and the potential to explore. I could tell you about the peace, the shooting stars, the sunset and sunrises you feel so lucky to see. There are so many great things I want to say or explain, but if the words exist in the English language to express how happy being there surrounded by my friends made me feel, I don't know them yet. There are supermarkets nearby, enough space for everything you need, excursions, walks and sheep who'll leave you alone. We'd been somewhere else the previous years, but this blew the other venue out of the water. I'm hoping to go back next year, and so is everyone else. Hope no-one beat us to our preferred date!!

WOW!!! What a place! This is the place to be if you want a family & friends gathering, all rooms en-suite, kitchen equipment, crockery, glassware and cutlery to easily support having 34 people there. Brilliant still having the bar area still in place and the massive table is perfect! The view was second to none, we did have amazing weather but even in winter I would think the view would still be as stunning. Will certainly be back next time we have a big celebration!!!!!!!

Perfect perfect perfect....its got absolutely everything you need including a view to die for!!! I booked The Mermaid for my 50th Birthday Party and it was perfect in every single way. From the rooms with their own bathrooms to the fully stocked kitchen, various lounges & our very own pub where we could make as much noise as we liked, hopefully we didn't disturb the sheep too much. The outside space is amazing with plenty of car parking & grassy space to play games or just sit, relax & enjoy the wonderful views. 27 adults plus kids & dogs, there was plenty of room for everyone.....in fact we kept losing people!!!!!! Pete and the team the The Mermaid were extremely helpful from my very first enquiry through to my deposit refund. The pièce de résistance is definitely the Dining Room with its stunning view and very long dining table. We hired in local caterers recommended by Pete, one of which The Dinner Party Company were outstanding. They were very efficient serving delicious food and very reasonably priced. They made my birthday party very very special. We cannot wait to return :)

Had a family 50th birthday weekend here last weekend - it was fantastic. The place itself is amazing, really well laid out and well equipped with the most stunning views from the dining room. The bar was great.... just like being in an active pub, which really added to the atmosphere along with the karaoke ! lol. All rooms were spotlessly clean and well presented with good quality furniture, curtains, bedding etc. and the kitchen had more than enough crockery etc for our party of 33. Well done Peak Occasions for maintaining the property to such high standards and yet keeping the family feel where no one felt afraid to touch anything and allowing the dog just made it perfect.
