“Great place for a large family gathering”
Our family stayed at OId Beams for my dad's 60th birthday. 12 adults and 2 children. The living space was perfect for us, especially the large conservatory for mealtimes. The rooms were well kitted out and many of the bedrooms were really spacious en-suites. The garden was pretty with a climbing frame and slide. The local area is really beautiful, although the house itself is on an A-road. I will defintely visit the area again and if we ever have such a large gathering again we will probably come back to Old Beams. I would recommend it to anyone with a similar group.
“Perfect in every way”
We were looking for a family home with lots of social space to celebrate my mums 70th birthday and this was perfect.6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, huge conservatory, contained garden, BBQ, loads of character , ample parking space and situated in a gorgeous village close to loads of fab tourist attractions. Enough space for each couple to 'retreat' to their room if needed with the privacy of their own bathroom but loads of communal space inside and out to celebrate this important day. Topped off with fab service and food from the Ye Old Crowne less than 5mins walk away..... We just need an excuse to go back
Owner's reply: Thank you for your great review! We are so pleased you enjoyed Old Beams and that your mother enjoyed her celebrations. We hope to welcome you back again sometime. Best wishes, Helen
“A great place for a family party”
We rented the Old Beams for a 60th birthday celebration, everyone who visited thought the house was amazing. There was plenty of parking, and enough bedrooms and bathrooms for those who stayed. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom were ideal for an elderly guest who wouldn't have been able to manage the very steep stairs. The conservatory is a great place for a party, there were twelve of us for Sunday lunch with plenty of room. The house is in a good area for walking or there is a cycle trail/hire close by.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to provide your review. It's always lovely to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay at Old Beams. Best wishes, Helen
“A sparkly jewel for a girlie getaway”
We had the most amazing stay at old beams for a girlie getaway recently and would highly recommend it if you are after a beautiful place with character, luxurious showers (enough of them to keep 12 ladies happy!!) and a stunning conservatory to eat your meals in! The owners went out of their way both before and after our stay to facilitate our special requests including helping us have a hot tub delivered which I also reccommend-fits great in their garden! The local pub owner was very welcoming and we enjoyed a stroll around some of the local countryside...helped that it was one of the hottest weekends of the year and after an extra night at the end spent watching DVDs on one of the many super TVs we went home happy, tanned and already planning our next trip....Thank you old beams!!
Owner's reply: Thanks for your glowing review! I'm so glad the hot tub worked out and you had a great weekend. We look forward to welcoming you again another time!
“Big house in a good location.”
The conservator is great for entertaining and partying day or night. Top floor shower is not for tall people but others are good. Breakage fees are a bit steep so advise you replace glasses yourself, £3 a glass,especially as broken due to Belfast sink not being very forgiving.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you found the breakage fees a bit steep - but I don't make anything on breakages! The prices are set at the actual replacement/purchase costs. In fact, they should have been £4 each but I purchased the last replacement ones in the sale! http://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-vino-wine-glasses-set-of-4/p230211128
A group of 12 stayed at Old Beams for a long weekend, we walked, cycled and had quality time together. Our group was mainly runners (or ex runner in my case) from our athletics club, who meet up a few times a year. We have not stayed at this house before, but had a fab weekend. The house is very old and I believe is Grade II listed. Although the house was cold when we arrived, we were told the heating was on constant! Although the rooms are very clean, the wiring is a bit doggy in places, extension cables everywhere and should be rewired especiallly for families travelling with children lights were not working in one of the rooms. We had a few BBQ's although the weather was not too warm, and would take a few warmer clothes if staying here in May, can't guarantee if the heating will work, although the log fire was very welcoming. The location was fantastic as it wasn't far from the Tissington Trail and would certainly cycle this again, although the goats that attacked my hubbies bike were a bit of a laugh.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. Just to re-clarify what I mentioned in my follow-up email - the heating was on timer, the hot water was on constant. The thermostat is set to 20 degrees. If guests require constant heating they can request this on arrival and will be billed accordingly. The boiler and system is only 3 years old and is serviced annually, most recently in December 2011. There are in total 4 extension cables in the whole house - covering a total of 15 living and sleeping spaces, excluding bathrooms! These are recommended for surge protection purposes, as in any property. Unfortunately, fuses do blow, as do bulbs in any house. The house was entirely rewired after we purchased it, 4 years ago. We had an electric safety certification completed only a week before your arrival, although this is not something required by law for self-catering accommodation, I do take the safety of our clients very seriously. The certificate stated the electrics in the house were all safe and complied with current standards. The blip with the fuses in the conservatory has now been resolved, and I wouldn't want future guests to have the impression that there is a long standing problem!
“Spacious traditional property in a stunning location”
Old Beams is a great property. Our stay was for a few days and we used Old Beams as a base for a cycling weekend around the Peak District. Dealing with the owner was a pleasant experience and all questions about the booking, property and area were responded to promptly and in detail. We were given a really detailed fact sheet a week or so before our stay and that answered all the questions we had and proved a useful reference. The property itself is traditional and has been well looked after. It has pretty much all the mod cons you could need (although a washing machine would have been handy to save us hand washing our sweaty lycra!). It is really spacious and will comfortably take a dozen people. Anyway, overall a spacious traditional property in a stunning location. Would definitely stay there again.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review - I am so glad you enjoyed the house. We have recently installed a washing machine and dryer for guest use, and I will make sure it is highlighted in the literature for future guests.
“Wonderful and comforts of home”
We booked this as a family get away for 12. It was so nice for us all to sit at the table together as well as being able to relax by the open fire in the evening, playing board games (all provided) and relaxing. Everything was provided for all our needs, even to cook a wonderful roast meal for 12! We shall certainly be recommending this to our friends and returning for a future visits.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review! We are glad you had a lovely stay, and look forward to welcoming you and/or your friends in the future!
“IT'S OUR EARLY XMAS TREAT AND WE LOVE IT!”
This is the 3rd year our family and friends have been to Old Beams. We absolutely love it! As we’re all together we make it our ‘Xmas’ weekend making good use of the huge dining table and the real fire adds to the Christmas theme! There’s plenty of places to visit if you wish, but as it’s so cosy the only time any of us leave the house is to get the initial shop from Morrisons (with a short trip into Leek town centre) and a stroll to walk off the Xmas dinner! This house is very comfortable and ticks all our boxes. I highly recommend Old Beams and Helen (the owner) is very accommodating. 10/10 from us!
Owner's reply: Thanks for this! We look forward to seeing you again!
“Excellent big house for group with small children”
We had a lovely relaxing stay at Old Beams with a group of old friends and four toddlers. We did a bit of exploring, Chatsworth House and Gardens, coffee in Ashbourne and a nice pub lunch locally. The house was brilliant in the evenings - lots of space in the conservatory for the toddlers to run around while the grown ups enjoyed a nice meal and a few glasses of wine. Good bedrooms mainly ensuite and a cosy living room. The location was great for us as half the group was travelling from London and the other half from Scotland.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We often hear that the location is good for people traveling from all over - so it is great to hear this as a specific comment.
