We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend at Portland House. There were 24 of us in total, couples, families and singles with ages ranging from 4 months to 84 years old and it was a perfect venue for everyone. The facilities were excellent and the location was perfect. For a large gathering, whatever the occasion, I can not imagine a better place.

We had an amazing weekend at the 5* Portland House. From the minute I booked the house until we left it was superb. It was spotlessley clean, really well equipped and the lay out excellent. Everyone was really relaxed from the moment they arrived. We had caterers on the Saturday and they were equally excellent. An added bonus was it was Matlock Baths Illuminations so we had firework display on the Saturday. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Amazing House, luxurious, fun and quirky! We booked the house for a party of 22 people for the weekend and it was absolutely amazing. The owners were lovely and prompt in all of their replies and provided loads of info. The bedrooms were fantastic and a lovely size and the house was absolutely perfectly set up for entertaining. Downstairs has many varied rooms with a huge kitchen, a big dining room, a comfortable and huge front room and an amazing bar that was beyond all my expectations! All of the finishing touches give the house...
