I stayed at Portland House for a weekend with 22 guests to celebrate my 50th birthday and it was perfect. The whole house is beautifully decorated and every single bedroom is decorated to the same high standard, so all my guests were delighted with their rooms. The bar area was great fun and features the original servants’ bells- which occasionally were rung! The kitchen was very user friendly with everything we needed to cater for a large party and everything was so well organised everything we needed was to hand.
The house itself feels remote but is literally just a 5 minute walk to Matlock Bath and all it’s attractions. We all had a wonderful weekend and no-one wanted to leave and we are currently looking for another celebratory excuse to return.
