A comfortable well equipped lodge in a beautiful location, for those who like walking there are many walks direct from the lodge down to the Manifold Valley and beyond. You can stock up with food from supermarkets in Leek and Ashbourne, also plenty of places to eat out. And most important thing of all welcoming, helpful and friendly owners.

This lovely lodge is surrounded by amazing views and is beautifully decorated. It is cosy and just so peaceful. Will definitely visit again.

This is a beautiful place to visit. Friendly locals, two legged and four! Be sure to have a vehicle with big engine to get you over the peaks, so that you can get to all those amazing views and places of interest with relative ease. I would recommend this place for its peacefulness and somewhere to unwind and recharge your batteries.
