The unspoiled view from the Lodge was worth the journey. It was very quiet, despite being close to a farm, and we slept in longer than we do at home. The owners and their family were very friendly: we watched the cows being milked, and their sheepdog had seven pups which we petted. Very close to all main Peek District attractions, so not much time Read morewaisted traveling. Thoroughly recommend this Lodge to everyone. Hide

The farmers wife was great. We bought eggs from her. It was good to see the animals.. Ive stayed in more immaculate properties but given the location and the friendliness of the farmers wife this was great. It was so peaceful but away from the bustle of a town within 30 minutes where we could buy what we needed. Walking down to Wetton Mill was a trRead moreeat. Id cycled the Manifold trail which goes through there. Id go there again - near home! Good base for getting about. Buxton etc etc Hide

Lovely people who look after the Lodge. Beautiful Lodge, which we would be very happy to revisit. Fantastic views. A drive to get anywhere, but each drive is a joy as the scenery is stunning. We visited many small towns and Crich Tramway Museum which was a real pleasure , for both the male and female members of the party. Loads of dog friendly pubsRead more and such like, but every visit was outshone by the journey there and back. Hide

Great location for walking and access to this part of Peak District. Wonderful views too. Very comfortable property, we used the wood burning stove to great effect a lot!
