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.

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 waisted traveling. Thoroughly recommend this Lodge to everyone.

The farmer’s wife was great. We bought eggs from her. It was good to see the animals.. I’ve 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 treat. I’d cycled the Manifold trail which goes through there. I’d go there again - near home! Good base for getting about. Buxton etc etc

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 pubs and such like, but every visit was outshone by the journey there and back.

Lovely cottage with fantastic views over the Peaks. Set on the edge of a working farm. In it's own gated enclosure. Close to popular attractions. Very Clean and spacious cottage with a cosy and warm feel. We had a great time. Would recommend.

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! It's quite compact but newly fitted out/ decorated - small bathroom, but the shower is more than fine. On a farm with 'lively' working dogs, which didn't sit well with our young children. But overall we had a great time here.
