We were welcomed by a member of the bar staff, who informed us that he would call the manger to book us in. We were shown to our room (room 6) which was part of an annexe adjoining the property. The room was spacious and comfortable but unfortunatly the en-suite room had a strange "festival toilet" odour,the bottle of fabreeze left in there told us that this was an ongoing problem. The website states that there is a hair dryer in every room, this is not the case, so ladies take your own hairdryer! The hotel restauarant and bar area were very pleasant and all the staff attentive. An ideal base for one night to explore the peak district as there is absolultly nothing else around for miles.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Just three miles from the historic village of Hathersage, this charming country lodge dates back to 1773 and is one of the cosiest hotels in the Peak District. What's more, it's only a short drive from Sheffield and Chesterfield. The lodge, which you'll find within the Longshaw estate, offers 9 comfy, characterful rooms, a menu of hearty, seasonally inspired food, and a wide range of regularly changing cask-ales and well-chosen wines. Longshaw is a lovely place with many hidden gems: spectacular views, ancient oak woods, sleepy meadows, heather moorland, archeological treasures and millstone quarries. Locals will proudly tell you that it's also home to the oldest continuous sheep-dog trials in the country. If you've brought your walking boots, head for Hathersage - a great place to start your exploration of the area's intriguing rock formations. The area is a haven for walking and climbing, but it's also a popular with swimmers. That's because it's lucky enough to have its own heated outdoor swimming pool, set within a lawned enclosure and usually open from March through to September. There are plenty more pursuits to keep you busy, with Chatsworth House, Sheffield Botanical Gardens, Sheffield Ski Village and the ancient village of Eyam all on the doorstep. ... more less
