Situated within walking distance of Hathersage, in its own grounds, extremely well comfortable and well furnished, and the kitchen could not have been better equipt.
Unfortunately we had a room with a very deep bath which we couldn't use, and no slip proof mat, we should have looked and changed to a different room, but thought they were all the same.
An incredible weekend with the chaps. The house is very well catered to a large group with single beds for all, tonnes of space, ensuites and a large garden with a big table and enough seats - there's even two huge bbqs!
Booking was hassle free and Julie was very welcoming. I'd recommend to any large groups looking to take on some activities out in the peaks.
The lodge is just as described on the website.. excellent facilities,also suitable for children. The lodge is of very high standard the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely.
We stayed with for a large family gathering and we found the lodge to be very spacious..the communication is great.. quick replies and always will to help.
Would definitely recommend this place to stay for any occasion
The house is in a brilliant location, just a very short walk to the shops, pubs and cafes of Hathersage. Lovely views across the valley which we were able to enjoy from the sunny patio. Bedrooms and bathrooms are of a very good standard and the large dining table made meals great fun for our party of 13. We were particularly impressed with how well equipped the house was - endless glasses, plates, cutlery etc, two dishwashers, good ovens, all of which made our stay very easy. We would definitely recommend and we will visit again.
Second time at Sladen Lodge and it exceeded our expectations. They have a policy of upgrading every year which was evident with the very stylish Bathrooms. The accommodation is first class, Quality beds and Bedding, Spacious lounge, Well equipped Kitchen, high speed broadband, everything you need. We did not have any complaints at all but we left a comment about a very slight problem. Julie (The owner) phoned me when I arrived home and thanked me for the comment and advised me that it would be dealt with immediately. Sladen is ideally located on the edge of the village and is only a five minute walk to the centre. It is ideally located for ramblers being very close to Stanage Edge and other great walks. We will be returning.
My wife and I hosted two parties between 12th and 21st April for 16 family members and then12 friends from our home village. Everyone's opinion was that Sladen Lodge was the perfect venue - very spacious with 7 ensuite bedrooms, plenty of comfortable seating, a large dining table, both inside and out, and very well equipped, even sharp kitchen knives and a sharpener! We used the services of Express Gourmet several times and they produced the most delicious meals for us. Hathersage village is a 5 minutes walk away with every basic thing you could want, even an excellent butcher.
The Hope Valley is a delightful place to visit, and I think we shall return.
Sladen Lodge was the perfect place for our large family gathering of 13 this Easter. Its location was ideal for some great walking, as well as having the town of Hathersage minutes away from the Lodge. There was lots to do and see in the area - our kids loved the open air swimming pool and playground, and we had a fantastic meal at the Hathersage Social Club. We were able to take a trip by train from Hathersage to other picturesque areas of the Hope Valley.
The Lodge itself was extremely well equipped for our group, we cooked each night and couldn't fault the kitchen for its equipment. 2 dishwashers and an additional large fridge for drinks were ideal. Bedrooms were super comfortable and all ensuite, and there was a large living room and dining area as well as a well maintained large garden.We were lucky with the weather and ate outside most days with stunning views.
Our booking was handled excellently and we couldn't have wished for a better stay. Would definitely recommend to others and will be booking again no doubt!
