We stayed at the cottage overnight during our long-awaited trip to Chatsworth House. There is a bus that goes directly from Chatsworth to a pub just down the road from Moorland View, so it was very convenient. We absolutely loved everything about the cottage, from the amenities to the kitchen, super modern bathroom and brightly lit, comfy bedroom. My favourite part was sitting in the outdoor seating area and looking out on the moors, where we could see the cows going home and hear sheep bleating in the distance. My friend loved the three adorable super friendly dogs belonging to our hosts who would sit outside the fence waiting for us asking to be petted! One of our hosts was even kind enough to drop us off at the village the next morning. Everything was perfect and we are considering going again sometime!
My husband and I stayed here last night for our wedding night. The lodge is just perfect. We have stayed in lots of holiday apartments and cottages and this one is by far the cleanest (it is totally spotless) and most well equipped. The kitchen has every utensil and all the equipment you could need for a weekend, week or even longers stay. Quality items not cheap supermarket ones. The rest of the lodge is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic break, stunning views from the lounge, comfy sofas and a nice large TV. The bedroom is beautiful with a large firm bed and another TV ( there is also one on the kitchen!) Another review said the garden area was not dog secure, we didn’t have a dog with us but the owners have obviously replaced the fence as this area would now be secure for a dog with a good sturdy fence that no dog could get through. The owners were helpful when asked but not intrusive so you felt like you were there alone and able to relax without being bothered by anybody which was nice however when we did have a question Sarah was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
We would return here happily and I would recommend this lodge to any couple wanting a nice little break in a relaxing environment.
Overall a very nice stay. It was a very warm and cosy accommodation. Lovely views. Straightforward check-in/check-out. Main negatives for us were that the kitchen is on different level to living area and bedroom, poor wi-fi and phone reception when we were there and one of the sofas was very uncomfortable.
We absolutely loved our stay here! The cottage is in a stunning location, is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We took our 15 month old daughter and Sarah had very kindly set up the cot and put a high chair out for her. It was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the Peak District.
I stayed at Moorland lodge with my daughter and cocker spaniel. On arrival the impression was one of cleanliness and tastefully decorated accommodation. Teabags, coffee, milk and loo roll were available and gratefully received. My daughter made up the sofa bed with spotlessly clean linen which had been left in the wardrobe. Lovely, wild views are to be enjoyed from all windows.
The bathroom was bright and nicely designed except for the sloping ceiling above the sink! This could be an issue for anyone tall.
The little garden space was more than sufficient, especially given the views of moorland, fields, cows, sheep and horses. It would have made my life a lot easier however, if the garden had been securely fenced to prevent my dog from escaping. The open fence poles wouldn't even keep in a large dog. Having to keep my pet on a lead for every little toilet break was a bit tiresome, especially given all the rain! It would be easy to add stock wire to the fence and would be welcomed by all dog owners, I'm sure.
The main bedroom is bright , comfortable and spacious and the kitchen, although small, is well equipped, nicely furnished with everything you need and benefits from large patio doors on to the private garden.
The country setting is lovely with easy access to Baslow, Chatsworth and surrounding villages.
The location was perfect for getting away from it all, with glorious views of the Baslow countryside. The cottage was beautifully decorated and equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We hope to be back sometime in the future!
