A Peak District haven with four luxurious tented safari lodges and a Victorian shooting lodge on a private upland farm at the start of The Pennine Way. Both the safari and shooting lodge are self-catered.
The splendid safari lodges have hot running water, luxurious Hypnos beds, roll top bath and shower with fluffy towels and an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area around the wood-burning stove. Each lodge sleeps six in a double and two twin rooms. Sunset verandas have comfortable outdoor furniture with woolen rugs, fire cauldron and gas BBQ. The lodges look out onto dry stone walled sheep pastures with the moorland beyond.
The shooting lodge was built in 1881 to host parties in comfort and style. It continues to do so after a major refurbishment in 2016.
Sleeping 10, the lodge has a self-contained apartment with two en-suite bedrooms and open plan living area, with a glazed wall with views up the mountain to the west. Two further bedrooms include a family room which sleeps 4, and the minstrels’ room which can be super-king or twin as you require. Dining is in the former pony stalls, with ample seating and a modern kitchen adjacent. A bar and a lounge also provide you with plenty of alternatives for all guests to find their comfort zone, and then come together for a game of billiards, a dance, or a grand dinner.
Car parking available for 10+ cars.
