This charming country lodge dates back to 1773 and is one of the cosiest places to stay in the Peak District. What s more, it s just a short drive from Sheffield and Chesterfield. The lodge offers 10 comfy rooms, a great menu of hearty, seasonal-inspired food, and a wide range of regularly changing cask-ales and well-chosen wines. Longshaw is a lovely town 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. The area is a haven for walking and climbing, but there are plenty of other pursuits to keep you busy, with Chatsworth House, Sheffield Botanical Gardens, Sheffield Ski Village and the historic village of Eyam all on the doorstep.
