White Edge Lodge

UK England East Midlands Derbyshire

You want remote? Well, actually this place is not that far from civilisation but it certainly feels like it. The National Trust own the Longshaw Estate in north Derbyshire, and this former gamekeeper's cottage has been refurbished with every comfort in mind. It might look like something from The League of Gentlemen from the outside, but step inside and you'll be amazed. There's a huge vaulted kitchen complete with Aga, a cosy sitting room with squishy sofas and a wood stove which belts out heat (essential – it can get nippy up here) and three lovely bedrooms, one of which is in the vast attic. Bed linen is white cotton, towels are thick and fluffy, and there's a bit of a wow factor bathroom with what must be one of the most extraordinary views from any loo in the land. You're in prime walking country here, and a utility room on the ground floor is perfect for muddy boots/wet anoraks/Labradors. The surrounding area is bursting with things to see and do; just down the road is Hathersage, home (allegedly) to Little John's grave; a bit further down the Hope Valley is Castleton, famous for Blue John mines and Peveril Castle, and the Derwent, Ladybower and Howden dams beyond. It's worth calling into the Longshaw Visitor Centre too get an idea what's around; pick up leaflets, guidebooks and maps of the estate. There's rather a cute tearoom too.



Open all year.


From £659 to £1339 per week.
