LocationLosehill Lane, Edale Road, Hope, Derbyshire, S33 6AF, United Kingdom
16 rooms and five suites.
All rooms have a kingsize bed, flat screen TV and bathrooms stocked with Thalgo spa products, as well as lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
The luxurious Edale suite has its own private entrance, a standalone double bath and a wet room shower – perfect for honeymooners. Otherwise opt for a Deluxe King double– we especially loved Room 4 and Room 10. Room 5 (a King double) has wonderful views.
Eat & Drink
With meat from Derbyshire Dales farms, eggs from Bamford, veg from Buxton and bread baked in-house, Losehill House majors on sourcing good local food.
Hearty appetites will love the fillet of White Peak beef served with sautéed wild mushrooms or braised shoulder of local lamb. We enjoyed the roast salmon served on a spinach risotto with samphire, followed by melt-in-the-mouth lemon tart and a selection of local cheeses. Afternoon tea in the lounge with toasted teacakes is just the tonic after a day in the fresh air.
Served until 10:00. Tuck into Derbyshire oatcakes, local sausages and lashings of freshly squeezed orange juice.
Available 24 hours.
See & Do
Walking hereabouts is a must, and you’ll want to hit one of the hill trails or moorland walks looping through the Peak District – whether it’s an easy ramble or a demanding climb with superlative views.
Nearby pretty villages include Castleton, watched over by the ruins of Peveril Castle, where you can explore the Peak cavern (less poetically known as the Devil’s Arse!) and Speedwell cavern, where a boat takes you along an underground canal. Buy some local blue stone jewellery from the village shops.
Other places within easy reach include the festival town of Buxton and Chatsworth House, seat of the Duke of Devonshire. If you’re into more adventurous stuff, mountain biking and potholing can all be arranged.
Book a de-stressing or revitalising body treatment in the Losehill House Spa, where therapists use marine-based Thalgo products. Try an invigorating sea salt scrub, a de-tox hot stone massage or a pampering facial. Sweat it out in the sauna, clock up some lengths in the indoor pool or soak in the outdoor hot tub, with its wide-open view of the Dales.
