This beautifully converted lodge is the idea bolthole for a couple looking to celebrate any occasion, set in the Peak District and boasting its very own steam room.
If you’re an outdoorsy couple in search of a romantic getaway for two in the Peak District, look no further than this stunning Grade II-listed lodge. Set on the outskirts of Matlock within the owner’s grounds, a charming market town famed for its hydro and spa treatments, this property is perfectly placed for making the most of the fabulous walks, cycle trails, riding centres and adrenaline-pumping activities this area has in abundance. After action-packed days, return to this stylish bolthole to relax in the steam room or enjoy a candlelit dinner for two on the patio.
Inside, exposed beams and stone walls contrast with fresh white decor and chic contemporary appliances to create a modern hideaway that’s infused with period charm. Rustle up romantic meals in the stylish, contemporary kitchen area, with a Nespresso coffee machine for that all-important caffeine hit ahead of another busy day outside. Afterwards, return home to revitalise and replenish in the steam room before retiring to the lounge area, tucked into a cosy nook, while watching your favourite shows on the Smart TV. Outside, a beautifully maintained courtyard is a peaceful spot for al fresco dining while listening to local wildlife.
A haven for keen walkers and cyclists, find a plethora of trails and tracks from the doorstep, all against the stunning backdrop of this area’s limestone and gritstone hills. For an easy hike, follow Lovers Walk from Matlock Bath or for something a little more challenging, take on the Black Rock to High Peak Junction loop. Venture into the national park itself to walk the Great Ridge or Shivering Mountain, both 23 miles away, or Limestone Way, 9.5 miles away, before stopping for a touch of culture at Chatsworth House (8.5 miles) or Haddon Hall (7.5 miles). Return to Matlock for an afternoon’s canoeing before grabbing a bite to eat in one of the independent restaurants.
