"A spectacular venue..."
"Spacious rooms and thoughtful amenities"
by Emor - July 2021
We had a lovely weekend here as a family group for our son’s wedding. We spent some quality time sat on the deck, relaxing, some in the hot tub. The view from the deck across the valley is amazing, such a peaceful setting. The bifolding doors really bring the outside in. The cathedral height ceiling enhances the spacious feel in the living area. The seating and dining areas are well furnished and more than ample for the size of the lodge. The kitchen is well equipped, more than enough glasses/crockery etc. Plenty of things for everyone to do in the mezzanine games area. All the bedrooms are a good size with well equipped en-suites. The lodge has some lovely quirky features, including lights and murals of the Peak District. We would have no hesitation in recommending this lodge for a break.
"What a view!"

Thank you so much for assisting with my booking this weekend. The venue was absolutely stunning and everything was perfect! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend away for my sister’s hen do; everyone loved it and already looking at when they can book Shepherd's View Lodge for a different occasion…I certainly will next year!
