“Lovely appearance but missing welcoming touches”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a short week stay at Moorland View Lodge. On appearance the lodge is a very lovely place with a boutique feel to it. It is not in the most quiet or tranquil location but it is easily accessible.

The lodge was very warm which was lovely after being out walking most of the day in the cold. The sofa too was very comfortable.

There were a few bits that I felt let the lodge down; First being that there was no welcome pack. It is nice when staying in self catering accommodation to have all instruction etc, together, in an obvious place, rather than having to search through the drawers to find them.

Having stayed in many self catering places, at a range of prices, we have always been welcomed with a hamper containing basic essentials such as; bread, milk, butter, etc, to accommodate for your first morning there. However we did not receive this from Moorland View Lodge. There was tea and coffee, but that was it. We had been out walking before arriving at the lodge so the last thing we wanted to do was go back out to get milk, etc.

You are only provided with one towel each. Being a female it's not ideal to have to dry your body and hair with one towel. I honestly would have preferred another towel instead of a robe.

Also you only get given one towel in the kitchen to dry up with and get hot dishes out the oven with, again it's not ideal to be getting hot dishes out with a wet towel. Maybe providing two towels or oven gloves and a single towel would have been better. Another slight issue that we had is that the plates and bowls aren't microwavable. You are provided with a dishwasher and washing machine, however make sure you take your own washing detergents with you.

The wifi was very hit and miss. It seemed to drop out a lot and the signal wasn't very strong. The best signal seemed to be if you sat in the bedroom, but you could still not get full signal. Mobile signal in the area isn't very good either, so we were relying on having good wifi.

Unfortunately we didn't find the bed very comfortable. We found that the mattress seemed to slope down either side.

The bathroom was a bit of a challenge. With the sloped roof throughout it meant that washing, getting out of the bath, etc you had to duck or bend down to avoid hitting your head.

We can't comment on the owners as we did not see or hear from them throughout our stay.

Unfortunately this property was just not for us. I think if more information was given and we had been more prepared on what to take it wouldn't have been so bad.

Hi Lauren,
I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at the Lodge.
I do however think that I need to clarify a few points for other potential guests reading your review.
All guests are provided with a bathrobe, bath towel and hand towel.
The Wedgewood bone china dinner service is not microwavable, but plenty of cooking dishes and pans are provided.
A tea towel is left out on the side in the kitchen. An oven glove is provided in the 3rd drawer down to the right of the cooker. For stays of longer than a few days, more tea towels are provided.
Dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid is provided, however washing powder for clothes isn't.
Welcome packs are provided for full week bookings, however for bookings of less than a week, you will find tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, toilet rolls, kitchen rolls and other such basic items.
The bed is an Hypnos bed. It has an excellent reputation for both quality and comfort and also has the royal warrant.
Due to the rural location of the Lodge, internet speeds are not fast. While the internet is fine for surfing, emailing etc, you would not be able to stream.
Mobile phone signal varies according to your provider, some being better than others (again due to our rural location), if you are concerned about this then please check with your provider before booking.
While I am always available to guests by phone or email, or just by knocking on my door; I do try not to intrude on guests privacy during their stay at The Lodge. Past experience has taught me that guests value their privacy and will contact me if they need something.

A beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean lodge. Easy to get to and close to Chatsworth, a dog friendly pub serving good food and other attractions of the Peak District. Will hopefully return next year for the Xmas market with less rain! Otis our dog enjoyed playing with Millie and Mollie dogs from next door. One suggestion Sarah would be a lamp for the lounge, otherwise a beautiful place to stay. Sarah, thanks for sorting out Thursday night.

Fantastic little find. Needed somewhere to stay for a couple of nights while on a course in Chesterfield.
Brilliant Base to go exploring from.
Very clean and is a home from home.

Will be back :-)

I've stayed here twice now and think the barn is superb. The owner is extremely helpful, the location is beautiful and the barn is quality throughout. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area. Will be booking again soon

“Excellent self-catering accommodation”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Luxurious, well-equipped, very clean converted barn which felt really homely. Lovely views over the moors and a convenient location in the Peaks.

Very helpful and friendly owner; follow her recommendations on restaurants in the area!

Ideal for families with dogs or with a young child. Our daughter enjoyed the company of the two friendly, calm neighbour dogs and having an outside garden.

Negatives: no real minors, only that it got very hot during the first night that we stayed in the barn (bedroom is upstairs / low, sloping ceilings), but then, it was the hottest day of the year so far!

Just a note: the wifi-reception is not great (personally I didn't mind having a wifi-break ;-)). And if you are looking for complete tranquility, do not go here, because there are two roads nearby.

Would definitely recommend and go back when staying in the area again.
