TRAVEL: Escape to East Lodge, Derbyshire

Are you in need of a well-deserved rest? Take some time out to relax, unwind and indulge at East Lodge Hotel and Restaurant and absorb the stunning surroundings of the Derbyshire Peak District.

The four star venue is one of the closest hotels to Chatsworth House; Britain’s favourite stately home set in the 1,000 acre Chatsworth Park.


East Lodge boasts a range of bedrooms including two Luxury Four-posters, a selection of large Superior rooms and a couple of Standard rooms. And, rumour has it that one of the Superior rooms is haunted – but which one, you’ll have to discover that for yourself…

If you’re visiting the hotel by car, you’ll be greeted by a quarter mile, tree lined private drive before the country house comes in to view complete with acres of beautiful landscaped and floodlit water gardens.


On entrance to the hotel, you’ll find an informal relaxed bar area and reception. Check in then be escorted upstairs to your room.

Each luxurious en-suite bedroom is tastefully designed, individually styled, modernised yet retaining its unmistakeable traditional country house feel.
In your room you’ll find fluffy bathrobes to match the luxurious Algotherm toiletries carefully selected especially to soothe and relax you while you soak up the pleasures of a hot bath or long shower after a hard day’s work or play.
Plus you will find all the facilities and amenities you would expect in a luxury hotel, including Samsung televisions, a full satellite package including Sky Sports and Sky Movies, DVD players with access to a library of DVDs, tea and coffee making facilities, direct dial telephones and complimentary Wi-Fi – some of the bedrooms even boast built in waterproof televisions in the bathroom.

If your budget stretches, we’d recommend a stay in the Luxury four-poster. A vintage metal framed four-poster takes centre stage in the room surrounded by floor to ceiling mirrored wardrobes, a sitting area overlooking the window with picturesque views and an impressive bathroom with a free standing bath tub, shower and TV.

The setting of East Lodge is simply superb – despite the hotel’s easy accessibility in the heart of England you could be excused for thinking you were in a remote country house of great peace, serenity and tranquillity.

Walking, fishing, golfing and bird watching are just some of the attractions within easy reach of East Lodge – there are so many opportunities to soak up the vibrant local Derbyshire culture.

– A veritable country retreat, an oasis of comfort in a time-pressured world and all in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
