Sladen Lodge sits in the midst of the Peak District National Park.  It nestles in the Hope Valley amongst gently rolling hills and dramatic gritstone edges.  Hathersage village is a few minutes walk away from the Lodge.  It is a walker’s paradise and a sightseeing haven which is located in a truly beautiful part of England.


Hathersage is a traditional, pretty and unspoilt village with a range of  small shops, pubs and restaurants.  Food, dining out and a pint of beer are all close by!  There are tennis courts, a childrens playpark and a 30m heated outdoor pool which is open from April to October.  There is a good range of convenience stores for those last minute provisions.


“wonderful attractions, plenty to see and do for all ages, pubs, restaurants and shops within walking distance of the Lodge – what more could you want on your doorstep!” Mrs Viney


Hathersage really is the perfect base for a walking holiday.  You don’t need to drive anywhere – you could spend days walking from Sladen Lodge and never take the same footpath.   Alternatively, you could take the bus or train and return to the Lodge on foot.    We can help you plan your route - please contact us and we can supply information according to your requirements.
