With Mam Tor, Winat’s Pass and Kinder Scout in the vicinity, and the Great Ridge affording dramatic views over the White and Dark Peak on either side, Hope Valley is one of the most popular areas of Derbyshire among walkers. But it also has another, rather less well-known reason to visit. Crowned Country Hotel of the Year by The Sunday Times, Losehill House is a contemporary boutique hotel and spa hidden within the very midst of this rolling landscape and offering some of the best accommodation around.

Originally a 19th century Arts-and-Crafts style ramblers’ hostel, the building has been elegantly converted to provide guests with a relaxed, very luxurious place to rest their head after a day outdoors. All 23 ensuite rooms and suites are beautifully presented and come with a full Derbyshire breakfast and complimentary use of the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and outdoor hot tub overlooking Win Hill. The Thalgo Spa is open for day visits too and has an extensive range of revitalising spa treatments available.

Losehill is perhaps most celebrated for its award-winning restaurant, however, which is well worth a visit alone. Included in The Times’ 20 best wild places to eat in Britain, the emphasis here is upon proper fine dining using local organic ingredients. Its elaborate seven-course taster menu has developed somewhat of a reputation among foodies of the region, while the Afternoon Tea is a reminder of how such things should be done.

Located halfway along the Hope Valley train line connecting Manchester and Sheffield, Losehill is perfect for a car-free rural escape from either city. And with several lovely villages nearby – including Hathersage (with its popular heated lido) and Castleton (where four show caves and the ruins of Peveril Castle can be found) – there’s plenty to keep you entertained in all weather. If you’re looking for a rather special base for a weekend exploring the Peak, this is a great choice.
