“Arrived with high expectations of Sladen Lodge and it did not disappoint - highly recommended.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We chose Sladen for a family get together, attracted by the location and the fact that it offered accommodation where we could all dine and relax together, either inside or, weather permitting, outside. From the information and photographs on the website we had very high expectations of the property and it did not disappoint in any way. It is very well furnished and equipped and all the bedrooms are lovely. The views from the front of the property are stunning. Owners very helpful and lots of useful information on the website. Excellent walking (eg up onto Stanage Egde) from the front door - no need to move the car! There is a railway line very close by but this did not cause us any disturbance. Hathersage itself offers a number of pubs, shops etc but the main road is quite busy.

“An absolute gem!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Well, what can I say - a fantastic stay in a beautiful property in even more beautiful surroundings.
Staying at the lodge as a group of friends, along with our young daughter, we wanted the quality of a hotel with the convenience of self catering and my, did we get that. The lodge itself is immaculately presented with all of the facilities that you would need, including not one, but two dishwashers (great for those big group dinners), a washer and drier, double oven and enough glasses for whatever drink might take your fancy! Team that with bed linen and towels of excellent quality and comfortable beds and furnishings, and you have a perfect home from home.
What's more, the lodge is in the perfect location for exploring the peak district and all that it has to offer. We spent our days wandering the village, which has all of the amenities that you need, taking long walks in the amazing surrounding areas and stopping in to pubs here and there for the much needed refreshments! If you fancy going further afield Chatsworth House and Bakewell are brilliant day trips and only around 25 minutes drive from the lodge.
What's more, the owner of the lodge was close by and very friendly (but was in no way intrusive) and gave us some good dining advice and suggestions for walks in the surrounding area.
The only minor downside for some might be that the lodge looks out across the railway line but we didn't find this an issue at all and wouldn't want anyone to be put off by it. It wasn't noisy and our daughter in particular loved watching and waving as the trains tootled past with the occasional hoot of their horn. Also, they didn't seem to run at night and the lodge was so peaceful in the evenings, meaning a great night's sleep was had by all.
Overall, a fantastic break away in a lovely location in very high quality accommodation. I think it may turn in to an annual visit!

“perfect stay in the perfect location”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We hired sladen lodge for a 3 night stay for a hen do for 16 people. The house was perfect we had plenty of room for everyone to spread out and the kitchen is so well equipped we never worried about running out of glasses or plates for the whole weekend. It's very well located for getting to and from Sheffield for a night out and taxis were quite reasonable. There isn't really anything I could say that was at fault would love to stay again.

“What a find! Excellent all round.”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

So pleased I found Sladen Lodge, what a great place to stay. Firstly the location is superb. Just on the outskirts of Hathersage, which is a lovely place. There is so much on the doorstep within walking distance, shops, pubs, restaurants and of course fantastic walks. The property itself was outstanding. Each bedroom had it's own en-suite, and the beds could be made into either 2 singles or one enormous double which was great when organising a big family group. The kitchen was superbly equipped and included two dishwashers which was important when we had 14 adults and 3 young children staying. The dining room was spacious, so too was the sitting room, with a couple of other spaces for those that wanted a quiet area. Each bedroom had it's own TV although we did have some trouble with getting 3 of them to work, but this wasn't too much of a problem as there was a large TV in the lounge/sitting room. Sladen Lodge is very well heated and we did have a little problem trying to get the heating just right for us. Bedrooms 1 & 7 face the front of the building and have the nicest views, whilst the other rooms are at the back. It's well worth deciding what you want from the bedroom you choose, some are nearer the lounge so may be noisy if several people are staying up late, whereas rooms 5, 6, 7 and 8 are in the 'quieter' end of the house. There was also a separate toilet. The additional utility/drying room was superb with plenty of space for us to hang up our damp walking kit. We met one of the owners who was really helpful, and I'm sure the little problems we had with the TV's and the heating will be resolved. There was not one single complaint from our group and we would all definitely stay again.

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

What a wonderful place for a family gathering. We had our golden wedding here recently and the setting and everything in the house was perfect. The overflow of guests stayed some in Julie’s Bed and Breakfast next door and also some at the George hotel just a couple of hundred yards up the road. We had such a great time. Sladen Lodge has a lovely family feel and all the extra comforts we required, and the best part was not having to do all the beds and bathrooms afterwards as would have happened if we had had it at our own home. Emma from Gourmet Express did the catering for us and could not have been bettered. All the food was delicious and we can highly recommend her and her lovely staff. We now need an excuse for another visit and only hope we don’t have to wait until our Diamond Wedding Anniversary!!!!
