Thornbridge Lodge is a beautiful country cottage situated on the edge of the village of Great Longstone in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Ideally located just 2 miles north of the market town of Bakewell, 1 mile from the pretty picturesque village of Ashford in the Water and 10 minutes away from Chatsworth Estate. Its enviable position right next to the popular Monsal Trail allows you to enjoy the freedom of a car-less weekend if you choose. The trail runs from Bakewell to near Buxton making off road walking and cycling a pleasure on the converted former railway line with lovely cafes and country pubs en route.

Its enviable position right next to the popular Monsal Trail allows you to enjoy the freedom of a car-less weekend if you choose. The trail runs from Bakewell to near Buxton making off road walking and cycling a pleasure on the converted former railway line with lovely cafes and country pubs en route. Its idyllic situation is perfect for families and is the ideal place for exploring, relaxing and enjoying many local attractions. The beautifully presented cottage stands in the grounds of the Thornbridge Manor (also available to rent for larger groups) yet affords much privacy with its own entrance, parking enclosed garden and super patio for outdoor dining.

This includes the infamous Pack Horse in Little Longstone, The White Lion in Great Longstone, and the Monsal Head Hotel with the fabulous traditional Stable Bar and fantastic outside seating area looking north westerly down into Monsal Dale.
