"Our stay was just what we ordered remote but places to visit if we wished Loved the lodge everything we needed and more the owners went over and beyond for our needs as we needed to contact them very helpful and pleasant people to deal with."
Would recommend and we will be visiting again. All in all we had a merry quiet Christmas loved it
"Very enjoyable holiday, made better by the privacy the location offered."
We knew the owners were on standby, but they didn't get involved with us and left us to our own devices. Perfect. All the things you'd want were available within the excellent cottage/shooting lodge.
Glad you had a nice stay. Property Owner
"10/10 great stay!"
The cottage is absolutely lovely. Cozy bed, well functioning kitchen and bathroom and super cost efficient fireplace! Few logs and you can enjoy it slow burn all evening. The owners are lovely and gives you all the privacy. There are few more guest houses on the farm, but we haven’t seen or heard anyone just the birds and visiting well wishing red deers! Good location too, easy drive to Bakewell as well as Roaches, Lud’s Church and Thor’s cave. Plenty of secure parking on the property. Recommended.
"We enjoyed our stay in the Shooting."
A lovely little place, cosy and comfortable, The perfect place to relax and unwind. Just what the doctor ordered. Thank you for the welcome pack. A nice cup of tea and a biscuit or three Was very welcoming after our journey.
Thank you for the great feedback. Glad you had a relaxing time. The cabin is perfect for switching off.Hope to see you again some time. Property Owner
"Once again my stay was fantastic!"
! My second stay in this wonderful little place, and it didn't disappoint. It's a pleasure to do some craft work without the distraction of home life. I would definitely recommend this little gem for some quality time out. The lodge is cosy, clean and comfortable, and will now become my second home!! Lol... Thanks again Claire for everything. Virginia

Sofa was fab, bed was fab, decking was fab, everything this unique place has is fab!!!!...the owner Claire is wonderful, really looked after me while I was there, nothing was to much trouble. The view is spectacular and wildlife is in abundance. Thank you for my stay, I will be back!!!... Virginia.
Thanks Virginia. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again in a few weeks time. Glad you liked the cabin and the location. We love it too! Property Owner
"This lodge needs a deep clean, fridge was dirty on arrival."
Very dirty sealant on the shower, dust and cobwebs everywhere especially around the windows, edges of the room and radiator in the bedroom. The decking needs a power wash and flower containers need plants renewing. The overall impression was that not much care is taken with the handover cleaning. Lodge was comfortable it it hadn’t been so dirty. Location was also good.
Thank you for your comments. The items you raised will be checked. If you had, however, spoken to us at the beginning of your weekly stay (not on check out) we could have resolved things for you, although I think your comments are quite harsh and not particularly factual. The sealant around the shower does need replacing and this will be completed immediately but I think everything else you have commented on are highly exaggerated. The fridge, and all of the lodge, is cleaned thoroughly after each booking. If it was as bad as you say I am amazed you stayed for the full week to be honest. We have, as you know, had a very dry spell and yes some of our plants have suffered in one of the containers. As the weather cools off I will look at replanting this. The decking is timber, not plastic, and does get jet washed every year, along with the garden furniture. You did say that the our place was not for you so I can only surmise that overall you weren't really happy with the cabin or the location. Perhaps, like you said a log cabin in a rural, countryside location just isn't for you! Claire Property Owner
"The Lodge was perfect for us."
The bedroom was clean, comfy and had a beautiful view from the window. The bathroom was clean and had a lovely shower with great water pressure. The kitchen was very well-equipped and we were able to prepare and cook many meals. The lounge was very cosy with the added bonus of DVDs and board games provided. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The Lodge was in an amazing location - only about 20 minute drive to lots of popular walks such as Thor’s cave and Three shires head and a 15 minute drive to the town of Leek. Would highly recommend.
"Property was fine, clean and well equipped, but not for anyone with mobility issues, said shop was 1 mile, nearly 3."
Ideal for fully able people. Should be in the write up.
Thank you for your feedback. At the time we opened the cabin up to guests the details were correct, as there was shop a mile away in Warslow. As this shop has now closed we will amend the information to state nearest shop is now 2.5 miles away in Longnor. With regard to the cabin itself it is on one level with a walk in shower. I am presuming you are referring to the 15 metre short walk on gravel from the car parking area and the two steps on the footpath/decking up to the front door of the cabin. We have not experienced any issues with this before, however we will amend the details. Claire Property Owner
"Requires a deep clean, cobwebs and dust everywhere."
(Look at top of DVD player, and behind TV) Outside could do with a pressure wash, as the chairs and table were green. A bit of attention to the outside decking area could be addressed. Restrictions on the heating as stated in the welcome pack not acceptable. You pay for a warm and cosy cottage for the duration of your stay. Not at times specified by owners!! Views were amazing. Apart from that it was ok.
Thank you for the feedback. We will look at the items you have highlighted and address as appropriate. With regard to the heating, if you had mentioned this whilst staying in the lodge we could have explained the heating controls to you if you were struggling? It has full gas central heating like another house. The only difference is it is on a bottled gas and if it runs out we replace the bottle straight away. The boiler has a timer, thermostat and a manual override and is very easy to use. In addition there is a log burner which we provide a full bag of logs for and more are available to purchase. We are in the summer months now though so most people do not require logs as the cabin is very cosy and retains the heat. I hope this didn't spoil your break away with us. Property Owner
"Lovely place to stay and very peaceful, friendly and helpful owners, will definitely stay again."
"Amazing place to stay."
Really cozy and a good location. You can’t get bored of the view that lodge gave. The scenery while driving around the area was beautiful. Claire was amazing.
"We loved our stay , loved the lodge cabin , a wonderful place to stay , lots to do around the area :)"
"Very cosy. Wood burner is a great feature."
Amazing views. Comfortable bed, great shower. Couldn’t have asked for more.
"A excellent, relaxing stay."
So peaceful and a lovely view. Time went over too quick. The lodge was equipped with everything you would need and furnishings and decor so well thought out. Thank you for a excellent stay.
"Had a great relaxing two days , beautiful lodge in a beautiful setting."
Hosts very helpful and friendly would certainly stay again. Very clean and the views was fantastic. Little touches of biscuits and tea and coffee and milk was great. Thank you we left very relaxed and was just what we needed .
"We really enjoyed our stay!"
Owners are very helpfull. Beautiful quiet surrounding. Only thing was the bed witch we found was firm. But that is personal....
"Fabulous cozy, peaceful lodge with all the facilities & more."
Would highly recommend.
"A lovely warm cosy cabin just for two, quiet, peaceful far away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, fabulous views with everything you could need, it was the perfect place to celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary."
Definitely a place we will come back to.
"An excellent base from which to explore the open vistas of Staffordshire and Derbyshire."
The Shooting Lodge affords open views from the deck and there is the added bonus of swallows darting above and around you in the Spring. The area is dotted with excellent walking to suit all levels and entertaining places to visit. Highly recommended.
Very well equipped. Ideal getaway for complete peace and quiet. Claire was a very friendly and accommodating host. Highly recommended.
"We had a lovely stay at The Shooting Lodge."
It is cosy, clean and quiet. Kitchen is well equipped. Even though we just ate simple meals. No wifi, but we didn't even mind. Great place to escape. Lots of places to go, all within around 30min drive. Great to have Claire and her husband on site but she was never intrusive. Would love to come back.
"Thankyou for a lovely stay at the shooting lodge, it was just what we needed."
Lovely comfy bed and amazing views
"We had a wonderful, restful stay at the Shooting Lodge."
We enjoyed how cosy, relaxing and warm it was and weren't ready to leave at the end!
"The perfect little hut for a very quiet break!"
No WiFi although there was good phone reception on O2. Such a beautiful location and would love to return when the weather is a bit better!
"You didn't have to go in and clean and put things write until you unpacked."
Warm welcoming hosts they were lovely the whole holiday was Great
"Very quiet peaceful location with wonderful walks all around."
"We felt it lacked a few facilities: iron, cheese grater."
Also, the shower was only just warm. However, the surrounding sceanery is stunning. Beautiful views all around.
Thank you for your feedback. Customer comments are very important to us. There is a cheese grater and travel iron at the property. The shower is in perfect working order and reaches a high temperature. Once again, thank you for your comments. Property Owner
"As described on the advert, a great little hideaway to escape for a few days"
"We had a wonderful stay."
The views are fabulous and the location so very peaceful. Lots of wildlife watching- red deer, hares and curlew. The cabin was lovely and cosy and had everything we needed. The hosts, Claire and Gary we very helpful too is we needed them. Would highly recommend and love to return!
"Excellent stay in a lovely place with all that we could want for a relaxing stay."
"Ideal location for walking and cycling."
Beautiful views and cosy accommodation. Extra touches added by owners, all in all a great get away choice for countryside lovers
"We had had to change our dates twice due to the pandemic, so glad we did."
As expected it was totally different to other properties we have rented in the Longnor area. In a fairly isolated setting with lovely views, really peaceful and great for socially distancing! The much appreciated wood burner was essential in the chilly evenings. We would have liked a toaster but as the property is powered by a low voltage caravan electric hook up that could possibly be why one was not provided. There is a grill in the gas oven but as we've never cooked with gas before it was too complicated for us to use it! We really enjoyed our stay, a very welcome break after lockdown.
"The beautiful views."
"Fantastic location for an escape to peace and quiet."
"We stayed at the Shooting Lodge for a week and it was amazing."
The accommodation was wonderful only bettered by the stunning views from the decking. A lovely place to go back to after a walk in the countryside. A big thank you to Claire and Gary for a very warm welcome. We would definitely love to come back again soon.
"This was a great little weekend away if your looking for a place to go as a couple then this is a great spot to look at"
"We had a fantastic time staying at The Shooting Lodge for a long weekend."
Gary and Claire were lovely hosts who had set the fire up ready for our arrival, left milk in the fridge and even brought some tasty homemade cheeses to enjoy! We couldn't wander far due to Storm Dennis raging outside but we didn't mind when the log burner was going and we slowly worked our way through the DVD collection. Gorgeous place to get away from it all, definitely wanting to visit again!
"Had a lovely escape ."
... just what was needed . The lodge is beautiful and cozy . Middle of nowhere which was amazing , no distractions . The owners were very helpful . I couldn’t have wished for a better weekend away . Iv booked again already for September. Thank you :)
"It was a present for my partner and she was blown away, a great beautiful location"
"Lodge was ideal for a couple to chill and relax in lovely quiet and lovely surroundings, The hosts where very accommodating, and if you needed them they where there."
Every thing you needed was there in the lodge . Would recommend.!
"I have stayed at Shawfield Farm twice before although this was my first stay in the Shooting Lodge."
As always I was given a warm friendly welcome by Claire and Garry. The Lodge was every bit as comfortable and well equipped as I knew it would be. I loved the quirkiness of it, the comfortable bed and of course the amazing view. I can't recommend it highly enough. The best thing has to be sitting out on the decking with a glass of wine looking out for the deer. I hope to return.
"Perfect for a couple get away."
We did nothing but take in the beautiful scenes, breath in the country air and relax.
"The shooting lodge is ideally placed away from any town or village with amazing views of the land and hills."
So what was needed to get away from a busy life and relax. When we wanted, Buxton with its caves, museums and walks, Bakewell with its tarts and iron mills are only 20 minute drive away. I would recommend thus Lodge to anyone and we will certainly done going back.
"We had a lovely relaxing break here."
It was the perfect place to unwind and spend quality time together. It is remote but the views are something you will never forget. The hosts were friendly and helpful and i would recommend this happily to anyone. A thoroughly enjoyed break.
"Overall a lovely venue & host"
"Fabulous cabin, would definitely stay again."
"A beautiful lodge, wonderful hosts."
Couldn't do enough. Loved the shower and interior design. Perfect to relax in front of the log burner on a rainy day/night. Beautiful views. Peaceful. Would definitely recommend.
"This lodge is very well equipped and ideal for a couple looking for a real get away."
It is quiet and peaceful and the owners are friendly and helpful. An ideal base for touring the Peak District.
"The shooting lodge was beautiful, it contained everything we needed and the setting was just perfect for our brrsk, looking out onto tbe Peak District watching tbe wild deer."
The lodge wad exceptional and no doubt 'Well be back'
"Hired The Shooting Lodge for my elderly parents."
Unfortunatley that week was not good weather and they both felt cold in the lodge.The owners kindly adjusted the timer but they still felt it was cold and the heating should not have been on a timer but would have been better controlled by the people staying in the lodge.Logs could be purchased from the owners for the log burner which was used each evening.The lodge is quite a drive from the town but if it is a quiet holiday your looking for then this is ideal.Very clean and well looked after.
"Absolutely beautiful lodge."
It is immaculate and clean with a well equipped kitchen for cooking. The views are stunning and so peaceful. Would highly recommend for a short getaway in the beautiful countryside. Would definitely love to visit again. Thank you!
