  • "This was our 3rd stay at Stonecroft Lodge & as always on our arrival everything was perfect for a comfortable & cosy stay."

    Christine & Andrew are lovely & although they give you complete privacy they are always available to help if you should need anything.

  • "Stonecroft Lodge is a quality place to take some time out."

    It is really clean, well kept with added gestures including a loaf of bread, and milk in the fridge being provided on arrival. We would highly recommend treating yourself to a stay in this peaceful, relaxing place which is in a great location for exploring Derbyshire.

  • "Thought the apartment was very nice and very quiet, and we would be happy to stay there again."

    Only problem we had was with the shower head wanting to hang down and face the wall. Perhaps it was us, but the only way we could keep it in place was by wedging flannels behind it. Mirrors were in need of a clean. Apart from those minor things it was all very satisfactory. We appreciated the bread and milk left for us on arrival.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Stonecroft Lodge."

    The owners were very pleasant and welcoming. The accommodation was very clean, and well equipped. The summer house was nice to use on an evening for a comfortable read. The area was very quiet, which added to the relaxing atmosphere. Plenty to do around the area including Kedleston Hall, Carsington Water, etc. The Great British Car Journey well worth visiting especially on a rainy day. Also visited Ashbourne, Buxton and, of course, Belper. Would definitely like to stay here again in the future.

    Very clean and comfortable. A good base for getting out and about as well as catching up with family. Will return very soon we hope.

  • "Spacious annex above triple garage, which I found comfortable and relaxing."

    Easy parking on the driveway and a beautiful garden to look out onto and enjoy. I appreciated the Smart TV when indoors, and enjoyed getting the bus into Derby (about 5 minutes walk to the bus stop). The popular destinations like Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock are an easy drive, many roads with great views. Wirksworth town, and nearby Black Rocks were an unexpected delight. Great location and lovely hosts.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Stonecroft Lodge."

    Weather was good and we enjoyed eating our evening meals in the garden area. During our stay a new high speed wi-fi was installed and works well. There is a good bus service that we used about 10 minute walk to bus stop. One way runs to Matlock and Bakewell and the other way to Belper and Derby.

  • "What a fabulous property."

    We found everything to be perfect for our needs. The accommodation is ideal as a base for enjoying the many and varied aspects of Derbyshire. We were extremely fortunate with our allocated weather and whiled away many hours sat outside the summer house soaking up the early evening rays.

    The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped for all our needs. Well situated to reach much of the southern Peak District. The location was very quiet and had beautiful views. Bed is really comfy. Dishwasher, washing machine, wifi and smart tv were much appreciated. Heating and hot water very efficient. Highly recommend.

  • "A beautiful, comfortable apartment with everything we needed."

    Owner is a lovely lady. We used it for a few days when moving house as we had a short delay between sale and purchase and it was ideally positioned near to our new property. Unfortunately, because of the forecast for heavy snow, we had to vacate early to ensure we were able to get to our property which is much higher in the hills nearby. Would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Derbyshire as it is well positioned for exploring the area.

  • "Very cosy and we found it ideal for what we wanted."

    Quiet and handy for visiting the White Peak area. There is a bus service nearby which we used a couple of times but need a car to make the best of the locality. We will certainly check availability if back in the area. I followed the directions given coming via Cross O The Hand and missed the property; would have been easier directed from Wirksworth. A very minor point and not related at all to the actual property and facilities.

About the location


Carsington Water 2.5 mile; Ashbourne 5 miles.

Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District lies the lovely village of Hulland Ward, which, nine centuries ago, was the Royal Duffield Forest of Frith. Hulland Ward is made up from a number of smaller hamlets including Hulland Moss, Hulland Upper, Nether Biggin and Hulland Village and is comprised of a scattering of traditional brick-built cottages, old farmhouses and barn conversions, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and offering a number of country pubs renowned locally for excellent service and fine cuisine. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls and many fine coaching inns. The town offers a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, Carsington Water is one of the country's premier watersports centres, offering excellent sailing and a host of other activities including walking, bird watching, cycling and bridleways, whilst Alton Towers is just 25 minutes away!
