My wife and I hosted two parties between 12th and 21st April for 16 family members and then12 friends from our home village. Everyone's opinion was that Sladen Lodge was the perfect venue - very spacious with 7 ensuite bedrooms, plenty of comfortable seating, a large dining table, both inside and out, and very well equipped, even sharp kitchen knives and a sharpener! We used the services of Express Gourmet several times and they produced the most delicious meals for us. Hathersage village is a 5 minutes walk away with every basic thing you could want, even an excellent butcher.
The Hope Valley is a delightful place to visit, and I think we shall return.
Sladen Lodge was the perfect place for our large family gathering of 13 this Easter. Its location was ideal for some great walking, as well as having the town of Hathersage minutes away from the Lodge. There was lots to do and see in the area - our kids loved the open air swimming pool and playground, and we had a fantastic meal at the Hathersage Social Club. We were able to take a trip by train from Hathersage to other picturesque areas of the Hope Valley.
The Lodge itself was extremely well equipped for our group, we cooked each night and couldn't fault the kitchen for its equipment. 2 dishwashers and an additional large fridge for drinks were ideal. Bedrooms were super comfortable and all ensuite, and there was a large living room and dining area as well as a well maintained large garden.We were lucky with the weather and ate outside most days with stunning views.
Our booking was handled excellently and we couldn't have wished for a better stay. Would definitely recommend to others and will be booking again no doubt!
The location of the Lodge is superb, with breathtaking views and a few minutes walk into Hathersage, and close to fabulous walks.
The Lodge is spacious, well equipped and ideal for a gathering of family or friends with 7 large, comfortable bedrooms and modern ensuite bathrooms. The lounge has enough sofas for every one to have a comfortable seat, but there are other areas to sit quietly. The dining room is spacious and we took advantage of a catering company one evening, recommended by the owners which was wonderful.
The owner herself was very helpful and accessible and gave us lots of useful information before we arrived.
.I would highly recommend Sladen Lodge.
Lots of useful information on booking and prior to arrival. We found the lodge to be very well presented with every little thing thought of. 7 first class ensuite bedrooms and plenty of lounging and dinning room. Kitchen well equipped for catering for a large group. Perfect place to enjoy a very relaxing winter break.
We stayed over New Year and the owners had left us some Prosecco and a beautifully decorated Xmas tree! There's plenty room for parents, grandparents and grandchildren to do their own thing and plenty to do in the area.
