Two Owls Lodge nestles in a beautiful wooded area in the small Derbyshire village of Darley Dale on the edge of the Peak District National Park - an ideal retreat for visiting the Peak District's many attractions. Walkers can enjoy wonderful walks along trails, over dales and across peaks or even over the rugged wild moorland. The adventurous have no end of choices; hot air ballooning, rock climbing, caving and kayaking to name just a few and there are plenty of great days out including Chatsworth Stately Home (just ten minutes away), Haddon Hall, Castleton Caves, Peak Rail, Youlgreave, Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock where you can visit the Heights of Abrahams offering a bird's eye view of the stunning Derbyshire scenery! For those looking for something a little more sedate, there are also quaint villages, farmers markets and antique shops to browse, or alternatively, just sit back on the terrace with a glass of wine or stroll out and explore the surrounding wooded trails.
Sitting within forty eight acres of private woods, Two Owls Lodge affords wonderful views of both the rolling valley countryside and wooded areas. A haven for wildlife, there are plenty of good opportunities for bird spotting including two owls which live close by. Beautifully presented throughout, the lodge has a modern, yet elegant country charm and offers light and spacious living enhanced by stylish furniture and quirky antiques and collectables.
Two Dales village is a short walk away and offers a Post Office, village pub and shops including a grocery store for provisions. Matlock is just five minutes away by car with a good range of amenities including a Sainsbury's supermarket and plenty of bars and restaurants.
With the whole of The Peak District National Park on the doorstep, Two Owls Lodge is ideal for couples and small families seeking a short break or longer holiday, whether it be to simply relax and unwind in a beautiful setting or explore the areas many attractions.
