Travellers' Choice
Owned and run by the Salt family for over 30 years, this private club and hotel is close to the Peak District National Park, Horsley Lodge Hotel offers a quiet retreat for those looking for a comfortable stay, fabulous food, an 18 hole championship golf course, or a conference and wedding venue. Just driving through the gate is promising, but as the house appears at the top of the drive, your destination of Horsley Lodge has such beautiful views with bedrooms and bathrooms combining the comforts of home with stylish design. Modern chic meets old style country retreat. The hotel has a clubhouse restaurant available to hotel guests who become "members" for their stay. The award winning interiors give a plush feel and staff create a friendly atmosphere. The restaurant serves a variety of good value food for guests to suit all tastes with emphasis of course on sustainability and good " farm to fork" ethics. This fine Country House built 150 years ago has 12 rooms and 2 cottages, each have super-king size beds, surrounded by fine fabrics and wall coverings giving each room an individual design, most with a spectacular view of the Par 3 ninth hole and beyond to the foothills of the Peak. With its charming bars and cafe , its not just an 18 hole golf course We look forward to welcoming you to see for yourself. Social Memberships available.

Fantastic stay - the Salt Suite is a real home from home. The photos don’t really do it justice, it is larger than we thought. The sauna and roll top bath were a real treat. Great character property in a lovely area! Fantastic hosts.

The staff were disappointed with this Brian as we know you were annoyed about not being able to book 3 familys in for Father's Day, and they could not honour the booking due to current guidelines. You spotted 4 tables of golfers who were all seperated by the required distance and alledged "rules being broken". We have not had a new chef, but we have made our clubhouse members only. You were here for Sunday lunch (which is available to everyone) as was I with my family, enjoying a delicious meal in the same room and had one eye on customers including yourselves, who all seemed fine at the time. It was only when you called up later to try to RE-book for father's day that this review came in. With your 474 contributions we do take your comments seriously, however on this occasion the title and content were not merited as we were only trying to stay within the law in very trying times for the hospitality business. We do appreciate your business and welcome you back when I hope you can review things more accurately Regards Richard Salt

We stayed in The Barn Cottage - What a cosy and welcoming holiday get away. The perfect setting to celebrate our wedding anniversary (wish we'd had the weather to enjoy the beautiful garden too) Due to indoor eating not being possible at the time of our stay, the owner was extremely helpful in finding us an "outdoor restaurant" for us to have our anniversary meal - thank you

We stayed in Salt cottage which was a beautiful stone building. Beautiful green surroundings, quick drive to shops and only 50 minutes to some spectacular walks in the Peak District. Close to Alton Towers too. We really loved the big bath and sauna room in the cottage too.
