Did a long weekend for two 11-13th July 2014 at "Red LIon House".
This is surprisingly spacious accommodation (Sleeps 6. Three bedrooms rooms; one en suite) yet has a very intimate, cottage atmosphere. The fireplace with lion atop, that gives the place its name is really beautiful. The fireplaces in everyroom have been preserved. In fact the whole place has been tastfully restored to a very high standard of modern comfort but totally in character with the original style. There is a private secluded rear garden to eat out in. It is right in the village near to two shops; perfect for groceries, essentials and newspapers! You can get local gossip and international news at the same time. Had a nice meal in the Charles Cotton Hotel; good food, good service and reasonbaly priced.
Enjoyed cycling the Tissington trail...and it is down hill all the way home.....though you might want to beg a lift up to the Hartington starting point!
The location is ideal for exploring the the White Peak be it by car , on foot or by bike.
Interesting church and churchyard.
