I have been camping in the peaks for years, usually in Edale. We have often walked past the inviting looking Stonecroft on a cold day and thought "it looks so snug in there, we should stay sometime"...
So when I decided to propose to my girlfriend on a hike this year I figured it would be a good place to rest up for the night. Julie, the owner was extremely helpful when I contacted her about planning, even placing Champagne in the room for me for when we returned (which she kindly sourced for me as well). The Kinder Suite was wonderful, with locally sourced toiletries, a fruit bowel with fresh fruit, a great choice of tea's coffees, a great sized bed, free wifi and towelling dressing gowns, which always go down well!
We came back like drowned rats but Julie kindly hung our stuff up to dry, the lounge was very snug and the local pubs both do great evening meals, although I would say the Nags head edges it.
The breakfast choices were immense, we went for the full English but there was dozens of choices for people with specific requirements. The food was excellent, all seemed to be locally sourced, not a single fault, the bread was a stand-out as well.
We chatted with the other couple staying over (on their honeymoon as it happened) and they said the other room was lovely as well, toilet / shower are not in that room due to the layout of the large house, but they are not shared either since the other has an en-suite so they had no issues with that.
Views over the hills were great, even if the weather wasn't, but we came away sad to be leaving and will definitely stay again and recommend to others.
