About Moscar Lodge
Moscar Lodge is a Victorian shooting lodge, near Bamford, in the Peak District. It sleeps 20 guests in 10 bedrooms, both in the main house and the annex.
There are six bedrooms in the main house, all with king-size beds and en-suite bathroom or shower rooms. One of the bedrooms has a four-poster bed. There is a bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room, should you have guests who’d prefer to avoid the stairs.
The remaining four bedrooms are in the annex. Each of the bedrooms have a king-size bed and an en-suite.
On the ground floor of the main house, there is a double-length living room with plenty of squashy sofas, and a wood burning stove. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped, with a breakfast table for six. For more formal dining, there is a large dining room, which seats sixteen in comfort, and twenty without side plates.
The large cellars have been converted into three rooms for fun. There’s a bar and snooker room, and the sort of cosy cinema space in which to stash teenagers.
Outside, there’s a generous terrace with far-reaching views of the moors, and lots of lawn for games. The swimming pool is tucked beside the house in a sheltered enclave, along with another terrace, summer house and sauna. There is an all-weather tennis court that can be used all year round (the swimming pool is out of use for winter).
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“The house is presented in a great modern take on Victorian tradition, but it’s the bar that I really love. It’s decked out in a gloriously tongue-in-cheek, Del-Boy style, complete with hide-covered bar stools and glass-eyed Victorian trophies. The sort of room in which to hold extraordinary late-night conversations.”
About the Location
Moscar Lodge is about four miles from the village of Bamford, with its little train station, and about 20 minutes from the centre of Sheffield. There is a main-line train station in Sheffield, with trains taking around 2 hours from London, and less than an hour from Manchester.
Things To Do
There are many footpaths and cycle paths across the moors, and lots of destinations to visit within the Peak District. Moscar Lodge is within cycling distance of the River Derwent, with the Lady Bower, Derwent and Howden reservoirs and dams.
Further afield, there’s the village of Castleton (famous for its caves), and Hathersage, where Robin Hood’s Little John is thought to be buried. The towns of Bakewell and Buxton are both lovely to visit, and Chatsworth House has lots of events for visitors.
