A Luxury Losehill House Spa and Stay in the Peak District #Review

A Luxury Losehill House Spa and Stay in the Peak District: September 2018

The lovely Luxury Losehill House Hotel & spa is perched in rural idyllic bliss, right in the heart of Derbyshire’s Peak District.  A hidden gem, off the beaten track, tucked away in a cosy countryside hotspot, offering guests a secluded paradise away from all the hustle and bustle.

During our visit, the weekend weather was perfect, with sensational sunshine which added to the overall magnificence of the place.

Summer season was in full swing and Losehill House was in full bloom. The entrance was adorned with fabulous floral beautiful hanging baskets, quaint clock, super stone archway and wonderful wooden door which gave the place a relaxed romantic time standing still feel.

Our guest room, cosy, warm and had a homely feel, mixing countryside twee with contemporary fixtures and fittings, sympathetically done to retain the buildings original charm and character.

The spacious room, had an archway leading to a cosy snug area, including a wardrobe stocked with fluffy robes and slippers, vanity area with dresser, mirror and a terrific tea tray with biscuits, the perfect hideaway offering a private place to pamper and dress.

The bathroom offered, an amazing view overlooking onto the lovely Losehill House entrance, with that country style feel with the green tiling, but had modern amenities with a heated towel rail, sunken bath tub, super sink area, huge mirror with lighting and a selection of Cole & Lewis toiletries for you to use throughout your stay.

Not only is Losehill House a beautiful building, but their breath-taking unspoilt views are enviable.  Why not take a seat in their gazebo or patio area and have a glass of fizz while you take in the spectacular scenery.

Talking of bubbles, pop onto the terrace and take a dip in the hot tub, sit back, relax and savour those perfect Peak District views.

The fabulous fully decked terrace area has lazy loungers or why not head to the blooming lovely patio doors which reveals the onsite pool, sauna and steam room. The ideal place to getaway from the crowds and wind down.

Thought the you time was over, well think again, continue your personal pamper session by spoiling yourself, with a range of spa treatments, at the onsite spa. My Thalgo mini facial delivered by my lovely therapist was a perfect unwind, as that day, time got the better of us, as traffic caused a delay on route, but the team were flexible and did everything possible to ensure that I made my treatment which was muchly appreciated.

Dinners are divine at Losehill House, and always begin in their inviting lounge area, with a selection of pretty pre-dinner hors d’oeuvres, for our evening we had these cute goats cheese macaroons paired perfectly with some olives. The berry mocktail mixed well and perfectly balanced.

Moving onto the Orangery restaurant, that has a romantic, calming vibe, offering more scenic views and a sensational skylight window. The Menus are created using fresh seasonal products and where possible local produce, so vary and change daily.

After indulging in homemade breads, starters included the bold and brilliant beans on toast, definitely not from a tin, delivered with finesse and flare.  Also, the gorgeous goats’ cheese and chive parfait with candied walnuts, pickled apple and toast crisp.

Mains included the beautiful Roasted heritage carrot with pomme Anna, courgettes and young leeks and the yummy Barbecued baby gem with butternut squash gnocchi, tenderstem broccoli and hazelnut pesto.

One word – desserts, a moment in the meal where my ears prick up even more and again my eyes were also wowed by the Losehill offerings.  Sweet or savoury, they have you covered, with their amazing artisan cheeseboard offering a variety of quality cheeses such as Godminster, Blacksticks blue and much more, along with a healthy serving of fruit, celery, biscuits and a good dollop of chutney.

Tickle your sweet taste buds with the wonderful White chocolate and lime mousse with Hope valley honey jelly and puffed wild rice.  Opt for the pretty petit fours and peppermint tea to finish off proceedings with a pow!

Laura and Ruth’s service throughout the meal was exceptional, attentive but not intrusive, friendly but not too formal.

Morning has broken, so take time to engage with the surroundings, breath in the fresh country air, hear the sheep baa, meet the resident sheep and perhaps take a walk and tackle Derbyshire’s famous Mam Tor peak.

After working up an appetite, head on into the Orangery for breakfast or opt for the leisurely lazy option and have the team pop the breakfast up to your room.

Morning paper already delivered to the door, so could be perused while enjoying a divine Derbyshire breakfast with a pot of breakfast tea or if you have work to do, take continental desk side, which offers a range of fresh segmented grapefruit, melon balls, pastries and freshly squeezed orange juice.

The Orange juice won’t be the only thing fresh, as once you leave Losehill, I am sure that you will feel as fresh, fabulous and relaxed as I did.

Thank you for reading 😊
