If you are staying at Losehill House over the next few weeks, or if you simply plan to spend some time in the Peak District, we can recommend some fantastic wintery walks for you that are all an easy distance from the hotel.
Be sure to pack your walking boots, your raincoat and a good map. Be sure to stop by at the hotel once you’re finished for some well-earned relaxation!
A 6.5 mile walk beginning in Hathersage, this takes you through some utterly beautiful locations. Pass through country tracks up to Stanage Edge – there will almost certainly be some rock climbers out, and you may want to have a go yourself! The walk returns to Hathersage along countryside lanes.

Ridge Walk: Mam Tor to Losehill
Despite being very elevated, this walk is fairly easy – so it’s a great way to take in the incredible views while still enjoying a leisurely stroll. 5 miles long, this walk takes you over and beyond one of the Peak District’s most recognisable hills, Mam Tor. It starts at the National Trust’s Mam Nick car park and finished at Lose Hill, very close to our hotel. More info.
Ladybower Reservoir and Derwent Edge
With a length of over 10 miles and plenty of climbing, this walk is more advanced than the previous two listed, but well worth the effort! The trail takes you alongside the reservoir and through lush woodland, up onto the moor tops which are populated by historical cairns and fascinating geological structures. The walk begins at Cut Throat Bridge so we recommend you drive. Once you arrive back at the hotel, be sure to treat yourself to well-earned dip in our hot tub to thaw out! More info.
