    More Info

    Set in a secluded spot overlooking the spectacular Win Hill in the National Peak District, Losehill House is the perfect place to escape to for a few days of relaxing knitting in luxurious surroundings.  This privately owned, elegant country house boasts a sumptuous lounge and restaurant with an outdoor terrace that offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding rolling hills.

    Their award-winning Orangery Restaurant has been recently listed in The Times as “one of the twenty best wild places to eat in Britain”, and offers delicious homemade dishes using the best local, seasonal ingredients.  

    Thalgo Heath Spa

    If you want an extra treat during your stay then you could pop across to the onsite spa where you can book a treatment for yourself and take advantage of their indoor heated pool, sauna and outdoor hot-tub. Slippers and bath robes for the spa are provided in every bedroom.

    Other things to do and places of interest

    There are many other things that you can do during your stay at Losehill House, with the charming country towns of Hope, Castleton and Edale just a short drive away. The area has some of the UK’s best outdoor and countryside activities to offer including a local cave network, fabulous cycle routes, and for the more daring paragliding and ballooning! Alternatively, if you don’t want to venture too far then you could take a gentle stroll from Lose Hill to Mam Tor to take in the breath taking scenery.

    The rooms are priced for workshop participants. If you would like to bring along a non-workshop participant then please book a single room and then contact us to add a partner to your room. Please contact Sue for more details: sue@debbieabrahams.com
