We have looked after this lovely area for over 100 years. From the high moorland of the Dark Peak Estate on the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border to the gentler rolling landscapes of south Derbyshire, we now care for some 40,000 acres of wild natural beauty. Staying here brings you close to some incredible wildlife, like white mountain hares and wild kestrels, as well as glimpses into our fascinating industrial past.

With its spectacular and contrasting scenery, the Peak District is a region of outstanding natural beauty and one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The National Trust has been hard at work here for over 100 years and now cares for some 40,000 acres. High Peak Estate is the largest estate, over 33,000 acres of high moorland straddling the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border. Although only ten miles from the centre of Sheffield, the Longshaw Estate boasts more than 1,700 acres of open moorland, gritstone edges and ancient oak woodland, while the 4,400 acre South Peak Estate lies in the magnificent limestone hills, centred upon the well-known beauty spots of Ilam and Dovedale. On the foothills of the Peak District, Lyme Park contains an Italianate mansion and Victorian garden surrounded by a medieval deer park of almost 1,400 acres.Hardwick Hall is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District, while the gentler landscapes of South Derbyshire contain pretty village and bustling market towns. The area is steeped in history with ancient castles, grand houses and sites that reveal the ingenuity of our industrial past.

    Our fourth time here!

    WE LIKE WHITE EDGE LODGE, IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY, WE TRUST THE SUPPORT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG (THE POWER FAILED AND THIS WAS SORTED OUT IMMEDIATELY) WE LIKE THE SHOPS AT CHATSWORTH AND CALVER AND WE LIKE THE WALKS IN THIS AREA. We had a great time at White Edge Lodge. This was our fourth time in the Lodge, we love the location and the Lodge is very atmospheric. It means being away from it all whilst still staying in a very comfortable home.

    Spotless house!

    Made enjoyable.....Being out on the moor at night, sunsets, deer and stories about how NT had renovated the property when it was derelict, being able to walk out from the door in many different directions. Many thanks to the cleaners - the house was spotless! and to the caretaker for the lovely biscuits and welcome tea/coffee.

    Perfect for Winter walking

    We felt very welcome. The cottage was beautifully presented and comfortable. It's perfect for winter walking as the utility area is very warm and everything - boots/coats etc - dry overnight.
