Extra long beds and extra luxury in this slice of Derbyshire Dales heaven

The Warren is the latest addition to our rooms

Ever since we bought Sheriff Lodge we have been asked regularly whether we have a Family Room. Many people need a room that will accommodate two adults and at least two children.

Until now all that we have been able to offer is one of our (very well appointed) rooms with the addition of a folding bed. Anyone needing space for more than one of their children was only able to book two separate rooms - albeit next door to one another. The cost of this can, of course, prove prohibitive.

The Warren
This suite (which is situated in the basement of Sheriff Lodge) has its own separate entrance (which is for dog owners to allow access to the garden) and has a double bed (7 feet long by 5 feet wide) and up to three single beds. Which gives the suite a capacity for five people, and if we put the cot in as well then the whole family can come along.

The headroom in this room is limited - floor to ceiling height is 6 feet 6 inches. We think that this is more than made up for in the floor space and privacy that is offered.

There are two televisions, one of which has Sky TV. Both of them have DVD players and one has a Playstation 1.

The Warren is also full of a large variety of board games - from Trivial Pursuit (with a box of questions for kids, plus the usual Genus, Genus II and Baby Boomer Editions) to Pictionary, to Monopoly.

If you choose to book this room you will have the suite to yourself and the sole use of en-suite shower facilities.

 This is serviced by a Saniflo system.


Prices for The Warren

Prices for The Warren start at 77 per night and increase as you add extra family members. The most that this room will cost you is 132 - that's 2 adults, 3 children over the age of 7, and a dog (or dogs) and the cost includes breakfast - something you can read more about by following the link on the left. 

Don't forget the price is for the room not per person, so you can bring the whole family and not worry too much about the cost.

You can book this suite by calling with details of a credit/debit card or by following the links from our home page and booking online. If you follow the links and book online the price is automatically added as you add family members to the room

Dog Friendly Accommodation

The Warren is also just the place to bring your dog. With its separate entrance you can bring your dog into Sheriff Lodge without worry. We have to say that we only accept well behaved dogs (with well-behaved owners) and we charge 10 per stay per dog to a maximum of one dog (this is negotiable).

Whilst we are as dog-friendly as possible we do expect owners to follow a few simple rules;
Your dog must not be left alone in the room for prolonged periods - if you wish to visit the local attractions, restaurants and pubs without your furry friend then we can arrange for them to be looked after at local kennels - this would need advanced booking.
Please do your utmost to ensure that your dog does not jump on the beds.
Dog waste bags and feeding bowls are available.
