COVID-19: East Lodge CLOSURE

A message from the Hardman family

Following the Government’s announcement on Friday 20th March, it is with immense sadness and a very heavy heart that we must now temporarily close our hotel and restaurant.

During this difficult time, we will be doing everything we can to support our staff and the local community. But can we just take this opportunity to thank our guests for being so understanding?  We have been overwhelmed with messages of support, all of which are very much appreciated by all of us.

If you have a reservation soon, we will be in touch with you to discuss alternative arrangements.

Telephones will not be manned, however, we’ll continue to send out any updates to you to keep you fully informed, but if you have any questions then we’re always here to help, just drop us a line at

Please keep an eye on our website and make sure that you follow us on social media channels. In the meantime, we’ll be actively planning for a time when we can celebrate the re-launching of East Lodge and you’ll, once again, be able to enjoy our special brand of hospitality in the heart of the Peak District.

You already know that East Lodge is a special place for your special occasion, and we are absolutely sure that everyone will want to celebrate once this awful nightmare is over.It just remains for this family to, very earnestly, wish you and your families all the very best during this difficult and challenging time.

David & Joan Hardman & family
