Stonecroft Country Guesthouse is situated in Grindsbrook, the most central of the beautiful and historic hamlets forming the Edale Valley. It’s surrounded by probably the most stunning scenery in the whole of the Peak District, and provides the ideal base for getting outside to observe the natural beauty of the area.
Awake from a good night’s sleep to the sound of birdsong and, as you take the first view through the window, observe the gorgeous morning light beginning to illuminate the landscape of the Edale Valley, see sheep and cows grazing peacefully and mist on the tops of the hills.
Then, enjoy the surroundings of the house in the dining room as you have a hearty and tasty vegan or vegetarian breakfast that includes as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. Many of the ingredients have been awarded an Environmental Quality Mark (EQM), and are organic wherever possible.
At Stonecroft Country Guesthouse we take allergies and lifestyle diets very seriously and have many years’ experience in this field. The kitchen at Stonecroft is gluten free. We have been awarded with Gluten Free Accreditation for a number of years, have won many awards for allergy catering. Your host is both a qualified award winning chef, coeliac, vegan with allergies and a judge for allergy awards, so guests can visit safe in the knowledge they can relax and enjoy their holiday without the worry of their dietary requirements.
If you are keen to get out very early, take advantage of ‘Breakfast to Go‘ and take in the views from the edge of Kinder as you eat your breakfast!
There are many cafes, pubs and restaurants in the area but if you are exploring the hills we can provide packed lunches and fill water bottles / flasks to give you the freedom to really “escape” for the day.
Guests are welcome to read local guide books, watch television or just relax in the comfortable sitting room.

Stonecroft Country Guesthouse Location
Stonecroft Country Guesthouse is circled by the towering slopes of Kinder Scout to the north, the Great Ridge of Mam Tor to the south, Win Hill to the east and Jacobs Ladder to the west. Edale is also known to many as being the start or end point of Britain’s most famous long distance hiking trail, the Pennine Way.
Whilst staying at Stonecroft Country Guesthouse, you can head off in pretty much any direction and explore wild, beautiful uplands, with mighty gritstone summits, moorland streams and waterfalls. Walking in Edale isn’t just about Kinder Scout, however. Staying at Stonecroft means you can walk from the door in every direction and there are walks suitable for all abilities.
If you don’t fancy a walk, why not visit the world-famous Blue John Caverns in nearby Castleton, or one of our lovely local stately homes, such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall or Lyme Park? We have a comprehensive visitor information pack in each bedroom to aid guests in making their choices for the day’s activities.
At the end of the day, why not return to a cream tea in the garden in the summer or in front of a roaring open fire in winter? (All diets catered for.)
