A private country retreat on Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park, Upper House provides luxury accommodation for up to 21 guests, with the facility to host a further 100 for special events. With a Medieval Great Barn comprising Banqueting Hall and Pub, woodland sporting estate and exclusive fishing rights to Kinder Reservoir, Upper House was the home of The Knights Hospitalier and a wayside Inn before becoming the hunting lodge of the Mayor of Manchester, who hosted many famous Victorians here. In the 20th Century it became the retreat of Agatha Christie and many Derbyshire influences are found in her works.

This castellated house offers complete seclusion in a spectacular moorland landscape, with unparalleled views and private access to the Kinder Massif and yet is located conveniently close to all major rail and road links in the UK, and is only 25 miles from Manchester city centre and airport. It is less than an hour away from all of the Peak District attractions.

The house offers variety of luxury dining experiences, with a welcoming fully equipped breakfast kitchen with four oven AGA, a formal dining room in the house with an adjacent kitchen equipped for all your dining requirements, a cottage kitchen in the Butlers Quarters and the spectacular Medieval Great Hall and Garret Room served by the catering kitchen.

Your stay can be self catered or we can assist in co-ordinating bespoke caterers to suit your requirements. There are many on-site activities that can be arranged for your party, including guided clay pigeon shooting, fishing, mushrooming, walks, arts and crafts workshops, pampering and entertainment such as murder mysteries.
