Details

Our fantastic location in the heart of the Peak District gives you access to wonderful countryside, interesting places to visit and towns / villages to explore.

Our two self contained accommodation buildings, the Lodge and the Farm House have their own kitchen and dining/lounge room with a LCD TV, DVD player and WiFi access. Having exclusive use of a building, rather than shared use of a larger building, is popular with our visiting groups enabling them to set up their own home from home. The Lodge and Farm House can be booked separately for groups of up to 38, or together for groups of up to 72.

The Lodge is all on one level and has a disabled toilet/shower room, making it suitable for wheelchair users and those with mobility difficulties.

Our large camp site, along with its kitchen and dining room to meet and eat, is ideal for introducing people to camping and is available to be booked by groups. Teepee’s are also available to book.

We have a number of meeting and conference rooms available for day and resident groups. Combined with our accommodation, grounds and facilities these enable us to host many different events including birthday parties, family gatherings, reunions, band/choir/theatre/church groups, conferences, team building events and weddings receptions.

Instructed activities are available for part or all of your visit and include:

- High & low ropes courses
- Zip wire

- Rock climbing & bouldering
