Edale is one of the classic and most popular parts of the Peak District, with great walking in every direction, including Kinder Scout, the start of the Pennine Way, and Mam Tor and the Great Ridge. Despite its proximity to major cities, the Dark Peak around Edale remains unspoilt, with many places where it's possible to enjoy a true sense of remoteness.

Dalehead Bunkhouse is a renovated gritstone farmhouse on a working hill-farm at the head of Edale Valley.  In a relatively remote location, away from the main village, it is still easily accessible. The acommodation is cosy, with a wood-burning stove - perfect for an autumn weekend!

The main focus of the weekend will be one or more day walks in the surrounding, dramatic Peak District countryside. We will be walking in a challenging environment, where the weather is very changeable, so please come prepared.

Edale is easily reached by train from Sheffield or Manchester and more information is provided below.

For those who don't need to rush off, on Sunday there is an optional shorter walk and (hopefully) a pub lunch.

Bedding: 

Linen and pillows are NOT provided - bring your sleeping bag or duvet / sheet and a pillow. Mattress protectors are on all the beds.

Four-legged friends:

Unfortunately this event is not suitable for dogs.

Feel free to contact Skip with any questions you may have.
