2021's BIG Event at this venue was such a success, we had to come back!

There are three accommodation options for this event:

  • Hostel

  • Camping

  • Teepee (camping add-on)

    • The teepees can fit up to 3 people (4 at a push). If wishing to use a teepee for the weekend, you must sign up to this camping event page and the teepee page. Only one person per teepee needs to sign up to the teepee page.


This weekend is a celebration of all things outdoors. This outdoor centre is perfectly located in the heart of the Peak District for walking, cycling, mountain biking, climbing, and we'll even have use of the on-site high-ropes course!

In terms of evening entertainment, this event will be a relaxed affair. We'll have a bar of course, but rather than a late night disco, it's more about having a space to chat, catch up with old and new friends, and maybe even play board games!

OutdoorLads will have exclusive use of the site, designed for large groups like ours. You can be sure that everybody you meet over the weekend will be an OutdoorLad or a member of staff at the venue.

You can do as much or as little as you desire over the weekend (but we do advise you to get stuck in!).


We're planning a wide variety of events over the weekend. The event is ideally located for walks, cycling, trad/sport climbing, water sports, and the site even has it's own high-ropes course!  Of course you may just choose a less vigorous option and go and visit a local National Trust property.

The events below will go live on the website on Wednesday 29 June and will be bookable from 18.00 on Sunday 3 July, to give everyone a chance to see what events are on offer.
