Here's one for all you OutdoorLads dog owners! OutdoorLads is once again hosting a hostel weekend that both you and your pooch can enjoy. This time, we will be exploring a lesser known corner of the Peak District in Staffordshire - a perfect area for some lovely long summer walks with our four legged friends.
Sheen in Staffordshire, is a quiet village perched on a gritstone ridge. The Staffordshire corner of the Peak District is quiet and little explored but there’s so much to see here. The Manifold Valley Track, Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail link to make some great flat(ish) cycling. They’re all ex-railway lines and their lengths are dotted with fascinating industrial heritage details.
Up on the tops, the moorlands of Flash and Longnor are as windswept and magnificent as any in Yorkshire or Derbyshire. It’d be great to have a haven like Sheen to retire back to after a day up there.
More sheltered are the valleys of the Dove and Manifold rivers which offer pleasant walks among some pretty impressive rock towers, caves and gorges. While we’re talking about impressive – explore ‘The Roaches’ jagged, ragged ridges with vertiginous peaks.
Sheen is a great little bunkhouse which, unusually, is happy to take multiple dogs, and we'll be off out during the day on a good leg stretch for humans and canines alike!
Please bear in mind that all dogs will need to be well socialized with other dogs and people. You'll need to provide all food and bedding for your own dog, too.
What to bring
As well as your dog, his or her food, bedding, toys, treats, poo bags, etc - you'll need to bring items for yourself! Bedding is not included, thius being a bunkhouse, so please bring a sleeping bag or sheets and a duvet, and a pillow. You'll need the usual, toiletyr bad, clothes for walking and clothes for in the hostel.
Food & drink
Please bring all your own food / treats / bedding / toys for your own dog!
We'll have the now traditional OutdoorLads buffet on Friday evening for us humans, with a continental breakfast provided Saturday morning, and also breakfast on Sunday. On Saturday night, we'll cook and eat together, and help will be appreciated from the event leader in preparing this.
