Come and explore a quiet, yet spectacular corner of the Peak District on this cosy early-spring bunkhouse weekend in Sheen.

Converted from a gritstone barn, YHA Sheen is an independently-owned very smart bunkhouse, close to the beautiful Dove and Manifold valleys. It has a large TV lounge with comfy sofas, central heating and a well-equipped self-catering kitchen. 

Great walks in the south-western part of the Peak District can be accessed right from the doorstep, including the Manifold Valley / Trail, Thor's Cave at Wetton and the magnificent Wolfscote Dale. The village hall in Wetton offers an amazing afternoon tea.

Depending on who's interested and doesn't need to rush off Sunday morning, there is also the possibility of a shorter morning walk with a pub lunch on offer.

Sleeping Arrangements:

14 bunk beds in two dorm style rooms - 1 x 8 bed room and 1 x 6 bed room. Bedding is provided. 

Dogs: Sorry, this event is not suitable for dogs.
