6 places left
Starting from Alstonefield, which is one of the prettiest villages in the Peak District, we will take a steep descent to meet the River Dove at Milldale and here have a coffee break and a chance to feed the ducks. Crossing the footbridge, we will head South, beside the gushing River Dove, where we'll meet a variety of rock features: Dove Holes Caves, Ilam Rock, Lover's Leap and finally the stepping stones that cross the river. Then it's up to the lofty heights of Bunster Hill for stunning views, before crossing the open fields towards Stanshope and back to Alstonefield where a refreshing pint can be had at The George Pub.
