Saturday Walk: 10-12 miles (16-19.5km)

North Lees campsite lies in a beautiful, quiet valley, shielded within woodland along a gently babbling brook, just north of Hathersage and right below Stanage Edge in the Peak District National Park.

The idyllic campsite is within a short walking distance of the slopes and magnificent vistas of Stanage Edge, England’s largest cliff.

Options for walks abound and depending on preferences and weather – local highlights include Stanage Edge and the Burbage Valley, Ladybower Reservoir, Win Hill, Bamford Edge and Bamford Moor.  My idea for the Saturday walk is about 10-12 miles (19.5km) but can be shortened . . . There’s also the possibility, for those who’d prefer a more relaxed weekend, to simply chill at the campsite (hopefully in the sun!) or visit the National Trust’s Longshaw Estate, only a few miles away. 

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

Hathersage, with several excellent pubs, is only a short walk from the campsite if you don’t fancy cooking dinner, or if you'd just like to wander over for an evening pint. 

As an aside, the Church of St Michael and All Angels in Hathersage dates back to the 14th century.  In the churchyard there is a grave said to be that of Robin Hood’s henchman, Little John.
