Gather family and friends around the gritstone Shooting Lodge, newly renovated to cater for parties of up to 32 and surrounded by discrete tented lodges each sleeping a family of 6. Grandparents will enjoy the comfort of the shooting lodge rooms, children will adore the luxurious tents. Wood fires throughout for cosy evenings after endless adventures on the heather moorland that rises up from this private farm at the start of the Pennine Way.

The lodge has a large party room with open fire, dining room in the old stables, kitchen and children's movie / activity room. In the summer a marquee extension can be added. There is a fully integrated music system inside, and fire cauldrons and barbecues outside.

The British-made tents each have 3 bedrooms (1 king size, 2 twins), fully plumbed in bathroom with bath and shower, and a large living, dining and cooking area around a wood-fired stove and oven. Outside is a sunset verandah with fire cauldron and gas Weber barbecue, and outdoor picnic seating. The 4 tents are spread around the farm along the bubbling stream, so families can retreat from the melee or join in as they wish.

Breakfasts can be provided and there is a farm shop on site. Home cooked ready-meals are also available for cooking in the tents or the lodge.

200 yards down the lane, the village of Edale welcomes thousands each year, with 2 pubs, 2 cafes, the moorland visitor centre and a general store. Edale station links to Manchester and Sheffield for easy access by train.

The farm is wonderfully private but surrounded by drystone-walled pastures and the open heather moorland of Kinder Scout beyond - a paradise for walkers, mountain bikers, rock climbers, paragliders and cavers.

We have been hosting shooting parties and holiday-makers for five generations in the same house. We have two young children and love nothing more than hosting large gatherings. Weddings, family reunions, school reunions and clubs are all welcome.
