The centre is close to many famous rock climbing ventures such as Stanage Edge, and to the classic caves of the area such as Giants Hole and Peak Cavern. Cycling enthusiasts can challenge themselves on the Hagg Torr descent, a cycle route that runs past the end of the drive. Walks from the door lead onto the high moors of Kinder and Bleaklow and around Ladybower reservoir and dams. Many sites of historic and environmental interest are within easy reach such as Chatsworth House, Eyam and Buxton, yet Sheffield is only 20 minutes drive away.

Hagg Farm holds an AALA licence for a range of adventurous activities, and outdoor leadership can be arranged for groups or individuals in advance. Hagg Farm is also a registered provider of national awards in mountain walking, climbing, caving and first aid, and offers skills courses in all of these.
