National Trust - Dalehead Bunkhouse, Derbyshire

Sleeps 14 - 20 3 Bedrooms 20 Dining

Large bunkhouse in the Hope Valley sleeping up to 20 for family holidays and activity breaks in the Peak District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. National Trust - Dalehead Bunkhouse, Derbyshire, sleeps 14 - 20 in 3 bedrooms.

The National Trust Dalehead Bunkhouse is a renovated gritstone farmhouse on a working hill-farm at the remote head of Edale. The superb location of this popular family bunkhouse is amongst the spectacular scenery of some of the highest hills in the Peak District, including Kinder Scout, Mam Tor and Burbage. With no public roads and only one building nearby, it is a lovely secluded and isolated place to stay.

Heating is by an infra-red heating panel system, and there's a wood burner in the sitting room. The supply of logs ensure that this is a warm and welcoming place to relax.

The well equipped kitchen has a 6-ring gas hob and large gas oven, plenty of cooking utensils and everything is very clean and well looked after. Lots of work surfaces in the kitchen ensure that catering for large numbers is easy. Upstairs there are 3 dormitories with comfortable wooden bunk beds. In total there are beds for 20 people: 1x dormitory sleeping eight (bunkbeds), 1x dormitory sleeping six (bunkbeds) and 1x dormitory sleeping six (single beds).  There are also modern toilet and bathroom facilities. One bathroom is downstairs and one upstairs, with washbasins and an electric heated shower in each.

Please note that some ceiling beams and doorways are low.

The location of this bunkhouse makes this a very special place to stay. A stream runs past the back and sheep graze in the adjacent fields. The views are stunning all around and show the Dark Peak at its very best. The dazzling and diverse scenery of the Peak District and Derbyshire makes it a paradise for walking, family cycling, mountain biking and adventure sports such as caving, rock climbing, hang gliding and paragliding, but there's also plenty to do for those with a more relaxed approach to nature and the great outdoors.
