Accommodation

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning YHA Hartington Hall, a stunning 17th century manor house with stained glass windows, oak panelling and so many original features in an unspoilt area of the Peak District – the perfect location for our adventure weekend.

At Hartington Hall guests can make full use of the cosy lounge and games room in the hostel’s main building and in the Upper Courtyard you’ll find a handy self-catering kitchen plus laundry and drying facilities. Bedrooms are situated in the main building, The Barn and the Coach House.

Our accommodation for the trip will be in 4-bed and 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group. If you’re booking with a friend let us know and we’ll make sure you get a room together. 

NOTE: There is car parking at this hostel, but it is limited and there may be other guests parking at the hostel too.

Food

Our meals for the weekend will be prepared on-site at YHA, for breakfast and dinner. Saturday lunch is not included, as we will be out all day, so please bring something to eat for Saturday lunch, such as a packed lunch.
