Accommodation

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning YHA Edale, a grand old country house, and one of the highest residences in the Peak District with a view to match.

With the Great Ridge between Lose Hill and Mam Tor to the south and the Dark Peak moorland of the Kinder plateau to the north, YHA Edale Activity Centre is surrounded by stunning scenery.

Walkers will enjoy the numerous footpaths into the hills, dales and moors. With fantastic facilities, experienced staff and proximity to peerless natural wonders perfect for enjoying everything from caving to canoeing, Edale is best placed to offer incredible activity adventures in the great outdoors.

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. And we will also be providing afternoon tea and snacks. Saturday lunch is not included, as we will be out in the morning up Kinder Scout and do not know a specific return time. Please do bring something to eat for Saturday lunch, this could be a sandwich or you can make up lunch in the self-catered kitchen when we get back.
