Dalehead Bunkhouse, Dalehead Bunkhouse, Upper Booth, Edale, Hope Valley, S33 7ZJ
Dalehead Bunkhouse is a renovated gritstone farmhouse on a working hill-farm at the remote head of Edale Valley. Providing basic but comfortable accommodation heated by log burner supplemented by infrared radiant heat. There is a kitchen with fridge/freezer, a lounge, dining room and plenty of parking. Visitors must bring their own sleeping bags, pillows and towels. Edale is a very popular destination for walkers, climbers, mountain bikers, hang-gliders or for just enjoying the magnificent scenery. It lies between the gritstone of the peat-topped Kinder moors to the north and the cave-riddled limestone of the White Peak to the south. Despite its proximity to major cities and the straightforward rail service to Sheffield and Manchester, the Dark Peak remains unspoilt, with many places where it is possible to enjoy a sense of remoteness. Dogs are welcome on the ground floor of the bunkhouse.
