Take a dramatic drive with stunning scenery through Edale and the Hope Valley!
November 7th 2018
I Highly recommend a stop off in Castleton, commonly known as the most beautiful village in the Peak District , for a stroll up to the castle, a hike in the valleys and hills, or a gentle patter around the town which sells the best home made fudge!
Edale Camping Barn
September 22nd 2017
…a lot of noise to be born from such peaceful countryside…
Edale camping barn (managed by Cotefield Farm Cottages), in Derbyshire’s Hope Valley, sits in an enviable position. Not only is it in the beautiful and popular Hope Valley, but it also overlooks Britain’s most famous long distance path – The Pennine Way. Also close by looms Kinder Scout. A ‘nearly-mountain’ which dominates the skyline just as much as it dominates the history of outdoor recreation.
Many of you will be familiar with the story of walkers from Manchester and Sheffield protesting about closed footpaths and restricted access by walking up Kinder as part of a ‘mass trespass’. This controversial event sparked a movement which arguably includes the growth of groups such as The Rambler’s Association; the formation of National Parks and the founding of long distance trails like the aforementioned Pennine Way.
The National Trust hosts a recreation of this iconic walk each year or you can explore it yourself following their route.
I think that’s rather a lot of noise to be born from such peaceful countryside as that around Edale Camping Barn.
Last day of YHA affiliation for Edale Camping Barn
February 28th 2017
Set in glorious Edale, this camping barn begins life as an independently marketed Camping Barn today
This is the last day of YHA affiliation for many of the YHA Camping Barns, including Edale Camping Barn. However some camping barns and bunkhouses have negotiated a few months extra on the YHA website, including Alstonefield Camping Barn, Taddington Camping Barn, Puttenham Camping Barn and the Elenydd wilderness Hostels of Tyn Cornel and Dolgoch. Throughout this period and beyond all these camping barns are open, welcoming guests and available via the Independent Hostels network. A full list can be found here.
