Opened in 1973 as an experimental hybrid of YHA & non-member accommodation.
October 10th 2022
This popular outdoor centre, set in former 19th century farm buildings, was never owned by the YHA. It was owned by the Peak District National park and run in partnership with the YHA. This cooperation with the YHA ended in 1988. In recent years the centre has been run by Nottinghamshire County Council for the benefit of its own schools, other organisations and private groups.
Everything you could ask for in a fire pit and what a location
October 11th 2021
Situated in the Peak District’s Woodlands Valley on Snakes Pass, Hagg Farm, and the small self contained John Hunt Base, are available for hire by groups of friends, clubs, cultural organisations and families.
The firepit has proven a success for all that tried it out. A large stone pit surrounded by off the ground bench seating. Not to mention the ample tree coverage, sure to stave off any drizzle thrown at you. We expect a fair few marshmallows to be toasted here!
