…it’s not called that by accident…
I chose the picture of Moorside Farm Bunkhouse carefully. Have a good look and you’ll see all the features I want to highlight.
There’s an old stone barn converted to accommodation. A 300 year old building with open-plan pine clad interiors. The building is available to groups and can house 20 in comfortable bunks. What the picture doesn’t show is the lovingly made meals using locally sourced produce.
There’s the picturesque village setting, high up on the Staffordshire Moors (it’s not called Moorside Farm by accident). Hollinsclough is a charming cluster of stone buildings, around the River Dove, a sturdy looking chapel and a great deal of peace and tranquility. You’ll need to drop in on nearby Longnor for supplies, though.
And, best of all, towering over them are The Roaches, distinctive jagged peaks beloved of walkers and climbers seeking amazing views and vertiginous thrills. As well as that there’s easy access to the fabulous scenery and landscape of the Peak District.
