Pindale Farm: An absolute dream for D of E Groups.
June 22nd 2021
At Pindale Farm we love D of E groups. So much so that we are converting our Powder House into a D of E leaders hut, complete with WiFi. In addition to our barn accommodation, we have dedicated camping areas for D of E groups away from the public camping grounds, where there will be no vehicles in the field with the tents. To top it off, we now have a freshly resurfaced car park and new high speed WiFi system!
Spot us on channel 4!

The keen eyed amongst us you may have spotted our very own Pindale Farm during the break on channel 4. The tin man can be seen looking over castleton while strutting his way over the great ridge.
It’s easy to see why he chose that spot! The views from across this side of the Peak District truly are something else. It won’t be long until you can experience it for yourself. While you might not see the tin man, there’s plenty opportunity to see things equally fascinating. Whether the summit of Kinder Scout or the depths of the castleton caverns. The area is rich with potential, especially for the explorers. So when restrictions allow come to Pindale and see what you can find ,like an amazing hostel for a start!
Lots of groups stay at Pindale Farm before starting the Pennine Way.
