Peak District Bunkhouse/hostel in the Roaches


The Roaches Bunkhouse provides group accommodation at the foot of The Roaches, a famous gritstone escarpment along the southwest edge of the Peak District. Worn into fantastic shapes by the elements, the rocks stretch for 3 miles with magnificent views over Tittesworth reservoir. The edge provides some of the best gritstone climbing in the country, with famous routes such as Valkyrie and The Swan.

Roaches Bunkhouse is an ideal base for groups of climbers, walkers and cyclists, with glorious walks, climbing and cycling from the doorstep in all directions. The rooms are simple with 2, 4, 6 or 8 beds in bunks. There is a communal area with tables and chairs, a log fire and DVDs. Self-catering facilities are available in a small kitchen with fridge, cooker, microwave, kettle, cutlery, crockery, pots and pans. There are warm showers, toilets, wash basins and an outdoor area with BBQ. The Bunkhouse provides mattresses and pillows but you will need to bring your own sleeping bags.

Parking is provided free on-site. Sole use bookings only. Dog friendly for up to 3 well-behaved dogs.

Roaches Bunkhouse is in the village of Upper Hulme in the Peak District National Park, 150 meters from Ye Old Rock Inn pub, which provides excellent food and draught ales. The Roaches Tea Room is 1/2 a mile away and The Three Horse Shoes, The Lazy Trout and The Winking Man are all within 2 miles. Leek, 3 miles away, is the closest town for shopping.
