Sheen Bunkhouse is close to the Manifold Trail and the Tissington Trail between the rolling dales of the Derbyshire Peak District.
Race the trains of the past along both old railway lines, with the ease of the flat surfaces that the trains used to run across. The Manifold trail tumbles down the gentle Manifold Valley on eight miles of tarmac track. It is ideal for young cyclists, so we recommend you explore this cosy valley trail on your family holiday at Sheen Bunkhouse.
The Tissington Trail is a gravel trail from Ashbourne through Tissington to connect with the High Peak Trail at Parsley Hay, providing access to 40 miles of off road cycling through the stunning Derbyshire coutryside. Unleash yourself onto this unlimited adventure , withe the stability and comfort of an idylic base at Sheen Bunkhouse.

… great to have a haven like Sheen to retire back to after a day up there…
With 2 bunk rooms and a wonderfully modernised interior, Sheen Bunkhouse is a cosy, comfortable base to explore the area.
Sheen in Staffordshire, is a quiet village perched on a gritstone ridge. The Staffordshire corner of the Peak District is quiet and little explored but there’s so much to see here. The Manifold Valley Track, Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail link to make some great flat(ish) cycling. They’re all ex-railway lines and their lengths are dotted with fascinating industrial heritage details.
Up on the tops, the moorlands of Flash and Longnor are as windswept and magnificent as any in Yorkshire or Derbyshire. It’d be great to have a haven like Sheen to retire back to after a day up there.
More sheltered are the valleys of the Dove and Manifold rivers which offer pleasant walks among some pretty impressive rock towers, caves and gorges. While we’re talking about impressive – explore ‘The Roaches’ jagged, ragged ridges with vertiginous peaks.
