Winter discounts at a magical woodland hostel

Brighten up those drab Winter weekends in January & February, gather your friends/family and book Shining Cliff Hostel. On the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire and surrounded by 600 acres of ancient woodland, lakes and crags it’s a real escape. Something everyone will remember. It’s accessible only on foot down a woodland track, (it’s a 10 minute walk, wheelbarrows are supplied for your luggage!) And the great news is that weekends in Jan and Feb will cost just £300 per night for a max of 20 people. That’s just £15 per person per night. Oh and dogs are welcome too (please mention your dogs when booking).
