Dalehead Bunkhouse in the Peak District

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Dalehead Bunkhouse is a renovated gritstone farmhouse on a working hill-farm at the remote head of Edale and was refurbished in 2010. The superb location of this popular accommodation is amongst the spectacular scenery of some of the highest hills in the Peak District including Kinder Scout and Mam Tor. There are no public roads and only one building nearby so it is a lovely secluded place to stay.

Cooking & eating
Dalehead is very spacious with a large dining room that can be used for meetings, school groups or as a social area. Heating is via electric storage heaters run from a wood burner in the sitting room. We supply logs to ensure that this is a very warm and welcoming place to relax. The well equipped kitchen has a superb six-ring gas hob and a large gas oven. There are plenty of cooking utensils and everything is clean and well looked after. The large number of work surfaces in the kitchen ensures that catering for large numbers is very easy.

Sleeping & washing
Upstairs there are three dormitories with comfortable wooden beds. In total there are beds for 20 people; these include seven bunk beds (14 people) and six standard beds which can be used as singles or put together to make double beds, depending on the requirements. There are also brand new toilet and shower room facilities. One shower room is downstairs and one is upstairs with washbasins, toilets and two electric heated showers in each.

Outside
There is an outdoor picnic area with benches and a brick built BBQ. A stream runs past the back and sheep graze in the adjacent fields. The views are stunning all around and show the Dark Peak at its very best.

The dazzling and diverse scenery of the Peak District and Derbyshire makes it a paradise for walking, family cycling, mountain biking and adventure sports such as caving, rock climbing, hang gliding and paragliding, but there's also plenty to do for those with a more relaxed approach to nature and the great outdoors.
