About Dalehead Bunkhouse

Gather your group and disconnect from modern life when you stay in this rural bolthole deep in the Edale Valley.

You really will be staying ‘off the beaten track’ in this 20-sleeper bunkhouse; its isolated location, deep in the Edale Valley, means there are no public roads leading to it. A single, narrow track will guide you to this rural hideaway, where you’ll be surrounded only by working farmland, grazing sheep and a tumbling stream at the bottom of the garden.  

Inside offers plenty of space to relax among its rustic exposed beams and low doorways. You’ll have three bedrooms to divide into and a communal living and dining area with sofas and a cosy log burner to huddle around. There’s even a payphone for when your phone signal drops out. 

Its location, in the heart of the Peak District, means you’ll be in perfect walking and cycling territory. The fluffy moorland and jagged gritstone of Dark Peak can be walked to in an hour or driven to in 15 minutes. From here you can also hike to stargazing haven Mam Tor, which has some of the darkest skies in the UK.

Notes for guests

Heating: The radiators run off the wood burner in the living room so you will need to light the fire to get the radiators working. Wood will be included for the fire during your stay.

To help reduce carbon emissions and increase energy savings, the National Trust has installed a low energy, state-of-the-art FAR Infra-Red heating system in the bunkhouse. Whilst this technology is capable of heating the building completely, it has been introduced in the bunkhouse to work alongside the existing wood burner heating system. 

Bedding/linen: Linen and pillows are not provided. Mattress protectors are on all the beds.

Dogs: There is a £15 charge for dogs staying at Dalehead bunkhouse, payable at time of booking.

Parking: There is parking for approximately 8 cars nearby, 20 metres from the bunkhouse.

Garden: The garden is at the back of the property. The garden is not enclosed is open to a stream and countryside. The garden is fairly small.

Hazards: The route to house is unlit, slightly uphill and uneven. Due to the limited access route up a rural track, the access is not suitable for any vehicle larger than a 15 seat minibus. The bunkhouse is close to a working farm, and there are cattle/sheep grazing nearby. There are some low doorways and low beams throughout the bunkhouse.

Is this bunkhouse for you? Our bunkhouses are perfect for guests who want to enjoy the outdoors and meet up with friends and family.

We may accept well behaved hen and stag groups at this bunkhouse but would like to discuss your groups needs first. If this applies to your group please call our contact centre on 0344 335 1296 so that they can understand your groups needs.

There are neighbours nearby, so we respectfully ask that you keep noise to a minimum after 11pm.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
