About Ilam Bunkhouse

A large bunkhouse on the Ilam Park estate with the formidable hills and rocky outcrops of the Peak District nearby.

Ilam Bunkhouse is a large, 16-person property surrounded by countryside. With epic limestone hills, winding rivers and ancient woodland, this remote holiday accommodation is ideally placed for active groups looking explore the Peak District. 

There’s no better way to discover this stunning area than on foot. With so many walking routes in the area there are lots to choose from but you must try the stepping stones. This popular route through the Dovedale Valley is just a 20-minute stroll from Ilam.

Further afield, discover some of Derbyshire’s most famous towns and villages. The spa town of Buxton is one England’s most popular and, interestingly, at 300 metres above sea level, the highest market town in the country. Enjoy a fabulous day out exploring the town’s historic buildings and numerous cafés, pubs and restaurants.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
