About Bunkhouse renovations

Learn the traditional skill of lime-mortar pointing.

For several years we have been restoring the listed Dalehead Bunkhouse and surrounding buildings where you will be staying. Come along to help our skilled building team continue this restoration using traditional stone masonry and lime mortar pointing skills. 

About the accommodation

A fully converted farmhouse situated at the western end of Edale. The bunkhouse lies at the foot of the 538m Horse Hill Tor with views of Kinder Scout. It is surrounded by working farms and a wooded garden with a stream.
