Peak District Breaks

Thorpe Cloud a great place to go walking for fitness

We have 4 Peak District breaks this year, so Mike needs a good selection of walks for all levels.

A Walk over Kinder Scout

It’s always popular, and guests who don’t know the area are treated to a wonderful 360 degree panorama.

Feel the wind in your hair as you take the eight mile hike from Edale village and head across the famous Kinder Scout.

With some complicated climbs and difficult descents along the way.

A wholesome packed lunch and some sturdy walking boots, it’ll take you around five hours to complete.

A Walk through Dovedale

If you’re looking for a pleasant stroll, Dovedale is ideal.

With a slight gradient in places, this 2.5 mile walk takes you from Ilam Wood to the impressive Dovedale gorge, and should take you around 1 hour 50 minutes to complete.

Great for getting some fresh air. Mike tends to do 2 walks in a day when they are this short and easy.

A Walk among the Oaks of Ladybower Wood

This is such a great walk; one of the last remaining upland oak woodlands in the County.

A gem of a reserve covering the steep valley side overlooking the famouns Ladybower reservoir, it is an incredibly important refuge for a number of resident and migrant woodland birds.

In the spring and summer the wood is full of bird song from pied flycatchers, redstarts, wood warblers and tree pipits. As well as blue tits, treecreepers and nut hatches.

Higher up the valley side the woodland gives way to bracken and heather moorland where you may spot grouse, meadow pipits, curlew and occasionally hares.

The reserve is also great for botanists looking to seek out fungi, mosses, liverwort, and lichens.

Over 75 lichen species have been recorded, making it one of the best sites in the Peak District to find them. Guests of our Peak District breaks love this walk as there is so much wildlife to be seen. It’s about 4 miles.

Peak District Breaks in the National Park

This National Park has so many walks to offer, that’s why our short walking breaks at Dale End Barn are so popular.

We offer an all-inclusive holiday with 3 walks, great food and luxury accommodation on all our Peak District Breaks.
