Escape to the country of deep dales and walking trails
Take a break to Britain’s first national park and explore its forested valleys and small stone villages threaded by walking trails. This five-day adventure offers a comfortable yet active way to get away from it all. Basing yourself in the quintessential country town of Castleton, you’ll walk your way to the scenic villages of Bamford and Bakewell, take on treks to Stanage Edge and Mam Tor, drop into friendly local pubs and discover more about the local communities, all while surrounded by iconic backdrop of rolling green hills backed by steep peaks. An Intrepid countryside escape awaits.
Walk the winding trails between picturesque villages and then hole up at a local pub to try a fittingly named brew from Intrepid Brewing Co.
Treat yourself one of the town’s famous tarts or puddings in Bakewell and explore the arched bridges, narrow shopping streets and stone cottages.
Enjoy the ease of leaving your walking boots at the same comfortable, conveniently located accommodation each night.
Trek to the beautiful escarpment of Stanage Edge, where you’ll find some truly spectacular views, and if you’re lucky, the hidden Robin Hood’s Cave.
Take on a walk to the summit of Mam Tor, one of the most famous natural features in the Peak District. The views from the top will be one of the lasting memories of your adventure.
