Hathersage Christmas Break, Peak District
The perfect way to spend your Christmas holiday – fresh air, great walking, gorgeous scenery right on the doorstep, lovely company, relaxed environment and fabulous food too!
Would you like to escape the usual Christmas routine and try something different this year? We are really looking forward to spending this Christmas in the beautiful Peak District National Park. Hathersage is an ideal location with many varied walks straight from the front door. We will certainly head up on to Stanage Edge, famed for its gritstone tors and Keira Knightly (Pride and Prejudice photo shoot). It is a dramatic edge running for miles above Hathersage and nearby Bamford. We will also walk to Higger Tor and Carl Wark, the latter an Iron Age hillfort with a fascinating history. On other days we may take in Offerton Moor with its distant views over the Hope Valley and beyond and maybe get as far as Eyam, the famous plague village.
The holiday will be based at Hathersage Youth Hostel and we will have exclusive use. There is a cosy lounge, large dining room and plenty of space to relax. It is right in the heart of Hathersage with its outdoor shops, cafes and pubs.
The holiday is full board with vegetarian meals being prepared for us by Liz who is a fantastic cook and makes delicious cakes too!! Breakfast and lunch will be on a help your self basis with a good range of options provided.
By trainThe nearest train station is Hathersage and there is a regular (mainly once an hour) train service from Sheffield and Manchester on the Hope Valley Line. The accommodation is a 5 minute walk from the station.
