Our indoor accommodation buildings and facilities are used by school and youth groups for educational residentials, groups of family / friends for a Peak District weekend break or holiday, faith groups, clubs and formal groups for organised meets, and organisations for large events.

Our four indoor accommodation buildings, the Lodge (sleeps 38), the Farm House (sleeps 38, dining room seats 36), Woodlands (sleeps up to 12) and 2 The Woodlands Cottage (sleeps 4/5) are self contained – each having its own fully equipped kitchen and dining/meeting room.  They all have outdoor space with seating and a BBQ (apart from 2 The Woodlands Cottage) for the nice sunny days.  A LCD TV and Blu-ray/DVD player are provided in the lounges (apart from 2 The Woodlands Cottage) and free Wi-Fi is available.

Having exclusive use of a building, rather than shared use of a larger building, is popular with our visiting groups enabling them to set up their own ‘home from home’.

The Lodge, Farm House, Woodlands and 2 The Woodlands Cottage can be booked separately or together.  When the campsite is not in use, large visiting groups staying in both buildings may choose to book the Base Camp kitchen/dining room to eat all together.  Several different catering options are available.

Should I book the Lodge or the Farm House accommodation for my group?

The Lodge accommodates up to 38 people including 6 staff/group leaders whereas the Farm House also accommodates 38 including 5 staff/group leaders, but can only seat 36 in the dining room.  Both buildings have space for a couple of tents outside.

The Lodge is all on one level, has a disabled toilet/shower and two bedrooms with wider door frames for wheelchair access.  Therefore is a better choice should any of your group have mobility difficulties.  The Lodge is a more modern building than the Farm House with one main corridor which is easier for group supervision.

The Farm House, a Grade 2 listed 19th century building is characterful with some quirky shaped rooms in the attached roundhouse, various corridors and steps.  Some original features remain such as fireplaces in the bedrooms.

The Lodge has a dining room and separate lounge/meeting room whilst the Farm House has one open-plan area containing a small ‘lounge’ area and the dining tables and chairs.

If you’re still undecided please contact us to arrange to come and have a look around!


Woodlands is our brand new accommodation building designed from the ground up to cater for groups which include those with additional needs.  It sleeps up to 10 people and can be booked along with the Lodge, Farm House, 2 The Woodlands Cottage or on its own.  It is a very modern and energy efficient building that has several accessible features such as hoists and an accessible shower room, please see the Woodlands page for more information.

2 The Woodlands Cottage

Our cottage that is located in our grade 2 listed archway building at the top of our driveway has recently been refurbished and can be booked on it’s own or with other accommodation buildings.  It can be used as staff overflow for a school residential or for a family getaway during the weekend.  Please see the 2 The Woodlands Cottage page for more information.
