The Peak District is one of the Uk’s most popular Walking Destinations

The Peak District and Derbyshire is one of the UK’s most popular walking destinations and now Spring is with us and the daffodils and snowdrops are in bloom we are planning future days out walking the hills and valleys that surround us at Stonecroft.  The air feels fresh and the light seems clearer,  we develop a sense of new beginnings, and an anticipation of things to come.  As I drove out of the valley towards Upper Booth and Mam Tor yesterday, there were even para-gliders flying above me enjoying the fine weather and sunshine.  Throughout the National Park there are a massive variety of walks in landscapes that are spectacular, with many traffic free trails and routes that you can follow.  There is something for everyone, from challenging treks up hills and crags to simple circular walks in stunningly beautiful countryside.  Walking in the Peak District is varied, exciting, relaxing and a wonderful way to spend a few hours or days.

Edale is the start of the Pennine Way, the long distance footpath starting a few hundred yards from our front door and finishing a few hundred miles away in Kirk Yetholm in Scotland.  Although we meet many guests who are setting off on this long and challenging journey, we are also ideally situated for shorter walks around the valley and beyond.   We have a variety of guide books in the lounge at Stonecroft and maps for sale to guide you on your way.

If you don’t feel confident to explore under your own steam, why not join other like minded people on walking in the Peak District?  Visit Peak District offer help, advice and information on guided walks being held throughout the year, and these provide a great opportunity to make new friends, see new places and get fit all under the guidance of an experienced guide.
