Embrace the great outdoors in the Peak District

Bamford, Derbyshire

Set your pulse racing with an adventure amid rugged moorland, rolling dales, majestic rock faces and mysterious caves.

The Peak District’s sweeping moors and rock formations offer world-class terrain for all manner of outdoor activities. 

Walkers can ramble along the Derwent Valley Heritage Way’s 55 miles of leafy trails that follow the River Derwent through the Peak District National Park, and take bracing hikes in the more undulating landscape from Edale to the Kinder Scout plateau where the Kinder Downfall waterfall tumbles down ancient rock. 

Family-friendly cycle routes lace around the Derwent Reservoir, while an exhilarating network of mountain biking trails lure two-wheel enthusiasts from far and wide. 

For a real adrenalin kick sign up to a specially-tailored climbing course with Dolomite Training, or delve into the fascinating depths of Castleton’s caverns and caves. 

Walkers, cyclists, abseilers and cavers alike will find a warm welcome at the award-winning, four-star Yorkshire Bridge Inn at Bamford.
