We recommend The Shoulder of Mutton, Bradwell  www.theshoulderatbradwell.co.uk  01433 620427.

Suggestions and ideas

Why not try a days cooking course hosted by Seasoned Courses.  They have lots of fun courses for 2-3 hours and for groups of 5-25 people.  For full details please visit www.seasonedcourses.com.

Try www.peakwinedirect.co.uk of Hathersage they will come and organise a wine tasting evening at our cottages, or combine with www.cocoadance.com of Castleton for fizz and chocolate tasting.  

How about a life drawing class try www.gonetograss.wix.com/hen-drawing-parties for something completely different.

For mountain bike guiding check out www.peakdistrictmountainbiking.co.uk - Peak District Mountain Bike Guiding offer mountain bike guiding across the bridleways of the Peak District led by MIAS Level Two qualified instructors with over 15 years mountain biking experience across Europe. We can offer one day’s guiding, a full weekend, or even a whole week’s holiday of riding from the door of your accommodation. The Peak District is home to superb mountain biking terrain. If daring technical descents, flowing and swoopy singletrack, fast and furious rocky bridleways and challenging yet rewarding climbs get your adrenaline pumping then the Peak District’s for you. We know these trails like the back of our hands, so instead of wasting time wrestling with an OS Map let us tailor a route to suit you. We’ll take into account the expected weather conditions, your abilities and fitness plus your riding preferences and plan an absolute gem of a route.


For that extra treat why not hire some hot tubs for your stay.  We can arrange the hire of 6 person tubs to be placed on the patio outside the cottage ready for your arrival and exclusive use throughout your stay. Please phone us for further details and prices.  PLEASE DO NOT ARRANGE HIRE OF YOUR OWN HOT TUBS.

"We have all had a wonderful weekend.  Lots of space for the 17 of us to be able to chill and relax.  Very sorry for all those that saw me dressed as a foot with a Learner plate on - what lengths your bridesmaid goes to, to make you look ridiculous!!  Although it was a windy weekend we did the 3 mile walk - which was a great walk for all of us.  Lots of people with different fitness levels.  Thank you for a well equipped, homely weekend where we could all relax and have plenty of fun withouth upsetting any neighbours!".  - March 2014
