Places to stay
We are based in Upper Hulme in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands area of the west side of the Peak District. The medieval market town of Leek is no further than a 5min drive down the road and has plenty of super markets, pubs and shops to explore. 20 mins in the other direction and you arrive in the historical town of Buxton again full of shops, museums, cinema and a theatre.
If you're struggling to find somewhere to lay your head after a busy day out on the rock, we can recommend these places to get you started. All are within walking distance of our centre and are set in stunning locations.
