Yes we do! We have both ladies and mens facilities as well as WIFI and all the mod cons!
To book its super simple, we have 'Open Courses' which run regularly throughout the year on set dates. Just select which date works for you and book online. If these dates don't suit, then you can add a new 'Open Course' by selecting the option below, this will become a new 'Open Course' and others will be allowed to join in. If you'd rather have us all to yourself, select 'Book Privately' and we will run the course completely private and bespoke to you.
No Problem, we'll happily come pick you up from the closest bus or train station the evening before. The closest train station to us is 15min up the road in Buxton and has a link to most major cities. The main Bus Station is in Leek which is 15 mins away. If you're struggling to get to either of those links, drop us a call and we're sure we can sort something out to help you.
Our centre is in located in the Upper Hulme, Leek, Staffordshire, around 1⁄2 a mile down the road from The Roaches. Parking can be found 30m from us at the end of the road in our carpark GPS 53.145139, -1.983947. You are welcome to park here all day. If you have booked a course on a weekday we ask if possible, to park next to the chapel just before you turn onto Roaches Road GPS 53.145139, -1.983947
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.

We keep a very close eye on the weather at all times. If its just looking a little damp, overcast or showery the course will go ahead as normal and most of the time its never as bad as met office makes out! We are experts at finding dry and suitable areas to train you and our local knowledge is second to none. If however the weather is looking terrible for the duration of the course then you will be given the choice of re-booking onto another session later in the year and we will prioritise your booking over any new ones we receive.
For our 'Open Courses' we have a minimum age of 14. However if you are booking privately then there is no age restrictions.
