A bustling Derbyshire village popular with everyone from fans of outdoor activity breaks to literature and history buffs. Walk the Charlotte Brontë Literature trail, taking in North Lees Manor featured in Jane Eyre and visit the oversized grave of Robin Hood’s sidekick, Little John. YHA Hathersage is only 700 metres from the station on the Manchester to Sheffield train line, making it ideal Peak District accommodation for discovering everything the area has to offer. It is a great destination for walking, hiking and climbing holidays. There are games available from the reception and some books and magazines to read in the lounge.

Hathersage is continually buzzing with climbing, walking and cycling enthusiasts who cannot get enough of the striking scenery. Climbers can be seen tackling the famed Stanage Edge, which is renowned for pushing climbers of all levels to their limits. Walkers and cyclists can be seen dotted around the landscape surrounding Hathersage. For those wishing to explore outside of Hathersage, they will find that the village is conveniently located. Visitors can take a ride to the Derwent Reservoir, walk the renowned tors, or visit the numerous caves. The impressive Chatsworth House and Gardens is only nine miles away.
