Peak District Climbing & Caving Hut:

Located in the village of Stoney Middleton, Carlswark Cottage can be booked by clubs and groups looking for hut-styled accommodation in the Peak District.

Upstairs there are bunks for 12 persons (plus mattresses for 2 more sleeping on the floor if required) along with shower and toilet facilities. Downstairs is a living-dining area, with 2 cookers, 2 fridges and everything else required for self-catering. There is electric heating throughout and a coal/wood burning stove for extra warmth in the winter months.

The climbing and caving in Stoney is a 10 minute walk from the door and there is a good pub across the road. 

All bookings are on an exclusive basis and for groups only. Sorry, no animals or under 18s. 


Please only park in the areas marked blue (see diagram). Try to keep as many cars as possible in the grass forecourt by the hut. Overflow parking is available against the wall in the area to the left of the entrance as you enter from the road. Please don't park anywhere else as it is required by the residents of the nearby cottages.

Bus or train:

The 257 Hulley’s of Baslow bus and the 65 Stagecoach bus both serve the Toll Bar bus stop approximately 200m from the hut. If catching the train to Sheffield (SHF), these both depart from the Sheffield Interchange just over the road from the station. 

Our nearest station is Grindleford (GRN) which is served by Manchester-Sheffield trains on the Hope Valley Line. It’s a pleasant ~5km walk from there along the Derwent Valley to the hut, or the 65 Stagecoach bus can be caught outside The Maynard, approximately 400m south of the station.
