Peak District Climbing & Caving Hut

Located in the village of Stoney Middleton, Carlswark Cottage is ideally suited for kindred 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), alongside a washroom and 2 showers. 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 downstairs for extra warmth in the winter months.

The climbing in Stoney Middleton is a five minute walk from the hut - as is Carlswark Cavern and Streaks Pot for the cavers. For Mountain Bikers, we have a classic route with some of the best descents in the Peak District leading straight from our door.

Across the road, The Moon Inn comes recommended for its food.


All bookings are on an exclusive basis and for groups only.

Fees are £9 per person per night with a £126 non refundable deposit/minimum total fee due at time of booking.

Sorry, no animals or under 18's.
