Join us for a fabulous family walk with your children!
The Peak District is both 'mighty and manageable'. It offers summits, scrambles, stories, wrecks and treasure on a scale that works perfectly for a family day out.
Whether you want to find a second world war aircraft wreck, scramble up a Clough on Derbyshire's highest plateau, or seek treasure at 'Robin Hood's Stride', we can help you meet your mission!
Your guides are Rachel Bolton or Richard Tower. Rachel’s background is in primary school teaching and Richard taught younger children and families on holidays as a qualified sailing instructor.
We'll ensure your family walk is:
Walks will start at 0945 and generally be finished between by 1400-1500.
Depending on the group and route, walks can be one mile (300 feet of ascent) to five miles (1200 feet of ascent) or more.
Subject to agreement with Rachel and Richard you may be able to bring your family dog too!
On every walk there will be treasure - so let's find it together!
Had an amazing day. Our Guide was incredibly helpful in the run-up to our walk which made it very easy to organise. On the day, he did a fantastic job with my son - helping him read the map and letting him take the lead (fully supervised of course!). We had an amazing walk up to the site of B-29 plane crash. He knew the history of the crash but also had a wonderful knowledge of the Peaks . His love of his surroundings and of his job really shone through. Highly recommended!

This is a real treat - a lovely walk from the edge of England's fourth largest reservoir, Carsington Water, up through the sheep fields to visit Farmer George's Lambing Shed!
We'll meet at Carsington Water Visitor Centre Car Park with it's cafe, restaurant and toilets. Then we'll walk with you up through the fields to the small village of Hognaston and its surrounding hills with lovely views of the reservoir below - we'll bring a map and compass and teach you to find your way using a map if you like! Farmer George has a lambing shed above Hognaston and you can see the new born lambs at the height of season. This is an exclusive visit where we learn a little about shepherding and the farmer's work - we make a donation with every walk to Hognaston Village charities
We pass through the pretty village of Hognaston and back to the reservoir's edge via the dam wall - you can enjoy the many activities on offer. As well as the cafe and restaurant, there's bike and boat hire, over eight miles of lakeside walks and cycle tracks, and bird hides.

This walk's great for younger children and new navigators (of any age). First, we'll look at some map skills so that you can learn to find your way. Then you'll take us to the rocky outcrops of Robin Hood's Stride where legend says Robin Hood leapt between the rocks! No leaping off rocks for us, but there will be hidden treasure - see if you can use your new navigation skills to find it! We'll provide a map compass for an enjoyable day where learning is easy and fun!
