Winding its way between the gritstone edges of the Dark Peak and
the limestone crags of the White Peak, the Hope Valley links the
picturesque settlements of Castleton and Hathersage and is the
ideal location for a holiday full of outdoor fun.
Think walking, rock climbing, mountain biking, pony trekking and
more daring adventures like pot-holing and hang-gliding. Or think
of leisurely pastimes like bird-watching, painting or fishing. When
you book a Hope Valley cottage you can look forward to all this and
