Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to the Peak District. Start your Intrepid Retreats experience with be a Welcome Meeting with your host at 2 pm at the accommodation. Begin your active adventure with a walk through the Hope Valley to Bamford village. Castleton is the picture of a quintessentially England country town, with its slate grey old stone houses, countless pubs off the winding main road, and rolling green surrounds backed by steep hills on three sides, including the famous Mam Tor. Bamford is the highest remaining village in the Derwent valley, with many of its neighbours submerged in the mid-20th century by the construction of two reservoirs. Reward yourself for completing your first walk with a drink in a local pub in Bamford. Take your tastebuds on an intrepid adventure with what couldn’t be a more appropriate brew on tap – beers from Intrepid Brewing Co. Afterwards there is the option for return to Castleton by foot, or perhaps stay at the pub for dinner and catch a taxi back this evening.
