For 18+ years PEAK ACTIVITIES LTD has been based at Rock Lea
in the centre of the unspoiled Peak District village of Hathersage
which is a great place to base our huge range of training and
team building events and our popular range of outdoor activities
for groups and for individuals... including our highly acclaimed
weekend events for individuals.
As featured on BBC & ITV television.
The village of Hathersage is small but lively. It enjoys many attractions rare for
a village so small in size, including a 33m x 10m heated open air swimming pool
( open April to Sept. ) right next door to Rock Lea, our outdoor centre. Usually the
pool is heated to c. 82 to 84 degrees F. ..almost as warm as bath water !
The surrounding Hope Valley is a box of delights for the outdoor enthusiast - and from
our base at Rock Lea we are just minutes from local crags, excellent cycle routes, the
deepest cave in England, riverside walks and so much more !

ride, bus journey or train ride away. Sheffield offers late night shopping at Meadowhall,
a floodlit dry skiing slope, hundreds of bars, loads of cinemas, discos & manynight clubs.
There is also ice-skating, ten pin bowling & several indoor rock climbing venues for those

excellent inns in the village including the Millstone Inn, The Plough & The Scotsman's
Pack and The George ! ).

Yes !
Arguably some of the UK's best climbing and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts shops
are located here....we now have no less than three outdoor gear shops right in the
village centre ( Nevis Sports, CCC and Outside ) and there's another one ( Hitch n Hike)
just on the outskirts....so the village is a mecca for gear freaks with a yearning for buying
all the latest accessories and life's other non-essentials !
All the gear shops are open on Saturdays and Sundays. We offer all our clients discount
vouchers valid for some of the local shops, so you can save a fortune by spending all
your money there on that fleece, or the GPS or the sleeping bag you always promised
yourself !
