Minibus Transportation...

Peak Activities Ltd.'s outdoor pursuits & training base in the accessible Peak District, 
Rock Lea, has its own fleet of comfortable air conditioned MINIBUSES & other transports. 
These support our centre's sporting & corporate training customers' activities.  For example
they're used to transport clients to sites we use such as local crags and caves etc.  We can 
also arrange to collect groups of customers in minibuses from local ferry ports and airports
and locally they can be used to transfer clients to their conference centres and local hotels 
& inns such as the Millstone Inn and the Kenwood Hall Hotel.

All the centre's minibuses and cars used for transporting 
Peak Activities Ltd's clients are fully insured for commercial 
use by AVIVA Norwich Union who are also corporate clients 
of our organisation. The minibus-towed bike trailer pictured 
above is a popular means of getting groups of cyclists well 
away from traffic. We can quickly transport customers & bikes 
to quiet, peaceful country places which make ideal starting &
finishing points.

Peak Activities centre's experienced minibus drivers are all aged over 25 yrs.
Iain & Caroline et alia hold Derbyshire LEA minibus driver permits.
We operate a fleet of vehicles including 9 and 15 seater Transits, 7 seat air-conditioned VW Caravelles and a rugged Land Rover Defender for winter and off-road applications such as filming. We have a minibus purpose converted with a ramp and seat belts and tracking anchorages for wheelchair users. Our minibuses can be used to transport groups of customers between our popular outdoor activity centre and hotels and hostels and conferences centres in places nearby such as Bakewell, Buxton, Sheffield, Rotherham and Matlock & Derby. Please call us for a quotation.
This lwb VW T4 people carrier was kindly sponsored by Gilders when
a training documentary with them filmed by Yorkshire Television.
Even in the snow we have safe transport capabilities...
In addition to using our own minibuses
Peak Activities regularly provide deluxe
coaches (some seating up to 84 people ) 
for larger groups, such as the groups 
coming here for company Treasure Hunts
and inter-team Challenges.



One or more coaches can be used when we are running
events for big corporate events such as inter-team
challenges, orienteering competitions, treasure hunts, etc.
Some have galleys and toilets on board.




All year round, Peak Activities runs professional, intensive
short events for individuals
on open courses and for private
parties of people. We use our minibuses to make the
of everyone's time here and to help speed up getting our
outdoor centre's
visiting groups up to the local crags, caves
and other exciting locations.
You can therefore arrive here using the train ( Hathersage's
railway station is only
350 metres away from our centre at
Rock Lea ) which is not only relaxing but also
an environmentally
friendly way of getting here !
Peak Activities staff can arrange for our air conditioned
to collect our training and sports activities clients
from their
local hotels and conference centres, local railway
& local airports, etc. We also operate several panel
vans, a Land Rover Defender and trailers for moving around
our kit - such as our management training resources, for moving
film crews' gear in wintry weather ...and for transporting
sledges too !
Volkswagen's versatile T4's & T5's transport our
customers around during our activities as required.
One of our VW's has a wheelchair ramp
& wheelchair seatbelts & anchor points.
Peak Activities Ltd's newest T4 VW Caravelle has a facility
for us to remove seats and allow a wheelchair user to travel
safely in this vehicle. It was kindly sponsored by TXU in Geneva
and arrived fitted with telescopic wheelchair access ramps by
Brian Cauldwell at Gilders VW Commercial Dealership and
Specialists in nearby Sheffield. You can reach
Gilders in Sheffield
on [+44] 0114-2672288.
Gilders are old friends of ours who act as suppliers and who
also valued customers of ours. We've made television film
documentaries with them in the past on their training courses
which we've designed and run for them...but that's another
story on another part of our website !


Due to the rather complex and varied nature of many 
local authority guidelines regarding the transportation &
insurance of the youngsters from their schools, we have
decided for the time being to ask all groups involving LEA
youngsters to provide their own transport to and from the
centre - and to use this transport if necessary to get to and
from sites such as crags being used for rock climbing, caves, etc.

Because this works out cheaper for us, our non-residential fees 
for youngsters have taken into account the customers' provision 
of transport. Our staff will travel in one of our own 4 x 4 minibuses 
or one of our 4X4's with all the necessary group & personal training 
equipment....so clients minibuses do not need seating for Rock Lea's 
or space for our equipment.  We can hire in minibuses or coaches
for groups who, say, arrive by train or public service bus and who may
not have their own suitable transport.
VIP COACH HIRE for Peak Activities' corporate guests... If our centre's own minibus fleet is not large enough and your party is big & needs help transporting them to or around the Peak District...or indeed if you require assistance in arranging for a party to be transported here all together by coach from your base or your hotel, Peak Activities Ltd's heartily endorses and recommends the services of our long standing, tried and proven coach suppliers. "Andrew's Coaches" are based in nearby Tideswell. They have never let us down - their coach drivers are first class, their coaches are safe, modern and very clean. Moreover they're always on time & efficient. We enjoy working with this award winning firm.

Pictured above are Andrews' 74 seater de luxe double decker and one
of their smaller Baby Setra coaches which holds 28 people and offers 
a toilet, galley and even DVD player and plasma screens for watching
videos, briefings & presentations in even the most out of the way locations !  

Whether you want an open top double decker, a small coach or a
monster bus to swallow up a huge group of people, Andrews are reliable
and can take care of your requirements. They have a large modern fleet 
comprising vehicles of all sizes - so if youbook early they can cope with 
groups large and small. 

Top tip : don't assume coach hire is always expensive !

  It's often MUCH heaper to arrive by coach than travelling in lots of 
cars or by rail.  It is also kinder on our environment & less stressful 
to let the driver do all the work and arrive here relaxed & all together !
.... Local map & travel information. Travel information. SAVE MONEY ON YOUR TRAVEL UP TO THE PEAK DISTRICT ! Sometimes it is much cheaper for a group to be collected from, say London or Birmingham by a coach than it is for you to hire a more expensive coach company based in your own home town. We hope you'll ask Andrews for a free coach transport quote if you need any help with transporting people long distances or short hauls to and from the Peak District.
