Accommodation for our group clients

 

............

 
Meaningful and worthwhile outdoor & indoor based development
training using the outdoors doesn't have to be all about draughty
old bunks and sleeping bags...unless that's what you'd prefer !
 
This page describes some of the luxurious accommodation we
offer the groups booking our outdoor activities & training events.
Nowadays many of the most cost-effective training investments
we run for our clients are based in very comfortable & well appointed
three and four star hotels or exclusive conference centres in and
around the lovely and accessible Peak District National Park.
 
 
 
 
.

 

 
Some of Peak Activities Ltd's clients now bring delegates
in for international events with us from as far away as
Finland, Switzerland and Sweden, so we're keen to make
sure that, having travelled so far to reach here, their
discerning guests enjoy the very best that their available
budgets can achieve.
 
Scroll down the page for guide prices.
 

The four star hotels we use are especially popular with groups who appreciate fine food and wines.

 
 
TYPICAL PRICES VARY ...
 
Prices up in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire are much less than
we are used to paying in cities such as London, Berlin or Geneva.
This part of our iain.co.uk website has impressions of the quality
and excellent value of the four star hotels and some of the
conference centres from which we run training courses in the
accessible Hope Valley and in nearby Sheffield for many of our
Blue Chip training customers. We think you'll be amazed at the
attractive prices and complete reliability of the accommodation
suppliers on our approved and accredited accommodation supplier
database.

of secluded landscaped grounds and ornamental lake, this venue gets a lot
of repeat bookings from our customers.
 
 
As travel by low costs airlines such as EasyJet and Go
becomes so much more cost-effective, and as local hotels
are such good value, we are increasingly finding that a lot of
firms based throughout Europe are finding it very cost effective
to fly in to nearby Liverpool or Manchester Airportsand stay here
in the spectacular Peak District with us. More Travel Information
 
This foot of the page also has some "top tips" from Peter Daughtrey,
our Training Director. We have several tried and proven excellent
accommodation options which Peak Activities' Trainers can offer
corporate clients in addition to bases in and around our centre in
the heart of the charming village of Hathersage.

Detailed information including menus and specific quotes for specific
venues is made available when clients come here to have a look at our
facilities and look over the accommodation that's available on the
dates they wish to book. Clients should be aware that hotels are
seasonal so a quote for one size of party one month may not be the
same as a quote for a different start day and different sized party in
another month. By and large, however, our four star accommodation
is normally not less than £89 per person for B&B single occupancy of
double and twin rooms - and not often more than £120 per person.
There are always special deals, of course, from time to time which
will break these minimum figures.
 
As you'd expect, if you want a ballroom and a live band plus a 5 course
banquet for 120 folks it's going to cost you a tad more more than a
syndicate room for 12 people ! However, once all the varying parameters
are specified in writing we can usually get some very attractive deals from
our approved suppliers on our approved accommodation suppliers database.
     
     
    Other pages on our website also offer more images and information
    on the luxurious four star hotels, conference centres and leisure clubs
    which are frequently used by groups using Peak Activities Ltd's
    Training & Corporate Hospitality Divisions. Click here for example
    to see information and lots of images showing a brand new hotel we
    are endorsing which offers extremely good deals for customers booking
    through our blue-chip clients reservation service.
     
Some clients booking corporate events and/or training programmes
with us require four star luxury and/or hotels for large numbers of 
people. The small hotels in & around Hathersage can only cater for
modest sized parties so we have a range of several preferred four 
star hotels within a very short scenic drive of our centre.  These can 
be easily reached in our centre's minibuses or by car.

These are all ideal for training courses, , corporate hospitality, 
social gatherings,  entertaining VIP's, and corporate sales meetings.

  
   
 
For example, the Hotel on the western edge of Sheffield
(illustrated below) is one of our preferred venues for discerning
groups who want to combine four star hotel luxury with a
challenging outdoor training programme. The two are not
necessarily mutually exclusive...and the prices can be very
competitive if you book through us.
     
     
    This is a very popular venue with our corporate customers. Surprisingly this
    oasis of calm is just 2 miles from Sheffield's city centre...and only 10 to
    15 minutes scenic drive from our base, Rock Lea. It is easily reached over
    the spectacular moorlands illustrated below (local map)....

 

 
 
 
We can transfer you from the hotel to your activity sites with our own fleet of
air conditioned 4x4 minibuses... or by coach if you prefer.
 
 
 
Below : The indoor swimming pool at this comfortable hotel is just one of this
very fine base's many attractions for our training and corporate events clients.
 
At the end of the day there's few things better than a relaxing swim back at the
hotel or in Hathersage village on the open air heated pool just outside
our base - Rock Lea.

A message from Iain Jennings FCIPD, Managing Director

" Whether a group booking activities with us wants 
four or five star luxury or a more modest two star hotel 
or a hostel, Programme Organisers wanting to book 
activities are always welcome to come over here to 
Hathersage to meet with us and let us show you around. 
You'll only be shown the best available accommodation 
options for what you have in mind and how much you have 
to invest.

We suggest that if you're fairly committed to exploring 
ways and means of buying from us and if you also know 
the dates you require and the numbers and approximate 
costs involved, then investing a little time in looking around 
a few of our chosen venues during a planning workshop 
session will be time very well spent for all concerned. 

As they say, Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
and time spent on having a look-see is seldom wasted

Please bear in mind, however, that we earn our living
from planning & running events involving our tutors and 
instructors and chartered training specialists such as 
Peter and me. We are not some sort of free tourist information 
point, so we regret we are not in a position to simply advise 
people wanting accommodation per se.  For example we can't 
show people around our approved venues in person if they are 
not committed to also buying our products and services.  For this 
reason trips around various venues and firm quotes are normally 
combined with planning workshop sessions which are normally 
convened at Rock Lea and which are, moreover, charged for to 
screen out people who may otherwise be wasting our consultants' 
time.  This keeps our running costs down for the bone fide clients 
who do want to take advantage of the extensive local knowledge 
and expertise we've built up over the 25 years we've been working 
in this field in this geographical area."
