In the heart of the Peak District between the spectacular Derwent Valley and Kinder Scout, Hagg Farm offers high quality residential accommodation, outdoor education and adventure activities. Hagg Farm is maintained by Nottinghamshire County Council and has been a centre of excellence for outdoor education in the Peak District since 1989. Our customers include schools, youth groups, organisations, sports clubs, families and groups of friends.
The buildings were once a working hill farm in the remote Woodlands Valley and today offer high standard accommodation for up to 60 guests. Accommodation is available in two adjoining buildings; the main centre sleeps forty four in dormitories and twin rooms and the smaller John Hunt Base accommodates sixteen. Catered or self-catered packages are available and the units can be booked together or separately; groups have sole use of the centre they book.
Our nationally qualified outdoor tutors are amongst the most experienced, enthusiastic and capable that you could meet and it is their approach combined with excellent facilities that make a trip to Hagg Farm so memorable.
Programmes can include a range of on-site and off-site activities. Instructor-led activities can include: rock climbing, canoeing, abseiling, caving, mine exploration, stream scrambling, mountain walking, indoor climbing, high-ropes activities and field studies. Other activities can be led by visiting staff including orienteering, geocaching, problem solving and local walks. Our programmes for schools enrich the curriculum by bringing the outdoors to life and help young people achieve their potential by increasing confidence, promoting healthy activity and fun.
Hagg Farm also offers national award courses for the outdoors such as Mountain Leader, Walking Group Leader, Single Pitch Award, Local Cave/Mine Leader and Cave Instructor Certificate training and assessment.
Whether you are looking for a school or youth residential course, a residential venue for your own get-together or a qualification to help you with your work you will find all of these at Hagg Farm Outdoor Education Centre.
