The Roaches Bunkhouse is at the foot of The Roaches, a famous gritstone escarpment along the south west edge of the Peak District. Worn into fantastic shapes by the elements the rocks stretch for 3 miles with magnificent views over Tittesworth reservoir. The edges provide some of the best gritstone climbing in the country, with famous routes such as Valkyrie and The Swan. The Roaches Bunkhouse is an ideal base for climbers, walkers and cyclists, with glorious walks, climbing and cycling from the doorstep in all directions. The Roaches Bunkhouse is in the village of Upper Hulme in the Peak District National Park, 150 meters from Ye Old Rock Inn pub (currently closed for refurbishment) which provides excellent food and draught ales. The Roaches Tea Room is 1/2 a mile away and The Three Horse Shoes, The lazy Trout, The reform Inn and the Winking Man pubs are all within 2 miles. Leek, 3 miles away, is the closest town for amenities.
