If you have responsibility for organising a stag do or hen do in the Peak District then you face the same dilemma as others before you. Where can you stay? what activities can you do? what is the best location? where can we go on a night time and How much will it all cost?
There is numerous group accommodation available within the Peak District National Park. Companies like, Peak Venues offer quality accommodation but Airbnb has proved popular as well. Sometimes a bunkhouse is all people need and plenty can be found. Others may want to camp and again there are plenty of sites available. Places like Castleton or Bakewell have more to offer at night time for food and drink options. And remember, you have a playground for adventurous activities on the doorstep with a wide range to choose from.
Dolomite Training have been running Stag and Hen parties in the Peak District for 10 years now. As a result, we have worked with thousands of people and have lots of ideas to make your day even better. We also understand that not everyone in the group will want to Abseil off a viaduct or go Rock Climbing. With this in mind, we tweak each course to be as inclusive as we can. Consequently you get a better day and you can have a laugh in the pub about your adventures.

If you haven’t tried caving, then caving in Yorkshire is a great place to start. It offers an underground adventure beneath the rolling hills and Dales that define Yorkshire countryside? Yorkshire has an abundance of great caves for all levels of ability. Some are more weather dependent than others but still so many to choose from. The Peak District has also got lots of caves to explore so take your pick.
Admire the limestone pavements with their clints and grikes proudly on display alongside the 3 Peaks that the Dales are renowned for. Beneath all of this lay hundreds of cave systems and potholes, many well known such as Gaping Ghyll and Alum Pot. You also have show caves such as White scar and Ingleborough to visit without having to don all the usual caving kit.
For the more adventurous you can ask for a private course with our own Caving Instructors who frequent the Dales at every opportunity. You may start with a journey through the Long Churns system and progress from there. If you have been on an SRT course then you have more options to go deeper underground. If you wanted to learn SRT then you can book an SRT Course Alternatively you may have some of these skills but want to be guided through a system with us rigging all the sections or learn to rig for yourself? all of these options are available with a reputable company like Dolomite Training
What you Will Learn
Other gentler options include horizontal trips to explore beneath the Layers of the Limestone landscape. You can admire how nature has created many fascinating wonders below your feet. Your guides can talk about how the caves have been formed. Initially, from their early beginnings over 320 Million years ago to what they are now. This will include naming the fossils contained within. You may see many speleothems such as Stalagmites and Stalactites and lesser known features such as cave popcorn or flowstone. If you are in an active streamway then you see how the water has formed scallops in the rock.
Sometimes a day underground is far more rewarding in many different ways to the world above. Everyone surfaces with a new sense of adventure and wonder at what they have seen and done. Caving is a great activity no matter where you are but caving in Yorkshire is champion.
