The location


The very pretty village of Ilam lies in the Manifold Valley in the Staffordshire Peak District. It is a peaceful, idyllic spot, surrounded by the most stunning White Peak countryside.

There are numerous walking routes in the area, taking you through epic limestone gorges, along clear winding rivers and through ancient woodland. The beautiful valley of Dovedale is pretty much on your doorstep; it’s one of the most visited natural sites in the UK, and deservedly so.

The ancient town of Ashbourne is only a few miles away and makes a great place to explore for a day out. The elegant spa town of Buxton is also within easy driving of Ilam Bunkhouse.
