Manifold Dales

"The routes are perfect. You took all the hard work out of it. I know it would have taken us weeks to organise by ourselves. Thank you." Sam Davies 

Manifold DalesThe Manifold Dales are in the southern Peak District, on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border. Scenically this is one of the finest networks. A limestone plateau 1,000 feet high, with stunning gorge like dales. Up on the hills, there's a patchwork of dry-stone walls with grassy tracks between them. This area is easily accessible from most parts of the country.

We offer between 2 and 4 days place-to-place riding or one-centre holidays with a selection of fabulous day rides. The terrain is interesting and varied and includes disused railways, some steep hills and beautiful valleys. For mountain bikers the routes are easy in parts with some challenging hills.

There is a great deal to see in the Manifold Dales including Buxton which lies just out side the Peak District National Park boundaries. It was founded by the Romans, who built baths to use the warm spa water. In the 18-19th centuries Buxton was famous as a spa.

Exercursions include:

  • Buxton
  • Ashbourne
  • River Wye
  • Chatsworth House
  • Cheedale
