Was supposed to be going to Edinburgh but arrived day late for our pre booked train! So as a last minute alternative decided to go walking in the peaks. Edale is an excellent place to stay as there are lots of fantastic walks in the summer it attracts hoards of people but first weeks of December youth hostel and surrounding area is very quiet which is great for a peaceful couple of days. Hostel is looking a bit dated now but we were given a room which had a double bed bunkbed and internal bathroom so could not complain it was a very clean and warm. Self catering kitchen facilities were a bit poor compared to other hostels we have stayed in but for the price what can you expect.
