The Boarshurst Centre is a traditional stone, single storied building located in the village of Greenfield, in the valley of the river Chew and on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

It is available for hire (both weekdays and weekends) to all groups of people who wish to use it as a base from which to enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds.

The building provides warm, clean and well maintained facilities which are at least as good as a standard youth hostel and has the major advantage of being for the sole use of a visiting party of up to 32 people. Essentially, the Centre is run on a self-catering basis however, we can recommend a local, professional, catering service who are able to provide all food required by a group. The food can be provided to suit any form of diet required - even special diets. Simply call our bookings secretary or email us for information regarding the catering company.

If you are unsure whether the facilities meet your requirements or if you would like to view the Centre to familiarize yourself with the layout and facilities, then call:- Mark McLoughlin (Tel : 01457 - 871663) or Pam Byrne (01457 820149)
