Glenbrook is located in the heart of the Peak District between the villages of Hope and Hathersage, and is ideally situated for outdoor pursuits, exploring the local villages or just enjoying activities within the nine acres of grounds.

The self-catering indoor accommodation can accommodate parties ranging in size from 4 to 79, in a variety of buildings and combinations of buildings. Glenbrook House sleeps 30, Derwent has 35 beds, Peveril flat accommodates 10 and Chatsworth sleeps 4 (an ideal holiday flat). All beds are bunks except for Chatsworth.

There are three camping fields, accommodating up to 150 campers in five designated camping areas, a shower/toilet block and a solid wet-weather shelter on one of the sites. Altar fires, fridges and a freezer are available for campers to use free of charge.

There is a wooded area that is ideal for shelter building, a campfire circle, a drying room and a gift shop.

Glenbrook is by Girlguiding members, and includes Scouting, mid-week bookings from schools and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award candidates. All youth groups are welcome and corporate bookings are considered mid-week and out of season.

We also run residential events that are suitable for young people working towards their Queen's Guide Award or Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.


Available on-site activities include archery, pioneering, adventure course, traverse wall, orienteering course, stream-dipping, backwards cooking, shelter building, and trails.

Our off-site activities, led by Glenbrook instructors, include walking, 'weaselling' (scrambling), rock climbing, and abseiling from Monsal Head Viaduct.

Other activities available in the area include cycle hire (a Glenbrook instructor can be used), Hathersage open-air swimming, horse riding and visiting the show caves at Castleton.

New activities are being added all the time, so please visit our website or find us on Facebook for up-to-date information.

Be challenged by new experiences & achieve a sense of pride in accomplishment.
