The "Pit Stop" is closed to all visiters due to the Coronavirus until we have the all clear.
Peak Park Conservation Centre
The Peak Park Conservation Centre is a "Pit Stop" in the centre of the Peak District National Park for people who arrive under their own power (Foot Bashers, Pedal Pushers) looking to Sleep & eat, Rest & Relax and a toilet! If you like what we offer or have suggestions on how we can improve as a non profit organisation, please tell us for your next visit!
We worked out an amazing combination based on simple functionality and user's comfort. They will totally impress you with their powerful contributions to our enjoyment of the countryside.
Small farming projects on our land with ponies, sheep and a small number of agricultural processes producing, food and other crops while protecting wildlife that are indigenous to the UK and more particularly their sustainability in the Peak District National Park for future generations. Currently we farm bees and the hedge rows to produce Honey, Jam, Chutney and Sloe Gin!
Outdoor Pursuits Base
The Peak Park Conservation Centre offers a "Pit Stop" for people who arrive under their own power to pull in for rest, relaxation and loo break before moving on to explore more of the Peak District National Park. We have basic camping (cold water tap and portaloo). We currently only allow foot bashers and pedal pushers to camp as a base to do "Your Thing".
Rural Community Ideas
We want the young of all ages out of the classroom and into the countryside so they can touch, smell and feel the environment around them which is their heritage. The Peak Park Conservation Centre is available to all local schools and colleges with conservation projects to visit in small groups. We are also available to other groups like Caroline Court in Hope to visit.
Renew & recycle energy that comes from resources, which are naturally replenished, reusable, sustainable and readably available in the Peak Park, such as sunlight, wind, water, biomass and geothermal heat. We aim to implement small developments using our land and buildings to demonstrate how we as a community can harness these resources in an affordable way.
We are a non profit organisation located at "The Stables" in the little village of Thornhill in the Hope Valley. We aim to make our "Pit Stop" a user friendly visitor experience in a countryside setting more pleasant than usual roadside locations.
By making a pit stop you won't have a better opportunity to view the basic facilities available in beautiful surroundings. If you like what you see and the idea behind it please get involved, volunteer your time, suggestions & money to help us improve our facilities to make future “Pit Stops” more enjoyable for yourself and others.

It was great to stop off for a couple of hours for a rest, have a drink, refill my water bottle and use the loo before continuing my journey.
Derrick and I found the Peak Park Conservation Centre website and decided to pay it a visit just to be nosy! Glad we did, we will return with others.
I agree with Walter, the PeakParkCC is worth a visit as long as its not raining because it is all outside, apart from the loo!
