Edale's a small place Duncan, I am sure we can find somewhere suitable. PM or email me or Robin with your approx budget and the sort of thing you're looking for and I'm sure we can make some suggestions.

Stayed at YHA for previous 2 courses. If in communal mens bedroom take eye shield and ear plugs as it can be noisy.
By Sunday I was getting tired and not the best state for axing safely.
If with family try get a 4 bed room with on-suite which is quiet nice but I don't know if they have any of these
(Just checked they do have famil rooms.) It's easy and nice to walk there in the morning but would not risk it in the dark.

That's great Duncan. It's a lovely walk from there into the village centre if you walk up the drive to the Youth Hostel then there's a footpath that runs across through the fields and comes out by the Peak Park information centre.

Yup. So's the beer.

The burgers are great, as is the Grindsbrook Chicken, and the fish (at young Ollie Wood's recommendation last year). The starters and the puddings are also good.

There's usually 4 (?) real ales on as well.
How sharp is sharp enough?

I reckon you'll be walking past us at the campsite.
My other half has put dibs on doing the spoon course in September( I did the bowls in Feb) so I'll probably be camping with our girls.

Quick course update:
We have had a cancellation on the 14-16 June developers spoon carving course so there is now 1 place available.
We added an extra bowl carving course 26-28 May which still has space - this one is suitable for beginners or developers.
Everything else is fully booked.
Full details and booking form here.

course is one week away and we actually are driving up friday morning :shock: :D as its also a family holiday for a week

and ive just realised i dont actually have any of my own spoon knives to take :roll: (seem ot always sell any that i make just for me and ive only been using my indian crooked knife recently) . so have been rushing to get some done in time and ive modded them from the std patterns and left them a little ruff so i should find it harder to sell em :lol:

see you there

We've got a new stove for our tent so I'm camping while my other half gets to do spoons :)
He's just pointed out staying in a B&B would have been cheaper,lol.
Looking forward to, well, hearing about it!
