Woodlanders Forest School is based in Shining Cliff woods.

Kerry is happy for you to contact her to discuss a bespoke session during your stay at the hostel – this will of course, depend upon her availability.

Woodlanders Forest School also runs regular sessions for families and children which you can book onto; these include Saturday and Holiday sessions.

White Peak Distillery – who produce Shining Cliff Gin – is located in Shining Cliff Woods next to the River Derwent. They are the first full-scale craft distillery in the region and create single malt whisky and other small batch spirits.

It is a 15 minute walk along glorious woodland footpaths to get from the hostel to the distillery.

They have beautifully refurbished a part of the old Derwent Wire Works site and offer distillery tours on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at £10 per person.
