The Nightingale Centre - Great Hucklow

    WELCOME to the venue with a difference! The perfect place for groups to enjoy conference and leisure activities.

    Groups of all kinds will appreciate the location, practical facilities, good home cooking and friendly welcome at the Nightingale Centre. Cosy, licensed, fully centrally heated throughout, the centre can be enjoyed by all ages at any time of the year. We cater for a wide range of groups, for example

    Conference & Commercial groups

    Both commercial and public organisations value the centre's excellent, licensed - and recently refurbished – facilities. We offer two good sized conference  rooms with plentiful “breakout” spaces, excellent sleeping accommodation and quality dining.

    Outdoors pursuits groups

    Our location on the border of the Dark and the White Peak, close to the Gritstone and the limestone caves, has encouraged many walking groups to use our centre, some year after year.

    School and youth groups

    The Nightingale Centre has long experience in hosting young people from primary school to University ages. The extensive grounds include a five-a-side football pitch and playground area - also an Iron Age roundhouse! We provide good indoor learning facilities with well-appointed meeting rooms and equipment. Accommodation is in single, twin or family rooms and/or in recently refurbished dormitory accommodation (with leaders rooms adjacent).

    The area offers good opportunities for field trips. Great Hucklow is situated at  the junction of limestone and shale. Just north of the village is the site of an ancient Iron Age fort. Lead was mined in these parts. Within walking distance of Great Hucklow is the plague village, Eyam. Nearby is Castleton with its Blue John caves and castle.

    Voluntary, faith and family groups

    Our flexible facilities have been found ideal by many voluntary groups. We have welcomed groups from a variety of different faiths. Families have booked the centre for weddings, special birthdays or other get-togethers. Our ability to respond to differing needs is something we pride ourselves on.
