Bowers Mill Aparthotel: Gateway to the Peaks


Nestled in the picturesque town of Barkisland in Halifax, West Yorkshire, lies the Bowers Mill Aparthotel - a luxurious retreat that serves as a gateway to the Peaks. The Peak District, also known as High Peak, is an area of breathtaking natural beauty that spans over 555 square miles of central England. With its stunning landscapes, endless outdoor activities and inviting pubs, the Peak District is an ideal destination for anyone seeking a relaxing and refreshing getaway.


One of the main attractions of the Peak District is its vast network of walking trails. Whether you are an experienced hiker or a casual walker, there is a route for everyone. The Millstone Edge Walk, located just a short drive from Bowers Mill Aparthotel, is a popular trail offering panoramic countryside views. The Kinder Scout walk, which starts in the village of Edale, is another must-do for anyone visiting the area. This challenging walk takes you through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Peaks and rewards you with stunning views from the summit.


For those who prefer something a bit more adventurous, the Peak District offers a range of outdoor activities. Rock climbing and abseiling are popular choices, with several climbing centres in the area. The Upper Derwent Valley is great for water sports, including canoeing, kayaking, and sailing. The site also has several adventure parks, including Go Ape, where you can enjoy zip-lining and other exciting activities.


After a long day of walking or adventure activities, there's nothing better than relaxing in a traditional Peak District pub. The area is famous for its cosy pubs, many of which serve locally brewed ales and hearty pub grub. The Fox and Goose in Hebden Bridge is a popular choice, as is The Robin Hood in Pecket Well. The White Lion in Heptonstall is also worth a visit, with its stunning views and welcoming atmosphere. A well-cooked dinner and a pint of local brew always go down a treat after a day of exploring!

Monsal Trail

In addition to outdoor activities and traditional pubs, the Peak District has plenty of other things to see and do. Visit the Monsal Trail, a former railway line converted into a walking and cycling path. The trail runs for 8.5 miles through some of the most stunning scenery in the Peaks, including the Monsal Viaduct, a spectacular Grade II listed structure that spans the Wye Valley. Along the way, you'll pass through several charming villages, including Great Longstone and Hassop, where you can stop for a coffee or a bite. The Monsal Trail is a great way to explore the area and take in the breathtaking views of the Peak District if you want to explore quickly!

Whether you’re looking for an action-packed adventure or a peaceful retreat, the Peak District has something for everyone, and with Bowers Mill Aparthotel as your base, you can explore this stunning area at your leisure.
