Dimmingsdale is covered in a beautiful ancient woodland. The woods have dozens of footpaths which allow ramblers to discover its natural beauty year round. The area is also a very popular mountain biking area with trails from the family friendly xc routes all the way up to the gnarly and steep enduro and downhill tracks. Rock climbing is also on offer as dimmingsdale boasts some of Englands finest sandstone bouldering crags, all within walking distance of the lodge, even with a heavy mat on your back.
