Situated half a mile outside the village of Castleton in the Peak District, in a quiet rural setting, The Rotary Centre provides an ideal base for a range of activities in the surrounding area. During your stay, your group will have exclusive use of the buildings and there is a large grassed area for playing games and other activities.
Inspection of the facilities by organisers is welcomed and recommended to view the quality of the accommodation available. Please telephone 0114 281 3132 to arrange a suitable time.
The Centre is fully equipped for self catering but if groups require catering to be provided we now have a contact who can do this for you. Please see the catering page for details.
In 1920 the members of the newly formed Rotary Club of Sheffield decided to take a group of boys (whose fathers had been killed during the First World War) away for a week-long holiday. In 1935 the land was purchased in Castleton to make a permanent base for these holidays and they have continued right up to the present day. The Rotary Club now runs 3 weeks with 30 children on each week, inviting children aged 9-13 who are recommended as deserving a residential activity holiday due to their circumstances.
The Rotary Centre is 18 miles from Sheffield and 25 miles from Manchester. It is easily accessible from all over the UK, being only 40 minutes from both the M1 and the M6.
The postcode for SatNav is S33 8WB - but this will take you to a nearby farm some three fields away so please use the instructions below once you get into the village:
From Sheffield: Enter the village, turn right into Millbridge and continue ahead, the road forks in front of you, take the right fork and you will see the Rotary sign at the bottom of the gravel lane to the Centre.
The Centre is owned and operated by The Sheffield Rotary Charity (a registered charity No. 225487) with the management team made up from members of the Rotary Club of Sheffield.
