Derbyshire village with Robin Hood and Brontes connection
Can get busy at weekends and Bank Holidays
In a nutshell
Good Base for exploring Derbyshires treasures
Unusually, my recent 2 visits during March and April were during the unseasonably hot spell, and there wasn't even a drop of rain.
I was prepared though...... sunglasses and sun cream, layers - short sleeved t-shirt, fleece top and waterproof jacket!
Especially if going off of the beaten track, be aware that the weather can change very quickly, also that there are areas in Hathersage where it isn't possible to receive a cell phone signal.
Once out of the sun, it can be quite chilly.
There are plenty of shops/tea rooms/and bars to escape to should the weather become inclement!

Luggage and bags: A day sac for carrying camera/binoculars/spare fleece //maps etc.
As there is no taxi rank at the station, you will have a 5 minute walk to the George Hotel, maybe 10 minutes to the YHA, so travel light!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather can change quickly here, so pack for all weathers/seasons. It is possible to experience a variety of weather conditions within a few hours.
If you do 'get caught short' there are plenty of shops selling outdoor gear - CCC is probably the cheaper of these.
Sturdy footwear, especially if venturing onto the moors.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There is a pharmacy on Main Road, but bring essential medications/prescription with you.
Consider packing Sun protection, lip salve, muscle rub for post-walk, Compeed blister plasters, mossie repellent/anti-histamine, hay fever medication etc.
Photo Equipment: As much as you can carry - photographers heaven!
Waterproof case, in case of heavy rain.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Plenty of camping sites/Walking/Climbing opportunities.
Heated Outdoor Swimming Pool too!
So bring appropriate gear. As mentioned before, there are plenty of shops in Hathersage that are geared up for 'The Great Outdoors'
Maps/compass -if you know how to use these. Be aware that there are areas in Hathersage and surrounding areas where you can't get a signal for cell phones GPS etc
