The Nightingale Centre and its Unitarian links go back to the early 1930’s when a convalescent home for ex-servicemen was built on the site in Great Hucklow. This has now been converted into three residences and is situated opposite the village chapel. It is these buildings along with an area of ancient woodland that makes up the present-day Nightingale complex. The centre provides a place where groups of people of all ages can meet in a caring, warm and friendly environment allowing everyone who crosses the threshold to benefit from its unique ambience.
The centre is situated in the heart of the Peak District on the border of the White and Dark Peak, just off the B6049, north of the A623 (Stockport to Chesterfield road), near Tideswell. Sheffield (15 miles) or Hope (4 miles).
The attractive and well equipped dining room serves a wide variety of excellent food. Vegetarian and special diets are well catered for.
The centre has 28 bedrooms and sleeps up to 71. Accommodation comprises of: 3 standard single rooms, 1 standard double room, 9 standard twin rooms, 1 standard triple room, 2 en-suite double rooms, 4 en-suite twin rooms, 3 en-suite triple rooms, and 1 triple en-suite (1 double and 1 single). Standard (non-en-suite) rooms have a wash hand basin.
