Edale also has two welcoming pubs; The Old Nags Head and The Rambler Inn that both offer great food and drink, perfect as a reward after a long days walk.
There are also a two cafe's; Penny Pot Café and Newfold Farm Cafe, where you can get you a lovely coffee or a hot chocolate, and even a bite to eat to take on your adventure.
Forgotten that essential item, then Edale General Store is the place to go, just a short walk to the end of the village.
