Peak District Club Campsites
Stay in the Peak District
Britain’s first National Park and Europe’s busiest is a diverse landscape that meanders through several counties in central northern England. Its industrial heritage and rugged beauty sit comfortably beside stately homes and prehistoric sites like Arbor Low, making the Peak District the perfect place to book a campsite or a camping holiday. Contrary to its name, the Peak District isn’t filled with peaks, but instead encompasses verdant valleys, rolling hills, wild moorland, and limestone dales – an ensemble of the UK’s finest natural landscapes.
Whether you’re looking for a national park to visit over the weekend or want to plan an activity holiday the whole family will love, our campsites in the Peak District will help you to make the most of your time away. Get out and about with walking routes, horse riding, climbing, caving or even paragliding, while the plethora of local villages with traditional pubs and restaurants are a great way to spend the evening. While visiting the nearby towns and villages, you’re sure to find a range of popular farmers’ markets selling local foods and goods; a stop at the Original Bakewell Pudding Shop is a favourite on many people’s lists.
Historical sites and exciting activities
Explore heritage museums and caves – from the majestic Chatsworth House, where we have a campsite nearby, to the intriguing Magpie Mines in Bakewell – or immerse yourself among nature with a trip to Kinder Scout, Mam Tor, or Stanage Edge, the latter being a well-known spot for walks and rock climbing. Although if you’re planning to wend your way along some of the Peak District’s walking routes then you’ll be spoilt for choice, with plenty on offer.
There are a range of activities to get involved with, too. Aside from the typical adventure-style activities available, there’s a whole host of attractions for families and little ones. Gulliver’s Kingdom is a great choice for those with young children, while Peak Wildlife Park will bring you face to face with exotic and endangered animals. All in all, there are few better places to head for a camping or caravan holiday.
