Gentle strolls and more challenging climbs can both be enjoyed near this Club Site.
Our Hayfield Club campsite sits at the foot of the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park. This is walking country where you can enjoy anything from a gentle stroll to a more challenging climb. If you prefer the former, Hayfield village (the backdrop for the BBC’s TV drama The Village) is a 15-minute stream-side stroll from the site. For the latter, a walk up Lantern Pike rewards you with a 360 vista over seven counties. The walk up Kinder from the west side is one of the classic excursions of the Peak District. The walk starts at Bowden Bridge car park and takes around four-and-a-half hours.
Catch your breath and relax at Hayfield. This is a peaceful campsite in a secluded location with excellent on site facilities including a family/disabled washroom, drying facilities, children’s play area and a well-stocked site shop.
The surrounding area has a variety of attractions. South of the site is the Chestnut Centre Conservation Park, home to otters and owls. East at Castleton is Peveril Castle. Make the climb to the hilltop where the Norman fortress sits and you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views across the Hope Valley. Castleton is home to a series of caverns including the Blue John Cavern famous for its minerals, fossils, stalagmites and stalactites.
The Freshfields Donkey Sanctuary, Quarry bank Mill and Styal Estate in Wilmslow and Go Ape! At Buxton Country Park are other popular local attractions.

An excellent site with very friendly staff, in a perfect location for walking. I'd recommend though if you want a peaceful break then this site is not it, groups it seems are allowed and this meant a lot of noise in the evenings. On one of our nights stay there was a very drunken women shouting at 1am across the whole campsite with strong language etc who clearly had fallen out with her partner, waking everyone up and this went on for over 30 mins. We've only visited once so not sure if this is something that happens often as there were quite a few groups there when we stayed. Other than this, a lovely site!

I concur with the views, a few decorative rabbits and lovely wheelchair-friendly riverside walk. Pitches were the standard Club size - not close. How she can comment that the site was not disabled friendly when there was a super wet room for my disabled husband I do not know. I particularly called in to the Office to congratulate staff on the cleanliness of the toilets and was told they are checked every hour. They were sure that they had not had a bag of rubbish to clear from them at any time. I imagine someone just put it down temporarily and then took it to the correct place when they left.
The site was very quiet wen we were there - Thurs 19 May - apart from the birdsong at dawn, which I certainly don't want to complain about!
I think it very sad that site managers, doing their best and proud of the standards they set themselves are publicly, and I believe wrongly, castigated.

From the moment we arrived until our departure the staff were very helpful. We visited mid week and the site was quiet and peaceful. The facilities are all maintained to a very high standard. We found the number of hooks in the showers to be very useful, along with the fixed seat - other sites take note! The walks booklet available from Reception (cost �3) was very useful.
