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.
Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).
Camping Pods are available at this campsite.

This was our second stay and we are booked again for a weekend in June. This is a lovely site with clean facilities and friendly and helpful hosts. At the base of Kinder Scout with Hayfield village a short walk along the river. Easy access out of the site for dog exercising and a great pub (The Sportsman) a 5 minute walk away.
What more could you want.......
- Location: Country
- Suitable For: Active break
Views, wild rabbits and walks from the site.
Not disabled friendly.
Hook up pitches are in the shade in the evening and back onto a popular dog walk.
Pitches are close so if your neighbour smokes or has a BBQ your pitch will stink.
Internet connection is too slow- don't expect to get any work done.
Bizarrely the site is advertised as being peaceful, in reality people were playing duff duff 'music' on site even after 11pm. Dogs were barking at 7am on Sunday- so don't expect a Sunday lie in.
People did not obey the signs in the toilet block; the shower floor was muddy and the sink was covered in lots of toothpaste, pencil shavings and a rubbish bag was left next to it.
The wardens are not singing from the same hymn sheet- I parked my car where I was told to, only to be told to move it a few days later by a different warden.
The site is geared more towards camper vans than tents: no communal fridge/ freezer or socket for backpackers to charge their 'phones.
The site gets very windy and the ground is stoney, so take this into account when deciding upon which tent pegs to take.
I was hoping to have a quiet break at this site, as I have managed to at others. However, this site turned out not to be that sort of place. If you like to consume alcohol, animal corpse, are a dog 'lover', someone who likes duff duff 'music' and you don't mind using facilities that other campers have left in a disgusting state, then you might enjoy this site and the village facilities. If, however, you're a peace loving vegan/ veggie, you dislike dogs or you need internet access whilst you're away, consider elsewhere.

Thanks to Managers/Assistants Jayne/Steve and Sarah/Sid for making our stay at Hayfield a very happy experience. The site is kept beautifully tidy and clean, cannot fault them. They even sang Happy Birthday to me when I walked in the office earlier this month, now you don't always get that do you. We like a more quiet life now, but lots to do round here if you are more of the energetic type.
