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 review is for Hayfield

Returned to this site after a 5 yr break, it now has a refurbished toilet/facilities block, some camping pods as well as a new admin hut and the friendliness and smiles are still there along with that personal touch. 10/10 in my view and would recommend this site whether your looking for a quiet weekend away or a base to explore the Peaks, can't wait to get back there and cannot believe I've left it so long. See you again soon Hayfield!!!!

Perfectly located for challenging or gentle walks, with great pubs in walking distance, we spent a wonderful weekend here. The bathroom was spotless and never felt busy. The staff are friendly and helpful and the site itself felt spacious and peaceful. We will definitely be returning!

The site was well located except for the flight path as others have mentioned.

This review is for Hayfield

The site was well located except for the flight path as others have mentioned. Unfortunately I didn't read the warning regarding midges so be prepared. Also, we made the mistake of buying some damp coal that smoked. This resulted in being accused of burning wood and an unpleasant encounter with the staff. Also, make sure to bring a tape measure to ensure you pitch your tent at least 6 metres from others as we were told multiple times.
