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).

We have just returned from 4 nights at Hayfield, our second trip to this site. Unfortunately, we have run out of time to visit again this season but it's top of our list to visit again next year.
A very pleasant reception always from Jayne, Steve, Sarah and Sid who despite all working hard to keep the site clean and tidy, always have time to answer a query or give directions or advice whenever asked. The facilities are well maintained and the toilets and showers are cleaned and monitored daily.
We were offered a choice of pitch and chose the hard-standing area which was spacious and very quiet. We didn't hear a sound from the family group staying in the Pods behind us which was super. The site is in an ideal position for exploring the Dark Peaks, including Kinder Scout which is easily accessible from the site. A book of walks of different lengths and degrees of difficulty is available to buy from the site reception. Also the village of Hayfield is about 1 mile down the road, ideal for a walk with a couple of nice pubs offering good food. Also the Sportsman pub can be accessed up a path directly from the campsite and this also offers a very good menu to suit all tastes. All of the pubs are dog friendly and are used to receiving people in their walking boots.
We spent a lot of our holiday chatting to everyone that we met and many people said that they returned to Hayfield regularly as everyone, including the staff are so friendly. We couldn't agree more and can't wait to return again next season.
