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.

Very friendly and welcoming site, well-kept, surrounded by great countryside walks.

This review is for Hayfield

Very friendly and welcoming site, well-kept, surrounded by great countryside walks. Handy for Manchester, about a 40 minute drive, and Alton Towers at just over an hour away. We were, however, not impressed with the (only) shower block closing to be cleaned 10.30-12 every morning. The disabled toilet is left open, but we can't be the only ones to want a lazy morning now and then, and not to have to rush a cooked breakfast so we could all be in and out of the shower by 10.30? This caused a delay on the last day too when by the time we had taken the tent down in the rain, we had to wait, mud covered, for the cleaning to finish before we could shower and leave. We've camped at a lot of sites in our time, and not had this problem before - most sites clean during afternoon quiet periods. Shame, because apart from this it's a great site.

Site was fully operational with all facilities working and spotless most of the time.

This review is for Hayfield

Site was fully operational with all facilities working and spotless most of the time. Where visitors could not read, boots were not removed before entering toilet blocks. Sadly, some visitors fail to see the importance of supervising their children in the toilets or in the playground. Not the fault of the C & C club, but a reflection of laissez faire parenting. The access to the site requires careful and attentive driving from the village, but most drivers show due consideration. The site is well placed for all regional attractions if one accepts the vagaries of roadworks and allows generous travelling time. This is a site that is well worth a visit - and I would be happy to return out of season to continue to explore the locality. The on-site staff are excellent and deserve praise for their professionalism and pride in the work they do.

This review is for Hayfield

I am a recently returning member to the club and Hayfield was my first camping experience for a few years. I was also doing this trip on my bicycle under my own steam , so again a new experience for me. I found the staff on site very friendly and helpful and even though I picked what must of been the worst week for weather ( tail end of the hurricane 10/08/14 ) I still enjoyed my stay. The countryside and the village were both beautiful and the locals friendly. The village incidentally is where they film the BBC drama The Village. Will be going back there myself and can fully recommend it to all .
