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

We walked up Lantern Pike, went to Go-Ape in Buxton and then did a superb circular walk up William Clough to the Pennine Way. Came down from Kinder Low End almost direct to the campsite. Good mix of people using the site which was well kept, clean and peaceful. We really liked the easy access to Hayfield and the surrounding area. Plenty of outlets for food and pubs seem to offer some evening entertainment. Had some very good food in the Sportsman which is just down the track from the site. Only downside was the time that the toilet blocks we're closed for cleaning and there didn't seem to be a games/tv room. The team on reception were very helpful when we had visitors and made arrangements for parking on site so we could take advantage of the location.

This review is for Hayfield

From the Hayfield campsite one can walk out into Kinder, Edale, or the Sett valley trail to New Mills. New Mills and the Torrs start at the museum, walk the stainless steel bridge above the Goyt, explore where the factories were taking power from the river in the industrial revolution, its all there to see. Walk up to Swizzels, stand on the canal towpath, see the machinery, smell the sweets. Take in the ambience of Whalley Bridge and the canal, head down to Bugsley Junction and imagine how life would be years ago producing lime and limestone the refurbished layout is fantastic. Glossop is another interesting town to visit in the High Peak. Manchester is a sort train ride away for a day out. Back in Hayfield find the trail to Snake inn and imagine the Pack Horse trains heading over high peak to Sheffield, walk along to the carpark by the campsite and view the plaque in memory of the mass trespass of 1932. The lure of Kinder, boots on, Ordnance map, good clothing, drinks and sandwiches, check the weather forecast and take to the hills. Try Edale Cross for Kinder returning via Williams Clough or head down the Jacobs ladder to Edale ..here one can return to New Mills by train then back along the Sett trail or by bus to Hayfield. I late wife and I used the campsite as a springboard to dozens of exciting locations with miles of walking. Swizzels sweets, they were making Parmalet! violets by the millions, the aroma embedded in my mind, the High Peak holds super memories. The Caravan and camping club site lets you explore the region and yes the Heron does find fish in the river Sett just outside the campsite. Roger Duff

This review is for Hayfield

If walking is your thing, then the site is at the bottom of Kinder Scout and there are a range of walks from easy to arduous all directly from your unit. A short walk to the nearest pub and only a 15/20 minute walk to Hayfield which has a range of pubs, eateries and shops. We have 2 springer spaniels and it's all very dog friendly. They love it as much as we do. There's a nice mix of tents and motorhomes (no caravans due to access issues) and overall there is a really nice feel and atmosphere to the site. Staff are superb and there's a small shop for essentials, newspapers, etc. Facilities excellent - and spotless! Can't recommend it highly enough.

There is definitely a need for a good site entrance sign.

This review is for Hayfield

There is definitely a need for a good site entrance sign. We missed it and had a very difficult drive when we had to continue to the end of the valley to turn around. Life was not made easier by another car driver who had parked the car illegally in the only turning spot. Any one with a longer wheelbase motorhome than ours would have been in serious trouble. The entrance to the site is on the right at Bowden bridge, just before the main car park which is on the left. DON'T MISS IT! Although the facilities are new, there are not enough showers, etc., to service a site which caters for campers who do not have showers in their caravans (no caravans allowed on site). Another block is needed. This makes it impossible for the managers to keep the washing/shower facilities clean all day (esp. when lots of campers wear muddy boots!). They try their utmost! The area is lovely and the walking varies from easy to hard (up KInder via Jacob's Ladder in Edale) to suit taste. Hayfield is small, but pretty and there are good eateries around.
