Riddings Wood Holiday Park: Happy campers

General

  • Peaceful park near the Peak District
  • Easy access to Derby and Nottingham; two pubs five minutes' walk away
  • New toilet and shower block kept to immaculate standards

What a peaceful park this is for Peak District hols – on 11 acres of quiet woodland near the national park and set deep in the Derbyshire countryside with picnic areas peppered all around.

And what a pleasing park this is for those who insist on amenities being immaculate and up to date – the toilet and shower block comes with disabled access, baby changing, launderette and showers with hot and cold water, and is kept in tiptop condition at all times by the friendly site team.

Riddings Wood Holiday Park is a rural park but with easy access to urban centres like Derby and Nottingham as well as to the hikes, bike rides and canters of the Peak District. (If you're a bit bamboozled as to what to do first, have a look at the tourist info point in reception or ask the team for tips.) Campfires are allowed if you need a bit of warming upon return.

And finally, what a pint-friendly site Riddings Wood is too – the only thatched-roof pub in Derbyshire, Moulders Arms (aka The Thack), is a short stroll away; and the Seven Stars, a community pub, is just across the road. Cheers…

  • Liked: 

    The location was great as was the bbq area and the hot tub.

    Disliked: 

    The sofa bed was so uncomfortable. No storage and there was a leak on the bathroom dick so all the wall was mouldy and smelled bad . The hot tub went down below the level and we had to wait to have this refilled before we could use it.

Quiet lodges, friendly staff nice pet friendly area12/07/2021

  • Oak lodge (hot tub, pet friendly)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Stayed in pet friendly lodge was a nice little accommodation. Has its own hot tub. Fenced in area was nice with two little dogs.
    Very quiet and relaxing nice location we would go again

    Disliked: 

    We needed to obviously use the sofa bed and we were very disappointed that we weren’t left a sheet for it and the mattress for it was stained and dirty looking.
    Definitely needs a new mattress and I’d suggest a mattress protective cover that can be washed in between guests stays.
    Luckily we had a cover with us to use on the sofa bed mattress.
    We didn’t let this ruin our stay but it was disappointing to see this as rest of the accommodation seemed nice

Local attractions

To the Peak! The Peak District National Park is but a short drive from Riddings Wood Holiday Park, and has a bit of what you fancy for all ages and inclinations.

If you're in the area to hike, there are more Peak District trails than you can shake a (walking) stick at, from the shorter treks of seven or so miles around the upper Dove Valley and Pilsbury Castle, to long-distance paths like the Limestone Way (46 miles), the Derwent Valley Heritage Way (55 miles) or the Peak District parts of the Pennine Way, running for 268 miles from the northern Peak District to just inside the Scottish border.

Climbers and cavers also delve into all things Peak: thousands of routes for all abilities are all over the park for climbers, including Burcen Edge for beginners and more hair-raising ascents like Debauchery and Mad Dogs and Englishmen for the severely experienced.

If you're of a cavernous disposition, make your way to the village of Castleton and its four show caves, Blue John, the Peak, Treak Cliff and Speedwell Cavern with underground boat trip. Matlock Bath has a cable car to take adventurers to limestone caverns The Heights of Abraham, and Poole's Cavern near Buxton has vast caves to explore before an above-surface walk around Buxton Country Park.

Other attractions like Chatsworth House and Gardens and the old Crich Tramway are to hand for the historically-minded, alongside old Peak District villages and market towns for tearooms, restaurants, family pubs and lots of shopping: try Buxton, Ashbourne and Bakewell to start you off.

Back at Matlock Bath, let the kids go large at the rides and attractions of theme and play park Gullivers Kingdom for ages two to 13; the 600-acre Matlock Farm Park nearby should keep them busy for a bit too.

Must see

  • Hardwick Old Hall (7.4 miles)
