General

  • Small rural campsite & working farm in the heart the of peak district
  • Many activities and attractions nearby
  • A short walk from the Monsal Trail and various local pubs

Right in the heart of the Peak District National Park, Dale Farm Rural Campsite near Bakewell is a quiet countryside place for those who like quiet countryside camping.

And for those who like cycling too, as you'll find the Monsal Trail a short pedal away from your peaceful pitch, eight and a half miles of traffic-free trail passing Bakewell on its route from Topley Pike to Darley Dale. And hiking: the Monsal Trail is a hoot on foot too and as it's the Peak District, many more miles can be found to pound nearby. (And for those who like trad country pubs: three are within a mile of the farm.)

Dale Farm Rural Campsite is on a working farm and has a loo block with washing-up area, and a small shop selling produce and award-winning baking from the farm.

    An absolutely fantastic and peaceful place to stay. Facilities are excellent and the farm shop is a bonus. The bell tents look lovely too. Walks around the area are beautiful and the local pubs are great. We booked for two nights and loved it so much we stayed for another two!

Very good site & will definitely stay again 18/09/2018

  • Touring electric grass motorhome pitch (large)

  • Liked: 

    Large pitches, not overlooked by others. Quiet site with close proximity to the village pubs for food in the evening when preferring not to cook in the van. Close to Monsal trail for riding down into Bakewell and loads of footpaths nearby.

    Disliked: 

    Free wifi was a bit hit & miss so purchased a 3 day pass, which only worked for 1 day before it said 'invalid voucher code' but it was only £1.50 so cheaper than some places for 24 hours; I didn't want to bother John at the farmhouse as I knew he was busy and didn't consider it was worth chasing for the amount paid - read a book instead!

Nice and quiet campsite 18/09/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Helen W. Confirmed

  • Hillside electric grass tent or campervan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This was our first camping trip in 26 years and we loved it,We were welcomed by a lovely chap who showed us where to go. It's only a small site on a working farm which makes it nice and secluded. The pitches are more than big enough (we had electrics) and quite level. The washing facilities are ok, toilets a little small but a new wash room is on the horizon which would make a great addition to the site. The location is good for walkers, close to the monsel trail and an easy walk to Bakewell.

    Our first visit to Dale Farm sure it won,t be our last .Site is on a working farm and only a hard working family of three to work on the farm & maintain the campsite so periods in the day when there will be no one personally available to deal with requests etc but sure only a phone call away from help . The site is in a beautiful
    peaceful setting yet only a stones throw away from the village and its amenities just the perfect location for us and as keen walkers plenty of variety in the area in that respect .Pitches are generously sized but could be very tight accessing site & pitch for caravans(we had a folding camper) certainly a motor mover would be a necessity on some pitches .
    Facilities are basic but clean £1 for a shower but you do get a full 5 mins + and lovely and hot to so we have no complaints there.
    Will definitely be returning in the future so well done the Dale farm team .

    Disliked: 

    Feel 2pm check in is a bit late this time of year 1pm works better for us and 11am check out .

Local attractions

Pretty much all whims are whetted in the Peak District, whether you're into outdoor photography, climbing, caving, mountain biking, hiking, rambling, sightseeing or shopping for Peak District produce and souvenirs.

Monsal Head of Monsale Dale is on the Monsale Trail and less than a mile away from Dale Farm Rural Campsite. It's one of the top spots in the region for stopping and taking pics of the River Wye, its dale and the utterly gorge Headstone Viaduct, so prepare to spend some time gazing around.

A few miles from base, the sweet town of Bakewell is another highly popular Peak District stop and is the only market town in the national park.

Also a few miles away, Chatsworth House is yet another much-visited Peak highlight and has been voted several times as Britain's fave country house. Austen fan? This is the house Elizabeth visited in Pride and Prejudice and it was used as Pemberley in the BBC's 2005 adaptation. Yes, that one, with Colin Firth, in the lake…

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (3.8 miles)
  • Chatsworth (4.0 miles)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (10.9 miles)

National Trust
