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.

    A small, very clean site in a quiet location. Excellent recycling facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Noisy fellow campers, but this was obviously not the fault of the owners who dealt with the issue promptly and to my satisfaction, keeping me updated as to what action they were taking.

  • Liked: 

    Quite site in pleasant location.
    Some would find facilities a little "rustic", but for us they were fine and fitted in with the rural nature of the site.
    Be prepared to follow the advice signs and help yourself to a pitch. The owners run very busy lives. This again suited us but some may prefer the personal touch.
    Perfect for walkers who want to explore the Monsal Trail, walk to Bakewell, or nip into the village for a pint and a good meal.

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)
