General

  • Wild camping experience in the southern Peak District
  • Bakewell 10 minutes' drive; 20 minutes to Buxton
  • A mile from an award-winning pub; views over Lathkill Dale

If a laidback wild camping break is just what you need right now, Lathkill Wild Campsite is likely to tick a lot of boxes. A peaceful Peak District location? Tick. Views over hills? Tick. Dog-friendly and relaxing? Tick, again.

Many guests return again and again for this place’s friendly and welcoming atmosphere, as well as the convenient location. On the edge of the village of Over Haddon, it’s only a 10-minute car journey to get to Bakewell, one of the top visitor spots in the Peak District National Park.

Peaceful, wild-style camping is the vibe here, and that carries over into the facilities. A toilet, fresh water, firepits for hire and firewood for sale make staying here an experience that's both convenient and hands-on.

Overlooking Lathkill Dale and with far-reaching views over the surrounding area, many circular walks and bike routes await close by. And on the food front, the site is about a mile from an award-winning pub, which is easy to walk to, and the village also has tea rooms, public toilets and a bus stop serving local destinations.

For anything a bit bigger in scale (like supermarkets, A road access and museums), you'll want to head in the direction of Bakewell (10 minutes), while the similarly-sized spa town of Buxton (20 minutes) has a heritage trail, spas and shops.

Local attractions

A Peak District break is bound to be peaceful with a visit to Chatsworth House (20 minutes’ drive). This country house has over 25 rooms, including a painted hall and sculpture room, and the grounds are just as splendid. So, take the kids to meet the pygmy goats in the farmyard, eat according to the season at the estate’s restaurants or take a buggy tour.

Haddon Hall (15 minutes) is another historical hole, with a medieval park in fact, which can be explored on tours. Then, there’s Matlock (20 minutes) too, which was an ancient spa town and now a gateway for bike rides, hikes and the lot.

If staying active is high on your priorities, a visit to the Hathersage Swimming Pool (25 minutes) is the place to practice your backstroke under the open sky. You’re bound to get in some steps around Alton Towers (40 minutes) too, running between rides.

Dovedale (30 minutes), of course, is a place for proper practical hikes. The valley is almost three miles long, and there are stepping stones to pass on your way around this scenic stretch of land.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (2.4 miles)
  • Chatsworth (4.4 miles)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (8.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (4.9 miles)
