  • Flat, grassy and dog-friendly park opposite Shining Cliff Woods
  • A 10-min drive to Belper and 30 from the Peak District National Park
  • Firepits for hire and local pubs within a mile of the site
Set your sights towards Tannenbaum Campsite for a high chance of a top time in the Derbyshire countryside – this flat, grassy and dog-friendly park is opposite the Higg Lane entrance of Shining Cliff Woods. This spot on the outskirts of the village of Alderwasley makes a grand base for walking, cycling and generally exploring the Peak District National Park a half-hour drive away. If you’re one for aquatic activities, you may be pleased to see that Carsington Water is a 20-minute drive away, for kayaking, sailing, fly fishing and standup paddleboarding. Along the banks, birdwatching, biking and bumbling about are welcome as well. Also nearby is the Crich Tramway Village at under 15 minutes’ drive away; visit here to see around 60 trams created between 1873 and 1982 sitting in a period-style settlement with an old-school pub, café, sweetshop and tram depots. Head back to the site via Wirksworth to do the big supermarket shop, then borrow one of Tannenbaum's firepits for extra warmth while stoking up the barbecue to prep fare. Alternatively, time it just right to drop by Belper (under 10 minutes) for the monthly farmers’ market; you can also have a classic tearoom treat in this town, try one of the modern restaurants or catch a flick in the small cinema. Other spots for seeking sustenance include local pubs within a mile of the site.

Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: Needed to get away and I chose the perfect site although I was the only person silly enough to go camping in a tent. The site itself has everything you need, toilets, shower and an area to wash up your dishes. (It has far fancier things for warmer weather) However it has views that cannot be beaten, despite the weather I was able to catch some gorgeous photos. Whilst camping I was able to use the one of the site's fire pits and Sharon kindly brought the fire wood to me. Sharon was great, really friendly and responsive! Pointed me in the direction of a lovely Inn which served amazing food and put a nice touch on the trip. I'm really looking forward to coming back when it's nicer weather and I'll be able to use more of the facilities provided.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Local attractions

Got mini members of the family on hol with you? Gear them up for a good time at Gulliver's Kingdom (15 minutes’ drive away), an amusement park for three to 13 year olds with roller coasters, tower rides and a log flume. This action-packed place also has a Jurassic-themed area with animatronic dinosaurs catering to palaeontologists in the making. Picnics are allowed at Gulliver's and a few fast food restaurants are dotted around among the dodgems, ball pit and Princess Play Area as well. And if the teens are in tow? Promise them a trip taking on the thrills of the Nemesis and Oblivion coasters at Alton Towers 45 minutes away. Small fry also love flying above the scenery on the cable car in Matlock Bath towards the Heights of Abraham, a park on top of Masson Hill where a little learning’s added into the mix thanks to cave and mine tours.
