General

  • Tent camping in a wildlife haven with spectacular views
  • Local produce sold on site
  • Pubs, takeaways, restaurants and supermarket within walking distance

Rabbits by day, bats by night, all in a High Peak wildlife haven with Peak District scenery to make one's heart soar… come camping at Chapel Campsite. It's on a seven-acre site full of local wildlife, with a friendly welcoming team ready at reception to offer info on the (many) Peak District attractions and walks nearby.

The campsite is on the outskirts of Chapel-en-le-Frith village with a supermarket, restaurants, takeaways and several pubs all a short stroll away, and there's a shop on site too selling local produce for on-site barbecues.

Chapel Campsite takes tents on grass pitches, and has decent amenities for guests including separate ladies' and gents' loos and showers, a parent and baby washroom, and disabled facilities.

Parking for one car is included in the pitch price, but if you're getting about under your own steam, Chapel Campsite is two minutes' walk from Chapel-en-le-Frith train station for trains to Buxton and beyond.

    Very friendly welcome - we have been offered free fresh farm eggs for breakfast, they were really good ! Very quick to help
    We could pick any where to place our tent and there was loads of places to pick from. Really great for those who don't want to be camping on top of others.
    We had no limit to the size of the pitch and also had enough space to kick some football next to the tent.
    Beautiful mountain views.

It was ok for a cheap break, but not a luxurious camp site. 30/05/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Elizabeth S. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch (two man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The pitches were flat and grassy. There was room between the tents and we were able to pitch where we wanted so we could go next to other family members. It was close to the village, so convenient for shops and restaurants and was well placed for walking at Edale.

    Disliked: 

    There was a train line which went right next to the site, which had freight trains passing every hour or so throughout the night. This was very noisy as the trains would apply their squeaky breaks at 4 in the morning. The site facilities were basic and showers were cold - it was luck if you got any hot water. The site was quite messy and toilets were not very clean. It was not the nature reserve I was expecting.

    Very warm welcoming people who were happy to help. We didn’t feel restricted in pitch placement- plenty of free space as well as designated pitch areas.

    Lovely eggs!

    Disliked: 

    Showers did run cold on occasion and wouldn’t want to have to queue for toilets if the site was really busy.

Local attractions

Chapel-en-le-Frith a few minutes' walk away has a fair bit to see once its many pubs and restaurants have been thoroughly investigated, including an old cobbled marketplace (a market is still held here every Thursday) complete with town stocks, many old buildings and the town church, dedicated to Thomas à Becket. If you need to work off some Peak District pies and pints, Chapel Leisure has a gym, tennis courts, football pitches and fitness classes.

Just outside Chapel-en-le-Frith is the Chestnut Centre, a wildlife park with owls, otters, polecats, deer and regular events like keeper experience days and kids' arts and crafts sessions. A golf club is just outside the town too, between Chapel-en-le-Frith and Whaley Bridge.

Take the train from Chapel-en-le-Frith station to Buxton, one of the most famed places around the Peak District and a bit of a record breaker in the heady position of England's highest market town. Take a tram from the Pavilion Gardens to see the town in leisurely style, sticking around into the evening for a show at the opera house or Pavilion Arts Centre.

Outside Buxton, the huge limestone caves of Poole's Cavern in Buxton Country Park are a popular pull for visitors – rumour has it that the Romans worshipped here all those years ago – and the country park itself has heaps of other heady things to do like swinging around at Go Ape or climbing the woodland path to birdwatch and picnic at Grin Low.

Shoppers are sorted at Buxton's Spring Gardens centre, while those who want even more opps to spend their cash can take the train in the opposite direction from Chapel-en-le-Frith to Manchester.
