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 kind and friendly owners, who are happy to leave you to it.
    Even made us a cup of tea when we were feeling the cold.
    Lovely little girl (child of owners) played with my children all day and showed us around.
    She really made them feel welcome and made their first camping experience a really positive one.

Overall a decent little campsite at good prices. 28/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Friendly and helpful staff, can pitch up wherever you like, no strict rules pumped up anywhere they just let you get on with it and everyone there was respectful. Good location not too far from Castleton and Chapel has some nice pubs and a supermarket. Train lines didn't bother us and the freight trains don't run late on the weekends. Perfect phone signal and 4G. Prices were very good too.

    Disliked: 

    Pot washing area was a bit run down but served it's purpose, toilets and showers a little dated but were cleaned regularly and were plenty good enough.

    The Location is perfect for touring round the Peak District

    Disliked: 

    The site is very good for camping but the toilet block and showers really let the site down, wouldn't take much to keep the place clean, and for that reason I would not go back, it's real shame because it is a great Location

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.
