Swallowholme Camping & Caravan Park is situated on the edge of the village of Bamford in the Hope Valley within the Peak District National Park. The site is within walking distance of Bamford Station and the River Derwent runs alongside the site. Hathersage is only five minutes away by car where there is an outdoor heated swimming pool.
This small, family run site has a well kept shower and toilet block. There is also sinks for washing up and laundry.
In addition to the seasonal caravan pitches, we cater for a small number of touring caravans, motorhomes and tents. We have a few hard-standing but mainly grass pitches with electric hook-up. The site is fairly flat and local amenities are close by including a 24 hour mini-market. A Public House, Recreation Ground, Post Office and Village Shop are a short walk into the village. Sickleholme Golf Course is only 100 yards across the road. There are also two garden centres within walking distance of the site and there are bus stops close by.
The River Derwent runs by the site where fishing is permitted with a current licence. The site has plenty of wildlife including ducks, weasels, rabbits, owls and many species of wild birds. Swallowholme is a great site to use as a walking base.
Sorry but dogs are not allowed on site.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
