Pretty is what you get at Hope Valley Campsite in the Peak District National Park. It’s pretty in the way of scenery… but also pretty darn peaceful, as the site rolls out over six acres and looks over a valley and the river Derwent. It’s also two miles from Bamford Edge (which, by the way, is half an hour’s walk away when you fancy an uphill hike above a reservoir).
Surrounded by the national park’s slopes but flat around the site, things are quite simple here in the way of facilities. There’s a water supply and portaloos, and then opposite the site, a children’s playground and space to get some games going next to the river.
There’s good access to the road when you’re ready to set off somewhere just as nice. When you’re going on foot, the Thornhill Trail might attract your attention. It starts near the site and leads the way to Ladybower Reservoir in around 40 minutes.
Pubs are pretty plentiful around this area too. You might like to stop off at the pub down in Bamford (it’s just a ten-minute walk away) or head into Castleton, where there are a larger handful of pubs 10 minutes’ drive away. Don’t worry about searching far and wide for food supplies, as there’s a farm shop and a small food shop five minutes’ drive away from the site too.

An afternoon by the lido? It’s only a five minutes’ drive to reach such a place from Hope Valley Campsite. Add five to 10 minutes onto your journey time and you could be on an underground boat trip at Speedwell Cavern (10 minutes) or taking a tour around the slate, stalagmites and stalactites at Blue John Cavern (15 minutes).
For a little stroll and some fur (or in the alpacas’ case, wool) therapy, Mayfield Alpacas Animal Park (15 minutes) may be your next stop – the animal park has skunks, meerkats and other creatures too.
As for those staple activities associated with the Peak District, a cycle down the disused railway on the Monsal Trail (20 minutes) is nicely followed by a brew and Bakewell pudding along the riverbank and medieval bridge in Bakewell (25 minutes).
There’s a stepping stones walk at Chee Dale (half an hour) or the huge grounds at Chatsworth House (25 minutes) when you’re in need of more wanderings (or time with the playgrounds and farmyard animals, in the case of the latter). Buxton (half an hour), a thermal spa town, is equal parts peaceful and historic, with a heritage trail you may want to follow instead.
