General

  • Working farm site in the Peak District with far-reaching views
  • A mile and a half from Mam Tor via a path; Castleton a mile
  • Next to a pop-up café (open weekends); dogs allowed

Hankering for a stunningly rugged landscape full of opportunities for hiking, cycling, climbing and other outdoor activities? On a working farm within the Peak District National Park, Castleton Camping is the place to be.

Regardless of whether you've come here to scale Mam Tor, the high peak a mile and a half from the site that’s accessible via a footpath, or whether you simply fancy a change of scenery, a stay at this laidback rural site opens up ample possibilities.

This place is half a mile from the small village of Castleton, which is well-served by pubs and cafés. It’s a peaceful area and those of you who like your breaks full of rural hikes will be happy to find that there’s great access to local footpaths, many of which can be reached straight from the farm gates. If you need a light bite before you set off down yonder, a small pop-up café just next to the site is open on weekends for snacks.

The amenities here are simple, with just portaloo toilets available, but self-sustaining guests are welcome to set up campfires and barbecues. Please note that Castleton Campsite does not have running water. Castleton Camping also embraces well-behaved dogs but asks that they are kept on a lead at all times when around the site.

Great location and views, basic but clean site with friendly owner.03/09/2022

    Great location, lots of space and basic but very clean loo facilities. Although it was just me and the hound in the campervan I could take as much space as I wanted for our pitch, so he could have a good mooch about on his tether whilst I was sat out admiring the great ridge and views around us (over a beer).
    Although some of the land slopes (it's a farm on the bottom edge of a ridge) there's enough space in the field/s to find somewhere level if you don't have van / caravan level-ps / chocks (which I did in any case).

    Really great location - amazing views of Mam Tor and a quick walk into Castleton for a range of pubs and cafes. Able to join footpaths from the campsite without driving which is ideal, but also close to the start of the Pennine Way!

    Lots of space on the pitches and total free reign on where you can pitch which was great. Friendly team running it!

    Disliked: 

    Towards the end of each day the toilets were slightly unclean and out of toilet roll.

Local attractions

With lots of historic sites to see, landscapes to hike and caverns to descend into, the first bit is deciding where to start. For days hiking, the Pennine Way starts in Edale (15 minutes’ drive) and heads out onto moors, past reservoirs and gritstone edges. A hike with a view is certain at Ladybower Reservoir (15 minutes) too.

Five miles through Cave Dale (30 minutes' walk), a limestone valley, is just as splendid. Places you might want to visit on the way include Castleton village and Peveril Castle - and there are views towards Mam Tor and The Great Ridge too.

Caverns on your ‘to-explore’ list? Take an underground boat trip in Speedwell Cavern (35 minutes), investigate the Blue John stone in Treak Cliff Cavern (five minutes' drive) or learn rope-making in Peak Cavern (25 minutes' walk).

When it’s time to extend your learning to history in the Peak District, Peveril Castle (25 minutes) above Castleton village is one the closest ruins. For somewhere that has survived the test of time, and now makes a rather excellent picnicking location, is Chatsworth House (30 minutes' drive). The estate also has a farmyard and playground.

Must see

  • Lyme Park & Gardens (NT) (11.0 miles)
  • Chatsworth (11.7 miles)
  • Haddon Hall (12.1 miles)

  • Lyme Park (10.9 miles)
