Camping in the Peak District: smashing stays in the UK’s first-ever national park

Like voyaging through varied landscapes? You’ll love camping in the Peak District. This national park is spread across all sorts of scenery, from highlands to lowlands, and covers many of the best bits of five counties (mainly Derbyshire, but also Cheshire, Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Staffordshire).

Split into the Dark Peak area – more of a gritstone-dotted moorland – and the White Peak, which is characterised by its limestone cragginess, it’s seriously diverse.

As well as being the UK’s first ever national park, the Peak District is where you’ll find the UK’s inaugural long-distance walking path (The Pennine Way), not to mention a clutch of cracking caves.

Whether you’re planning subterranean adventures or want to stay firmly above ground, find the best campsites in the Peak District for bedding down post-adventure with the help of this handy guide.

Places to camp in the Peak District: the key areas

Escape to Edale and embark on a long-distance walking hol – The Pennine Way kicks off from a pub here. The Cheshire Peak part of the national park, meanwhile, is brill as a base for deer-spotting in grand gardens and checking out stately mansions like Chatsworth House.

Ashbourne is also ace – this is a stellar settlement for browsing antiques, ogling handsome buildings and attending a two-day football game that’s been a much-loved annual event since the Middle Ages.

Camping in the Peak District is also fab if finding fancy food is vital when you’re on a hol. Bakewell – yep, the town that masterminded the pudding of the same name – is in this national park and is part of a Cake Trail you could pootle along while picking up some of the region’s best produce.

Forage for first-rate fare in Knutsford and Alderley Edge as well; the latter village is referred to as the champagne capital of Britain, so it’s not just grub on the menu, and Buxton – of bottled water fame – is a spa town worth winging your way towards for its bistros and tearooms.

Camping in the Peak District: from top tent pitches to gorgeous glampsites

Want more than just a place to pop your tent? No problem – there are campsites in the Peak District with their own mini breweries, fishing lakes, heated pools, bird hides, live entertainment and adventure playgrounds.

When you’re after something more low-key, scour Pitchup for camping sites in the Peak District surrounded by fields and woods or near horse-riding centres for kicking off cantering tours across the countryside.

It’s not legal to go wild camping in the Peak District, so savvy travellers embrace the next best thing by choosing a budget or farm park. These usually have toilets, showers and not much else but big open skies overhead – although some also sell fresh produce on site for grilling up on the fire.

More of a fancy camper? Glamping in the Peak District is ideal for a posher trip. Browse high-end lodges, converted barns and cosy camping pods for romantic weekends away, as well as spacious glamping options to fit in all your family and friends.

Other excellent options for small groups include static caravan sites in the Peak District. As they tend to come with kitchens or kitchenettes and cooking utensils, these are your go-tos for self-catering stays in the national park. They also have private bathrooms – so there’s no need to share with strangers – and living spaces for evenings playing card games with your crew.

Whether you’re going tent camping, want somewhere to park the motorhome or are after touring caravan sites in the Peak District, there are oodles of choices on this page. Simply check boxes in the filter panel to whittle down the options.

Camping sites in the Peak District for hiking, biking and caving

You’ll come across campsites in the Peak District close to biking trails, food-focused villages and adrenaline-boosting leisure opportunities, so that old adage “there’s something for everyone” really does apply when it comes to this national park.

Camping in the Peak District is particularly brill for thrill-seekers. Go climbing on the limestone and gritstone crags or try caving around Castleton (in the Blue John, Treak Cliff and the Peak caverns, or while on a subterranean sailing trip in Speedwell Cavern). At Matlock Bath, take a cable car to the limestone caves before exploring the huge underground network that makes up Poole’s Cavern near Buxton and you’ll soon see why the whole area is so sought after by spelunkers.

Seeking slower pursuits? Cycle along the Tissington Trail, which starts in Ashbourne and runs towards Parsley Hay, or paddleboard on some of the many rivers and lakes criss-crossing the national park. Dovedale, Derwentwater and Mermaid’s Pool are a few of the best spots for wild swimming (as well as other aquatic antics).

Got the kids with you? Families could easily combine a countryside trip camping in the Peak District with adventures in Alton Towers, just across the Staffordshire border.
