- Friendly smallholding in peaceful hillside location with valley views
- Minutes away from moorland walks on the Lancs/W Yorks border
- Country pub a few minutes' walk away
Under new management from summer 2017, this is back to basics camping with spectacular views, over a valley in a peaceful area on the Bacup hillside, on a quiet private lane, and minutes away from scenic walks on the hilly moorland of the Lancashire/West Yorkshire border.
The site has a three-acre camping field, a large car park and spring water (unsuitable for drinking but fine for animals and washing). Please note that there's only a compost toilet and a washing-up area: The White Stables doesn't have a shower (but does have washing facilities). Visitors are welcome to bring their own portable showers; please also bring your own drinking water. An Elsan point is on site.
And as for tipples? A traditional country pub is only a few minutes' walk away.
The site was taken over by new management in 2017, who are keeping the original approach of providing excellent customer service in a spectacularly set location.
Find nearby sites with availability…
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.

The White Stables is on the hillside of Bacup, on the Lancashire/West Yorkshire border, and close to the spectacular (hilly, moorland and more) walks you'd expect in this part of the world. For a hearty six-mile hike, take the circular route out of Bacup towards Todmorden and Yorkshire, following the Rossendale Way for a part and passing a sculpture on the Irwell Sculpture Trail on its way back into town.
Exploring by car, the site is ten minutes' drive from the market town of Todmorden, a place popular with outdoor sorts for its nearby mountain biking and fell running as well as for its walking: Todmorden is set along the Pennine Way, the Pennine Bridleway, the Mary Towneley Loop and the Calderdale Way. A small toy museum, theatre and tourist info centre are in town along with pubs, cafés, restaurants and independent shops.
Within 20 minutes' drive is Hebden Bridge; if you want a city day out, Halifax is eight miles from there and Manchester 17 miles from Todmorden.
