General

  • Small rural campsite & working farm in the heart the of peak district
  • Many activities and attractions nearby
  • A short walk from the Monsal Trail and various local pubs

Right in the heart of the Peak District National Park, Dale Farm Rural Campsite near Bakewell is a quiet countryside place for those who like quiet countryside camping.

And for those who like cycling too, as you'll find the Monsal Trail a short pedal away from your peaceful pitch, eight and a half miles of traffic-free trail passing Bakewell on its route from Topley Pike to Darley Dale. And hiking: the Monsal Trail is a hoot on foot too and as it's the Peak District, many more miles can be found to pound nearby. (And for those who like trad country pubs: three are within a mile of the farm.)

Dale Farm Rural Campsite is on a working farm and has a loo block with washing-up area, and a small shop selling produce and award-winning baking from the farm.

    Terraced pitches with lovely views
    Beautiful village
    Excellent access to the Monsal Trail for walking or cycling

    Disliked: 

    Intermittent power supply - Electric hook up for our Motorhome kept failing, however, it was rectified fairly quickly & without fuss.
    Washing/Shower Facilities were fairly basic, but I understand that a new shower block is being built in the near future...

    The location was superb, walking, pubs, Monsal Trail, Monsal Head. Gorgeous field of Highland Cattle to admire. Lots of effort put into this small campsite and very tidy for a working farm.

    Disliked: 

    It felt a little bit like self service but it is a busy farm. On arrival we found someone to answer our query and they were very helpful. Unless you pay for WiFi it’s not great, phone signal great tho.

Local attractions

Pretty much all whims are whetted in the Peak District, whether you're into outdoor photography, climbing, caving, mountain biking, hiking, rambling, sightseeing or shopping for Peak District produce and souvenirs.

Monsal Head of Monsale Dale is on the Monsale Trail and less than a mile away from Dale Farm Rural Campsite. It's one of the top spots in the region for stopping and taking pics of the River Wye, its dale and the utterly gorge Headstone Viaduct, so prepare to spend some time gazing around.

A few miles from base, the sweet town of Bakewell is another highly popular Peak District stop and is the only market town in the national park.

Also a few miles away, Chatsworth House is yet another much-visited Peak highlight and has been voted several times as Britain's fave country house. Austen fan? This is the house Elizabeth visited in Pride and Prejudice and it was used as Pemberley in the BBC's 2005 adaptation. Yes, that one, with Colin Firth, in the lake…
