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.

  • Liked: 

    Everything about the tent it was beautifully decorated cosy and comfortable. We loved the log fire it heated the whole tent. It was great waking up to the sounds of sheep and lambs in the morning.

    Disliked: 

    The morning trip down to the washroom and queuing for the shower.

Cracking part of the Peak District and perfect for exploring 19/06/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom David S. Confirmed

  • Hillside non-electric grass tent or campervan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Amazing location and the site was perfect. It was the first time taking our 2 year old son camping and he has loved every minute of it. Our hosts were fantastic, always there if you needed them and not over the top or intrusive. The working farm was a great place with many old tractors on site that provided great entertainment for our son. Waking up to the noise of the lambs was ace!!

    Disliked: 

    Not so much of a dislike but the toilet facilities needed updating and more space especially with a young one. I think the owner did say they had planned for further development in this area.

    Great, level and large, pitch. Very quiet site. Short walk to local pubs. Lovely to see the farm animals.

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…
