The Devonshire Arms: Just behind the village inn

General

  • Simple Peak District pitches behind a 16th-century village pub
  • A 10-minute drive to Castleton's caves and 15 minutes to Buxton
  • Pub open Thursday to Sunday for real ales and home-cooked food

Peak District hike followed by a well-earned pint? Splendid. All of this followed by a short toddle of a couple of minutes to your bed? Even more splendid. Such is the situation at The Devonshire Arms, where pitches have been set up just behind the 16th-century village inn in Peak Forest.

Footpaths lead directly from this site to the Pennine Bridleway for walks and bike rides, with the likes of Mam Tor, Speedwell Cavern and Blue John Cavern all within striking distance. There’s bike hire nearby too if you’re not able to bring your own wheels along.

This is a handy spot from which to explore Derbyshire by car too – it’s just off the A623 so there’s speedy enough access to places like Buxton (15 minutes’ drive) and Bakewell (20 minutes), to places like Chatsworth House or to the more remote corners of the Peak District National Park.

And at the end of the day? It’s back to the pub, where freshly cooked meals can be washed down with well-kept real ales in the cosy bar or out in the beer garden before you stroll back to your pitch. The pub’s dog friendly and open from Thursday to Sunday; on other days, maybe journey into Chapel-en-le-Frith (10 minutes’ drive) for supermarket supplies or takeaways.

This is a small site with simple facilities, but guests can use the free wifi, and the toilets and wash basins in the pub are accessible 24 hours a day.

Please note

This campground has no on-site shower facilities.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the campground/park are unlit.

    Location was great with excellent scenery. Liked we had use of the static caravan for toilets, showers, tea and coffee provided so we’re able to relax in the morning and have a cuppa and a shower. The owner also said if we got cold in the night we could feel free to go in the static and turn the fire on to warm up even though we didn’t need to we appreciated the offer. Food in the pub was also really good.

    Disliked: 

    When we arrived the pub was closed so was unsure how we could check in but not too much of an issue do we waited till pub was open.

Local attractions

Keen to give your boots or bike a workout? You’ve come to the right spot – from the pub it’s an easy jaunt to Mam Tor (10 minutes’ drive), the Monsal Trail (15 minutes) or Stanage Edge (25 minutes). You might like to stop in for a dip at the open-air pool in Hathersage (20 minutes) at the end too.

There are many fine views to see around here – and some equally great sights to be seen below ground if you head to Poole’s Cavern & Buxton Country Park (15 minutes) or up to Castleton (10 minutes) to visit Speedwell Cavern and Blue John Cavern. Back up on the surface, get a hit of history at Eyam (10 minutes), the village that sealed itself off from the world during the Bubonic Plague of 1665.

Away from all the rural attractions, take some town time at the opera house, gallery and museum in Buxton (15 minutes) or fuelling up at the pudding shops of Bakewell (20 minutes). The excellent Chatsworth House (25 minutes) should be on the schedule too, for the farm shop and playground as well as the house and gardens.

Must see

  • Lyme Park & Gardens (NT) (15.3 kilometres)
  • Haddon Hall (16.9 kilometres)
  • Chatsworth (17.3 kilometres)
