Burrs Manor Wild Camping: Views across open fields

General

  • Peaceful wild camping at a farmland site in the Peak District
  • A 15-minute drive from the towns of Buxton and Bakewell
  • Less than an hour from Alton Towers theme park; near the Monsal Trail

Relaxing among green fields, trekking through the hills of the Peak District and settling down of an evening in a traditional village pub… If that sounds like your dream getaway then Burrs Manor Wild Camping, a mile from the village of Chelmorton in the Peak District, should be the very spot for you.

The site is in a top spot for walking and cycling getaways, close to many of the waymarked trails crisscrossing the Peak District. The site is three miles from the start of the Monsal Trail, where you can hire bikes or explore the former railway line on foot or horseback, and less than 10 minutes’ drive from the starts of the High Peak Trail and the Tissington Trail.

You can stay active on site with a game of footgolf (book in advance) or just idle around in the peace and quiet of the countryside farmland, taking in the view over the farmhouse towards the peaks.

To unwind in the evenings, head to the traditional village pub in nearby Chelmorton, a 25-minute walk away, to have a bite to eat and knock one back in the beer garden. If you’d prefer to handle all the cooking yourself, barbecues are welcome on site and the towns of Buxton and Bakewell are nearby when you need to stock up on supplies.

    The wild scenery

    Disliked: 

    The fact there were 3 large groups of young people who were obviously only there to get drunk and play music. Despite there being a sign, all be it small, saying no music after 10.00 it continued until quite late.
    Toilet and showers were basic but adequate.

    Site was exactly as described - very basic facilities but ideal if all you wanted was to pitch a tent and use the toilet/shower.

    Site was busy-ish but never had any need to queue and atmosphere was good but never noisy.

    The bell tent was very spacious and, whilst only sparsely furnished, had enough little comforts to be able to relax. It was ideal for the younger members of our group.

    Nice and quiet location, with plenty of space to pitch. Facilities are clean and enough for a few nights' stay. Not far from Buxton and the Monsal Trail so if you come by car or bike, there's something not far for you.

Local attractions

There’s lots more to do in the Peak District National Park than follow trails: abseil from the viaduct at Millers Dale, explore the spectacular dams of Derwent Valley or dive below ground at Blue John Cavern – all less than an hour from Burrs Manor.

The nearby towns of Buxton and Bakewell are must-visit spots too: in Buxton, go below the earth’s surface once more at Poole’s Cavern, stand under the stunning Devonshire dome, or stroll through the Pavilion Gardens. And in Bakewell? There’s plenty to see and do here too, but the one thing you must try is a Bakewell pudding...

Plenty of old houses are in the area for historic and cultural days too: Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Tissington Hall are each less than 30 minutes from Burrs Manor, and The Old Manor, White Peak Estate, Little Moreton Hall, Kedleston Hall and Sudbury Hall are all within an hour’s drive.

Too sedate? A more high-octane experience awaits on the rides at Alton Towers theme park, a 50-minute drive from Burrs Manor. For something that falls somewhere in the middle, try a treetop adventure full of zip lines and rope courses at Go Ape, 15 minutes from the site.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (12.9 kilometres)
  • Chatsworth (15.1 kilometres)
  • Lyme Park & Gardens (NT) (18.1 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (17.1 kilometres)
