Got the travel bug for country walks, caverns and granite tors? Rowter Farm Campsite might be the place for you. This site belongs to a working hill farm in a peaceful plot of land at the top of Winnats Pass in Castleton, so caves and country walks are practically in its backyard (within walking distance, Mam Tor and multiple caverns are open for exploration).
Castleton village, five minutes’ drive away, has all the flavour of a classic Peak District village, including Peveril Castle, gift shops and pubs. For more local flavour, the site’s farmhouse sells essentials including eggs and milk. Whenever you want to warm the milk for breakfast or fry a couple of eggs sunny side up, firepits and barbecues are allowed (only if they're raised off-ground, though).
Mountain biking and walking are all ways to conquer your new territory and handily, Rowter Farm Campsite is central to some pretty terrains, including Edale (15 minutes’ drive away) and the start of the Pennine Way, with other walks including the Kinder Scout and Jacob’s Ladder as extra spouts.
As well as the handsome views up towards Mam Tor on site, the two-acre field has plenty of space for your family’s game of choice. Well-behaved dogs are welcome here and there’s strictly no noise after 10pm for everyone to get in their sleep. Please note that visitors are not allowed on site.
Clean and basic sums up the facilities here, which include male and female toilets, showers (it’s one pound for a three-minute shower), dishwashing facilities, a fridge-freezer and plug sockets for charging phones or drying hair.

Fancy yourself as a lord or lady of the manor? The stately home and estate at Chatsworth House (35 minutes) might be the closest you’ll get. With a 105-acre garden, trout stream and nine rooms with painted ceilings, picnics are quite grand here, as is the scenery for your afternoon stroll or kitchen tour.
You’ll certainly feel above everyone else, in the literal sense of the phrase, at Bamford Edge (20 minutes). There’s an uphill hike to this lookout over Ladybower Reservoir… pretty much primed for a photo opportunity, right? Further north, Derwent Reservoir (half an hour) has a fabric of walking and cycling routes plus fishing spots along the water, with bicycle hire available for those of you who don’t have your own pair of wheels.
But what about the underground? Well, before you go down under into Castleton’s caverns, you’ll want to conquer Mam Tor (20 minutes' walk) first. It’s in the same area as the Blue John Cavern (25 minutes' walk/five minutes' drive), Speedwell Cavern (35 minutes' walk/five minutes' drive) and Treak Cliff Cavern (55 minutes' walk/10 minutes' drive), where there's everything from an 18th-century lead mine to musical events and rope-making works.
