Rural views all round

General

  • Peaceful family-friendly site with views over Lathkill Dale
  • A 10-minute drive from the tearooms of Bakewell
  • Easy access to walking routes through the Peak District National Park

Take a peek at the fab Peak District views from the pitches at Mandale Campsite… whichever spot you pick as your territory, the outlook over the national park is painted in various shades of rural green – all fields, woods and perhaps the occasional farm. And just beyond the site’s fences is gorgeous Lathkill Dale, a fave spot for for hikers and birdwatchers.

Peace, quiet and open air are in ample supply here – with heaps of space in the fields there’s no need to be living cheek by jowl with your neighbours. Passing school groups of Duke of Edinburgh’s expeditions are welcomed and housed in a separate field to avoid any friction between teenage antics and chilled family soirées.

This is a particularly tempting location for sweet-toothed visitors, with the nearest town being Bakewell, home to famed desserts: debate continues among local and visitors as to which is the most scrumptious between Bakewell tart and Bakewell pudding, so clearly the only solution is for the individual to conduct their own scientific test by sampling both. The town’s tearooms can provide you with excellent examples, and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants around too.

Feeding options closer to home include the country pubs in Over Haddon and Monyash, each less than a 10-minute drive away (there’s a little play area in Monyash too, if you’ve got energetic kids in tow). If the desire to create fire grabs you, you’re also welcome to light up a disposable barbie to grill a few bangers.

Please note

A charge of £1,00 (R23,34) applies for the use of the shower.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

    Open field with choice off pitches. We parked next to a boundary hedge which acted as a wind break. Very pleasant views and spotless toilets and shower block. The owners gave a warm welcome and we will definitely be returning.

    Disliked: 

    Quite a long walk to the nearest pub , about 20 mins at our pace.

    Disliked: 

    Paying for showers and hot water in the washing up area, but also that the hot water took time to warm up - so the first minute (20p) of your shower is waiting for water. Not the end of the world but something to bear in mind!

    Lovely location with rolling hills and choice of two fields to pitch our tent.
    Very friendly helpful owners. Complies with all covid rules and the amenities were cleaned twice a day and very clean even after rain. I would like to stay again in the future and will recommend the site to my camping friends. Close to a beautiful 5 mile picturesque walk down Lathkill Dale and Overhadden.

Directions

Local attractions

Eating as much Bakewell pudding as you like is perfectly acceptable because of the abundance of hiking trails on which to burn off the calories (that’s your excuse and you’re sticking to it). The limestone valley of Lathkill Dale, just outside the site, is a very fine place for a walk and has some excellent birdwatching to be done along the way.

Further walks await all over the Peak District National Park for all abilities. The relatively gentle paths of Mam Tor and the Ladybower Reservoir are about 40 minutes’ drive away; keen hikers in search of a challenge should aim for Kinder Scout, 50 minutes’ drive away, to climb up to the highest point in the park. A popular option for families (on foot or by bike) is the Monsal Trail (20 minutes' drive), meandering through nature reserves and underground tunnels to finish near Bakewell (for a restorative pudding perchance?).

For a spot of history (or to shelter on a damp day), head to Chatsworth, a splendid estate on the banks of the Derwent river half an hour away.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (4.5 kilometres)
  • Chatsworth (7.8 kilometres)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (14.3 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (8.4 kilometres)
  • The Old Manor (25.0 kilometres)
