Pitches with a view

General

  • Spacious family site on the edge of the Peak District National Park
  • Chatsworth House gardens, petting zoo and more 20 minutes' drive away
  • Two pub restaurants a short walk from the site

Want peace in the Peaks and high-octane activities in the hills? Country house grandeur and granite crags? City galleries and a slice of solitude? Cram all that in with a stay at Moorhay Farm Caravan and Camping Park, a quiet site on the edge of the Peak District National Park with scenic views over the surrounding countryside.

Climbing and walking trails at Curbar Edge are five miles away; the playground, petting zoo, art collection and gardens of Chatsworth House are 20 minutes by car, and it's around 40 minutes to the mountain bike trails of the Dark Peak Estate or to the vibrant university city of Sheffield.

Pitches are grassy and spacious, and a bridlepath runs behind the farm for horse riding and nature walks. There's a pair of pub restaurants at the bottom of the lane, about 10 minutes' walk away.

Amenities include a bathroom block with toilets, washbasins and hot showers. Barbecues and campfires are allowed.

    Everything about this small, quiet campsite was wonderful. We stayed in one of the tippee tents, with a comfy bed and lovely fairy lights. The toilet and shower facilities were clean, and staff/owner very helpful. They also have firepits and wood so we were able to have a lovely campfire and toasted marshmallows too.

    We will definitely be booking again!

Nice small site with basic facilities09/27/2020

  • Liked: 

    Having an allocated pitch. Nice views. Excellent pub within walking distance. Good walks.
    Basic facilities but instant hot water.
    Small site and clean and tidy.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch uneven and on slight slope.
    Not a fault of the campsite but clay pigeon shooting started early Sunday morning and we weren’t able to do a walk due to red flags in areas on the public footpath. Also after a while our dog didn’t like it.

Local attractions

A 10-minute drive from the site, Curbar Edge is a top pick for outdoor days: walkers often take the circular route from Curbar Gap over the high ridges of Curbar and Froggatt Pinnacle before descending to the Derwent Valley: a six and a half-mile trek that pleasingly ends at the pub. Rock climbers, meanwhile, can tackle Curbar Edge's 200-odd paths.

For easier ambles at ground level it's a 15-minute drive to the Linacre reservoirs, an area of woods and lakes covered in paths and inviting picnic spots. Castleton, half an hour away, is the hub for some of the Peak's best-known trails and attractions, like the Blue John Caverns and the ascent of Mam Tor.

If poking round other people's houses appeals, it's 20 minutes to 16th-century Chatsworth House, with a massive art collection, grand gardens, petting zoo and playground, and half an hour to its smaller medieval counterpart Haddon Hall.

If you're heading that way it'd be a crime to miss out the pretty market town of Bakewell (20 minutes) on the River Wye: the Monday markets draw the crowds, and you can always escape them afterwards to the peace of the Monsal Trail, a former railway line now giving hikers, bikers and horse riders some of the best views around.

For more pulse-racing kinds of pedalling it's 40 minutes to the Dark Peaks Estate and its array of mountain biking trails. If you fancy a city fix after all that fresh air, it's the same distance to Sheffield for its Millennium Gallery, Metalwork Museum and Ale Trail.

Must see

  • Chatsworth (6.4 kilometres)
  • Haddon Hall (10.1 kilometres)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (15.1 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (13.8 kilometres)
  • Hardwick Estate: Stainsby Mill (17.4 kilometres)
