Crowden Camping & Caravanning Club site enjoys a remote location at the Northern end of the Peak District National Park. The area is a Mecca for walker’s and the site reflects this. From the site, walkers can take a gentle stroll along footpaths or stride out on a stretch of the long-distance Pennine Way. The stunning Chatsworth House and Chatsworth Farmyard and Adventure Playground near Bakewell are a great family day out. Just north of here is the famous plague village of Eyam. Eyam Moor above the village is great for walking. There are more wide-open space and romantic landscapes to enjoy at the National Trust’s Marsden Moor Estate north of Crowden site. The site has 45 grass or hardstanding pitches (some seasonal), most with an electric hook-up point.
Non-members are welcome and may join on-site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
There are plenty of places to visit from the site. Howden and Ladybower Reservoirs, south-east of the site are where the Dam Busters was filmed. Or head north to Holmfirth, the town known as the location for the TV series Last of the Summer Wine, which looks out over the Holme Valley. Leave the peace and quiet behind and in an hour’s drive, you can enjoy the shopping and entertainment options of Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield. If you are backpacking along the Pennine Way, and arriving on foot carrying equipment, the site will always find a way to pitch you for the night.
