Hayfield Camping & Caravanning Club site sits at the foot of the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park. This is walking country where you can enjoy anything from a gentle stroll to a more challenging climb. If you prefer the former, the village of Hayfield (the backdrop for the BBC’s TV drama The Village) is a 15-minute stream-side stroll from the site. For the latter, a walk-up Lantern Pike rewards you with a 360 vista over seven counties. The walk up Kinder from the west side is one of the classic excursions of the Peak District. The walk starts at Bowden Bridge car park and takes around four-and-a-half hours. The site has 80 pitches, most with an electric hook-up point. Please note that this site accepts all units except caravans. The site has 80 grass or hardstanding pitches, 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.
The surrounding area has many attractions. East of the site at Castleton is Peveril Castle. Make the climb to the hilltop where you will find the Norman fortress, and you will be rewarded with fantastic views across the Hope Valley. Castleton is home to a series of caverns, including the Blue John Cavern, known for its minerals, fossils, stalagmites and stalactites. The Freshfields Donkey Sanctuary, Quarry Bank Mill and Styal Estate in Wilmslow, and Go Ape at Buxton Country Park are other popular local attractions.
