Alan Rogers Review

Swallowholme Camping and Caravan Park is situated in the Hope Valley within the Peak District National Park. On the edge of the village of Bamford, the site is within walking distance of Bamford Station and two garden centres with cafés. Hathersage is only five minutes away by car where there is an outdoor heated swimming pool.

In addition to the seasonal caravan pitches, the fairly flat site has grass pitches or hardstanding pitches with electric hook-up for motorhomes, caravans and tents. As a small site it cannot accommodate large tents in excess of 5m x 3.5m.

Trout and grayling fishing is permitted (licence required) in the River Derwent which runs past the site. Swallowholme is a great site to use as a walking base and see plenty of wildlife and many species of wild birds around.
