Alan Rogers Review of Swallow Holme Camping & Caravan Park
Swallowholme Camping and Caravan Park is 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 reasonably flat site has 45 grass pitches or hardstanding pitches with electric hook-up points available for motorhomes and caravans. The site does not have a children's play area and, due to the small size of the site, bike riding and ball games are not permitted. However there is a recreation ground and children s play area in the village, not far from the site.
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. Stanage Edge is not far away - a magnet for rock climbers. The Ladybower Reservoir is a pleasant walk from the site, mainly off-road following the Thornhill Trail.
