I want to head up to Manchester over the hols and suggested to dh that we do this as our still-unplanned-family-shortbreak-camping-test-trip. We don't need to stay in Manchester itself but would like a recommendation of a site which we can easily get there for a day from. I don't seem to be having much luck with UKcampsites.

are there any suggestions for camping in / around / near Manchester?

try near peak district: buxton, hayfield, whaley bridge - always used to be lots of campsites near there and about 45 mins drive away... no specific advice though sorry

these are all in the area too, esp Stockport ones. Not sure if they are all for tents tho hmm
One we have been to is the Camping and Caravanning club site at Delamere which is lovely.

thanks so much for your help GW... I'll have a good look through these sites in the morning. Do you know this one? Is it handy to Manchester?

We are also members of the caravan club and as a rule their sites are lovely - been to lots over 30yrs <sounds old now> They don't usually take tents though (are you tin-tenting then?)
Haven't been to that one but parents have, they went to catch up with friends. <think it was that one>
Yes handy for Manchester on Metrolink - sounds great!
