Are you walking?

We are off to Hayfield next weekend...never been before but heard very good things about it. It's good for walking...stunning scenery around castleton.It's near us...so a handy weekender.

Fieldhead campsite ...at Edale?. Looks lovely too...(going to try out this one too soon!) You have to park your car away from your tent in a car park there.

Both of those are good scenery/walking bases i think.

It's Callow Top - went there a few years ago was quite nice.

I thought it was a bit - MrsJamesMartin might have another view on it.

I like the Callow Top at ashbourne too, and no not clubsy - in fact the description is pretty much one I would normally avoid but it's a lovely site and a beautiful area. Great for cycling too.

Would second Upper Booth Farm - we went over half term and it was fab. We are only an hour from Derbyshire and I can't believe we have never been before!

Upper Booth was just so quiet and in the most beautiful area. Very basic facilities but still a shower and sink!

North Lees campsite near Hathersage. I go there all the time and camped there last weekend.

Our car broke down just as we arrived on friday and we decided to stay anyway and still did everything, village pub is walkable distance, we spend most of our time climbing on stanage edge.

It's a great campsite if you like things really basic.

<waves back at Sal> grin

Can't wait to go, hope we get 2 pitches Ok?

Rivendale campsite. Has an onsite little pub, not at all clubhousy. It is across the (admittedly quite busy)road from the tissington trail, so walking/cycling on the doorstep. The pitches are lovely, and the showers etc are amongst the best I've seen anywhere.

Haven't been personally (heavily pregnant at the moment) but the lady who does reflexology on me recommends this site which is in Ripley.
