Local Information


Our campsite is in the Peak District sited very close to Chinley and Chapel-en-le-Frith. With easy access to Buxworth Basin and Whaley Bridge along the route of the historic Peak Forest Tramway which then joins up to the Peak Forest Canal.

The Pennine Bridleway  runs close to our campsite and there are a number of other bridleways within easy cycling distance.

If you’d like to head underground, that’s easily done with a tour of Pooles Cavern in Buxton or a trip to Castleton to explore Blue John Cavern and a boat ride underground at Speedwell Cavern. For the more adventurous Peak Instruction offer a range of guided outdoor pursuits.

Those who watched the British telly adaptation of Pride and Prejudice will recognise the National Trust estate at Lyme (20 minutes) – its exterior was used as the body double for Pemberley, and both house and gardens make for fine wandering (even if the lake doesn’t yield a dripping Mr Darcy…).

There are hundreds of footpaths in the area including walks to the three Hills you can see from the campsite Eccles Pike, South Head and Craken Edge. We also have a number of walking guides available for you to use during your stay.

Chinley train station offers good links with Sheffield, Manchester  and the Hope Valley Line.

Chinley has a Post Office/Cheese Shop, General Store, news agents, launderette, Pharmacy, Butchers, Tea Room, Green Lane Social,  and a few pubs  in and close by (see below) as well as a Fish and Chip shop and Indian eat in or take away

There are a number of good pubs in the area within 30 mins walk of the campsite
