Things to do

What a little Derbyshire delight:

All this activity isn’t mandatory, of course – this is an equally fine location for days pottering off to local pubs, pigging out on pudding in Bakewell or taking a leisurely stroll around the Chatsworth Estate, 20 minutes away.

And if even that’s too much, you’d be welcome to spend some time loafing about on site: there’s heaps of space here, and as facilities have been kept quite minimal (just showers and toilets) there should be a good serving of peace and quiet to go with it all. You’re welcome to light up a barbecue or campfire for cookouts and keeping warm; Tideswell’s the place for your supermarket supplies, and it’s also handily got a chippy and a couple of pubs for days when you don’t feel your firelighting skills are up to much.


White House Farm in Wardlow is home to a back-to-basics campsite in a most scenic setting five minutes’ drive from the pretty village of Tideswell.

The site’s central location in the Peak District National Park means it’s a top spot for those who want to ramble or ride bikes – several circular trails leave from Tideswell and the traffic-free Monsal Trail is a five-minute drive away. And there’s plenty more activity if you require it too, as activity centres nearby can sort you out days of horse riding, abseiling, climbing and caving.
