Things to do

The campervan site adjoins the North end of the 17 mile long High Peak trail, starting at Dowlow near Buxton, to High Peak Junction, Cromford. The trail is well-used by cyclists, walkers and horse riders. You can experience life in a Victorian Mill worker dwelling at The Bakewell Old House Museum just a 15-minute drive from the campsite. Or for the more adventurous, Poole’s Cavern and Country Park is a short 10-minute drive; take a journey beneath the earth to explore Limestone caverns, and see how crystal Stalactites and Stalagmites have lined the chambers over millions of years.
