- Recommend me: Small camp sites in the Peak District
Can anyone recommend some small camping (tent) sites anywhere in the peak district, for this spring/early summer? Thinking of bike touring.
I am looking for small quiet sites, lots of trees/hedges around type thing, decent shower blocks are very important, but no other on site facilites really needed. No swim pools, bars or kids areas.

There’s the national trust campsite a few miles out of Ambleside on the banks of windermere. It’s very basic and the toilet blocks don;t look much but do have hot running water.Posted 9 years agostumpy01Member
I stayed in this place a couple of times – it’s fairly large, but the caravans are well separated from the tents so it feels fairly small. There’s a fair bit of shelter, although you can be quite close to other tents at busy times. They have a decent shower block and are about 1 mile from Buxton.Posted 9 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Definately Barber Booth or North Lees. Barber Booth is more basic, but feels nice n remote. North Lees ‘off season’ is empty with great shower block etc, but can get really quite busy theses days, and with some noisy buggers. They do also have a wild camp area up behind.
(btw I seem to have stayed on about 90% of Peak campsites over a few years of expeditions with groups…)Posted 9 years ago
