CARAVANNING AND CAMPING IN THE
PEAK DISTRICT AND DERBYSHIRE
The Peak District lies at the southern end of the Pennines. Although it is often said to be in Derbyshire, it must be remembered that large areas are in Staffordshire, Cheshire and South Yorkshire. It is rightly very popular and receives an astonishing 22 million visits each year. Amongst these are visitors who come to caravan and camp in this area of outstanding natural beauty.
For visitors who have never stayed in a caravan or camped in the area, and for those who want to find a new site there are several useful guides, which should quickly enable you to find a suitable location. If you can narrow your search down by deciding if you would like to stay in the more gentle southern part of the Peak District, with its beautiful river valleys, or the more rugged north with its magnificent scenery and wonderful walks.
A good place to start your search for a suitable pitch is to obtain from one of the Peak National Park Information Centres or the Tourist Information Centres listed on this site (see side column) the following guides.
