White House Farm Campsite, Wardlow

60 units · Motorhomes, Tents4 acres · Wardlow, England
What a little Derbyshire gem: back to basics Whitehouse Farm Campsite is a simple site 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. 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. Guests are welcome to light up a barbecue or campfire for cookouts and keeping warm; Tideswell’s the place for supermarket supplies, and it’s also handily got a fish and chip shop and a couple of pubs for days when your firelighting skills aren't up to much.

Campsites for hikers in Delamere Forest guide

Overview

Ten miles east of Chester, Cheshire’s largest woodland—2400 acres in extent is among the region’s most popular green escapes. Three long-distance paths traverse this former hunting ground of the Earls of Chester, including the Sandstone Way, which traces Cheshire’s and Shropshire’s undulating sandstone ridges. Cycling, horse-riding, and one of Britain’s biggest treetop rope courses also await campers, as does a convenient visitor centre with a café, information hub, and bike hire point. Look out for campsites near the woodland trail network.

Where to go

Delamere to Sandiway

The village giving its name to Delamere Forest, Delamere is situated just south of the forest and Delamere railway station. The A556 Chester Road, which leads northeast to Sandiway, passes through some fetching tree-fringed lakes where you can swim or try watersports like standup paddleboarding. Walk along the Whitegate Way, a 6-mile former railway line, then style in at an area tent or campervan site.

Marbury Country Park & Around

Gradually reclaiming former industrial land in a woodsy green between Marbury and Northwich are the Northwich Community Woodlands, at the heart of which is the former country estate of Marbury Country Park. Just 10 miles northeast of Delamere, Marbury walking and cycling trails retain a genteel feel—two long-distance footpaths, the Cheshire Ring Canal Walk and the North Cheshire Way, pass through. Head out for boating at Budworth Mere, and pitch a tent at family-run campsites around the region.

Cheshire Ring

A series of six connecting canals (all navigable by narrowboat), the Cheshire Ring shows that this portion of Northwest England retains some simple charm. Circling within six miles of Delamere Forest near Little Leigh and skirting the southern edge of Warrington, Manchester, and Macclesfield, the Cheshire Ring features lots of lovely countryside plus the opportunity to take a week to boat the 97-mile route or walk along the towpath.

Shropshire Union Canal

Eight miles south of Delamere Forest at Tiverton, water lovers can hook up with the Shropshire Union Canal, one of Britain’s most beloved man-made waterways. This connects Merseyside with the Midlands through some bucolic parts of Cheshire, Shropshire, and Staffordshire, as well as several cities like Chester. You can try narrowboating, or cycle or walk along the towpath, then seep out at spots near Tiverton offering tent sites, glamping pods, and vintage caravans.
