Riverside site in grounds of a 17th-century house in Nottinghamshire Close to Sherwood Forest and 25 miles from Nottingham Cave bar on site open on Bank Holidays You'll sense the history all around you at The Old Vicarage, from the old house to the remains of the water mill in the river bed. Stays here are in the grounds of a 17th-century house in the village of Elkesley, six miles from Worksop and 25 miles from Nottingham. Its grounds run down to the banks of the Poulter river, and are lined with stands of acacia, sycamore, ash and oak trees which were originally donated to the first vicar by the Duke of Newcastle in the 1830s. There's plenty of space around the site for traditional outdoor activities, with a rope swing and stepping stones over the shallow river and a bridge that's perfect for playing Pooh Sticks. In the surrounding area there are animal parks and nature reserves to walk around, or to head back further in time, you could take one of the trails through ancient Sherwood Forest, around quarter of an hour's drive away.

Glamping near Bakewell with wifi provided guide

Overview

If you’re planning a holiday in the Peak District, Bakewell is a great place to consider as a base. As the only town in the national park, it’s a hub of independent shops and eateries where you can stock up on camping supplies and refuel with a sticky Bakewell pudding. But just because it’s the busiest part of the Peak District, doesn’t mean it’s any less picturesque. Situated on the banks of the River Wye, its stone buildings, medieval arched bridge, and weekly market will have you reaching for the camera. Campsites in Bakewell and the surrounding countryside also put you within easy reach of one of the Peak District’s most-visited attractions, Chatsworth House, seat of the Duke of Devonshire. Of course, the best attraction of all is the stunning countryside that surrounds nearly all campsites. Campers can find lots of great places to stay, from simple stone-walled meadow camping sites to modern, luxury glamping sites.

Things to do near Bakewell

  • Bakewell itself has a Monday market, a small museum, and pleasant walking by the River Wye. It’s almost gone without saying that during any Bakewell camping holiday, you really ought to make a trip to the local bakery to try the town’s most famous export, its self-named pudding.
  • With its magnificent house, gardens, and farm, the Chatsworth Estate is within five miles of Bakewell. Medieval Haddon Hall is even closer and open to the public in summer.
  • Exploring the Peak District beyond the town is easy with almost unlimited opportunities for walking and cycling on open-access land and footpaths. The Monsal Trail, a former railway line, offers a family-friendly and traffic-free route for walkers, cyclists, and horse riders.
  • Farther afield, head south for riverside walks from Dovedale or north to climb up Mam Tor and Stanage Edge.
  • Explore pretty villages in the Hope Valley, then head underground into caves and caverns to explore the area’s geology from beneath the peaks.
  • A 10-minute walk from Bakewell takes you to the Thornbridge Brewery’s taproom and brewery tours.

Where to go

Peak District National Park

Bakewell is in the Derbyshire Dales region of the Peak District National Park, which is characterised by its high moorland plateaus, steep limestone valleys, and cliffy outcrops, as well as relatively high peaks. Wild camping isn’t allowed in the park, as landowner permission is required, but campers can stay in formal campsites and caravan parks throughout the park.

Sherwood Forest

A rocky outcrop south of Bakewell, Robin Hood’s Stride makes a nod to the legend, but campers interested in Robin Hood should head east to Sherwood Forest. The royal forest is inextricably linked with the Robin Hood story in addition to offering excellent walking trails and ancient oak trees. Visit on a day trip from Bakewell or find a campsite or caravan park on the edge of Nottingham city.

Cannock Chase AONB

South of Bakewell and between the towns of Cannock and Stafford in Staffordshire, the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is a lovely area of woodlands, forests, canals, and rivers, plus some fascinating history, too, as it was the hunting forest of William the Conqueror almost 1,000 years ago. Visit on a day trip from Bakewell or stay at a caravan park around Cannock or Stafford to walk, cycle, or ride horses along the Cannock Chase trails.

When to go

Spring and summer are the best times to camp in and around Bakewell and the Peak District. The days are long in midsummer, especially this far north in England, and the weather is most pleasant for camping and outdoor activities. Winters can be cold in the Peak District, and snow isn’t uncommon in the hilly area. Some campsites and caravan parks close for winter, but booking a cabin or cottage may be possible for off-season visits.
