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 near Malham guide

Overview

Within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Malham is a small North Yorkshire village surrounded by natural beauty. It’s an ideal base for exploring the park because it’s right in the middle of it—you don’t have to drive anywhere unless you want to. Highlights of Malham include the curved rock amphitheatre of Malham Cove, the gorge and waterfalls at Gordale Scar, and Malham Tarn, above the village. There’s one campsite in the village itself—a family-run site beside the Malham Beck River—and other sites dotted around the national park. From basic camping to luxury glamping where you stay in a kitted-out bell tent, insulated pod, or shepherd's hut, we've found the camping sites where you can make the most of your time near Malham.

Where to go

Yorkshire Dales National Park

Malham is located within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, one of Yorkshire’s most impressive natural areas. A benefit of camping in Malham is that you can explore some of the most beautiful spots in the whole national park on foot: Janet’s Foss Waterfall, Malham Cove, Malham Tarn, and Gordale Scar. As hiking is one of the highlights of the Yorkshire Dales, Malham is an especially good base.

Nidderdale AONB

East of Malham and connected to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Nidderdale AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is a continuation of the beautiful landscape of moorlands, valleys, flower-covered woodlands, and rolling farmland. Campers staying in or near Malham can visit on day trips for birdwatching, wildlife-spotting, and walking adventures. There are also more camping options around the AONB, especially on farmland.

Forest of Bowland AONB

West of Malham and crossing the border between Yorkshire and Lancashire, the Forest of Bowland AONB is a landscape of moorland and peat bogs, and some pockets of ancient woodlands. People come here to walk and cycle, as well as to shoot grouse between August and December. There are camping and caravan sites around the AONB and while wild camping is not generally permitted, there are some areas where this is sometimes possible.

When to go

Malham is in North Yorkshire, which experiences a generally cool climate, with wind and rain common, especially in the hilly dales. Tent and caravan camping will be most comfortable in the summer. If you’re visiting outside of summer, dress appropriately to enjoy the outdoor attractions and consider opting for a glampsite or cottage in a nearby town or village rather than camping in a tent.
