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.

Caravan campsites near Blackpool with campfires guide

Overview

Well-known for its Pleasure Beach Amusement Arcade and sky-high rollercoasters; the Blackpool Tower with views over the Irish Sea; and a stretch of sandy seafront with no fewer than three piers, Blackpool is a retro coastal destination in northwest England with proximity to three national parks. Stroll along the pedestrian promenade (known as the Golden Mile), enjoy the high ropes of Stanley Park, and take to the water at the indoor Sandcastle Waterpark before venturing further afield for a camping getaway. Campers aren’t short on options, from kitschy holiday villages and caravan parks to glamping yurts and back-to-basics campsites.

Where to go

Peak District National Park

Stargaze, hike, mountain bike, horseback ride, and go sailing in the Peak District National Park, an International Dark Sky Reserve mostly situated in Derbyshire. Just an hour and a half outside of Blackpool, the Peak District is home to rolling hills, quintessential English countryside, and former spa towns like Bakewell and Buxton. Pitch your tent at moorside campsites, luxe glamping grounds, or rent a caravan to enjoy the full-service amenities of a holiday park.

Yorkshire Dales National Park

Bordered by no fewer than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty—the Forest of Bowland, Nidderdale, and the North Pennines—the Yorkshire Dales National Park is a fantastic destination for outdoor adventurers. Lay your head in luxe glamping pods, caravan parks, or back-to-basics campsites before visiting popular villages like Hawes, walking the Pennine Way, and geocaching, biking, or horseback riding your way through this rugged, heather-clad International Dark Sky Reserve.

Lake District National Park

There are few better places in Cumbria to take to the water, try long-distance walks, and camp, caravan, or glamp than the popular Lake District National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage site, once a key inspiration for Romantic poets, is located just an hour outside of Blackpool and is best-known for sailing, kayaking, open water swimming, and kayaking, as well as the towering (but climbable) Scafell Peak. You can also take it easy in laid-back towns like Keswick, Kendal, and Ambleside.

When to go

For beach days and ice creams, the best time to visit Blackpool is during the sunny summer months of June to September; however, this is also peak season. To enjoy the annual Blackpool Illuminations spectacular, visit between August and October, the ideal time for roasted chestnuts and hot sugared doughnuts. Spring is also a lovely season in Blackpool, although you should prepare for rain year-round in this coastal destination.

Know before you go

  • Blackpool is well connected by road and rail to other parts of the UK, including Preston, Manchester, and York.
  • It’s worth trying to catch a ride on one of the antique trams that operate the length of the Blackpool Tramway.
  • Blackpool is a popular hen and stag party destination, and, while generally family-friendly, the area can get especially rowdy on weekends and bank holidays. Take this into consideration when planning your trip.
  • There are plenty of camping and outdoor supply stores in bustling Blackpool.
