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.

Camping in North York Moors National Park guide

Overview

From the North Sea cliffs on the park’s east coast to the heather-laden fells inland, the North York Moors are best known for their rich diversity of landscape. Ancient woodlands, man-made structures, and winding rivers add to the region’s outdoor charms, while stargazers may catch a glimpse of the Milky Way, Andromeda, or even the Northern Lights in the park’s famously dark night sky. The park’s vast network of cycling trails and footpaths open up all sorts of avenues for adventure, and a variety of camping and glamping options provide plenty of places to rest weary heads.

Where to go

When to go

Spring has officially sprung in the North York Moors when the curlew arrive to commence their breeding season, and this is also a good time to see lapwings, puffins, and golden plover. In autumn, wildlife watchers should turn their attention from the skies to the sea to spot minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbour porpoises. Winter visitors may have slimmer pickings when it comes to campsites, but the annual Stargazing and Dark Skies Festival makes up for it. It can be easier to snag a spot during the low season of November through to April, though be aware that not all sites operate year-round.

Know before you go

  • There are six Easy Access routes signposted on park maps, ideal for wheelchair users and stroller pushers.
  • National Park Centres can be found in Danby and Sutton Bank.
  • Tourist Information Points are widespread across the park, including in the towns of Whitby, Pickering, and Scarborough.
  • The park manages 10 Pay and Display car parks in larger villages or near major attractions.
  • As with all of the UK’s outdoor attractions, the Countryside Code applies.
  • Campsites on the North York Moors get booked up quickly, especially during school holidays, and walk-ins aren’t always accepted. The coastline is a main draw, so head inland if you’re after last-minute accommodation.
