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 West Midlands guide

Overview

Campsites in the West Midlands and central England are often overlooked in favour of their coastal counterparts, but for those who take the time to explore, camping in the West Midlands and central England is a real joy. Some campsites are situated in woodland, while others occupy unspoiled countryside or large stretches of land in Shropshire, Herefordshire, or Worcestershire. Those searching for a quintessential English landscape will find a variety here in the country's heart: gorgeous green valleys, rushing rivers, and woodlands steeped in legend are all waiting to be discovered. And the best part? You’ll find far fewer crowds than in the UK’s popular headline destinations. Head north to hike the green hills and woodland valleys of the Peak District, check into a campsite with views over the Shropshire Hills, or visit Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon, set amid acres of English countryside. Tent camping is best from late spring to early autumn, but winter walks still draw hikers in the off-season, and many caravan parks stay open year-round.

Where to go

Birmingham & the Black Country

Nicknamed the “Black Country” for its role in the industrial revolution, Birmingham’s sprawling suburbs seem like an unlikely destination for campers. But between the Victorian buildings, historic towns, and heritage museums, you’ll also find grassy parklands and winding canals, along with a good choice of camping sites and caravan parks. Beer lovers will be happy too—the Black Country is renowned for its real ale.

Warwickshire

South of Birmingham, the lush countryside of Warwickshire affords plenty of options for scenic strolls, picnics, and pub lunches looking out along the canal ways. This is Shakespeare Country, so a visit to Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon is a must, followed by a visit to Warwick Castle, where adventurous campers can even enjoy medieval glamping.

Worcestershire

Rolling hills, ancient woodlands, and tree-lined canals blanket the Worcestershire countryside. Stroll the flower gardens at Croome Park, cycle along shady trails in the Wyre Forest, or go hiking in the Malvern Hills, a dramatic nine-mile range of volcanic hills rising from neighbouring meadows. This is where you’ll find some of the region’s best campsites, from spacious caravan parks to glamping in bell tents or luxury pods.

Herefordshire

West of Birmingham, the wild landscapes of Herefordshire stretch to the Welsh border, dotted with castle ruins and rural market towns. Campers love this pastoral paradise’s rich green fields, the famous Hereford cattle, and villages such as Eardisley, Eardisland, and Pembridge. Take to the hills for a hike or bike ride, paddle along the River Wye in a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, or explore in the footsteps of C.S.Lewis in the Golden Valley. To the south, the Wye Valley has camping options by the water, in the hills, or hidden away in the forest.

Shropshire

Sparsely populated Shropshire is the rural arm of the West Midlands, where you can escape the crowds and camp amid miles of open countryside, castles, and pretty villages tucked against the Welsh-English border. Visit the UNESCO-listed Ironbridge Gorge, take a ride on the Severn Valley steam railway, or hike the grassy plateau of Long Mynd, then stay up late to gaze up at the country stars. Ludlow is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading gourmet destinations, though most campers visit Shropshire to explore the Shropshire Hills). Strap up your walking boots and strike out along the Iron Age hill forts evidencing hundreds of years of struggle between the Welsh and English.

5 Great Pubs in the West Midlands

  • If you’re looking for a Shropshire pub with an idyllic location, The Bridges (01588 650260) is hard to beat. Set at the foot two rivers, this family-run pub uses local ingredients and serves food all day, every day. In winter, the log burner is a snug spot where campers relax, while summer visitors paddle in the stream with an ice cream.
  • Hiding in the quiet village of Armscote, near Stratford-upon-Avon, The Fuzzy Duck (01608 682635) offers classic pub food with a sophisticated twist. Formerly the Fox & Goose, this one-time coaching inn also serves real ale and a good wine list. Pets can run free in the secure garden, where they’ll be welcomed with biscuits and blankets.
  • The Nags Head (01684 574373) in Malvern offers a choice of ales, a friendly welcome, and delightfully eclectic décor. Away from the lager taps is the much-loved Bathams Best, sublime liquid gold from the Black Country. Antique chairs are grouped around an open fire, and the low-beamed walls are wonderfully cluttered to keep eyes busy.
  • As a proper pub gem, The Unicorn (01584 873555) features sloping floors, mahogany panelling, and beamed ceilings. If you’re staying at a Shropshire campsite and looking to acclimatise to the relaxed pace of life, head here to nurse a pint of Ludlow Best in front of the fire. In summer, the beer garden overlooking the River Corve is a nice spot.
  • Considering the awards Titley’s Stagg Inn (01544 230221) has won for its grub (it’s got a Michelin star!), a visiting camper would be forgiven for thinking it’s purely a fine-dining establishment. The country inn is still a place where locals gather for a pint. There’s no jukebox—just the hum of good conversation and Herefordshire accents.
