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 Shrewsbury with horseback riding guide

Overview

Shrewsbury sits along the River Severn in Shropshire, where hilly woodlands and riverside strolls offer a cosy escape from the city. Explore historic Shrewsbury Castle and learn about local military history in the Regimental Museum before heading into the country for nature walks past more archaeological and historic sites. Visit Iron Age forts with a hearty hike up the Shropshire Hills AONB, or admire prehistoric architecture with an educational park ranger tour through Peak District National Park. A short drive west to Wales offers coastal excitement in Eryri National Park, with accessible trails along the water and views of the Irish Sea. Pitch a tent in a peaceful meadow, explore caravan camping in the hills, or try a luxurious glamping pod to enjoy creative camping experiences—all near Shrewsbury.

Where to go

Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Covering almost a quarter of the landscape in Shropshire, Shropshire Hills AONB is a cosy woodland escape with walks through pastures, cycling trails past villages, and paths along river valleys. Take in popular sights like The Wrekin, where campers can ascend the hill and admire the Iron Age hillfort that awaits at the top. The 552/553 bus route and shuttle make this AONB easily accessible by public transit, and a range of tent pitches, glamping pods, and tiny home rentals offer comfortable accommodation on-site.

Snowdonia National Park (Eryi)

With nine mountain ranges and 74 miles of coastline, Snowdonia is the largest national parkland in Wales. Take a steep hike up the rocky Pyg Track, or wander along the accessible Benar Boardwalk for tranquil views over Cardigan Bay. Several official campsites inside the park make it easy to stay, though campers are advised to book early in summer. Wild camping may be available with landowner permission; otherwise, campers can explore an array of private tent pitches and caravan sites in the hills and meadows.

Peak District National Park

Peak District National Park covers four counties and over 1,400 square kms, making it a diverse destination for mountain biking, accessible walks, and learning about local history. Journey through the past with walks past prehistoric sites to medieval castles on self-guided tours or a park ranger-assisted educational visit. Miles Without Stiles provide numerous accessible trails for all ages and mobility levels, while horse riding, rock climbing at Stanage Edge, and caving in Titan Cave offer even more ways to discover the Peak District. Stay overnight at a national park campsite, or explore unique getaways like private glamping yurts for a luxury experience.

When to go

Camping near Shrewsbury is most popular from June to August, when warm weather averages 21°C. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall tend to be the driest, though campers are advised to bring a few layers for chilly nights. Rain and snow are common in winter months. However, pleasant snowy landscapes and few crowds draw plenty of campers to Shrewsbury for a winter holiday escape.
