The proposed day walk will be between 16-20km (10-12.5mi) depending on the attendees and route selected.

Join us for a weekend of camping with an outdoor climb and walking options in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Our campsite situated in the picturesque village of Edale.

It is ideally placed for access to some of the best walking the Peak District has to offer.  Options for walks abound and, depending on preferences and weather, local highlights include: the Great Ridge; Win Hill; Kinder Scout and Ladybower Reservoir.  However for this camp I think a hike up Kinder Scout on the Saturday would be amazing! I also plan to do a walk from the camp site to Mam Tor on the Sunday, so no need to rush off home!

The campsite is close to two pubs in the village centre, both of which serve food. I will probably be booking a table for the Saturday night, so happy to add others to the booking. (I will give more details on this closer to the time, as I need to figure out which is the best for food) 

Jonny will be leading an outdoor climbing event on the Saturday - there will be spaces for 8 people. Please sign-up to the climbing event separately. 

For those who’d prefer a more relaxed weekend, you could simply chill at the campsite (hopefully in the sun!) or visit one of the nearby villages. That is also an option, the camp is beside a river, and tucked back from the road. Who could want anything more. 

Campsite Facilities

Facilities on the campsite are limited, but perfectly satisfactory. There are warm showers - these take 20p coins, so take some change. There is a lovely little cafe close-by and two pubs in a short walking distance. There is a small car park at the site, but we are limited to six cars so please car share wherever possible. Later arrivals will need to park off site, and probably in the public pay and display car park next door. 

Edale Railway station on the Hope Valley line is only a short walk away, so the site is easily accessible by train from Manchester or Sheffield (see location details below). 

Caravans and Campervans: Cannot be accommodated on this camp site. Sorry!
