Hayfield – Camping and Caravanning Club Site
At the foot of the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park, Hayfield is the starting point of some of the area's most stunning walks, where you can enjoy anything from a gentle stroll to a more challenging climb.
If you prefer the former, the village of Hayfield (the backdrop for the BBC’s TV drama The Village) is a 15-minute stream-side stroll away. For the latter, a walk up Lantern Pike rewards you with a 360 vista over seven counties. The walk up Kinder Scout from the west side is one of the most popular routes in the Peak District.
Afterwards, catch your breath and soak up the views from the site itself, where on-site facilities include a family/accessible washroom, drying facilities, children’s play area and a well-stocked site shop.
