Castleton Caravan Club Site, Castleton, Derbyshire, S33 8WB, Tel 01433620636

To Find Site:-From Chesterfield take A619 towards Bakewell, at roundabout just through Baslow take A624. In about seven miles turn right onto B6049 signed for Castleton. At T junction turn left onto A6187 and site is on right in about 2 miles. Be warned that sat navs may well direct you down some unsuitable roads for towing. The B6049 is generally fine but care is required as the road narrows in a couple of places.

This campsite, which is open all year, is situated right in the heart of the Peak District within walking distance of Castleton. All 93 pitches are on hardstandings although there are two categories, awning and non-awning pitches. The latter generally being slightly smaller. There are several service points around the site which should put most pitches within reasonable distance. For motorhomes there is a separate drive to service point. The toilet block complex is quite large and consists of two buildings. The main building houses the toilet/showers with dishwash facilities on the outside. The interior, whilst kept perfectly clean, as you would expect, is a little dated now compared to more modern blocks. The second building houses a laundry room, drying room, childrenís recreation room including table tennis and pool and finally an information room. Other than the recreation room there are no other play facilities for children on this campsite. Reception sells a few essentials and Calor Gas cylinders can be exchanged. WiFi is available on this site and access can be purchased online.

The beauty of this campsite is that it is right in the heart of the Peak District. There are many opportunities for walks, both long and short, direct from the site. If you donít want to use your vehicle whilst staying here, Castleton is only a short walk away. It has two small general stores where provisions can be purchased although larger supermarkets are about 8/10 miles away and instructions on how to find them are in the site information room. Castleton has a good selection of cafes and pub restaurants. (We ate at the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese Inn which was reasonably priced) Buses run from Castleton into Sheffield and all points between. Castleton is famous for its Blue John mines which are now visitor attractions. Next to the large car park in town is a small, but interesting, Visitor Centre with free access.
