Enjoy glorious views across the Derbyshire countryside when you pitch at Windy Harbour Farm Hotel Caravan and Camping Site, a family owned business on the fringes of the Peak District.
Here you will find 10 hardstanding super pitches that accommodate touring caravans and motorhomes. Every one of these pitches has a 16A electric hook-up, water and waste points, and external lighting. The fact that the pitches are all hardstanding means this is a great site to stay at in bad weather or the wintery months. In addition, tent campers can stay here, as there is a grass area dedicated to tent camping, too.
Facilities at Windy Harbour Farm Hotel Caravan and Camping Site are a little basic, however you will have all you need, especially as the touring pitches are fully serviced. There's just an amenities block with toilets, basins and showers.
This is also a dog friendly campsite and there's a dog walking and exercise area, which takes you through a field next to the site. Owners are requested to control their dogs and to always clean up after them.
As the name of this campsite suggests, it is part of the Windy Harbour Farm Hotel, which has bed and breakfast accommodation, in the form of one twin and five double en suite rooms, all elegantly furnished. You can enjoy a drink at the hotel's bar or maybe you'd like to dine here, too? Lunch and evening meals are served in the restaurant, plus you can get afternoon tea.
Camping and caravan holidays in the Peak District have long been popular and you can come to understand why when you pitch at Windy Harbour Farm Hotel Caravan and Camping Site. Love walking holidays? The Pennine Way, the Trans Pennine Trail and the Longdendale Trail are all nearby – and some of these can be followed on bike, too. There is also the Pennine Bridleway, which is the very first purpose-built bridleway for horse riders, those on mountain bikes and walkers. It's a fabulous way to take in the region's breathtaking views.
Famous Chatsworth House is less than an hour's drive from this campsite, in the heart of the Peak District and, for many, this is one of the region's must-see attractions. When you go here, it's worth wandering around nearby Bakewell, too, and maybe touring the Bakewell Old House Museum – and can you resist The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop or The Bakewell Pudding Parlour?
When you visit the Peak District, you can also follow one of a number of village trails. Use these to learn all about Hartington, Hathersage, Stoney Middleton and more.
Despite Windy Harbour Farm Hotel Caravan and Camping Site's rural feel, it is just a five-minute drive along the B6105 into the centre of Glossop itself. With plenty of shops, supermarkets and eateries, plus a post office, you can easily top up on your everyday essentials here, which is very useful when you are self catering. You can also be in Manchester in just 40 or 50 minutes by car, Huddersfield also a pretty, 40-minute drive away across the beautiful Peak District.
All of which means that Windy Harbour Farm Hotel Caravan and Camping Site is well placed for discovering the best this area has to offer, so why not pitch at this small site next time you go to the Peak District on your camping and caravan holidays.

Stayed 2 days in our motorhome. Owner, Graham, welcomed us and took time to explain facilities. Decent sized full service hardstandings. Toilets and shower available. Nearby hotel/pub also very welcoming. Magnificent views and easy reach of Glossop which allowed train access to Manchester. Will definitely return.
