Hayfield Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a charming park situated on the edge of the Peak District. We welcome tents and motorhomes to our park, and pets are also allowed on the site (no caravans permitted). Washing up facilities and chemical waste disposal, as well as access to Wi-Fi internet – useful for planning your day out or walking route across the Peak District.
The town of Hayfield itself is at the bottom of the Pennine Chain, so if you want to take on the challenging climbs of the area you have easy access to this part of the Pennines. Likewise, if you are more a casual rambler looking to get out and explore the gentle contours of the countryside, there are plenty of opportunities for you to do this. Traditional outdoor pursuits like fishing can also be indulged in nearby, while those looking to be more active can find places to hire bicycles or even go horse riding. Whether you have your mind set on something specific or simply want a perfect gateway to the Peak District and plan to explore at your own leisure, Hayfield Camping and Caravanning Club Site gives you great freedom and inspiration to do whatever you wish in the local area.
If the sprawling surround of the Peak District is not enough and you want to head into town, then the village of Hayfield is charming and has a selection of shops, pubs, and restaurants for you to stock up on travel essentials and enjoy as much of the local food and drink that you can. Further afield, you are only a short drive away from Greater Manchester and the outer city towns of Hyde, Stockport, and Cheadle, while you can also head into the city centre to experience one of the most modern and cosmopolitan urban centres in the UK.
Our park also offers great access to Yorkshire and the North Midlands, with Sheffield and Nottingham both cities that you should dedicate a day to exploring, and if you are an early starter a drive to the North Wales coast where you’ll find towns like Rhyl and Flint is also an option.
Whether you plan to explore the Peak District in full or use us as a base for exploring this diverse part of the UK, you won’t be disappointed by a stay at Hayfield Camping and Caravanning Club Site.

Over the past 20 years, we have visited this site regularly and have always enjoyed a good stay, whatever the weather. However, we have been unable to get over there since 2007, and were therefore really looking forward to our visit. However, the managers there now, although on the face of it quite inviting and pleasant, we quickly realised were in reality very patronising and ridiculously over the top in the way they behaved towards campers in general and to us in particular. What a pity - such a lovely place is being spoilt by two total eejits! perhaps we'll try again in a few years, by which time (hopefully) they will be gone.
