Rowter Farm, Castleton, Derbyshire, Peak District National Park
Rowter Farm offers campsite accommodation located just outside of the beautiful village of Castleton in Derbyshire. We are perfectly situated within the beautiful Peak District National Park, which is a haven for walkers and climbers.
If you and your brood are active, outdoorsy types, and your kids enjoy nothing better than a good brisk walk scrambling up and down hills and rocks, then Rowter Farm deserves a visit.
We are a pet friendly campsite that truly is the perfect base for those wanting to explore the beauty of the National Park.
A short walk from the site takes you past Windy Knoll Cave, where prehistoric bones from wolves, bison, bears, hares and reindeer were discovered, to the summit of Mam Tor (or Mother Hill), once the home to ancient Celtic tribes. To give you some idea of the wonderful sense of space here, site owner Sarah Mark grew up on Rowter Farm and finds the wide open landscapes of nearby Edale a bit ‘claustrophobic’!
The farm sits at the head of the Hope Valley, some 230 metres above sea level, and just above the spectacularly steep sided Winnats Pass. The best time to visit the farm is during the early summer, when the children can enjoy some country sights and sounds, sheep being rounded up for shearing, lambs frolicking in nearby fields and swallows swooping in and out of the farm buildings. The chickens scratching around the farmyard and goats and cows in the fields can be seen all season.
Given the ups and downs of camping, Rowter Farm should be high on anyone’s list.
There is a host of attractions and beautiful sites surrounding our campsite and we are sure that there is something to suit all tastes.
