We would like everyone who stays at our campsite to have an enjoyable time, so we politely ask that you observe a few simple campsite rules.

Arrival Times

After 1pm and before 9pm. To avoid disturbing other campers and our immediate neighbours, we must respectfully request that you do not arrive after 9pm.

Early check in can be pre-booked at an additional charge, subject to availability.

If you're arriving at our campsite without booking in advance, we recommend you aim to arrive as soon as possible after 1pm to secure a pitch, or to email for information.

Visitors must register at reception before pitching. Should reception be closed when you arrive then your allocated pitch details will be displayed at reception; please call in and register when reception reopens.

If you have pre-booked your pitch and circumstances beyond your control prevent you from arriving within these times, please contact the campsite who will do their best to assist.

Departure times

Please leave your pitch by 11am on your day of departure. If you wish to extend your stay, please inform reception before 6pm the day before.

Late check out may be possible subject to availability, and at an additional charge. Please speak to our team on site.

Minimum Stay

Weekends are subject to a two night minimum stay. All bookings over a Bank Holiday weekend are subject to a three night minimum stay. Over weekends we will always try to fit in backpackers (arriving on foot or bicycle) wanting to stay one night but they will be bookable on the day and subject to availability.


If booking a pitch in the upper field, parking of cars will be in a marked area at the side of the Upper Field with wheelbarrows available to help move your belongings to your pitch.. If booking a pitch in the lower field cars will need to be parked in the parking area approx. 120m away.


Dogs are welcome on site (maximum of two per pitch), but please notify us at the time of booking. Please be aware that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and exercised away from other campers. Please pick up after your dogs right away.

Quiet please

We ask that our visitors are considerate to their neighbours at all times, but we have ‘quiet please’ between 10pm and 7am.


Pitches are marked in the Lower Field but the Upper Field has unmarked pitching. Please speak to the team on site on arrival, they will direct you to spaces. Please ensure that you leave at least a 6 metre gap between tents.

We do not accept vehicles over 5.5m long due to the narrow lane leading to the hamlet of Upper Booth.


We offer discounted rates to organised groups such as educational groups, DofE, Scouts, Guides etc to the site at certain times of the year. Proof of group status will be required when booking.

All group leaders must complete a group booking form detailing the number in their party and the number of tents and vehicles.

All group bookings must be made via the booking office and cannot be made online. Email a group request to our bookings team on Please note that the person making the booking, the group leader, must be at least 18 years of age.

We also welcome small groups of families/friends provided that they are well-behaved and respectful of our other guests. We have two options; our large Crowden Brook camping area is suitable for groups bringing a maximum of 3 tents (6m x 4m max) or alternatively, individual pitches can be booked on either the Upper or Lower fields. Just add a note under ‘specific requirements’ so that we can identify the linked bookings. Please note that we can’t guarantee adjacent pitches, as we operate on a first come first served basis. Please email for more information.

Fires & Barbecues

For fire safety, campfires and disposable BBQs are not allowed within the Peak District National Park. Barbecues are permitted in our Upper Field, provided they are raised off the ground. Ask the campsite team for stones if necessary. Out of respect for our neighbours we do not allow barbecues in our Lower Field. On our Crowden Brook pitches we allow the use of gas appliances only, due to the higher fire risk potential in this area.


Cooking inside tents is NOT permitted and can be lethal due to carbon monoxide poisoning.


Smoking is not allowed on the site.

Special requests

Special requests, including requests for adjacent camping pitches, must be indicated to us at the time of booking. We will do our best to honour them but they cannot be guaranteed.

Problem or complaint

Every reasonable care will be taken to ensure that the campsite amenities are presented to a high standard. Should you find any cause for complaint, please immediately contact one of the campsite staff, so that reasonable steps can then be taken to rectify the problem. National Trust will not normally make any refunds in respect of complaints made after the guest’s departure from the campsite if the guest did not make the problem or complaint known to staff during their stay. You will receive a post trip survey within a couple of weeks of your holiday.

All complaints made after the guest's departure should be made in writing by post or email to:
