    Hi there,

    We're looking for a good campsite in the Peak District (preferably northern Peak District, but location not too critical) that will be open in November and is within easy walking distance of a decent pub. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've had a look online but am struggling to find something that ticks all the boxes.

    Thank you!

    Windy Harbour at Glossop is pretty good. It's a fairly easy walk into Glossop, Hadfield or Padfield for a pub but you might want a taxi back as the hills are bit steep :D

    You're quite safe in November because @PenelopePitstop has gone back to Spain :D

    We stayed at Greenhills at Ashford in the Water - village with pubs that do good food a 5-10 minute walk (depending on how fast you walk). Their website says they are open in November. Very handy for Bakewell.

    That GJH is such a cheeky young man!
    We haven't been on Windy Harbour this summer as it has been full of contractors working on the pylons in the Longdendale Valley. Word is out that they'll be there for 2 years!!
    We stayed at Lymefield Garden Centre which has a small Cs. It's in Broadbottom near Glossop.
    Coopers Farm at Edale is a really good choice if you like walking. The grumpy old man is really quite nice when you get talking to him. We've been going there since about 1980. Small tent days . Went back this year and it was just the same as ever

    Pudding rooms open all year and 50mtrs to a pub. Haven't stayed there but visited shop to buy goodies when we stayed at a club site, Blackwell I think next to Carsington water.

    Another vote for cc at Castleton, all hardstanding, 10 mins walk into the village, loads of walks direct from the site.
