    We're heading back darn sarf today with a night to kill so fancy a night in the Peak District.

    Ideally a nice camp near water for walkies and within walking distance of nice pub.

    Any ideas or recommendations?

    Thanks in advance

    Edale is beautifully remote but they do have a great pub.

    We spent the weekend at Hayfield C&CC. Site was nice and flat - scenic good for walking up Kinder Scout etc. Nice pubs for food. Facilites were absolutely spotless (although we didn't use them) plenty of people in PVC who were.
    Worst part was the access through Hayfield itself is VERY tight (they dont accept caravans due to this) and making our way in on Friday in the dark in our first trip in this bigger MH was very hairy!
