Rivendale lies in an elevated position in the heart of the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire. Surrounded by spectacular scenery, within walking distance of Dove Dale, Eaton and Biggin Dales – all accessible directly from site, Rivendale is unsurpassed as a centre for walking and hiking.
It is also ideal for cyclists with the Tissington Trail just 100 metres from site, linking to the High Peak Trail, Trails Triangle and Limestone Way.
On site facilities include luxurious under-floor heated shower and toilet buildings and a restaurant and bar. Campers can go “back to nature” in our 10 acre wild flower meadow or use the sheltered main pitching area.
We also offer Yurts and Camping Pods, some with wood-burning stoves so our clients can enjoy camping and barbecues regardless of the weather and not have to pack up a wet muddy tent. Note there are only mobile showers and toilets on the meadow.
Camp fires are permitted within firepits in the camping meadow and BBQs are permitted in the main pitching area subject to observing our health and safety rules.
Also of interest is the wildlife including a superb orchid display (late June and early July) Badgers, Foxes, Crested Newts, and a huge variety of birds on site, making the site popular with Bird-watchers.
Astronomers value the darkness to better see the stars.
