Camping, Glamping & Self Catering

Whether you’re a camper, a glamper, or looking for fully-fledged self-catering holiday accommodation in an unbeatable location, then Newfold Farm is the place to be! The variety of camping options enables all your family to join in the fun. If you’re an experienced camper with all the equipment, then the grass or hard standing pitches are for you. If you want to give camping a try but don’t yet have camping essentials, then join your friends and family by staying in one of the fully furnished bell tents. Or maybe you really do prefer the comfort of four walls – then you can still be in on the fun by staying in the onsite holiday cottage, sleeping up to 6!

Newfold Farm’s campsite has been very carefully laid out to ensure that the site is as traffic-free as possible, making it a safe and enjoyable place for families to enjoy this wonderful outdoor space whilst relaxing and taking in the wonderful surrounding landscape.

Wonderful Campsite with Dramatic Views

The largest camping field at Newfold Farm is Grouse Field, a large, traffic-free grass field for tents with gorgeous views of the Edale Valley. Visitors can soon enjoy the brand-new shower and toilet block here too – due to be ready March 2024. Separate parking is available adjacent to the field.

Sparrowhawk Field at Newfold Farm offers a mix of grass pitches, suitable for tents and campervans, and hardstanding pitches for caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and roof top tents, with electric hook up available. This field has close proximity to all facilities, and fabulous views of the Great Ridge.

As you can imagine, due to the facilities and fabulous location, in the peak season Newfold Farm can be very popular, so to allow more space and freedom, Curlew Field is an overflow field which cannot be booked, but can be allocated on arrival during busier times.

You’ll be pleased to hear that all camping fields at Newfold Farm are dog-friendly too, so your four-legged friends can join in the adventures! (Please note that dogs are not allowed in the Bell Tents.)

In addition to hiking, Edale is a popular destination for cyclists and those who enjoy other outdoor adventures, such as rock climbing and caving in the many nearby caverns that this beautiful area of the Peak District has to offer.
