The Bull I’ Th’ Thorn’s spacious campsite is just as perfect as the pub. With 32 large grass pitches, 10 of which have electric hook up, it’s the ideal base to enjoy this stunning area of the Peak District National Park. For those who don’t have their own tent, no problem, there are empty bell tents with room for four people and two furry friends, with a fire pit and picnic bench, so you can simply bring your sleeping bag and pillows and enjoy rural camping at its finest. (Please note, the campsite doesn’t accept caravans or large motorhomes. Camper vans up the size of a VW Transporter are very welcome).

No cooking gear, no worries, because The Bull I’ Th’ Thorn is open for breakfast at weekends from  8.30am to 11.30am, ready and waiting to rustle up their fabulous Bulli Breakfast, Veggie Breakfast, or Bulli or Veggie Baps. So you’ll be fuelled and ready to head out for fun-filled adventures, and of course you’ll have the pub and pizzeria to return to at the end of the day.

The campsite also has spotless toilets and hot showers, together with a washing-up area and three drinking water stations dotted around the site. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten some essentials, there’s even an onsite camping shop too.

With uninterrupted views, The Bull I’ Th’ Thorn’s campsite is the perfect place to wake in the morning listening to the birdsong and relax in the evening watching spectacular sunsets, with a pizza in one hand and a beer in the other!
