Campsite facilities

North Lees campsite offers a fully-equipped shower block with separate men's and women's showers and toilets. We also offer a dedicated disabled toilet and shower facility.

We provide a washing-up area and recycling bins are provided throughout the site.

Please note: we do not permit charcoal barbecues or open fires.

What does the site look like? I don't want to camp in a parking lot!

Fear not! At North Lees campsite you really will feel like you are in the Peak District National Park.

The site consists of three gently sloping fields with car parking spaces that separate the camping area, but still easily accessible. We also provide wheelbarrows to help transport kit to your perfect tent pitch. North Lees is ideally suited to small tents and there is limited space on site for large tents. We regret that we can not accommodate mega domes and tents larger than five metres in length.

I have a camper van, can I still come?

North Lees campsite does not provide hard-standing or electric hook-ups for camper vans. Anyone sleeping in a vehicle on site must park in one of the car parking spaces and will be charged per person, per vehicle. However, depending on availability we may have limited camper van spots that are slightly separated from the main parking area.

Motor homes are not allowed.

What kind of supplies do I need?

North Lees campsite prides itself on its isolation and secluded location. As such please be aware that the nearest shops are in Hathersage (1.5 miles south) which is a short walk or drive away.

How to do I get there?

The campsite is accessible by public transport and if you arrive with a valid public transport ticket, you can receive a discount of 50p per stay.
