Looking for a get-away-from-it-all camping experience?

Enjoy peace and quiet at North Lees campsite and wake up to bird-song, Stanage Edge and the great outdoors.

North Lees is located in a sheltered valley, 1.5 miles north of Hathersage. It is within short walking distance of numerous world-class climbing, bouldering, cycling, and walking routes plus fantastic seasonal bird and wildlife watching opportunities.

North Lees campsite is an ideal base for those seeking quiet outdoor recreation in stunning surroundings and for visitors wishing to explore the Peak District National Park. The nearby woodlands, farmland and moorland are managed for conservation and form part of the Stanage-North Lees estate which we manage.

How do I book?

You can book your pitch online using the table below. If you are a group larger than five people please email

Please note: If a date is grey, this means we are fully booked.

Important Information: Car Parking at our site is limited. If during the booking process you are not offered the option of Grass pitch with reserved parking (Bay …) it means we have no more parking space available on site for your chosen dates.

When you book please be aware that we are an open plan campsite. The "site" that you book allows you to pitch your tent anywhere on our grass fields. Visitors are not allowed to drive vehicles (cars, motorbikes, campervans, etc) on to the grass. To bring a vehicle you must book a pitch with reserved parking and park in your pre-allocated parking bay.

If you don't want the hassle of carrying and putting up a tent, you can also book one of our camping pods online.

Booking ahead of time is preferable during the summer, especially on holiday weekends.

You may also be interested in booking a nearby Ranger Guided Walk to compliment your stay!

Cattiside CottageSomething a bit special: Cattis-side Cottage

Just moments away from North Lees campsite itself and nestled privately in the adjacent hill, Cattiside is a newly-renovated, two-bedroomed self-catering opportunity.

Campsite facilities

  • 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 (accompanying our accessible pod)
  • A covered, exterior washing-up area and recycling bins are provided throughout the site.
  • Wheelbarrows are provided to allow guests to take larger quantities of equipment from their vehicles into the camping areas.
  • Our reception area has ice creams, a variety of cold drinks and useful items to purchase such as maps and guidebooks, gifts, along with a selection of small camping sundries.

Please note: we do not allow the burning of any solid fuel (i.e. wood or charcoal). This includes single-use barbeques. This is to reduce fire risk to fragile surrounding habitats and wildlife areas.

What does the site look like?

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. North Lees is ideally suited to small tents and there is limited space on site for large tents and Gazebos/event shelters which attract a £15 surcharge per stay which is added during the booking process.

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.

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, although that will include a 30 minute walk.
