A warm welcome awaits you in the heart of the Peak District


A Peak District Christmas at Longnor Wood  

What could be more festive than a Christmas getaway in a Peak District glamping pod, Buxton hot tub lodge, Manifold caravan with hot tub or on one of our all-weather touring pitches at our static caravan park in Derbyshire open all year?  Longnor Wood is perfect for Christmas glamping.

The Peak District is spectacular at Christmas, with many of the local villages hosting Christmas markets and festive window displays festooned with twinkling lights. The area tends to be a little quieter and the hills of Mam Tor and Kinder Scout look beautiful as the Winter sun sets on a sprinkling of snow.  

Similarly our peaceful, secluded Peak District campsite is perfect for adults looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the festive period. We are one of the few campsites open at Christmas in the Peak District and with a selection of accommodation, hard-standing touring pitches and all weather tent pitches Longnor Wood is perfect for Christmas camping. We close between 3rd January and 2nd February and so are one of a small number of Peak District campsites open over Christmas.

Christmas at Chatsworth  

Christmas at Chatsworth is truly memorable. Chatsworth House is decorated for Christmas and open to visitors after Bonfire night. The Chatsworth Christmas market is always special for picking up some Peak District Christmas gifts and enjoying festive food and drink. Festive music in the Chatsworth Chapel. The grounds of Chatsworth Estate are normally decorated with festive lights and displays, where visitors can enjoy a brisk walk and a steaming hot chocolate as they take in the winter festivities.
