Peak District gets new camping guide
Bookmark and Share
The Peak District is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe, so it is hardly surprising that an extensive camping and caravanning guide for the region has been welcomed with open arms.

During the summer months thousands of visitors don their walking boots to tackle Black Hill, Mam Tor or the distinctively-shaped Thorpe Cloud.

After packing the right gear - even in the warmest of summers a waterproof jacket never goes amiss - finding accommodation is the next most important thing on a ramblers' to do lists. So, anything that makes finding a campsite easier is going to be hugely beneficial to holidaymakers.

After an extensive period of collaboration between the area's official tourism board - Visit Peak District and Derbyshire - and The Camping and Caravanning Club, a glossy, 34-page guide has been created for the 2012 season.

All the sites in the booklet are graded and their amenities are listed - so people will be able to separate rustic, isolated sites from busier, family-friendly pitches.

YHA Camping Barns are also included in the list, so all bases are covered.

David James, chief executive at Visit Peak District and Derbyshire, said: "More and more people opt to stay at home, either for their main holiday or for more frequent short breaks.
"This updated guide is a mine of information for anyone wanting to pitch their tent or park their caravan or motor home at a wide variety of value-for-money locations."

He added that thanks to the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics this summer would be a "landmark year" for British tourism and the peak district was hoping to capitalise on that.

So, while the guide is a handy addition to Peak District holidaying literature, it is likely that it will encourage advanced bookings - so holidaymakers should act fast if they are planning to don their walking boots for a summer getaway in Derbyshire.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801368432-ADNFCR
