So as a birthday treat (for me) my wife and I are hiring a Hymer for a few days next week. The place we are hiring it from recommended the Peak District and I have a idyllic vision of being able to drive around - stop at a pub for a lunch, go for a pleasant walk/explore somewhere in the village/area and then return to the pub for an evening meal and then 'camp' overnight; visiting a different place each day. Can anyone recommend any places?

Car parks in Baslow and Bakewell (agricultural centre) seem to have MH parking in them.

From Baslow you can walk to Chatsworth House and the village has lots of food choices

Bakewell is a tourist town with a busy cattle market on a Monday

Does one have to tart up to go to Bakewell ?


Great coincidence I was looking at bakewell as a stop over on my way back from Scotland and Druridge bay meet

Thanks everyone for the tips - going to ring round a few pubs to see if anyone else is doing it. Pub car parks are about as wild as we'd like to go!

There are some tarts in Bakewell but the local dish is a pudding

The carpark in Baslow is 5.50 for the day and night to 8am. 6pm to 8am was cheap, can't remember exactly. Didn't say anything about no sleeping.

I didn't have any change for the machine so used a britstop up the road instead.

I am off for a week in the Peak District before a jaunt thru Normandy a week later.

The theme is little Switzerlands.

Matlock area and then the Orne Valley, Suisse Normande.

Cheating a bit for the English bit and staying on a cheap campsite. 75 for 6 nights seems a bargain.
