Visit the Peak District in your motorhome this year

Ashford In The Water

I’s not just us that thinks this gorgeous village in the Peak District deserves a mention but a number of other well known websites too.

Sheepwash bridge is a well known location within Ashford in the Water and its been named by the national trust as the best place in the country to play Poohsticks.

Staycations have become so much more popular as a result of Covid-19 and people are travelling more to the UK beauty spots

Places to eat

If you are thinking of spending the day in this gorgeous location, the village has lots of choice.  A hotel/restaurant, two pubs and a tea room provides a great choice whilst walking around.


There is plenty of walking and a great cycling route on the Monsal Trail which is traffic free and seems to go on forever.  Monsal Head is a great place to visit with amazing views that will simply take your breath away.

Close by

In less than a mile you will also find Thornbridge Hall, a grade 2 listed stately home. 
Chatsworth house and Chatsworth gardens are also within 5 miles from the village which means if you’re serious about cycling, these make great points to head to.

Places to stay

A couple of good motorhome and caravan sites are available close by.  With some good google reviews, Greenhills Touring and Camping Park seems to be a great choice.  Also close by is Park House Camping which has some great views of Monsal Head.
