About Our Campsite

The Bull i Thorn is a family friendly campsite with camping pods nestled in the heart of the beautiful Peak District. 

Our campsite is a great base to explore the many attractions the Peak District has to offer, the beautiful spa town of Buxton is only a 10 minute drive away while the historic market towns of Bakewell and Ashbourne are also within easy reach. The site is located close to the Tissington and High Peak Trails perfect for cyclists and walkers of all abilities.

If you require fuel for a fun packed active day exploring the Peaks,  you need look no further as the onsite Bull i Thorn cafe offers homemade locally sourced food and beverages. In fact you have a choice of three traditional country pubs, including the award winning Royal Oak and an ice cream parlour all within walking distance from our doorstep!

Camping Pods

Camping pod

At the Bull i Thorn we have 10 rustic camping pods to hire, ideal for camping in all types of weather!

Built from wood the camping pods provide a fantastic dry spacious camping area, included in the pods are lighting and electric (ideal for charging a phone or device). The pods are insulated to keep and have electric heater to keep you cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. 

Each pod has a covered veranda and fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

All pods are a short walk to the unisex showers and toilets (there is also separate family shower room with a toilet) and under-cover washing up facilities.

Pod Sizes

We have two different size pods available to hire:

  • ​6 x  standard pods - can accommodate up to 2 adults.
  • 4 x  family pods - these pods are ideal for families with young children (2 adults and 2 children) or up to 3 adults. 


Our rustic camping pods are a great alternative to a tent, you still need to bring everything you would need if you were camping, but enjoy the benefit of not having to pitch up a tent!
