Camping in the Peak District

Hey guys,
After exams my friends and I went on a little camping trip to the peak district. Camping is always something I've loved so I'm so grateful to have a group of friends who also enjoy camping. We stayed on a farm near a place called Edale, we were so lucky with the weather and it was the perfect way to unwind after the exam period. We went on some lovely walks and then just chilled with some cards in the evenings.  

On the Thursday we loaded up the car to bursting and with me in the front attempted to navigate to the campsite. We had a veteran peak districter with us but even so there was a bit of a swerve off the motorway when we nearly missed our exit.

We stopped in Bakewell and I had my first ever Bakewell pudding which I have mixed feelings about, I really enjoyed the taste but the texture kind of freaked me out slightly. After our puddings and tea we walked to Chatsworth and sat and had a picnic in front of the house.  

My boyfriend had booked the campsite and had assured us girls that there were showers and toilets, so naturally when we got there I was keen to check out the standard of these facilities. My dear boyfriend started leading me towards a very dodgy looking building, he opened the door for me to look in and I was horrified to see one dark, grim toilet and a lot of cobwebs. One look at where he'd brought me and the worry on his face started to show, thankfully these were the old toilet blocks and there was actually a very nice shower block further up the field. Now I don't think I'm massively high maintenance but 3 full days walking in 20 degree heat definitely required showers so it was lovely that we could freshen up after the day. The campsite we stayed at was called upper booth farm and I would definitely recommend it, it's not too busy and is the perfect distance away from civilisation. It's in a beautiful valley and only a 30 minute walk away from Edale I would recommend this for families especially but also for groups of people who just want to have a bit of a chilled getaway with some beautiful views, you can even get fresh eggs in the morning from their chickens!

Overall we had a great time and I got a lovely tan which was an added bonus. At our campsite there wasn't any signal so I just kept my phone off for the whole time and that was such a nice break.  The only makeup I took with me was some mascara and the Khiels BB cream and that was mainly because it contains factor 50 SPF which was a lifesaver.

Hope you like the pictures

Lots of Love
