Touring Caravans, Motorhomes, RV's and Trailer Tents in Derbyshire and the Peak District

Touring Pitches available with 16 amp electric hookup, hard standing or hard standing and grass, and a heated toilet and shower block

seasonal caravan pitches

Caravans, motorhomes and campervans benefit from a choice of pitch surfaces within a sheltered natural sun trap. All hard-standing or hard-standing with grass pitches are available, most having hedges at either side to provide greater privacy and shelter for wildlife. Caravan and motorhome pitches are located in the main pitching area on individual loop roads handy for the under-floor heated shower building, laundrette and children’s play area. 

All touring caravan pitches and motorhome pitches have 16 amp electrical hook-ups, some additionally have a fresh water supply and may also have a waste water disposal drain. Please specify at the time of booking if you would prefer a fully serviced pitch.


accessible caravans Rivendale’s site entrance is located on the right hand side of the A515 travelling north from Ashbourne towards Buxton. Touring Caravans and even large motorhomes usually find no difficulty negotiating the turn through the site gates and up the gently-sloping main access road. However, care must be taken negotiating the narrower loop roads between the planters within the main pitching area – assistance is available from reception if requested. 


The nature of the site means pitches vary in size and shape, therefore it is important to be clear about the
size of your caravan or motorhome and whether a caravan awning is required at the time of booking. Motorhomes of up to 44” in length have stayed at Rivendale, however, only a limited number of pitches are available for motorhomes of this length and care must be taken when negotiating the loop roads within the main pitching area with vehicles of this size.  


Motorhome wash out

caravans peak districtA new motorhome wash-out facility has been completed permitting motorhomes of up to 44’ in length with drop-tanks to empty them on site. Please note whilst this facility is provided without charge for motorhomes staying overnight with bio-degradeable chemicals in their holding tanks, there is a charge made for the disposal of waste from holding tanks containing non-biodegradeable chemicals – so please arrive on site with empty tanks or bio-degradeable products in them. Environmentally-friendly additives are available from the shop offering considerable savings per litre of waste treated compared to the highly toxic (usually blue) formaldehyde-based products – please help us protect our environment whilst saving your money!  


Caravan and motorhome security compares well with most locations – there is only one access road which leads past reception - rising bollards are used to restrict access in and out of site at night with caravans and motorhomes – see the booking page for further details. As well as this, we now have increased security throughout the site by adding additional 24/7 HD recorded CCTV cameras. These cover all major areas of the park, and in particular all access routes.

Seasonal Pitches and Caravan Storage

Due to high demand we have numerous seasonal pitches on site. These all have 16 amp electric, half hardstanding and half grass and run for 12 months. Please call Reception on 01335 310441 if you would like some more information on the seasonal pitches.

We also have secure caravan storage available immediately so if you're looking for somewhere to keep your caravan please call Reception on 01335 310441.


BRING A TORCH! Rivendale has minimal lighting so that you can enjoy the beautiful night sky. Even the main road and surrounding villages HAVE NO STREET LIGHTIN
G; a good torch and light-coloured or high visibility jacket ARE ESSENTIAL to avoid tripping over or being run over if walking along the lanes at night.

Rock pegs and a hammer are advisable as some areas of the park are stoney beneath the grass.

Note – Rock Pegs and torches are usually available for purchase in the shop.

Bio-degradeable chemical fluids ONLY in chemical toilets – or bring an empty cassette and purchase some from our shop. N.B. to encourage the use
of environmentally-friendly chemicals this is sold at a competitive rate per litre treated compared to most non-bio products.

 Please note that we do have Wifi - in our Stables Cafe there is half an hour free on each device you have, and on the main pitching area it is an external provider which is not always 100%. We are in a quarry here and in the middle of the Peak National Park so the Wifi is hit and miss.
